In other news, in a 7 to 2 decision, the Supreme Court has ruled that individuals can still be charged for the same crimes by both the federal government and state governments. Bad news for Paul Manafort and company.

Meanwhile, Iran says it will increase enrichment of uranium in the coming weeks if the European Union does not do more to provide relief from sanctions that were lifted (then reimposed by Trump) under the nuclear peace deal.

Finally, a man wearing body armor and carrying an assault rifle attacked a federal building in Dallas, Texas this morning. Witnesses say the man fired at least 15 to 20 shots.

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Officials in Dallas have identified the person who they say opened fire at the Earle Cabell Federal Building in downtown Dallas.

The FBI says Brian Isaack Clyde was killed after a gunfight with federal officials outside the building.

At a morning press conference FBI Dallas Special Agent in Charge Matthew DeSarno explained, “Shortly after the incident began this morning officers from the Federal Protective Service engaged the shooter who was later identified as Brian Isaack Clyde. He was taken to Baylor hospital and pronounced deceased on scene.”

It appears that no one except the shooter was killed.

      Let’s not jump to conclusions, this was a lone wolf, he was obviously mentally ill, it’s all the fault of the libruls! that everyone in the courthouse wasn’t armed to the teeth, have you no shame? it’s too soon to talk about this incident, stop trying to politicize a tragedy, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

      Expect the word salad to start any minute now.

      Oh, and my guess is yes, probably a lifetime member.
