Europe morning briefing: Here's what you need to know to start your day

has been extracted from Russia : that he saw Mr. Putin regularly and became “one of the C.I.A.’s most valuable assets.” Our reporters traced him to a house in Virginia, which he bought in 2018 for $925,000. The C.I.A. declined to comment, and The New York Times was not able to independently confirm that Mr. Smolenkov was the spy extracted by the United States. Pinch of salt: Russia wants to make it seem as if the C.I.A. invested in a low-level diplomat, but minimizing a rival’s recruits is as much a part of spycraft as inflating them.

While the government said that it intended to prepare lawmakers for a new legislative session, the court found that the maneuver “had the purpose of stymying Parliament” and freeing Mr. Johnson from parliamentary oversight as he pursued a no-deal Brexit. Reminder: The decision deepened the political morass for the prime minister, who has recently lost his working majority in Parliament, exiled veteran Conservative lawmakers and failed twice to secure an early election. Some legislators are demanding Mr. Johnson’s resignation if he lied to the queen over his reasons for closing Parliament, as well as vowing a sit-in to reopen it. What’s next: The decision has set up a showdown next week at the Supreme Court in London, which will either endorse the Scottish court’s decision or reject it and side instead with the High Court in London, which said last week that the suspension was not open to a legal challenge.

Bolton, walked out of his White House job, President Trump seemingly undermined his administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign on Iran by opening the door to before starting new nuclear negotiations. Reminder: Mr. Trump’s change in tone toward Iran comes amid escalating tensions between Tehran and the West, which were spurred by Mr. Trump’s decision to abandon the global nuclear pact last year, and have prompted tit-for-tat seizures of oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz.
