NEW: In statement and in interview, @GovChristie says he was "wrong" not to wear masks at White House, urges people to take the virus seriously and follow CDC guidelines in public…
“I believed when I entered the White House grounds, that I had entered a safe zone, due to the testing that I and many others underwent every day,” Christie said.…
He "was treated with a combination of blood thinners, the Ebola drug remdesivir and an experimental antibody cocktail produced by Eli Lilly."…
Mr. Christie said that even at the event for Ms. Barrett on Sept. 26, “I was put in the third row, and what they told us was that everybody in the first three rows had been tested that day and tested negative.”

NEW - An expert hired by the Trump campaign in its arbitration against Omarosa recommended that she pay for a $846k ad campaign to "remedy" impressions she's left in "voters'" minds…
The expert, Eric Rose, made the recommendation in a lengthy report filed last week. Campaign finance experts say if Omarosa did it it would be an illegal in-kind contribution…
Omarosa lawyer John Phillips: "This isn’t free speech. It’s speech with a gun to your head.”…

The president's advisers hope to show that he's beaten the virus and also that he understands it better than he did. First thing he did when he got to the White House was take his mask off.…
Amid polls that were already sinking after the debate but before Trump's diagnosis, Trump's aides hope he will get a sympathy bump and that he will be able to debate on Oct. 15. But the course of the virus with him is still unknown…
Some of the president’s allies are encouraging him to see getting better from the virus as in line with battles he’s faced - Mueller, with news coverage and with impeachment. The virus is not any of those things and is impacting millions around the globe.…

"Mr. Trump, who historically hates hospitals and anything related to illness, has been hankering to get released... and some aides expressed fear that he would pressure Dr. Conley into releasing him by claiming to feel better than he actually does."…
"The president has also been watching lots of television, even more than usual, and has been exasperated by coverage of Saturday’s calamitous handling of his medical information by Dr. Conley and Mr. Meadows..."…
"He was also angry that no one was on television defending him, as he often is when he cannot inject his own views into news media coverage, aides said. As a result, Rudolph W. Giuliani, his personal lawyer, was expected to appear on several TV shows..."…

Four pieces of information in that briefing: a) Trump's fever was "high" b) Trump's lung scans show "expected findings," unclear what that means but c) Trump is on a steroid the WHO recommends only for "severe and critical" COVID cases and d) Trump's oxygen lvls dropped again Sat
Conley says fever is gone now. He says president not on oxygen right now. The new information is important. Could they be reacting overly cautiously because he’s potus? Maybe but that steroid use in a 74 year old man w breathing probs is a flag and fever can be lowered w medicine
Also - this is a virus that bounces around in terms of good days and bad days till its conclusion, like other viruses, as Conley acknowledged. Unclear what factors they’re using for possible discharge.

Conley and rest of the team members are wearing masks for Walter Reed briefing.
"Since we spoke last, the president has continued to improve," Conley says. He says as with all illnesses, there are ups and downs over the course. He says the president experienced TWO drops in oxygen sats over course of his illness.
Conley no longer sounds like he's editing himself, as he did yesterday.
