Former Trump associate Roger Stone filed Thursday a notice of appeal for his conviction on charges of obstruction of justice, lying to Congress and witness tampering as well as the denial of his motion for a new trial.

Why it matters: Stone was the seventh person to be convicted in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of the 2016 election, and his case has been closely watched by President Trump, who tweeted earlier Thursday that Stone faced "hatred & bias."

The big picture: Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison, though he has yet to serve any time behind bars.

  • He lied to Congress about his efforts to learn more about when WikiLeaks would publish damaging emails about Hillary Clinton in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election.
  • He told "Axios on HBO" earlier this year that he was still proud of his efforts to elect Trump, but stopped short of sharing any regrets on the matter due to a court gag order in place at the time.

Go deeper: Roger Stone found guilty on all counts

Trump floats delaying November election

President Trump suggested delaying November's election in a Thursday tweet, again claiming without evidence that mail-in voting will lead to widespread voter fraud.

The state of play: While this is the first time that Trump has actively floated changing Election Day, he does not have the power to do so. That lies exclusively with Congress, per a Washington Post breakdown of the issue.

Scoop: Biden plan expected to include at least $500B for climate

The White House is privately telling lawmakers the climate portion of President Biden's roughly $2 trillion social spending plan is "mostly settled" and will likely cost more than $500 billion, two sources familiar with the talks tell Axios.

Why it matters: A pricetag of $500-555 billion is a huge number and, if it holds, would likely be the single biggest component of the sweeping package. It also isn't far off from the roughly $600 billion proposed when the bill was expected to cost $3.5 trillion.

U.S. presses Gulf countries to help resolve Sudan coup crisis

The Biden administration has asked its partners in the Gulf and elsewhere to press the Sudanese generals who carried out a coup on Monday to release captives including Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok and to reinstate the civilian government, White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said in a press briefing on Tuesday.

Why it matters: The U.S. has limited influence over coup leader Gen. Abdul Fattah al-Burhan and other military leaders, many of whom have close ties to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
