On Politics A.M.: Iran ‘Appears to Be Standing Down’

President Trump called for renewed diplomacy and backed away from further military conflict.

Good Thursday morning. Here are some of the stories making news in Washington and politics today.

  • The bristling confrontation of the past six days between the United States and Iran eased on Wednesday after an Iranian missile strike that seemed intended to save face rather than inflict casualties, with President Trump backing away from further military action and calling for renewed diplomacy.
  • Iran’s declaration that a missile attack on Iraq had “concluded proportionate measures” against the United States may amplify the Trump administration’s attention on computer systems as the next battlefield in its showdown with Tehran.
  • With an increasing number of Senate Democrats growing impatient to begin Mr. Trump’s impeachment trial, Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, insisted that Ms. Pelosi accept his terms for the trial and promptly deliver the charges from the House.

Today’s On Politics briefing was compiled by Isabella Grullón Paz in New York.
