Rundown for March 5, 2015
Tsarnaev’s Lawyer Admits “It Was Him”! The trial of accused Boston marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev began this week, and in her opening statement yesterday, defense attorney Judy Clarke stated that her client did in fact commit the crime. But, rather than just submitting a guilty plea and moving to the sentencing phase, the defense plans to present a case that shows Dzhokhar was “enlisted” by his older brother Tamerlan. Do you think this admission should result in skipping the trial and moving to the sentencing phase? Could the influence of his older brother change your opinion of what the sentence should be? Boston defense attorney Phil Tracy is in studio to give his thoughts on the trial. Call in and add your voice to the mix!
The White House Had No Idea! White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest admitted yesterday that the White House would have seen that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was using a private email account any time there was correspondence between the two. But nobody in President Obama’s administration noticed or cared enough to find out whether her private email address was the only one she used. Do you think this story will haunt her potential presidential campaign? Does the thought of a Secretary of State storing their own emails out of sight worry you? Call in and join the conversation!
