WH not ruling out bipartisan effort for health reform, Nunes clouding House intel committee investigation, Arena bringing relaxing atmosphere to US soccer team, and more headlines to start your day, Tuesday, March 28, 2017.

WASHINGTON Regrouping after a rocky few weeks, the White House declared Monday that President Donald Trump doesn't consider the health care battle to be over, suggesting he may turn to Democrats to help him overhaul the system after his own party rejected his proposal.

The sudden interest in bipartisanship is a shift for a president who has spent months mocking Democratic leaders as inept. And Democrats indicated they have no interest if his intent is still to dismantle "Obamacare."

But Trump's interest reflects the strained state of his relations with conservatives in his party and his search for a way to regain his footing after the painful withdrawal of his health care legislation last Friday.

"I don't think we've seen the end of health care," White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Monday, pointing to "a series of fits and starts" that marked the process that led to passage of President Barack Obama's health care law, too, in 2010.

NUNES' BEHAVIOR CLOUDS HOUSE INTEL INVESTIGATION

WASHINGTON House intelligence chairman Devin Nunes went to the White House grounds to review intelligence reports and meet the secret source behind his claim that communications involving Trump associates were caught up in "incidental" surveillance, the Republican congressman said Monday, prompting the top Democrat on the committee to call on Nunes to recuse himself from the committee's Russia probe.

Rep. Adam Schiff said Nunes' connections to the White House have raised insurmountable public doubts about whether the committee could credibly investigate the president's campaign associates.

"I believe the public cannot have the necessary confidence that matters involving the president's campaign or transition team can be objectively investigated or overseen by the chairman," Schiff said in a statement Monday.

ARENA RELAXES US AFTER KLINSMANN

PANAMA CITY Alejandro Bedoya missed a goal in training, and Bruce Arena wanted to make sure the midfielder knew he noticed.

"He threatened to chop my man bun off," Bedoya said, smiling. "That's the kind of grief I get around here."

Humor has returned to the U.S. national team since Arena replaced Jurgen Klinsmann as coach in November, following losses in the first two games in the final round of World Cup qualifying. In the first competitive match of Arena 2.0, the U.S. responded with a 6-0 rout of Honduras on Friday, and the Americans could even their record quickly with a win at Panama on Tuesday night.

OIL IN THE PIPELINE

BISMARCK, N.D. The Dakota Access pipeline developer said Monday that it has placed oil in the pipeline under a Missouri River reservoir in North Dakota and that it's preparing to put the pipeline into service.

Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners made the announcement in a brief court filing with an appeals court in Washington, D.C. The filing did not say when the company expected the pipeline would be carrying oil from North Dakota to a shipping point in Illinois.
