They're usually punished with suspensions and fines. Now it's reported that employees of the St. Louis Cardinals hacked into a network run by the Houston Astros -- and that could mean prison time under federal law.

Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.

Later on today’s show, now that he’s into his second term, comedian turned US Senator Al Franken is telling jokes again.
