Commander of the Wisconsin National Guard Maj. Gen. Donald Dunbar agreed to resign Monday in light of a new federal sexual assault review that showed significant missteps by the state's Guard, AP reports.

Catch up quick: The National Guard Bureau in Washington reports that the Wisconsin Guard conducted internal investigations in a manner against federal law, Department of Defense and bureau policy. Grievances included mismanaging case records and lacking adequate sexual assault response policies.

  • Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers called on Dunbar to resign Monday following the report's release. Dunbar was the nation's longest-serving state Guard commander.
  • Dunbar is set to step down on Dec. 31. Evers has appointed Brig. Gen. Gary Ebben as interim commander.

What to watch: Evers ordered the state Guard to enact all of the federal report's recommendations by September.

Robert Mueller speaks out on Roger Stone commutation

Former special counsel Robert Mueller responded to claims from President Trump and his allies that Roger Stone was a "victim" in the Justice Department's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, writing in a Washington Post op-ed published Saturday: "He remains a convicted felon, and rightly so."

Why it matters: The rare public comments by Mueller come on the heels of President Trump's move to commute the sentence of his longtime associate, who was sentenced in February to 40 months in prison for crimes stemming from the Russia investigation. The controversial decision brought an abrupt end to the possibility of Stone spending time behind bars.
