Russian spies indicted in Yahoo hack 6 MIN, 32 SEC

For the first time, the US Justice Department is charging Russian officials with cybercrimes. Two agents of the FSB — which succeeded the KGB — are among four foreigners accused of hacking Yahoo in 2014, stealing 500 million user accounts.

Shane Harris, senior national security correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, says the charges send a message to Russia that we know what it's doing.

The Sounds of populism from Holland to Iowa 35 MIN, 56 SEC

The Netherlands is a small country, but it's central to Europe, and today's parliamentary election is both a reflection of the recent past and a possible key to the future. Right-wing candidate Geert Wilders is running on the slogan "Make the Netherlands Ours Again." That's music to the ears of Brits who voted for Brexit, French who are listening to Marine Le Pen and, of course, to American supporters of President Trump. Western democracies are showing variations and different degrees of nationalism and populism, as well as religious- and racial- discrimination. Is it partly the failure of liberal elites to address the economic and social consequences of free trade and immigration?

In this country, fuel economy standards are 25 miles per gallon. Before leaving office, President Obama set a new standard of 36 miles per gallon by 2025 to cut carbon emissions. Today, President Trump is making good on his promise to roll that back. Don Anair, deputy director for research at the Union of Concerned Scientists' clean-vehicles program, says the move provides great uncertainty for auto manufacturers, suppliers and the various states that adhere to California’s strict emission standards.
