Jared Kushner's legal team says the deadline Sens. Chuck Grassley and Dianne Feinstein gave earlier this month for turning over documents is no longer in place.

Quote from Kushner lawyer Abbe Lowell: "Mr. Kushner's counsel and staff from both the Majority and Minority spoke last week to go over the Committee's requests and a schedule for producing additional information. There is no current deadline as both the Committee and Mr. Kushner's counsel are working in good faith to produce whatever else may be responsive and relevant to the Committee's inquiry.

Lowell also sent the senators a letter earlier this month responding to the various requests:

Kushner's security clearance application: Lowell noted this will go through government channels, as they're government documents. Transcriptions of Kushner interviews before other congressional committees: Lowell said Kushner's team does not have transcripts, but the committees might. Other communications: Lowell disputed that there were any "missing documents," as alleged by the Grassley/Feinstein letter. Those include a Don Jr. email on WikiLeaks, communications with Sergei Millian (the head of the Russian American Chamber of Commerce), and an email exchange on a Kentucky NRA event during the campaign. Go deeper: Read the Grassley/Feinstein letter, and read the Kushner team response.

The Pac-12, which includes universities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, Utah and Washington state, will play football starting Nov. 6, reversing its earlier decision to postpone the season because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Why it matters: The conference's about-face follows a similar move by the Big Ten last week and comes as President Trump has publicly pressured sports to resume despite the ongoing pandemic. The Pac-12 will play a seven-game conference football season, according to ESPN.

Global coronavirus vaccine initiative launches without U.S. or China

Data: Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance; Map: Naema Ahmed/Axios

A global initiative to ensure equitable distribution of coronavirus vaccines now includes most of the world — but not the U.S., China or Russia.

Why it matters: Assuming one or more vaccines ultimately gain approval, there will be a period of months or even years in which supply lags far behind global demand. The COVAX initiative is an attempt to ensure doses go where they're most needed, rather than simply to countries that can produce or buy them at scale.
