Here are three leads to watch today which have the potential of being interesting. “Potential” is the key word.
- WikiLeaks release: At first, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said he had some damaging info on Hillary that he would release from the balcony of the Ecuadorean Embassy in London where he has lived for 5 years. Then the event was cancelled because WikiLeaks said they had received “specific information” about his safety which would have made it possibly dangerous for him to be in the open on a balcony. Now the event will happen via video link from Berlin. We don’t know what the alleged threat was. We will see how interesting (or not) this gets today.
- FBI destroyed Clinton aides computer: The FBI agreed to an immunity deal with Hillary Clinton aides Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson which included destroying the laptop computers the 2 highly placed Clinton confidants used while they served Secretary Clinton at the State Department. James Comey’s FBI has sure turned some heads in the way he has directed this entire investigation.
- VP Debate: Tonight’s debate is between a couple of smart politicians who know and understand policy. Some pundits say that means it’s likely to be boooring. America (those who choose to watch) will get a clear contrast between what politics used to be vs. how the game is played now. Don’t anticipate any “You’re no Jack Kennedy,” or “Can I call you Joe,” moments. We will recap it all Wednesday morning if you choose to do something else with your evening.
