Clinton’s trust problem, Benghazi Committee releases report

In a Chicago speech this week, Hillary Clinton acknowledged her low polling numbers for honesty and trustworthiness among voters, and she set her sights on earning that trust. The legislative branch continued to engage in bitter partisan battles, as a funding bill to fight the Zika virus stalled in the Senate and the House Benghazi Committee released the findings of its years-long investigation. Many considered the House committee to be a Republican-led attempt to tarnish Clinton’s Secretary of State reputation, but the final report discovered no bombshells regarding her culpability for the death of four Americans in September 2012. And as the Supreme Court finished their session this week, they overturned the corruption charges against former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, which could make it more difficult to prosecute corruption in the future.
