2016 Race: Ryan pleas for civility, candidates wives take center stage, and Clinton’s emails


House Speaker Paul Ryan delivered a plea for civility in the 2016 race this week, but did not mention frontrunner Donald Trump by name, demonstrating the reservation by Republican leaders in Washington to directly take him on. Meanwhile, the war of words between Trump and Ted Cruz escalated again this week when the candidates wives took center stage. In the Democratic race, questions linger about Hillary Clinton’s State Department emails. Nancy Youssef reports on the U.S. military footprint in Iraq where 200 Marines have recently been deployed in the “war that was supposed to be over.” And former Bosnian leader Radovan Karadzic was convicted of war crimes this week.
