A prosecutor who quit the criminal case of President Donald Trump‘s ally Roger Stone in protest is set to tell Congress on Wednesday that the “highest levels” of the Department of Justice had pressured officials “to cut Stone a break.”

Aaron Zelinsky, one of four prosecutors who withdrew from the case after the department stepped in to lower Stone’s recommended prison sentence, will testify before the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee in a hearing on politicization of the DOJ under Attorney General William Barr.

The panel’s 12 p.m. ET hearing comes as Barr has faced heavy criticism for his handling of high-profile cases involving matters directly related to Trump. Critics have accused Barr of undermining the independence of the Justice Department by acting in ways that benefit the president politically.

A copy of his opening statement shows Zelinsky is set to tell the panel that he personally saw the department “exerting significant pressure” on prosecutors “to water down and in some cases outright distort” the events of

Good morning. David Meyer here in Berlin, filling in for Alan.

Could Americans be banned from entering the European Union when it opens its borders to most of the world next week? That’s a distinct possibility, according to plans being discussed today among EU ambassadors.

When the EU’s external borders open July 1, the idea is that people will only be allowed to enter from countries that have an infection rate below the EU average. According to Politico, only 50 countries or so would qualify under that condition, including China. The U.S. and Brazil, for example, would not.

The EU average is around 16 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The current U.S. figure is 107, while Brazil has 190 cases per 100,000, according to the New York Times, which also says the diplomats will issue their recommendation early next week.

Now, it’s important to remember that the U.S. has also closed its borders to European visitors since March—when the EU rather than the U.S. was the virus’s main playground—and has made no firm commitment to letting them back in …

Good morning. Asia and Europe are mostly lower as the global coronavirus case load continues to spike, particularly in parts of Asia and the Americas. U.S. futures have swung decidedly lower, too. That’s despite encouraging economic data and renewed talk of a new round of stimulus goodies.

Let’s check in on the action.

Markets update

Asia

  • The Asia indexes are mixed in afternoon trade. Hong Kong and Tokyo were down slightly; Shanghai was up.
  • Tokyo has reported its highest number of new coronavirus cases since May 5. The problem is “clusters in workplaces,” officials say.
  • Bad reception. Apple’s China iPhone sales fell in May, after a strong rebound in April, suggesting the retail picture in the vital market is still choppy.

Europe

  • The European bourses sank in early trade. Germany’s Dax was off 2%, erasing yesterday’s gains.
  • The E.U. is set to selectively reopen its external borders on July 1. So far, the U.S. does not make the list of approved visitors, according to the New York Times, as it’s failing
