Christy McDonald of Detroit Public Television shares a look at a close race in Michigan, where Democratic candidate Dana Nessel is running against Republican candidate Tom Leonard.

WATCH: Barr says his letter on Mueller report 'speaks for itself'

U.S. Attorney General William Barr reaffirmed in a House subcommittee hearing that his letter sent to Congress about special counsel Robert Mueller’s report “was meant to state the bottom-line conclusions of the report, not summarize the report.” Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ga., asked Barr whether a member of Congress has “the power to arbitrarily decide what portions of the special counsel’s report they might release, redacted or not?” Barr said: “Not if it violates the law.”

Why Letitia James Wants to Take on Trump as NY's Attorney General | Op-Ed | NowThis

Letitia James wants to be the attorney general that helps take down Donald Trump.
» Subscribe to NowThis: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe

Letitia James wants to be the attorney general who helps take down Donald Trump.

“America is in uncharted territory. We are angrier and more deeply divided than we’ve ever been at any point in our history since the Civil War. And at the eye of the storm is Donald Trump, ripping families apart, threatening women’s most basic rights,” she stated. “I’m running for attorney general because I will never be afraid to challenge this illegitimate president when our fundamental rights are at stake.”

James says we need to reform our criminal justice system, and that we should not criminalize mental illness or poverty. She also believes Democrats need to stand for freedom and the Constitution, “at a time when Congress, particularly Republicans, do not have a backbone,” against Trump.

“I believe that this president is incompetent. I believe that this president is ill-equipped to serve in the highest office of this land. And I believe that he is an embarrassment to all we stand for,” she said. “He should be charged with obstructing justice. I believe that the president of these United States can be indicted for criminal offenses and we would join with law enforcement and other attorneys general across the nation in removing this president from office.”
