Both Republicans and Democrats who have reviewed the same documents that led House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes to announce that the Obama administration may have surveilled Trump associates say the files contain no evidence of anything "unusual or illegal," according to CNN.

Who's saying this: Several members of the House and Senate intel committees have reviewed the docs. CNN sites "sources in both parties" as saying they contain nothing unusual.

Why it matters: Trump has accused Susan Rice, the former national security adviser who sought to "unmask" individuals caught up in surveillance, of breaking the law, and told the New York Times it was "one of the big stories of our time." Nunes' statements have also been used by some to support Trump's claim that Obama had him wiretapped. According to CNN's sources, Rice's activities were "normal" and the documents don't support Nunes' claims.

Why it matters: Delayed election results are expected across many states that are handling unprecedented amounts of absentee and mailed ballots, which President Trump has baselessly called "very dangerous" and "corrupt."

Why it matters: NASA is aiming to send people back to the Moon as part of its Artemis program by 2024, with plans to eventually create a sustainable presence on the lunar surface. That sustainability relies on mining the moon for its resources, like water.

Vice President Mike Pence no longer plans to attend the Senate's final confirmation vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett, a Pence aide confirmed to CNN and Politico on Monday. On Sunday, Senate Democrats claimed that his presence after possible exposure to the coronavirus would be a "violation of common decency."

Driving the news: Five of Pence's aides were recently diagnosed with COVID-19, including his chief of staff, who is currently quarantining. Pence has continued his campaign travel despite his possible exposure, which goes against CDC guidelines.
