The Long-awaited Mueller Report Will Be Published


Tom Williams / CQ Roll Call

  • The long-awaited report on the more than two-year-old Trump of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller – The Investigations Against Russia eventually came out with editorships shortly after 11:00 published – and the results could do more harm to President Trump than expected. [NYT / Mark Mazzetti]
  • The report is divided into two volumes. The first part details the Russians' attempts to interfere in the presidential election and the contact they made with Trump's campaign. Although the investigation revealed that Trump was not to blame for direct cooperation with Russia, there is strong evidence of his readiness to engage with Russian intelligence services. [Vox / Zack Beauchamp]
  • The second volume of the report focuses on Trump's potential obstruction of justice, which includes consistent efforts to stop the investigation. Some of them failed only because his employees did not listen to his orders. [Politico / Josh Gerstein and Darren Samuelsohn]
  • The day began with a press conference by Attorney General Bill Barr in front of an audience of reporters who had not yet read the report. And the summary by Barr – which was pretty rosy for the president – turned out in some cases clearly from the version of Mueller. [Vox / Laura McGann]
  • Despite the bleak conclusions of the report, Trump's legal team has stated that it has been declared a "total victory" for the president. [Washington Post / Devlin Barrett and Matt Zapotosky]
  • The answers of the two parties have changed a lot. As Republicans want to once and for all refrain from investigating, the Democrats have expressed concern over Trump's behavior and have called for seeing a pristine version of the report and testifying to Mueller before the congress. [Vox / Tara Golshan]
  • Although the future impact of the report is not yet clear, it is clear that the issues raised in the report will not be forthcoming. For starters: Müller was asked to speak to the House Judiciary Committee on May 23. [NPR / Philip Ewing, Jerome Socolovsky, and Carrie Johnson]

North Korea wants "ruthless" Pompeo from the nuclear talks

  • . North Korea's officials do not want US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to be more involved in nuclear talks. A senior official said in a statement that if nuclear talks with the US were resumed, someone more "cautious and mature" would have to replace him. The announcement came hours after North Korea tested a tactical missile on Thursday to prove that the North is not weakened by negotiations with Washington. [Al Jazeera]
  • North Korean Foreign Minister Kwon Jong Gun said Pompeo had made a "reckless" interpretation of a speech by Kim Jong Un, in which Kim proposed that the two countries end "working-level negotiations" by the end of the year. Kwon called this interpretation "nonsense". [CNN / James Griffiths]
  • According to Kwon, Kim's speech last week said Washington has until the end of the year to change its attitude to sanctions and pressures. [Gulf Today]
  • Pompeo was instrumental in the negotiation of the US and North Korea. He was also the one who encouraged Trump to leave the last summit in Hanoi, Vietnam. Some North Korean experts see Pyongyang's attacks on Pompeo as a tactical mistake if the goal is to bring the US to the table. [CNA]

Miscellaneous

  • A five-armed robot called Daisy, whose job it is to systematically dismantle iPhones for recycling, is in a secret lab in Austin, Texas. [CNET / Ian Sherr]
  • Josh Bratchley, a diver who helped save the Thai football team from a cave, was himself rescued from a cave in Tennessee after being detained for more than 24 hours. [Tennessean / Mariah Timms and Natalie Neysa Alund]
  • Scientists have found evidence of helium hydride in a mist 3,000 light-years away. It is believed that the molecule, a combination of helium and hydrogen, is the first to form after the Big Bang. [Engadget / Christine Fisher]
  • China has built a simulated Mars Colony in the Gobi Desert called "Mars Base 1". It is currently used for educational purposes, but China hopes to eventually use it for tourism. [BGR / Mike Wehner]
  • Uber plans to add new security features that she thought was her crossing following the assassination of a South Carolina student whose body was found after she got into a car. [NBC News / Stephanie Gosk, Conor Ferguson, and Scott Stump]

Verbatim

"I'm afraid if Pompeo joins the talks again, the table will become miserable again and the talks will be involved." [ Kwon Jong Gun, a high-ranking official in North Korea's State Department, on the need to Replacing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Future Negotiations with the US ]
