This week, the city of Detroit is remembering a series of days that forever changed the iconic Motor City.

Fifty years ago, the city ignited into five days of rioting after Detroit police raided an illegal after-hours club.

He is also expected to meet Tuesday with the House Intelligence Committee. Both of the committees are conducting investigations into possible links between Trump associates and Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign.
