Special counsel Robert Mueller's team is expected to make its memo about former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort public, Mueller's spokesman Peter Carr told Yahoo News’ Michael Isikoff, despite speculation that Mueller might file the memo under seal to avoid publicly revealing the additional crimes Mueller's office believes Manafort is guilty of.

Why it matters: This will give the public rare insight into some of the findings Mueller has unearthed over the course of his Russia investigation, and could provide clarity into what else we can expect from his team when the probe eventually wraps. Meanwhile, memos about former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen are reportedly expected to be unveiled this week as well.

Protests over the death of George Floyd and other police-related killings of black people continued for a seventh day across the U.S., with President Trump threatening on Monday to deploy the military if the unrest continues.

The latest: Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser criticized federal police in a tweet Monday night for using munitions earlier in the day "on peaceful protestors in front of the White House, an act that will make the job of (DC Police Department) officers more difficult." "Shameful!" she added as she urged residents to go home and stay safe.
