The White House physician released a memo on Wednesday summarizing data from President Trump's latest physical exam, conducted between November 2019 and April 2020 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and the White House.

The big picture: The White House physician found in Trump's third physical since taking office that there have been no significant changes and that the president continues to be in healthy condition.

Worth noting: The memo confirms that Trump was prescribed and took hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure for the coronavirus last month.

  • The memo details that Trump took a "two week course" of the drug following positive COVID-19 tests by two West Wing staffers. The physician states that "this was done in consultation with [Trump's] appropriate care team members and close monitoring of the electrocardiogram."
  • The president continues to be tested regularly for the coronavirus.

Read the memo.

A three-judge federal court in New York on Thursday blocked the Trump administration's push to exclude undocumented immigrants from influencing congressional apportionment as determined by the 2020 Census.

Why it matters: Removing unauthorized immigrants from the census this year would cause California, Texas and Florida to lose at least one House seat they otherwise would have been awarded based on respective population increases, the Pew Research Center found this summer.

DOJ: Russians hacked federal prosecutors

The Russian hackers behind the massive SolarWinds cyber-espionage campaign broke into the email accounts of some of the most prominent federal prosecutors' offices around the country last year, the Justice Department announced.

State of play: DOJ said 80% of Microsoft email accounts used by employees in the four U.S. attorney offices in New York were breached.

Biden's quick-trigger COVID problem

The Biden administration's handling of the Delta surge has left Americans confused and frustrated, fueling media overreaction and political manipulation.

Why it matters: The past year and a half have left Americans cynical about the government's COVID response, and — in many cases — misinformed or uninformed. We're getting fog and reversals when steady, clear-eyed, factual information is needed more than ever.
