President Biden is continuing to push for a bipartisan border security bill in the Senate. Biden met with Speaker Mike Johnson and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday, with the White House saying he "reiterated that Congressional Republicans should stop playing politics and act quickly." Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced Sunday that the Senate is planning to take up the border deal as a stand-alone measure this week.       Former President Trump's defense team is expected to rest its case today in his criminal hush money trial. Also, it's unclear if Trump will testify in his own defense. Attorneys for Trump reportedly told Judge Juan Merchan they were calling only three witnesses, but that was subject to change.       Dozens of tornadoes are possible throughout the day today and into the night, particularly across Iowa and into northwest Illinois and southwest Wisconsin. It's part of a severe weather outbreak forecast across the Plains and Midwest, bringing the risk of dangerous thunderstorms from northern Missouri into Wisconsin.       The cargo ship that brought down the Francis Scott Key Bridge is now safely docked at the Port of Baltimore. It was refloated during high tide Monday morning and five tugboats helped to guide the massive vessel the two-and-a-half miles to the Seagirt Marine Terminal. That's where the ship, which still has a portion of roadway from the bridge on its bow, will remain for weeks.       A granddaughter of Elvis Presley is suing to stop the sale of "The King's" Graceland mansion. Attorneys representing Riley Keough [[ KEE-oh ]] say a temporary restraining order has been issued for the auction, which was scheduled to be held this Thursday. Keough inherited the Memphis home after her mother, Lisa Marie Presley, died last year. Lisa Marie had owned the estate since her father's death in 1977.        A new lawsuit claims a Pennsylvania teen had to be resuscitated in March when he went into cardiac arrest after drinking Panera Bread's Charged Lemonade. The suit comes just two weeks after the restaurant announced it would discontinue the drink. It's at least the fourth lawsuit filed against Panera over the beverage.
