Hillary Skates (Post-Comey Presser Web Roundup)

Update: Jill Stein, Green Party standard-bearer, drops a pipe bomb.  The plot thickens.  A Clinton supporter explains what’s wrong with this decision.  A less than enthusiastic appraisal of Hillary’s problems by a liberal columnist in D.C.  Spic ‘n’ Span.  He said, she said.  Relevant.

Election 2016: Fault Lines
