The Washington Post will publish a special edition op-ed page on Thursday that will feature a column filed by Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi before his disappearance.

The Post held off publishing it because we hoped Jamal would come back to us so that he and I could edit it together. Now I have to accept: That is not going to happen.
— Editor's note accompanying the column

The details: The announcement from the Post comes on the heels of President Trump requesting audio and video relating to Khashoggi's disappearance. The column focuses on the need for a free press in the Middle East. The paper will also publish a new piece from the Editorial Board printed on the opposite page.

The Supreme Court on Monday denied a request from Pennsylvania's Republican Party to shorten the deadlines for mail-in ballots in the state. Thanks to the court's 4-4 deadlock, ballots can be counted for several days after Election Day.

Why it matters: It's a major win for Democrats that could decide the fate of thousands of ballots in a crucial swing state that President Trump won in 2016. The court's decision may signal how it would deal with similar election-related litigation in other states.
