Wednesday’s blow-up between President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was dramatic on its own, but it was all the more strange because the two sides had just taken a significant step toward cooperation hours before they opened fire on each other.

Just minutes before Mrs. Pelosi accused Mr. Trump of a “cover-up,” his Justice Department and her intelligence committee chairman reached a deal to share more of special counsel Robert Mueller’s work with lawmakers.

Chairman Adam Schiff said Attorney General William P. Barr has agreed to provide material from a dozen different aspects of Mr. Mueller’s investigation. In exchange, Mr. Schiff said he would not pursue contempt or some other punishment right now.
