SCOTUS rejects hearing strict North Carolina voter ID law 6 MIN, 4 SEC

Voting rights advocates enjoyed a big victory at the Supreme Court today… at least for the moment. The Court declined to take up the ruling of a lower court that North Carolina's voter ID law is unconstitutional. David Graham, a staff writer at the Atlantic based in North Carolina, says the denial leaves states waiting to see what the Supreme Court will and won't allow.

What's next for the FBI… and the GOP? 34 MIN, 33 SEC

President Trump says he might appoint a new FBI Director before his first overseas trip starts on Friday. Potential nominees were interviewed over the weekend — including at least two Republicans serving in the House and the Senate. But the President's own explanation of why he fired James Comey has been called "obstruction of justice." Some conservatives are outraged at the Republicans who dominate Congress, but aren't exercising the separation of powers by considering impeachment. Trump might stem the controversy by his choice of a new FBI leader — but Democrats still want an independent investigation of Russia's campaign hacking.

The ransomware outbreak continues 8 MIN, 50 SEC

The so-called “ransomware outbreak” continues.

Starting last Friday, Windows computers subject to the latest "ransomware outbreak" displayed an ominous message. It said, "Your important files are encrypted... nobody can recover [them] without our decryption service… and you need to pay." Timothy B. Lee, who writes for Vox, says particularly vulnerable are older institutions running older versions of Windows as well as smaller organizations that don’t have the IT capabilities to keep their software updated.
