New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is challenging the NCAA and other major professional sports leagues by calling on the Supreme Court to overturn a 1992 law that bars most states from taking sports bets. Christie and the state of New Jersey argue that the law violates the 10th amendment, but the sports leagues say an expansion of gambling would damage the integrity of their games. The case could legalize sports betting across the U.S., bringing in tax revenue, but it also spotlights the power of the federal government and states’ rights. What could a decision by the Supreme Court mean for future issues for states? Oral arguments are set to be heard on Monday. ABC News Legal Analyst Royal Oakes breaks it down with Tony.

Michael Flynn’s guilty plea had President Donald Trump on the attack this weekend as he took aim at the FBI and James Comey on Twitter. Trump tweeted he “never asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn” and in another tweet said the FBI’s “reputation is in Tatters - worst in History!” A tweet on Saturday raised questions about whether the president knew Flynn had committed a crime by lying to the FBI. His lawyer said he drafted the “sloppy” tweet, which said, “I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI.” On Monday, the president travels to Salt Lake City where he is expected to announce the reduction in size of two national monuments. ABC's Karen Travers is at the White House and joins Tony.
