    Over 100 White House officials reportedly lack permanent security clearances.

  • Nikolas Cruz, the suspect in yesterday's school shooting in Parkland, Florida, has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.
  • "The portrait of Nikolas Cruz, suspected of fatally shooting 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and wounding 15 others at his former school, is a troubled teen with few friends and an obsessive interest in weapons. Administrators considered him enough of a potential threat that one teacher said a warning was emailed last year against allowing him on the campus with a backpack."
  • South African President Jacob Zuma has resigned.
  • Tom Ashbrook, the host of the National Public Radio show On Point, has been fired over allegations of workplace abuse.
