(CNN) – "The Interview" is coming to theaters.
Sony reversed its decision Tuesday, announcing that it is excited to release the comedy about taking out North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. This comes after the studio became the victim of a hack attack that unleashed a trail of embarrassing Hollywood gossip.
(CNN) – Eric Garner's daughter wants justice, she wants to see the officer who held her father in a chokehold punished. And she does not want him to simply lose his job, or be suspended.
"I would want him to face time in jail," Erica Garner said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."
(CNN) – Rep. Charles Rangel's life and career defies the notion that black lives don't matter.
Yet that does not stop young black men from expressing the fear that their lives are worth less in this country.
"My son was a Marine. How do you tell him not to speak out, to be submissive if you think you're being chased by a cop? Don't run, be quiet? This goes against all of the instinct that people try to teach their sons to be an example of – to be courteous and honest and all those different things," Rangel said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."
(CNN) – Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani says police officers should have immediately cracked down on violent protesters in Ferguson.
"They made a terrible mistake in backing off. The first person who throws a stone, the first person who breaks a window, who lights a fire should get arrested. There should be a clear delineation," Giuliani said in an interview with CNN"s "The Lead with Jake Tapper."
The ex-mayor also said well-organized "racial arsonists" incited much of Monday night's violence, and had planned riots days ago.
(CNN) – President Obama is expected to take executive action on immigration Thursday. While Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, says the House will review Obama's policy, he is already slamming the President's move as unconstitutional.
"I'm confident that it's going to be unconstitutional and the reason I say that is because the President would have acted by now if he'd had executive way to do what he wants to do," King said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."
Asked if Republicans would be willing to shut down the government over this issue, King deflected, saying House Republicans could hold back funding for Obama's action on immigration.
"We're prepared to cut off any funding that would implement or enforce his unconstitutional act, presuming that stipulation is unconstitutional," King said.
The Iowa Republican listed more serious reactions, including an act of censure against Obama, and even impeaching the President.
"We have constitutional authority to do a string of things. That would be the very last option, but I would not rule it out," King said.
