We’re covering the release of Robert Mueller’s report, North Korea’s claim that it has tested a new weapon, and the growing number of abortion bans in the U.S.
The Justice Department released a redacted version of the report by the special counsel, Robert Mueller. It has been posted on the department’s website, but load times are very slow, presumably due to high traffic.
Here are our live updates on the findings, with excerpts and analysis, and our live coverage of the events of the day. We’re also planning to send a special edition of the Morning Briefing email later today.
Attorney General William Barr held a news conference before the report’s release, vigorously defending President Trump’s conduct and clearing him of obstruction and him, his campaign and associates of any knowing collusion.
Here is a transcript of his remarks. We’ll have video shortly.
Response: Mr. Trump’s Twitter account displayed a “Game of Thrones”-themed post that declared in uppercase: “No Collusion. No Obstruction. For the haters and the Radical Left Democrats — Game Over.”
Another angle: Justice Department officials have repeatedly discussed the report’s conclusions with White House lawyers, our reporters were told, aiding the president’s legal team as it prepares a rebuttal.
In what appeared to be a warning from Kim Jong-un to President Trump, North Korea said today that it had test-fired a new type of “tactical guided weapon.” There was no evidence that the test involved a nuclear detonation or an intercontinental ballistic missile.
Analysts said the test shows that Mr. Kim is reverting to sabre-rattling as he moves to end the sanctions that are derailing his hopes of rejuvenating North Korea’s economy.
What’s next: Mr. Kim said recently that he would give the U.S. until the end of the year to come up with proposals that would lift sanctions, an implicit warning that North Korea might resume nuclear and intercontinental missile testing. Today’s test suggested that he might raise the stakes sooner.
Donations from wealthy French families and companies to rebuild the fire-ravaged cathedral in Paris are nearing billion, intensifying the resentment that has been on display during the Yellow Vest protests about economic inequality.
“If they’re able to give dozens of millions to rebuild Notre Dame, they should stop telling us that there is no money to pay for social inequalities,” one labor union leader said.
Another angle: The Paris Fire Department’s chaplain, the Rev. Jean-Marc Fournier, has emerged as a central figure in the mission to rescue artworks and relics from the blaze. He told our reporter how more than 100 firefighters carried the precious pieces to safety.
Yesterday: A man carrying two cans of gasoline, two bottles of lighter fluid and two lighters was arrested after entering St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York, the police said. The church was undamaged.
So-called heartbeat bills — a ban on abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, often before a woman even knows she is pregnant — have been on the fringes of the anti-abortion movement for years. But four states have passed such measures this year, and heartbeat bills are moving through the legislatures of 11 others, according to one policy expert.
With an increasingly conservative Supreme Court under President Trump, anti-abortion activists hope to overturn Roe v. Wade, the decision that established a federal protection for abortion in 1973.
Quotable: “Now is our time,” said Michael Gonidakis, the president of Ohio Right to Life in Columbus. “This is the best court we’ve had in my lifetime, in my parents’ lifetime.”
The Daily: Today’s episode is the second of a two-part series on abortion. Listen to Part 1 here.If you have 18 minutes, this is worth itCalmly running the most chaotic place on the internet
During Susan Wojcicki’s tenure as chief executive of YouTube, she has had to contend with uploads of pedophilia and mass murder. Yet she has largely escaped the public scrutiny that her peers on other platforms have faced.
To get a sense of what she is like as a leader, our reporter spoke to more than a dozen current and former employees, and Ms. Wojcicki herself.
Tighter rules on Cuba: The Trump administration has imposed new restrictions on dealing with the island, including limiting nonfamily travel and allowing exiles to sue for property seized by the Castro government.
New tent cities for immigrants: With existing facilities “beyond capacity,” the federal government will spend nearly million to house detained migrant families and children in Texas.
“Infatuated” with Columbine: An 18-year-old woman who officials said was armed and had traveled to Denver before the 20th anniversary of the shooting was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Ex-leader of Peru kills himself: A former president, Alan García, shot himself as the authorities were trying to arrest him in connection with one of the biggest corruption scandals in Latin American history.
Pinterest I.P.O.: The digital pin board company has priced its shares at each for today’s initial public offering, a valuation of .7 billion.
Green buildings, or else: New York City is expected to pass a law to fine buildings that violate new caps on greenhouse gas emissions.
Snapshot: Scientists were able to restore some function, above right, to brains from slaughtered pigs, in a study that raises profound questions about the line between life and death.
Late-night comedy: Several of the hosts were eager to see Robert Mueller’s report. Jimmy Kimmel said, “Political analysts are going to try to read through these redactions like teenage boys trying to watch scrambled porn on cable in 1985.”
What we’re reading: This piece from The Bulwark. “It’s a compelling counterpoint to the idea that being gay and running for president isn’t a big deal in 2019,” says Jeremy Peters, our national political reporter. “Tim Miller’s reaction to Pete Buttigieg kissing his husband onstage at a rally is a reminder that this is still very new.”Now, a break from the news
Cook: Use leftovers to make salmon fried rice.
Watch: Roxann Dawson’s faith-based film, “Breakthrough,” tells the story of a miraculous ordeal with an unassuming simplicity, our critic writes.
Read: The Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Robert Caro shares insights into his craft in “Working,” which is new this week on our hardcover nonfiction and combined print and e-book nonfiction best-seller lists. You can find all our lists here.
Go: The moment Adam Driver steps onstage in “Burn This” is the most “impressively violent Broadway entrance” in 30 years, our theater critic writes.
Smarter Living: The summer blockbuster season is near. Before you sign up for a movie subscription service like MoviePass, Sinemia or AMC’s A-List, check which works at the theaters you go to most often. Be sure to read the terms and conditions, since services have caps on the number of films you can see, or limits on the number of showings you can attend.
And we have recommendations on affordable, reusable stand-ins for single-use plastic straws, spoons and containers.
Thailand’s king is Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun. That’s not his entire name, but that’s all we use in The Times.
The leader of the Future Forward Party, which shocked the Thai military establishment in last month’s elections by coming third in the popular vote, is Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit.
Family names — a 20th-century innovation in Thailand — are constructed to be distinct, and that often means extra syllables.
If foreigners find Thai names to be a mouthful, so, apparently, do Thais, who use nicknames in everyday life. Many people are called Lek (Thai for small), Nok (bird) and Poo (crab and, please, it’s pronounced more like “boo”).
This writer’s younger son has played soccer against an Ice, a Python and a Bar Code. A girl in our building is called DTAC, which is the name of a cellphone operator.
But nothing compares with the full name for Bangkok. It starts with Krungthep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayuthaya and continues for more than 40 syllables.
That’s it for this briefing. See you next time.
