2. Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, criticized the FBI decision, and Clinton. Trump said it was an example of a “rigged system.” (USA Today)

4. The three African American members of the Minnesota Legislature are facing primary challenges Aug. 9, from other black candidates who are complaining about the pace of chance under the incumbents. (MPR News)

5. The executive director of the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board is retiring. Gary Goldsmith plans to leave later this year, once a replacement is on the job. (MPR News)
