Longtime Trump associate Roger Stone was ordered by a federal judge on Friday to report to prison on July 14, the Washington Post reports.

Why it matters: Stone was sentenced in February to 4o months in prison for crimes that include obstruction of justice, lying to Congress and witness tampering.

  • Stone was the seventh person to be convicted and sentenced for crimes unearthed by former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Catch up quick: Friday's decision by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman gives Stone a two-week extension due to the coronavirus pandemic — but does not delay his sentencing by two months, as he had previously requested.

  • The Justice Department's policy for the pandemic has been to grant delays of up to 60 days for defendants “without respect to age, health, or other COVID-19 risk factors," per the Post.

Barr's time in the barrel

Attorney General Bill Barr finally testified Tuesday before the raucous House Judiciary Committee, where grandstanding and bomb-throwing tactics by lawmakers have become a staple of oversight hearings in the Trump era.

Why it matters: Less than 100 days out from the election, Democrats on the committee have little recourse for changing the behavior of an official they've accused of embodying the president's most corrupt impulses.

The death toll from Tuesday's explosion in Beirut, Lebanon has now surpassed 130, including at least one U.S. citizen, amid a search for answers as to why a huge store of ammonium nitrate was left unsecured near the city's port for nearly seven years.

What we know: The government says around 5,000 people are injured. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said current indications are that the massive explosion was accidental, despite President Trump's puzzling claim on Tuesday evening that it appeared to be a bomb attack.
