    Here's a roundup of news trending across the nation and world today. What to know now  1. Trump communications collected: Rep. Devin Nunes, (R-California), announced Wednesday that private conversations between President Donald Trump and his transition team may have been improperly distributed to spy agencies after they were inadvertently collected as part of an intelligence investigation of other targets. Nunes said he was troubled enough by information provided to him about the communications to go to the White House on Wednesday to inform the president in person. Nunes said the information collected had nothing to do with the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The FBI said Monday it is investigating any possible connection between the Trump campaign and Russian meddling in the election. 2. Health care vote: A vote on a health care bill that is essential in repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act – Obamacare – is set to take place Thursday in the House. Trump and leaders in the House have lobbied members to vote for the bill, but as of late Wednesday, they had not locked down enough votes for it to pass. The president has warned those who don’t vote for the bill that they could face consequences come re-election. 3. London attack: A man stabbed a London police officer to death Wednesday after he ran down pedestrians on a bridge near Parliament in a terror attack on the British government. Four people, including the attacker, were killed, and at least 40 others injured. British lawmakers sheltered in place in Parliament for hours after the mid-afternoon attack. One woman was pulled alive from the waters of the Thames after she was either knocked off the Westminster Bridge or jumped to avoid the car. The suspect has not been identified. An early morning raid in the London area Thursday netted seven people suspected of being involved with the attack.  4. Wisconsin shootings: A Wisconsin police officer and three others were killed Wednesday in what law enforcement officials said was a domestic violence incident that led to three separate shootings. The shootings took place in a bank, at an attorney’s office and in an apartment complex near Everest, Wisconsin, which is about 90 miles west of Green Bay, Wisconsin.  5. Sweet 16: The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament continues Thursday as the next round of playoffs gets underway. Sixteen teams – the Sweet 16 – will play over the next two days as we make our way to the Elite Eight, then the Final Four. The championship game is set for April 3.  And one more Nominations for the Daytime Emmy Awards were announce Wednesday. The CBS daytime drama “Young and the Restless” snagged 25 nominations, with ABC’s “General Hospital” and CBS’ “Bold and the Beautiful” getting 23. NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” got 22 nods.

  • Prior to Monday’s premiere of “Dancing with the Stars” Season 24, former figure skater and “DWTS” champion Kristi Yamaguchi took to Twitter to wish fellow former figure skater Nancy Kerrigan good luck in the worst way possible. >> Read more trending news Hours before Kerrigan took the stage, Yamaguchi tweeted, “So excited for you @NancyAKerrigan ! Can’t wait to see you grace that ballroom floor, break a leg!” Yes, that’s right. She told Kerrigan, victim of the famous 1994 attack, in which she was assaulted with a police-style baton to the knee, to “break a leg.” Just before the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit that year, a man, who had been paid by Kerrigan rival Tonya Harding’s ex-husband, struck her on the right knee, injuring her leg. While it wasn’t broken, Kerrigan did suffer cuts, bruises and swelling and walked with a limp. Twitter responded with generally surprised reactions. Of course, Yamaguchi was just employing a common -- if ill-fitting, considering Kerrigan’s history -- phrase, but that didn’t stop the internet from freaking out over it. Yamaguchi has not clarified her comment, nor has she deleted the tweet. Kerrigan took the joke in stride, tweeting, “Thank you @kristiyamaguchi for the advise (sic)! It definitely is helping!”

  • Former Spice Girl singer Mel B has filed for divorce, The Associated Press reported. The TV personality, birth name Melanie Brown, was married to producer Stephen Belafonte since July 2007. She cited irreconcilable differences.  >> Read more trending news According to People, which obtained divorce papers, Brown has Dec. 28 listed as the date of separation. She requested that the court terminate the ability to ask for spousal support. The couple are parents to 5-year-old Madison Brown Belafonte. The petition is seeking joint legal and physical custody. People reported that the divorce comes a few years after speculation emerged that Brown may have been physically abused by Belafonte. In December 2014, the singer was on seen on the U.K. version of “The X Factor” with bruises, days after being hospitalized with severe stomach pains. Belafonte addressed the rumors at the time on Twitter, saying they were “quite disgusting” and “untrue.” In February, Brown posted a photo of herself and Belafonte on Instagram.  “We have been through everything that would normally tear couples apart and we have come out on the other side stronger,” she wrote in the caption.
  • The Daily Caller says The Blaze TV, the conservative media company behind Tomi Lahren’s show “Tomi,” has suspended her show for “at least one week, starting Monday,” according to their sources. Lahren created a minor storm of controversy after the contentious commentator revealed that she was pro-choice. In an interview on “The View,” Lahren insisted that it’s not ideologically sound to believe in limited government while advocating for government-mandated abortion restrictions. In the same interview, she called out conservatives who opposed government intrusion while maintaining intrusive laws on abortion as “hypocrites.” Coupled with her famously aggressive rhetoric that’s gotten her in trouble with coworkers before, Lahren’s comments may have been the last straw for her at the media company. The Daily Caller reports that though her contract runs through September, she may depart the company before then.
  • This was a tough post for Rico Rodriguez.
