President Trump today threw cold water on a NY Times report that Stephen Feinberg would be brought in to lead a review of the nation's intelligence agencies. During a news conference, Trump said:

I hope we'll be able to straighten that out without using anybody else. [Feinberg] is a very successful, very talented man. He's offered his services and it's something we may take advantage of, but I don't think we'll need that at all because of the fact that, you know, I think that we're going to be able to straighten it out very easily on its own.

Feinberg is a fellow New York billionaire and the founder and CEO of private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management.

Firefighters in the western U.S. were facing "critical fire weather conditions," as a rapidly spreading new wildfire in Northern California prompted fresh evacuations Sunday.

Why it matters: Wildfires have burned a record 3.6 million acres in California this year, killing 26 people and razing over 7,600 structures, per Cal Fire. Utility provider Pacific Gas & Electric cut power to 11,000 customers early Sunday and planned outages for 54,000 others later in the day because of fire risks.
