|3 THINGS THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD TODAY|
Good morning, here’s your Monday morning briefing. Look out for these three things happening around the world today.
Deadline for unredacted Mueller report
Today is the deadline for the US Department of Justice to turn over an unredacted copy of the Mueller report, which investigated Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted the findings of his investigation to Attorney General William Barr in March 2019. A month later Barr published a redacted version that showed insufficient evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia but did not exonerate Trump of obstruction of justice.
Barr is accused of misleading the public with his redacted version and following a lawsuit filed by Jason Leopold of BuzzFeed News and the Electronic Privacy Information Center under the Freedom of Information Act, a judge ordered that the Department of Justice make the full version of the report public.
Report highlights latest space threats
The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) today publishes its annual report on offensive and defensive space capabilities around the world.
The 2019 Space Threat Assessment focused on the four specific countries that the CSIS deemed to pose the greatest risk for the US: China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea.
In December 2019 the US formally established the United States Space Force as the sixth branch of the Armed Forces to protect its interests in space.
