Democratic lawmakers will read aloud the redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA), vice chair of the House Judiciary Committee, and nearly a dozen other lawmakers will read the 448-page report into the congressional record starting at noon in a Capitol hearing room.
The report shows numerous links between the Trump campaign and Russia before the 2016 election, but did not establish evidence of a criminal conspiracy.
Mueller’s report also examines multiple instances that appear to show President Donald Trump obstructed justice, and the special counsel seems to have asked Congress to decide whether the potential crimes merited impeachment.
Attorney General William Barr has refused to show an unredacted version of the report and its underlying evidence to congressional Democrats, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has declared “case closed” on Mueller’s investigation.
Confederate battle flag banned — Marine Corps declares it a ‘threat to our core values’

"Depictions of the Confederate battle flag are unauthorized in public and work spaces aboard an installation," the Marine Corps wrote in guidance to the troops.
The ban applies to bumper stickers, clothing and flags among other items.
"The Confederate battle flag has all too often been co-opted by violent extremist and racist groups whose divisive beliefs have no place in our Corps," the Marines explained.
"Our history as a nation, and events like the violence in Charlottesville in 2017, highlight the divisiveness the use of the Confederate battle flag has had on our society," the continued. "The presents a threat to our core values, unit cohesion, security, and good order and discipline."

Trump is ‘a soulless man with a broken mind’: George Conway calls out his wife’s boss in scathing op-ed
George Conway, the prominent Republican attorney married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, blasted his wife's boss in a new Washington Post op-ed published online on Friday evening.
"Until three brief months ago, President Trump never faced a serious crisis, at least one not of his own making. But now he has faced two, and is failing two, in short order: the covid-19 pandemic, with its concomitant economic devastation; and now social unrest, and rioting, stemming from the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody," Conway wrote. "Lacking in humanity, Trump has had no idea how to handle either one."
