In our news wrap Monday, Iraq's prime minister ordered his nation's army to leave a Baghdad neighborhood where dozens of protesters were killed or wounded this weekend. Also, a federal judge rejected President Trump's refusal to release his tax returns to prosecutors in New York. Then the president's lawyers immediately appealed, and a federal appeals court blocked their release for now.
