First lady Michelle Obama, former president Bill Clinton, and President  Barack Obama were the headliners who all adduced strong arguments for historic nominee, Hillary Clinton. Fairai Chideya of FiveThirtyEight and Michael Fletcher of ESPN’s The Undefeated join Tom to discuss the convention and Sec. Hillary Clinton's Thursday night address. 

 Then, Marilyn Mosby has discontinued the prosecution of the officers indicted in the arrest that led to the death of Freddie Gray.  Our legal eagles, Edward Smith and David Jaros help us understand the ramifications moving forward.
