Google is no longer allowing Run For Something — a group that recruits and trains progressive candidates for office — to hold a political fundraiser at its D.C. campus on June 6. Google did not respond to requests for comment about why it changed its mind.

The big picture: It's not unusual for companies to allow outside groups to use their office space for events, and Google hosts more than 400 politically affiliated events each year, per a person familiar, including an event with the conservative website Newsmax and Commerce Sec. Wilbur Ross last October.

What they're saying: Run For Something had arranged to rent the space from Google and was not receiving any financial contributions from the company, per Lesley Lopez, chief communications and marketing officer for Run For Something. Their fundraiser had scheduled to feature Sens. Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren, and was set to be the group's first big event in D.C. this cycle.

Some Republicans joined Democrats in criticizing President Trump Saturday night for taking executive action on coronavirus aid, with Democratic leaders demanding the GOP return to negotiations after stimulus package talks broke down a day earlier.

Why it matters: Trump could face legal challenges on his ability to act without congressional approval, where the power lies on federal spending. Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) was the most vocal Republican critic, saying in a statement: "The pen-and-phone theory of executive lawmaking is unconstitutional slop."
