Here's what we're following today.

President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen is back in prison after violating the terms of his COVID-19 furlough. Cohen was arrested Thursday after refusing to agree to a gag order as a condition of serving his criminal sentence under home confinement.

Two things are clear after the Supreme Court’s decisions on President Trump's financial records. Presidents do not have absolute immunity from having to release financial records, and more specifically to Trump, we likely won't see his taxes until after the presidential election. Plus, NPR’s Nina Totenberg reviews Chief Justice John Roberts’ momentous SCOTUS term in which he played perhaps the most influential role of any chief justice in nearly a century.

On Thursday, Florida and Texas set record daily high numbers of people who have died from COVID-19. In Arizona, health officials say the daily coronavirus count has doubled in the past two weeks, and the state’s governor is telling restaurants that they can still operate, but at half capacity.

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that about half of the land in Oklahoma is within a Native American reservation — a decision that will have major consequences for both past and future criminal and civil cases. The court's decision hinged on the question of whether the Creek reservation continued to exist after Oklahoma became a state. The ruling was applauded by tribes, but government officials say it could cause confusion in the legal system.

A 24-year-old Black man found hanging from a tree in a park in Southern California last month died by suicide, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's office said Thursday. The conclusion outraged Robert Fuller’s family, who insisted that he would not take his own life. The case spurred protests in the city of Palmdale as people called for an independent investigation by California's attorney general into what many believed was a lynching.

Ever since the pandemic struck, state and local election officials across the country have made one thing clear: to avoid an election disaster in November, they need more money to upgrade election equipment. Congressional Republicans are signaling a new willingness to provide funds, though it’s unclear how much they will agree to in the next coronavirus relief package. Experts believe that as many as 70% of all ballots in this year’s general election will be cast by mail.

The mayor of South Korea's capital, and a possible future presidential candidate, was found dead after disappearing Thursday morning. Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon's daughter told police he left a verbal message similar to a will, and later turned off his mobile phone. His body was found in a wooded park early Friday.

The National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Fay is more than 50 miles off the coast of Ocean City, Maryland, and will make landfall in the mid-Atlantic on Friday or early Saturday. Forecasters say the storm will bring damaging winds and between two and four inches of rain.

For a long time, there have been calls for a number of professional sports teams to change their names. The debate has burst into the mainstream in the wake of George Floyd’s killing and continued protests over racial injustice. The NFL's Washington Redskins and Major League Baseball's Cleveland Indians are conducting reviews of their names and logos, and other pro teams like the Atlanta Braves, Chicago Blackhawks and Kansas City Chiefs are now under the gun to follow suit.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is said to be one of several candidates under consideration as Joe Biden's presidential running mate. Bottoms was an early Biden supporter, and during the pandemic and protests, she caught the eye of many across the country. (Listen here or read the story)
