We’re covering a rare statement from Robert Mueller, a look back on a deadly fire in London and a club in Georgia that offers refuge to the L.G.B.T. community.
The special counsel Robert Mueller characterized for the first time his investigation of President Trump, saying, “If we had enough confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”
He continued, “We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.”
He also said that while Justice Department policy prohibits charging a sitting president with a crime, the Constitution provides for another process to formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing — a clear reference to the ability of Congress to begin impeachment proceedings.
Analysis: Our correspondents wrote that the special counsel left many things unsaid. In a crucial respect, they said, Mr. Mueller remained as coy as he was in his report, leaving his intentions and conclusions open to interpretation.
The Chinese telecommunications giant filed a motion to expedite its lawsuit over the White House’s decision to limit access to its products for national security reasons.
Huawei filed its lawsuit in a federal court in March. Its request for a summary judgment could let the company avoid handing over sensitive information and give it a chance to present arguments publicly in just a few months, rather than waiting for the trial to unfold.
Huawei says the ban on its products is unconstitutional because it singles out the company for punishment without trial.
Impact: While Huawei is unlikely to reverse American opposition, it may hope to win over government officials in other countries, including some in Europe, who will probably be following the lawsuit closely.
Quotable: “The U.S. government has provided no evidence to show that Huawei is a security threat,” Song Liuping, the company’s chief legal officer, said at a news conference in Shenzhen, China. “There is no gun, no smoke. Only speculation.”
Factional squabbles scuttled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s efforts to form a government by today’s deadline.
As a result, Israelis will return to the ballot box in about three months. It’s the first time Israel has been forced to hold a new national election because of a failure to form a government after the previous election.
Mr. Netanyahu seemed to have an easy path back to power after elections last month. But a struggle between secular ultranationalist and ultra-Orthodox factions stymied his efforts to form a coalition.
In June 2017, a blaze at Grenfell Tower killed 72 people. It was Britain’s deadliest housing fire since World War II. The cheap material that covered the 24-story building turned it into a death trap, and Prime Minister Theresa May promised that “no stone will be left unturned” to ensure the disaster would never be repeated.
Nearly two years later, The Times has assessed the government’s response, which has left tens of thousands of people still at risk. The bottom line: Someone always pays for building on the cheap.
Go deeper: This article is part of a series in which we return to the scene of major news events to see if those in power kept their promises. In the first installment, The Times looked at why Colombian rebels are rearming despite a peace deal.If you have 15 minutes, this is worth itUnruly passengers
Some researchers are arguing that the stresses of flying — and they say income inequality is among them — contribute to an increase in unruly behavior on planes. In some cases, pilots even turn planes around, creating major delays.
British and European Union organizations are starting programs to minimize disruptions, many of which aim to curb drinking before or during flights.
Britain: Boris Johnson, the front-runner to replace Prime Minister Theresa May, has been ordered to appear in court over allegations that he lied to the public during the 2016 Brexit referendum. Separately, the speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, has vowed to remain in the post to see the country through Brexit, again asserting Parliament’s role in the process.
Hungary: A boat carrying South Korean tourists capsized and sank in the Danube River in Budapest just before midnight on Wednesday, leaving at least seven people dead and as many as 19 unaccounted for, officials said.
France: Johnny Hallyday, “The French Elvis,” died in 2017 but the battle over his will rages on. His adult children have used his old Instagram posts to help them claim an inheritance.
Spain: On Sunday, the Socialists consolidated their gains in Spanish local elections that coincided with those for the European Parliament, finishing first. The results have now left Pedro Sánchez, the prime minister, as the unlikely standard-bearer for a Socialist movement that has crumbled in countries like France, Italy and most recently Germany.
Denmark: The government has rejected the final asylum appeal by a 72-year-old Afghan woman with increasingly advanced dementia. Zarmena Waziri could be deported within weeks.
French Open: There are 23 Italian men in the top 250 of the ATP rankings, the most of any country. It comes after a yearslong deficit of male tennis talent from Italy.
Snapshot: Above, Bassiani, a techno club in Tbilisi, Georgia, where the L.G.B.T. community finds refuge. Georgia is a conservative society and tensions around L.G.B.T. visibility are running high as Tbilisi, its capital, prepares to hold its first Pride celebration in June.
Op-Ed from the Future: In the first installment of Opinion’s new series, the award-winning science fiction writer Ted Chiang imagines a gene-enhancement project that ends up widening the wealth gap.
What we’re reading: This deep dive into the Lakers organization from ESPN. Tom Jolly, who oversees production of our daily print edition, says it “reveals the team’s deeply flawed front office, including the two sides of a former star — the personable Magic Johnson and the much more difficult Earvin Johnson.”Now, a break from the news
Cook: Burrata, a creamy cheese similar to mozzarella, lifts this simple dinner of spaghetti with garlic-chile oil.
Watch: The Elton John biopic “Rocketman” is “fan service of an especially and characteristically generous kind,” our critic writes. It’s in theaters now.
Listen: In “Actually Virtual,” Flying Lotus pulls us down a dark path with cryptic prophesies and the allure of some lingering danger, our critic writes.
Read: Tony Horwitz, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who died on Monday, returns to our hardcover nonfiction best-seller list with “Spying on the South,” a biography of the journalist and landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted.
Smarter Living: Career success doesn’t always equal happiness. But at the same time, goals are necessary to our sense of progress and well-being. So what do you do when achieving something leaves you empty inside? A Harvard-trained positive psychology expert suggests laying out multiple concurrent goals in and out of your work life — and not sacrificing too much for any single one.
And if you have children, our Travel editors have some suggestions and advice for family travel from their own experiences.
Tomorrow we celebrate the 200th birthday of the American literary giant who sought to bring his rhythmic prose-poetry to the masses.
But before he was known as the “good gray poet,” Walt Whitman cut his teeth as an apprentice at a weekly newspaper, The Long Island Patriot, and he continued to work as a journalist for years after publishing the first edition of “Leaves of Grass.”
As editor of The Brooklyn Daily Times in 1857, Whitman reported on the citywide gang war between the Dead Rabbits and the Bowery Boys, and in editorials, he was a sharp critic of Mayor Fernando Wood.
When he lived in Washington during the Civil War, he wrote of the wounded in military hospitals for several New York papers, including The Times.
As his success grew, Whitman’s bylines turned into headlines. And in the months leading up to his death, his health was front-page news.
That’s it for this briefing. See you next time.
