Washington Wizards point guard John Wall is stuck at home with the NBA Finals on the horizon, and he pointed the finger of blame at his bench on Sunday. "We need to help our bench," per CSN's Chase Hughes (h/t Dan Feldman of NBC Sports). "Just to be honest, that was our downfall in each series that we had in the [Eastern Conference] semifinals, our bench got out played." He also took issue with Kelly Oubre's playing time. "I think Kelly Oubre could've played a little bit more. But Coach [Scott Brooks] makes the decision, and we stick behind him 100 percent." Wall and the Wizards lost to the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the second round after a six-game battle with the Atlanta Hawks in the first. Oubre averaged just 6.5 points per game against Boston but shot 51.6 percent from the field and reached double figures in three of the seven contests.

Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly on Sunday denounced the leaking of classified foreign intelligence as darn close to treason. British officials briefly suspended intelligence sharing with the U.S. last Thursday after information relating to their investigation into the Manchester attacks was leaked to the press. On Friday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he took full responsibility for the leaks, which the British attributed to the United States. During an interview on NBC's Meet the Press, Kelly said the leaking of such intelligence was darn close if not over the line of treason. If [the leak] came from the United States, it’s totally unacceptable, Kelly told host Chuck Todd. And I dont know why people do these kind of things, but it’s borderline, if not over the line, of treason.

Rossi also qualified third for the Indy 500, which suggests he has a lightning-fast car equipped to vie for a second consecutive victory. One thing Rossi is doing to increase his chances of success is refusing to rest on his laurels after what he accomplished last year, per Tony DiZinno of NBC Sports: "As much fun as it is to talk about last year, it's time to regroup ourselves and prove ourselves once again. And there's a lot of work we have to do to accomplish that, and be able to embrace the little things more. "I'm now looking forward to a much different experience. One thing I'll definitely keep in focus is Sunday morning itself, and just look at it as another race." There are so many variables involved with the Indianapolis 500 that make it a huge challenge to repeat as a winner. No driver has won two in a row since Helio Castroneves in 2001 and 2002, and while Rossi may not end that drought, every indication is that he will be in the mix at the very least.

Regarding Kushner, former FBI agent Jim Treacy said Friday: If there is an investigation on anybody, would other folks around that person be of interest to the FBI as far as being interviewed? The answer to that is a big yes. If the FBI wants to speak with someone, it's not necessarily an indication of involvement or complicity, said Treacy, who did two tours in Moscow as the FBI's legal attache. Really, being spoken to, does not confer a target status on the individual, he said. Investigators are also interested in a meeting Kushner had with the Russian banker, Sergey Gorkov, according to reports from The Post and NBC News. Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about these meetings, Gorelick said in a statement Thursday. He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry.

This most aggressive effort yet to push back against allegations involving Russia and his presidential campaign, will launch once Trump returns from his overseas trip. Upon Trump’s return, the administration will add experienced political professionals and possibly more lawyers to handle the Russia probe, which has gained new urgency since the Justice Department appointed a special counsel to head the investigation, the sources said. On Thursday, NBC News reported that Kushner, who held several meetings with Russian officials following the election, is himself a focus of the probe, making him the first current White House official to be caught up in it, although Kushner, who is Trump's son-in-law, has not been accused of any wrongdoing. On Friday afternoon, the AP quoted Kushner's lawyer that if the FBI wants to talk to Jared Kushner about his Russian contacts, he stands ready to talk to federal investigators as well as Congress about his contacts and his role in Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.

The FBI is looking into things. Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz, Mark Thompson, and Sue-Ann Robinson, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join "Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and one of his senior advisers, has come under FBI scrutiny in the Russia investigation, multiple U.S. officials told NBC News. Investigators believe Kushner has significant information relevant to their inquiry, officials said. That does not mean they suspect him of a crime or intend to charge him. The FBI's scrutiny of Kushner places the bureau's sprawling counterintelligence and criminal investigation not only on the doorstep of the White House, but the Trump family circle. The Washington Post first reported last week that a senior White House official close to Trump was a "person of interest," but did not name the person.

Corey Lewandowski, Trump's former campaign manager, is also expected to be part of the effort.

The transfer has seemed virtually inevitable for some time now, and Pilib de Brun of NBC Sports reported his sources are quite certain it will happen: Lengthy and highly public transfer sagas have become a regular thing in football, however. Just last year, Paul Pogba's return to Manchester was dragged out for months on end, and the transfer wasn't made official until August.
