News Roundup: Mike Gravel dies at 91; William Barr wants redemption; Republicans defunding police

In the news today: Former U.S. senator and presidential candidate Mike Gravel, most known for his courage in exposing the Pentagon Papers that detailed the truth of the U.S. war in Vietnam, has died at 91.
