President Trump plans to discuss his plans for healthcare soon. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany [[ MACK-en-ay-nee ]] said on Tuesday that "additional health care steps" would be outlined in the coming two weeks. McEnany said some parts of the plan have already been out there, including lowering drug costs and telemedicine.        President Trump is preparing to make an announcement of his nominee to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat. It's set to happen on Saturday at 5 p.m. Eastern. President Trump is determined to have the Senate vote on his nominee before the November election. Trump has said his nominee to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be a woman.        Intelligence officials are warning that Russian President Vladimir Putin is likely trying to interfere in the upcoming U.S. election. The Washington Post reports the CIA assessed that top Russian officials are behind efforts to disparage Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Their efforts are also meant to create discord and division ahead of the November election.        A killer has been executed by the federal government in Indiana. William Emmett LeCroy died by lethal injection Tuesday, 19 years after raping and murdering 30-year-old Joann Lee Tiesler in Georgia. The victim's father Tom noted "justice was finally served."       Microsoft is buying Zenimax, parent company of Bethesda Softworks, in a massive seven-point-five billion dollar deal. The video game company manages storied franchises like Doom, The Elder Scrolls and Fallout. The merger aims to boost Microsoft's Xbox business side.        Amazon's big shopping event is coming in the next few weeks. The Verge reports the retail giant will hold Prime Day on October 13th and 14th. Amazon had delayed the sales event because of the coronavirus pandemic, with it normally being held in July.
