    adding that the comment wasn’t intended as a criticism of Judaism

    Of course not. He was just saying that you need to be Christian to be President. Maybe you're Jewish, or Muslim, and that's fine, but they're all equally disqualified for the office. Jews are just as wrong as the others.

    The email investigation concerns me. Not that she will be indicted, I actually wouldn't mind Bernie stepping up. I'm more concerned about what happens if they don't indict her. Conservatives know the Benghazi investigation was a political witch hunt and look at their reaction to the GOP's latest report. The response has been a complete loss of control.

    What will happen when she walks away from the email scandal? Republicans have invested too much time and energy, even pinning all of their White House hopes, on this derailing Clinton. If they freak out this much over an investigation they know is bogus, how will they be able to handle the FBI passing on the emails? It's not going to be pretty.

    They really have no other choice than to vilify Hillary to the same extent as Obama. Republicans essentially shut down some parts of the US government as a response to his winning the election. I always thought it was silly that the GOP would have us believe that they would just flip the switch back on and start governing again once Obama left, so I figured they'd need some excuse to keep things broken. Enter Hillary. They will smear her more than any candidate in history, and if and when they lose they will use that to justify continuing their policy of non-governance. We might as well kiss the judicial branch goodbye.

    So things are basically going to be broken in government until the GOP starts to make an effort to expand their base. It might take years, and that really sucks.

    With the most powerful man in the world at the helm of the same political party, endorsing a candidate that is under FBI investigation, there's your reason right in front of you why nothing turned up.

    Nice. I was hoping you'd say something like that. Can't take it back now.

    From the Ambassador's sister on the tragedy:

    "I do not blame Hillary Clinton or Leon Panetta (for Stevens' death). They were balancing security efforts at embassies and missions around the world," Dr. Anne Stevens, who has acted as a spokesperson for the family, said in an interview with the New Yorker published Tuesday.

    "But what was the underlying cause? Perhaps if Congress had provided a budget to increase security for all missions around the world, then some of the requests for more security in Libya would have been granted. Certainly the State Department is underbudgeted," she said.

    Stevens also said that "it doesn't look like there's anything new" in the Benghazi reports released by House Republicans and Democrats earlier this week after two years spent investigating the 2012 attacks, and she expressed frustration with the politicization of the tragedy that killed her brother.

    "Yes! Definitely politicized," Stevens said. "Every report I read that mentions him specifically has a political bent, and accusatory bent."

    Wow, the GOP report has really triggered a lot of outrage in Republicans. I think their reality has been challenged and now they are lashing out at everyone.

    Republicans are pretty much losing it. Maybe they feel they are owed something for all the time and effort they spent whipping up hysteria. They really don't have anything to show for it and I can see why they feel shortchanged.

    But it really is time to move on. Seven investigations is enough. Send whatever comments or questions you have to the GOP and be their problem.

    Lizz: If anyone knows the answers to this, please let me know. I looked.

    Ah, well let's see if we can help you fact check the Congressional Report with information you pieced together on the internet. Can you run down the events of the night as told by your sources?

    Not a bad investment by the GOP. They got four years of dropping speculative headlines and now the bubble dwellers are so worked up they won't even accept a Republican report.

    So, time to move on? I think this one has been played out. Going forward any Benghazi statements will mostly be Republicans talking to other Republicans. I can't imagine too many moderates will take the GOP statements seriously anymore and that's the important thing.

    I thought Trump actually liked it when protesters at his rallies were roughed up?

    I didn't spend a lot of time studying this. I relied on the people I respect, like some of my friends, and people like Bill Maher, John Oliver, Jamelle Bouie. And now I can see the reaction.

    Someone else on JT summed it up when he said that some people are just losers. They decide they aren't happy so just blow up the system and take everyone else down with you. The same thing is happening with Trump supporters in America. They are angry and they feel like they are losing so what's to lose by electing Trump?

    If the Brits are smart they will find a way out of this. Don't destroy the younger generation.

    Well, actually, a lot of people have. I think endorsements are more of a problem for Trump.

    As long as we are a country awash in guns, we will have mass shootings. It's not rocket science. Sometimes little kids will get killed, terrorists will get them easily, and that's just the way it is.

    The end.

    Only about 9% of Trumps statements checked by politifact.com are rated as TRUE or MOSTLY TRUE. About 61% of the statements checked were marked as FALSE or PANTS ON FIRE.

    Clinton is at 51% TRUE or MOSTLY TRUE and 12% FALSE or PANTS ON FIRE, with the latter making up about 1%.

    I know Trump fans don't really care, but others might find it interesting.

    She was careless with her email system, and she deserves the criticism for it, and she deserves to be asked questions about it. By rational people.

    Tokyo-Engr: The tax code is over 8,200 pages. I have a U.S. corporation that went through an IRS tax audit

    Then you wouldn't be the kind of person to post a link that just shows static tax rates of countries around the world as if it means something.

    By the way, how do you feel about Israel?

    MarkG: Trump, prove he's a racist. His words meant nothing. What were his racist actions. After all a racist is a racist and can't hide that. Where's all the victims of Trumps racism?

    Ah, the mental gymnastics of the Trump supporter. Almost as awkward to watch as the mating dance between Trump and GOP congressmen.
