Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who died last week at age 99, lied in repose at the court's building in Washington on Monday, prompting visits from the current justices, more than 80 of his former clerks, and President Trump and first lady Melania Trump.

Details: Stevens was the 3rd-longest-serving member of the Supreme Court before his 2010 retirement. He will be buried in Arlington National Cemetery in a private ceremony.

The U.S. and Israel will announce tomorrow that they are expanding three agreements on scientific cooperation to include Israeli settlements in the West Bank, Israeli and U.S. officials tell me.

Why it matters: This is a substantial policy shift for the U.S., which did not previously allow its taxpayers' money to be spent in the Israeli settlements.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) expressed no regrets about Judge Amy Coney Barrett's controversial confirmation, telling Politico in an interview that he believes the decision to place her on the Supreme Court just a week before the election will help Republicans retain the Senate.

Why it matters: With a week to go until Election Day, many Republicans are concerned that President Trump's unpopularity could cost them the Senate. McConnell has long viewed the transformation of the federal judiciary through the confirmation of young conservative judges as his defining legacy.
