Editor's note: The Washington Post reports that U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's charitable foundation has apparently admitted to the IRS that it violated a legal prohibition against "self-dealing," which bars nonprofit leaders from using their charity's money to help themselves, their businesses or their families. The Trump Foundation's 2015 IRS tax filings were posted online Monday evening at the nonprofit-tracking site Guidestar. A spokesman for Guidestar told the Post that the forms were uploaded by the foundation's law firm. The Post also notes it cannot confirm if the same forms were actually sent to the IRS. On the forms, the Trump Foundation checked "yes" to the questions of if the group had "transferred income or assets to a disqualified person" and the foundation had engaged in any acts of self-dealing in prior years. It is not clear who the "disqualified person" may be, and it is not clear if Trump, who is the charity's leader, has paid any penalties already. We're watching for comment from Trump's team. - Rebecca

Editor's note: We are waiting for more news organizations to project a winner in the presidential race in Pennsylvania, as the count has been very close. If Donald Trump wins the state, it would put him within six electoral votes of winning the election, The Washington Post reports. He would also be the first Republican to win Pennsylvania since 1988, when George H.W. Bush defeated Michael Dukakis, CBS News reports. - Stephanie
Editor's note: The Washington Post's 'Capital Weather Gang' writes that there is a 'large amount of uncertainty' about the path of Hurricane Matthew. 'It now appears likely that it will remain far enough east of Florida that only fringe effects and tropical storm conditions should be experienced along the peninsula on Thursday and Friday.' Farther out, the southeast US and mid-Atlantic states remain at risk. - Tom

The Washington Post is an American daily newspaper. It is the most widely circulated newspaper published in Washington, D.C., and was founded on December 6, 1877, making it the area's oldest extant newspaper.
Located in the capital city of the United States, the newspaper has a particular emphasis on national politics. Daily editions are printed for the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. The newspaper is published as a broadsheet, with photographs printed both in color and in black and white.
The newspaper has won 47 Pulitzer Prizes. This includes six separate Pulitzers awarded in 2008, the second-highest number ever awarded to a single newspaper in one year. Post journalists have also received 18 Nieman Fellowships and 368 White House News Photographers Association awards. In the early 1970s, in the best-known episode in newspaper's history, reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein led the American press' investigation into what became known as the Watergate scandal; reporting in the newspaper greatly contributed to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. In years since, its investigations have led to increased review of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
In 2013, longtime owners the Graham family sold the newspaper to Jeff Bezos for $250 million in cash. The newspaper is owned by Nash Holdings LLC, a holding company Bezos created for the acquisition.
