The House is expected to pass its version of the tax overhaul plan to slash corporate tax rates and reduce personal income tax rates while eliminating some deductions and credits. The vote is expected to pass along party line.

The Senate Finance Committee is aiming to pass its separate version by week's end. But some GOP senators, most vocally Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, want changes.

Plus, LA radio personality Leeann Tweeden has joined the #MeToo campaign and is alleging Democratic Senator Al Franken of Minnesota of sexual misconduct.
