ADAM SHAPIRO: News On the Move-- Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny was admitted to the intensive care unit at a hospital after what appears to be a potentially lethal poisoning. Navalny is a harsh critic of Russian president Vladimir Putin. He has been in and out of jail in recent years for his activism against Russia's longtime ruler. The TASS news agency says his condition is grave. Many of Putin's opponents-- journalists, politicians-- they have died in violent or suspicious circumstances both at home and abroad.

JULIE HYMAN: Residents of Flint, Michigan are set to receive $600 million more than six years after a water system switch exposed them to abnormally high levels of lead. The agreement comes after 18 months of negotiations between representatives of the state and attorneys for thousands of flint residents which filed lawsuits. More details on the settlement are expected to be released tomorrow.

ADAM SHAPIRO: Blistering heat and several bolts of lightning are sparking more wildfires in California. The fast-moving fires or scorching parts of Northern California and threaten to destroy 25,000 houses and other buildings in their path. Travis Air Force Base has ordered the evacuation of all non-essential personnel because of the fires. And firefighters say about 11,000 lightning strikes-- that's an historic lightning siege, they said-- caused more than 367 new fires over the past few days.

JULIE HYMAN: Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon is expected to appear in federal court later today on charges he defrauded investors in a scheme to raise money for a not-for-profit. The complaint alleges that Bannon and his partners raised more than $25 million to build a wall along the southern US border and that Bannon received more than $1 million for his personal use. The White House has just issued a statement saying in part, quote, "President Trump has not been involved with Steve Bannon since the campaign and the early part of the administration. And he does not know the people involved with this project."
