Obama's Justice Department has embraced “smart on crime” policies to reduce prison for non-violent offenders. But he's been miserly about using his pardoning powers.

Rand Paul, Eric Holder, and progressives agree: federal sentencing laws have created an enormous prison population, disproportionately made up of minorities and the poor. The momentum for reform is accelerating.

My new article:

+Ari Melber I assume this piece was written before this afternoon's hearing at the Senate Armed Services committee. I thought Sec. Kerry, in his opening remarks, did a good job of filling out some of the gaps you mention.

I was surprised you didn't seem to think that the broad and obvious use of chemical weapons against a civilian population was, in itself, sufficient to justify a stiff military response. Allowing chemical weapons to go "mainstream" is not something I'd personally like to see happen.

Lastly, re. Hezbollah and Iran, the former had no real capacity to enter a conflict with the US (other than through terrorism), and the latter has no intention to give the US the slightest excuse to attack its nuclear installations, so there'll be lots of huffing and puffing but that's about it (IMO, of course :-).

My new report:
Overflowing prison populations have led states to literally run out of jails. The result is an unusual problem with a controversial solution.

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara talks to me about his corruption cases in our new interview.
Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara says Governor Cuomo’s assertion that he cannot discuss ongoing corruption investigations is simply not true.

It's easy to say that both sides are to blame for bickering. But if "Washington is broken," as the saying goes, it's because Boehner and the Tea Party broke it.

With more rulings on the way, citizens will have more information to assess the court’s integrity themselves.
