👋 Whoa! WTF is this?

Current Status is the consensus view of the current top U.S. political stories from a cross-section of the news media ecosystem.


There are three components that determine the Current Status: First, there is an editorially-responsible algorithm that considers the signals news editors send about a story's news value. Second, there's a human-in-the-loop curating the list and providing oversight to ensure that the Current Status is a fair and accurate representation of the day's essential political stories. And third, Current Status is biased toward recent, highly-cited stories, with an emphasis on depth and accuracy. The stars are a reflection of a story's current relative news value.

This is what the political web is talking about right now.

Today in one sentence: Attorney General William Barr concluded that Robert Mueller's investigation found no evidence that the Trump campaign "conspired or coordinated" with Russia; Trump declared that Mueller's report was "a complete and total exoneration" despite Mueller saying the report "does not exonerate him"; Mueller told the Justice Department three weeks ago that he wouldn't reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice; Trump said it "wouldn't bother me at all" for Mueller's report to be released in full; and Mitch McConnell blocked a non-binding resolution to make Mueller's full report public.

    The Trump administration opened a new assault on Americans' health care yesterday by telling a federal appeals court that the entire law should be struck down. It's a sickening attack on people with pre-existing conditions, seniors, and young people. https://t.co/crIK0aIsvP

    Protecting pre-existing conditions is not a partisan issue. That’s why one of our first acts in Congress was passing my bipartisan bill that protects Americans’ health care in federal court. Let's stop the sabotage and work together to lower costs. https://t.co/qe91jexdYE

    Anonymous officials told reporters Trump was reversing another set of unannounced sanctions, not the ones Treasury had rolled out the previous day. It turns out they were lying, and they must've known it. Why not revoke the anonymity to unmask the liars? https://t.co/eMWmUs8LYe

    In the wake of Trump’s tweet, the administration sought to explain away the move with a statement that said the sanctions against the Chinese companies hadn’t been reversed but the U.S. wouldn’t pursue additional sanctions against North Korea https://t.co/99iRMxhK2w

    There were no additional NK sanctions in the works at the time, according to two people familiar with the matter. The people asked not to be identified in order describe last week’s events and the administration’s attempt to provide a cover story https://t.co/9LaJKRfuOA
