  • One Russian official claims he knows journalists are trying to sabotage the hotels to make the Olympics look bad. He may have opened a new can of worms, though, as he bolstered his argument by talking about watching the journalists in the rooms through surveillance cameras.
  • Journalist Glenn Greenwald says he's planning a possible visit to the United States to "force the issue" of whether the government thinks he's a criminal.
  • A Texas grand jury has declined to indict a man for shooting and killing a deputy who entered his home with a no-knock search warrant to look for drugs and guns.

  • Apple has removed Blockchain, an app that allows users to send and receive bitcoins, from its store.
  • The Senate seems unlikely to push forward another extension in unemployment benefits.
