Last week Hillary Clinton turned over her private email server to the FBI. The controversy that just won’t go away has increasingly worried Democratic supports and her team. On the other side of the aisle, there are charges that her handling of the emails deserves a criminal investigation, and that she hasn’t been forthcoming in answering questions during the investigation. Whether it’s a political witch hunt, as her supporters claim, or a serious breach of national security protocol, as claimed by others, it has certainly become a lingering albatross around her campaign.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump released details of his immigration policy on Sunday, saying in addition to building a wall to keep out immigrants, he would also end “birthright citizenship” for their children, toughen deportation, and allow in only “the good ones.” Native-born children of immigrants, even those here illegally, have been automatically considered American citizens since the adoption of the 14th amendment in 1868, so overturning that would be a steep chore. Nonetheless, Trump emphasized “they have to go,” and added that families with U.S. born children could return quickly if deemed worthy by the government. Trump pulls back from the campaign trail Monday, and heads to NYC’s Center Street courtroom complex, to take care of some jury duty responsibility in Manhattan.

The time when White House hopefuls begin descending on the Iowa State Fair to deliver soapbox speeches, devour calorie-busting culinary inventions and court voters in the Hawkeye State, which hosts the nation’s first presidential caucuses in February. While there’s no Iowa straw poll this year, the fair is a “contest” of sorts where candidates might have a breakthrough, or breakdown, moment while indulging in pork chop on a stick and fried butter. Josh Haskell is there and tells you what to look for over the 11 day affair – including Saturday’s highlight when Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will be at the fair at the same time.
