Many donors to Clinton Foundation met with her at State

FILE - In this Aug. 16, 2016 file photo, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks in Philadelphia. More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money, either personally or through companies or groups, to the Clinton Foundation. It's an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president.

WHY IT MATTERS: Supreme Court

FILE - In this Feb. 13, 2016, file photo, people stand on the steps of the Supreme Court at sunset in Washington. The ideological direction of the Supreme Court is going to tip one way or the other after the election. The outcome could sway decisions on issues that profoundly affect everyday Americans: immigration, gun control, climate change and more. The court has been operating with eight justices since Antonin Scalia died in February. His successor appears unlikely to be confirmed until after the election, at the earliest. The court is split between four Democratic-appointed, liberal justices and four conservatives who were appointed by Republicans, although Justice Anthony Kennedy has sided with the liberals on abortion, same-sex marriage and affirmative action in the past two years. (AP Photo/Jon Elswick, file)WASHINGTON (AP) — THE ISSUE: No one likes an even number on a court that makes decisions by majority vote. Yet that's just what the Supreme Court has been left with, eight justices, since the death of Antonin Scalia in February.



Horrified by Trump, Democrats getting nostalgic about Romney

FILE -In this Nov. 4, 2012 file photo, then-Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney steps on stage to speak at a campaign event in Cleveland. When President Barack Obama ran for re-election, Democrats made no secret of their disdain for Mitt Romney. That was all before Donald Trump. Horrified by the prospect of Trump in the White House, Obama and his party have changed their tune about Romney. As they denounce Trump as “unhinged” and unfit, they’re getting nostalgic about the 2012 Republican nominee they now describe as principled, competent and honorable.

Trump's evolving immigration plan compared to Clinton, Obama

FILE - In this Aug. 22, 2106 file photo, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump meets with active and retired law enforcement in Akron, Ohio. If this week’s string of vague and contradictory statements by Trump and his team revealed anything, it’s that his immigration policy is still evolving. Just days ago Trump reshuffled his campaign staff just as he tries to recalibrate his message for the general election, in which his tough stance on immigration may be more of a liability than it was in the Republican primary. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump's new line on immigration — "fair, but firm" — is leaving both Republicans and Democrats with the same question: Is the famously hard-line GOP nominee softening his approach?
