What does the US’s disgusting history of war crimes teach us about international law? We look at the story of how the US screwed over Nicaragua and what the UN did about it. Also, we break down Gov.

Before that, some good news and very bad news in the efforts to hold Trump accountable for his uncountable crimes.
