Hilarious! Chris hayes is showing clips of the Saudis official band

Playing and butchering the US anthem. Even Trump was wtf ? . Now Putin comes visit and they attempt to play the Russian anthem with the same bad outcome. Putin did not look amused.

Source: NY times

Senator Bernie Sanders had a heart attack this week, his presidential campaign said on Friday as he left a Las Vegas hospital, following three days of near silence from the candidate and his advisers about his health.

Joe Biden just gave an incredible speech

He simultaneously defined what is America, the idea behind it and how Trump is the antithesis of all of that.
I dont think its hyperbolic to say this speech will go down in history. It was not just a mere campaign speech, it was a defining moment.

Why is the us border patrol in tactical gear at the el Paso shooting ?

I would expect police swat teams, ATF, FBI and the like but why is the border patrol involved ? Are they trying to arrest people while they are evacuating the mall ? I would not put it past them. They have done that at the exit of courthouses, schools, churches. Etc..

The shooting is tragic enough not to have these goons also terrorize poor people of Hispanic descent that are in the area.

Michael Moore totally lost it.

His solution to beat trump ? That's easy, let's ask Michelle Obama to run... l

wow. Joy Reid is saying Biden did fine

And his support amongst the African American community will remain strong.
Its surprising given how critical she has been of Biden in her past broadcasts.

Transcripts to Mueller hearing are here:

Why did Mueller say that going against the olc opinion would be unconstitutional?

I am not a lawyer so I dont understand the reason. I thought that the only body that could rule about the constitutionality of something is the supreme court ?

The department of justice policy about not indicting a sitting president is just the result of a legal analysis by a team of olc lawyers. It has not been tested in court ( as far as I know) .
I find it hard to believe that the executive branch can just draft opinions and declare that part of the constitution. What am I missing ?

Justice department letter to mueller

Trying to restrict what he can say even thought he is no longer an employee. Is it me or does it read like a threatening letter a lawyer for the mob would send ?

Particularly the ending : " i trust this information will be useful to you"...

Who would have standing to refer to the international court of human rights ?

I know the Trump administration will not do anything if their justice department headed by Barr gets lawsuits regarding the treatment of migrants at the border.
I am wondering if some entity would have standing to sue them in an international court of human rights ?

Having international arrest warrants issued for the people that are actively enabling these horrors ( head of cbp, local border patrol chiefs of these centers, etc.. ) may be effective.
