From the Russia probe to the national emergency, 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).
On Tuesday, The Times published an examination of President Trump’s actions that found the president had actively tried to undermine multiple investigations surrounding his administration. His efforts have exposed him to accusations of obstruction of justice as Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, wraps up his probe.
In the coming weeks, Mr. Mueller is expected to deliver his final account of a nearly two-year investigation into Russia’s election interference to William Barr, the new attorney general. Mr. Barr will then have to decide how much of the report to make public.
The rules governing the special counsel give Mr. Barr considerable flexibility in deciding how much information from the report he provides to Congress and the public. Democratic lawmakers want to ensure that every detail is shared.

Mr. Trump mounted one of the most severe executive-branch challenges to congressional authority in decades last week with his declaration of a national emergency at the border. The move left Senate Republicans sharply divided, and it remains to be seen whether they will act collectively to try to stop it.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi began her push to overturn the emergency declaration on Friday, scheduling a House vote for Tuesday — a remarkably short timeline — on legislation that would end it.
But Mr. Trump’s plan to build his border wall involves more than his invocation of emergency powers to redirect military construction funds. He plans to tap into .5 billion in other Pentagon funds, too.

As more candidates join the presidential race, those running are already outlining what issues and policies will shape the primary.
Senator Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent and 2016 Democratic primary runner-up whose populist agenda has helped push the party to the left, announced on Tuesday that he was running again. In just over 24 hours, he raised million from more than 225,000 donors, showing that he still has strong support.
Health care is becoming the first real issue of the primary race. On one side, Mr. Sanders promises a single-payer revolution. On the other, candidates like Senators Amy Klobuchar and Sherrod Brown are calling for incremental change.
In recent weeks, some Democratic candidates, including Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, have embraced race-conscious proposals that even the most left-wing elected officials once shied away from — like reparations for slavery.

• Officials in North Carolina ordered a new election for the House race in the Ninth Congressional District after Mark Harris, the Republican whose apparent win is under investigation for voter fraud, called for a new vote himself. Republicans, who often rail against the specter of voter fraud, have mostly stayed silent about the case.
• Democrats’ far-reaching proposal for a Green New Deal is technologically possible, experts say. But it would cost trillions of dollars and could not be accomplished within the 10-year time frame that supporters say is necessary.
• Wealthy investors are seeking tax breaks by plowing money into so-called opportunity zone funds. The funds are a creation of the 2017 tax law that provides incentives for spending on projects in poor areas.
• The Federal Reserve released minutes of its January meeting, which showed that officials had expressed confidence in the economy but saw enough warning signs to warrant a pause in rate increases.
• As a March deadline to reach a trade deal approaches, American negotiators are struggling with how to ensure that China, which has reneged on past promises, follows through on any agreement.
• Mr. Trump, speaking in Miami on Monday, said the Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro’s days were numbered. His remarks were seen by some as a bid to win over what may be a crucial bloc of Florida voters in 2020.
• After two years of aggressively overhauling education policy, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos must now answer to Democratic lawmakers with whom she has clashed.
