The first trial to come out of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia probe starts tomorrow in the Eastern District of Virginia. There will be a day or two of jury selection, and then the trial itself will get underway.

Covering the trial from a courtroom in which electronics are banned will present an interesting set of challenges for reporters, including our own. Tierney Sneed and Caitlin MacNeal have a plan that will involve a hotel room, a deli, a pay phone, and some all-out sprints. Caitlin explains it here (Prime access).
