1. Trump Ordered Security Footage Deleted, DOJ Alleges In New Charges NPR 23:32

Donald Trump and two aides face new obstruction counts based on allegations that they instructed an unnamed, fourth worker to delete surveillance video footage at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence last summer “to prevent the footage from being provided to a federal grand jury.”

Trump also faces a new count of willful retention of National Defense Information related to his handling of classified documents, apparently in connection with a top-secret presentation Trump allegedly waved at aides at his Bedminster, N.J., resort.

Also: the federal government is likely to shutdown in October.
