  1. Obama Sends U.S. Attorney General to Missouri

    Attorney General Eric Holder will travel to Missouri on Wednesday to supervise the investigation of the shooting of Michael Brown by a local police officer. President Obama said Holder will also assess whether Gov. Jay Nixon’s decision to send National Guardsmen to reinforce local police was “helping or hindering.” In Ferguson, gunshots of unknown origin were fired and, in response, the police used tear gas to clear a key street of protesters and reporters, arresting anyone who remained.
