Hillary Clinton would not take an up-or-down position on Trade Promotion Authority when asked whether Congress should grant President Obama “fast-track” authorization for trade deals at a press conference here Monday. It was the former secretary of state’s first real news conference of her second presidential campaign. After weeks of criticism for avoiding reporters’ questions, Clinton fielded nine questions from reporters for about 20 minutes following her first big event in the Granite State after kicking off her full-fledged campaign over the weekend. She’s been saying plenty at campaign events the last few days, including three in New Hampshire Monday, where Brad fills you in on her main themes.

Well, while things are progressing nicely with alleged accomplice Joyce Mitchell… she’s been charged and arraigned, and it turns out she was allegedly not only going to drive the get-away car, but the escapees were going to off her husband allowing the three to then roam out into the sunset together… on the capturing the actual escapees front, not much at all has happened, despite more than 800 law enforcement officials in the hunt. At this point, authorities admit the pair could be almost anywhere, and if no breaks come soon, one wonders how long the state can invest the current amount of resources into the search.

6/16/15 Podcast Mary Bruce

The Obama Administration really isn’t sure of what to do at this point. House Democrats appear pretty set to derail the fast track trade authority, and used the worker assistance (TAA) provision of the bill to vote their displeasure. And there is no indication anything is going to change in that regard. So the administration must consider giving it another go anyway, or tearing up the Senate bill and starting from scratch. Whatever happens, talk within the Beltway is the battle between President Obama and his own party, not to mention what international trade opportunities might be lost because of the defeat of the bill itself.

6/15/15 Podcast Ryan Burrow

A lengthy report published Saturday revealed new details about the fatal shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice by a Cleveland police officer, but made no recommendation on whether the officer or his partner should face criminal charges. The county’s sheriff’s report also left some major questions unanswered. Perhaps foremost: Did Officer Tim Loehmann issue a warning before firing the fatal round? The police have said he did, but the new report suggested no witnesses heard any warning before shots were fired. In the coming weeks or months, a grand jury is expected to hear evidence in the case and decide whether to bring indictments against Officer Loehmann and his partner, Officer Frank Garmback.
