Breaking tonight, we are following three big stories at this hour. Just a short time ago, President Trump’s physician said the commander-in-chief has tested negative for the coronavirus on consecutive days.

Republicans on the Committee touted Judge Barrett’s status as a law professor and legal scholar.
