The Wall Street Journal reports that a lawyer for Stormy Daniels purchased the rights to a video on Monday of her taking a polygraph test in 2011 about her alleged affair with President Donald Trump.

Why it matters: The polygrapher, Ronald Slay, told the Journal that her response "about having unprotected sex with Mr. Trump in July 2006 to be truthful," and her statement that she was promised a spot on The Apprentice was inconclusive.

Why it matters: Former directors Tom Frieden, Jeffrey Koplan and David Satcher and acting head Richard Besser served in parts of the Obama, Bush and Clinton administrations. They said they "cannot recall over our collective tenure a single time when political pressure led to a change in the interpretation of scientific evidence."

Why it matters: More than 360,000 Chinese students are enrolled at U.S. colleges. Many of them could be forced to return to China if the rule change is implemented.
