Lincoln Chafee’s Brief & Unspectacular Campaign, FBI Probes Benghazi

Lincoln Chafee ended his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, and The Atlantic’s Molly Ball discusses the short-lived campaign of Chafee, the “most pointless” candidate. Plus, Politico’s Josh Gerstein explains how if Hillary Clinton’s email scandal becomes an actual FBI criminal investigation it could quickly eclipse her Benghazi committee hearing. The Wall Street Journal’s Carol Lee discusses President Obama’s follow through on his warning to veto a $612 billion dollar defense policy signaling a continued struggle with Congress over federal spending and his ability to close Guantanamo Bay for good. While CNN’s Manu Raju explains the push by The White House to avoid a default on U.S. debt by enacting legislation to raise the debt ceiling in the wake of a fundamental group of Republicans who won’t vote for the debt ceiling increase no matter what’s on the bill.
