With Election Day only one day away, I talked to Zerlina Maxwell, director of progressive media at Hillary for America, about the state of the race. Tom Bevan, co-founder and publisher of RealClearPolitics, and Yahoo News Political Consultant Brian Goldsmith joined me to explain the electoral map and the votes needed for a presidential victory. Dan Klaidman, Yahoo News Deputy Editor, discussed Hillary Clinton campaign’s response to the FBI’s decision not to bring criminal charges over new emails related to Clinton’s use of a private email server.
I was joined by Colin Quinn, writer and star of “Colin Quinn: The New York Story,” who told me about his new Netflix special and his pre-election perspectives on immigration and race relations.
I spoke with Michael McDonald, founder of the United States Elect Project, who said there are “record numbers of people voting early in a number of states.” I also talked to Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, who told me that her organization is keeping a close eye on voter intimidation tactics across the country before and on Election Day: She said, “This is an election cycle where there’s been a dark cloud of voter security measures.”
I spoke with Richard Painter — a University of Minnesota professor and former chief ethics lawyer in the George W. Bush administration — and Yahoo News Chief Investigative Correspondent Michael Isikoff about the latest information on the FBI’s stunning revelation that it is looking into a new batch of emails related to Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server.
I spoke with Washington Post political investigations reporter Rosalind Helderman about her article detailing a hacked memo released by WikiLeaks that appears to implicate former President Bill Clinton in a pay to play scenario.
I was joined by Republican pollster and political consultant Frank Luntz to talk about the latest developments in the final stretch of the 2016 presidential election campaigns.
I sat down with Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman, a columnist for the New York Times, to talk about the presidential campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and his take on the candidates’ plans for the economy.
