Christian Post journalist Napp Nazworth left the company Monday over plans to publish a pro-President Trump editorial striking at Christianity Today for rebuking the administration, the Washington Post reports.

The big picture: An op-ed by Christianity Today editor-in-chief Mark Galli brought attention to a split among Evangelical Christians. The piece called for Trump's removal despite his continued Evangelical support, and argued that Christians can no longer make the trade-off of accepting an "immoral" president in order to protect pro-life policies.

  • Christianity Today President Timothy Dalrymple says the company has seen a net-positive gain in subscribers following the editorial.

What they're saying: Nazworth, an editorial editor, had written earlier this year that "Evangelicals who rationalize Donald Trump's misbehavior are sacrificing their moral authority at the altar of politics."

  • Nazworth says he is "shocked" to see the Christian Post take this path. He warned the publication that penning the piece would put them firmly on "team Trump."
  • The journalist says does not know what he will do next.

CDC updates guidance to say coronavirus can be spread through the air

The CDC updated its guidance on Friday to acknowledge that the coronavirus can be transmitted through the air at distances farther than six feet and through "droplets or small particles, such as those in aerosols" like coughs or sneezes.

Why it matters: The update — which was little noticed until a CNN story was published Sunday — comes months after scientists pushed for the agency to acknowledge the disease was transmissible through the air. The CDC previously said that close person-to-person contact was the bigger concern.

Top Mueller prosecutor: "We could have done more"

Andrew Weissmann, one of former special counsel Robert Mueller's top prosecutors, says in his new book, "Where Law Ends: Inside the Mueller Investigation," that the probe "could have done more" to take on President Trump, per The Atlantic.

Why it matters ... Weissmann argues that the investigation's report didn't go far enough in making a determination regarding Trump's potential obstruction of justice: "When there is insufficient proof of a crime, in volume one, we say it. But when there is sufficient proof, with obstruction, we don’t say it. Who is going to be fooled by that? It’s so obvious."

Trump's next moves in Supreme Court fight

President Trump's choices to succeed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg are down to two women, both federal appeals court judges.

The frontrunners are Amy Coney Barrett of Chicago, the early favorite, and Barbara Lagoa, who is viewed as easier to confirm. The Senate confirmed Lagoa 80-15 last year, so many Democrats have already voted for her.
