READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
On a day which saw Dzhokhar Tsarnaev formally charged by the Justice Department, on Monday evening, "Piers Morgan Live" invited former Attorney General Mike Mukasey to the program to give his insight and perspective on the legalities of prosecuting an American citizen for terrorism on American soil.
"There shouldn't really be much of a debate," said Mukasey on the issue. "The statute that sets up the military commissions that we have now, makes it unlawful to try an American citizen in front of them."
In response to calls for the right to torture Tsarnaev for the purpose of extracting intelligence pertaining to homeland security Mukasey replied, "We don't torture. Torture is illegal under U.S. statute."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Mukasey tells Morgan, "There is nothing to stop the President from sending in a group of people, be they FBI agents or defense intelligence agency people or military people to interrogate him [Tsarnaev] in any fashion short of something illegal."
