The Democratic donor, billionaire and environmental activist has become a leading voice in the anti-Trump movement (his “Need to Impeach” campaign has earned millions of signatures) and now he's engaging every member of Congress.

Steyer bought 535 copies of Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” book to have hand-delivered to all the House reps and senators, per an interview he did with California’s KQED radio station.

What’s next: Steyer will be in D.C. on Monday making an announcement about his future political plans, which could be that he’s running for California governor or as a challenger to Sen. Dianne Feinstein for her U.S. Senate seat.

Editor's note: We updated to correct the spelling of Sen. Feinstein's name.

President Trump has not attended a White House coronavirus task force meeting in “several months,” NIAID director Anthony Fauci told MSNBC on Friday.

Why it matters: At the beginning of the pandemic, the task force, led by Vice President Mike Pence, met every day, but in the "last several weeks," members have held virtual meetings once a week, Fauci said, even as the number of new cases continues to surge in the country.
