Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) is calling for a wrongful death lawsuit against Russian assets on Friday after a commercial airline crashed in Ukraine near the Russian border.

“I want to hear [during President Barack Obama’s speech today] that the Department of Justice will bring one hell of a wrongful death suit against Russian assets that are located in the United States to make sure there’s a significant cost paid by Russia for this action of shooting down an international airliner with a weapon system that is directly related to the Russian armed forces,” Kirk said on CNN.

Department of Justice?

Why involve the DOJ? Were any of "Holder's people" on board?

Has it occurred to this guy that this would mean the U.S. would be liable to be sued if, say, the Israeli army or anyone else uses U.S. weapons?

By the same standard, isn't DHS and it's entire chain of command to the White House liable for all crimes committed by illegal aliens?

There's no real effort by DHS to secure the border, enforce immigration laws, or deport the millions here.
