From the Mueller report to the Affordable Care Act, it’s been a busy week in American politics. Here are some of the biggest stories you might have missed (and some links if you’d like to read further).
The investigation led by Robert S. Mueller III found that neither President Trump nor any of his aides conspired or coordinated with the Russian government’s 2016 election interference.
Mr. Mueller also reached no conclusion on the charge of obstruction of justice, writing that “while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.” So in a letter to Congress, Attorney General William P. Barr pronounced the president clear of committing any criminal offense. (Read Mr. Barr’s four-page summary of the report here.)
Democrats have become skeptical of the summary for a couple of reasons: They’re portraying Mr. Barr’s decision as a hasty, dubious intervention on behalf of the president who installed him and are wondering how a 300-page document could have been summarized in just four.
Mr. Barr told lawmakers on Friday that a redacted version of the report would be made public by mid-April. The White House will not see the document before he sends it to Congress, he said.

The conclusion by the special counsel all but assures that Mr. Trump’s political fate will be determined at the ballot box next year — intensifying pressure on 2020 Democratic candidates to start emphasizing the issues they want to bring into the campaign.
Some candidates unveiled their first major policy plans this week, hoping to give their campaigns and the primary a little more dimension. Senator Kamala Harris of California has decided to focus on increasing teacher pay. And Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota wants to upgrade the country’s infrastructure.
Health care remains poised to be a central issue in the 2020 campaign, but also a divisive one among Democrats. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, for example, strongly opposed legislation introduced by Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week to strengthen the Affordable Care Act, saying he preferred a bolder plan of “Medicare for all.”

Democrats won control of the House in large part on the strength of their argument that Congress needs to protect people with pre-existing medical conditions and to lower the cost of health care. On Tuesday, Democratic leaders announced a new legislative package that would build on the Affordable Care Act to do just that.
A day earlier, the Trump administration broadened its attack on the health care law, asking a federal appeals court to invalidate it entirely. The surprise decision gave Democrats a chance to move past impeachment and focus on health care and other kitchen-table issues.
Mr. Trump was sold on the idea of trying to nullify the law during a heated Oval Office meeting in which Mick Mulvaney, the acting chief of staff, prevailed over the vice president and the White House counsel. Many Republicans are worried that a health care fight could empower Democrats as it did in the midterm elections.

• The House will try to override the first veto of Mr. Trump’s presidency and rescue Congress’s bipartisan bid to block his national emergency declaration. Democrats are focusing on military projects threatened by a diversion of funds for border wall construction.
• Scientists at the Interior Department spent years examining the threat that pesticides present to hundreds of endangered species. That work was pushed aside after David Bernhardt, now Mr. Trump’s nominee to lead the department, intervened.
• The Senate blocked consideration of the Green New Deal after hours of discussion in which Republicans painted its Democratic supporters as out-of-touch socialists and fantasists.
• A divided Supreme Court returned to the subject of partisan gerrymandering, considering whether drawing election maps to help the party in power ever violates the Constitution. (Have questions about gerrymandering? We’ve got answers.)
• Mr. Trump reversed his administration’s decision to eliminate federal funding for the Special Olympics, blaming Education Secretary Betsy DeVos for the proposal. Ms. DeVos, who had defended the cut to lawmakers despite privately arguing against it, responded with a rare public display of pique.
