The FBI updated House Republicans on Friday night about the records that have been provided so far in response to subpoenas on issues related to the Clinton email investigation, FISA orders on Trump campaign associates, and the Russia investigation, CNN reports.

The details: The FBI says it has "substantially complied" with two requests, but CNN reports that "several issues remain outstanding." One of those is a request from the House Intelligence Committee related to the Clinton Foundation, which the FBI says it needs to "further engage with the Committee to better understand."

  • House Speaker Paul Ryan's spokesperson AshLee Strong told CNN: ""Our efforts have resulted in the committees finally getting access to information that was sought months ago, but some important requests remain to be completed. Additional time has been requested for the outstanding items, and based on our understanding of the process we believe that request is reasonable."

Go deeper: This matter has consumed the committees for months and garnered the ire of President Trump.

The apocalypse scenario

Democratic lawyers are preparing to challenge any effort by President Trump to swap electors chosen by voters with electors selected by Republican-controlled legislatures. One state of particular concern: Pennsylvania, where the GOP controls the state house.

Why it matters: Trump's refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power, together with a widely circulated article in The Atlantic about how bad the worst-case scenarios could get, is drawing new attention to the brutal fights that could jeopardize a final outcome.

A federal judge ruled late Thursday that the Trump administration could not end the 2020 census a month early.

Why it matters: The decision states that an early end — on Sept. 30, instead of Oct. 31 — would likely produce inaccuracies and thus impact political representation and government funding around the country.

Schools in Southern and Midwestern states are most at risk of coronavirus transmission, according to an analysis by Coders Against COVID that uses risk indicators developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The big picture: Thankfully, schools have not yet become coronavirus hotspots, the Washington Post reported this week, and rates of infection are lower than in the surrounding communities. But that doesn't mean schools are in the clear, especially heading into winter.
