We're in something of a lull in the news cycle now, with primaries over and the convention a month away. The presumed nominees are working hard with their PR teams to decide where they want the narrative to take us next.

Several doctors, a psychiatrist and a pharmacist were among 22 people in Southern California charged as part of a nationwide investigation into federal healthcare fraud schemes that frequently targeted military families and cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, the U.S. Justice Department announced Wednesday.
