House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) sent a joint request to the Department of Justice on March 27 requesting that special counsel Robert Mueller brief their committee and provide "all materials, regardless of form and classification, obtained or produced" during his 2-year investigation.

Why it matters: The joint letter, obtained first by The Daily Beast and sent just 3 days after Attorney General Bill Barr released his "principal conclusions" of Mueller's findings, marks a rare show of unity from the top 2 officials on the House Intelligence Committee. Nunes has previously dismissed the Mueller report as a "partisan document" that he is no interest in reading, while Schiff has been extremely vocal in his demands for Barr to release the full report and the underlying evidence.

The White House is finalizing a series of executive orders addressing key coronavirus stimulus priorities if negotiations with Congress fall apart, and it's leaving the door open for President Trump to use them even if a deal is reached that doesn't encompass all of his priorities, two administration officials tell Axios.

What we’re hearing: “I wouldn't be surprised that, if something gets left off the table, we’d be like ‘we can take this executive action too and be able to win on it anyway,’” one official said.

TikTok said Friday that it was "shocked" by President Trump's executive order that will ban Americans from dealing with ByteDance, its China-based owner, in 45 days.

Why it matters: TikTok argued that Trump's move "risks undermining global businesses' trust in the United States' commitment to the rule of law, which has served as a magnet for investment and spurred decades of American economic growth."
