John Bolton, Tornadoes, Abortion: Your Wednesday Briefing
by Chris Stanford

"We’re covering an apparent divide between President Trump and his national security adviser, a rare string of tornadoes, and the unusual things that New Yorkers take on the subway."


Robert Mueller, the special counsel, today characterized for the first time his investigation of whether President Trump obstructed justice, saying “if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”

A disconnect on foreign policy
President Trump split from his national security adviser, John Bolton, during their Japan trip that ended on Tuesday, saying that, unlike Mr. Bolton, he was not seeking regime change in Iran. Mr. Trump also contradicted Mr. Bolton by asserting that recent North Korean missile tests had not violated United Nations resolutions.

Background: Mr. Trump chose Mr. Bolton, known for his hawkish foreign policy views, last year as his third national security adviser. Mr. Bolton has learned to brief Mr. Trump effectively, but the two have never bonded on a personal level, according to administration officials.

Related: Mr. Bolton left Japan for the United Arab Emirates, where today he blamed Iran for reported attacks on oil tankers.

WASHINGTON — President Trump has rolled back environmental regulations, pulled the United States out of the Paris climate accord, brushed aside dire predictions about the effects of climate change, and turned the term “global warming” into a punch line rather than a prognosis.

And, in what could be Mr. Trump’s most consequential action yet, his administration will seek to undermine the very science on which climate change policy rests.
