FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday that Hillary Clinton's decision to bring nine lawyers to her interview with investigators in early July was "unusual."For you rookies out there: you will not be able to bring nine lawyers to your "get together" with the FBI.
"It's unusual to have that large a number, but it's not unprecedented," Comey said during a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee.

Hillary Clinton has experienced a slight bump in Morning Consult's national tracking poll, the first major poll partially conducted after Monday night's presidential debate.Bump? Stay tuned.

In a four-way race including Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee, and Jill Stein, the Green Party nominee, Clinton garnered 41% support to Trump's 38%. Johnson received 8% support and Stein received 4%.
U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has come out against the ballot question that would lift the cap on charter schools, after taking heat for staying on the fence.Elizabeth Warren: fighter for the status quo. Some white chicks ,in politics, want to keep minorities on the public school plantation.
“Education is about creating opportunity for all our children, not about leaving many behind,” Warren said in a statement. “I hope that the Legislature, the teachers, and the parents can come together to find ways to make sure all kids in Massachusetts get a first-rate education without pitting groups against each other.”
Rosie O’Donnell called Donald Trump an “orange anus” in response to the GOP presidential candidate’s assertion during the debate Monday that she “deserves” to be insulted.Imagine that.
President Barack Obama is set to veto a Republican-passed bill that gives people an exemption from penalties if they purchase health insurance through Obamacare co-ops, but then lose their plan because the co-op failed.The Obama regime's cartellized health insurance scheme doesn't want captive consumers to stop paying for overpriced health insurance.
"These options are available to all consumers in these circumstances, not just those enrolled in coverage through co-ops," said the Office of Management and Budget on Tuesday, which issued a statement on the White House’s stance on the veto, and argued the measure was unnecessary.
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Adrian Smith (R-Nebraska) “would create a bad precedent for using exemptions from the individual-responsibility provision to address unrelated concerns about the Affordable Care Act,” the White House said.

No word yet on whether the state of Texas is secretly behind Prop. 55.

The world’s largest asset manager joined the chorus of investors warning that expensive U.S. Treasurys could pose a danger to portfolios as the Federal Reserve moves closer to a rate increase and the Bank of Japan ramps up efforts to steepen the yield curve.Just a reminder.
“It’s time to rethink the role of U.S. Treasurys in portfolios, and specifically to be cautious of long-duration Treasurys,” wrote Richard Turnill, global chief investment strategist at BlackRock, in a Monday note. “The risk-reward landscape for long-duration Treasurys is shifting.”
Duration measures the sensitivity of a bond’s price to changes in yield. As bond investors know, debt prices rise as yields fall and vice versa. Duration estimates just how much bond prices will change as the yield rises or falls. The longer the maturity, the longer the duration and the more sensitive a bond price is to changes in yield. That means that a small rise in yields can have an outsize impact on the value of long duration bonds in a portfolio.

Liberal columnist Neil Steinberg of The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
Donald Trump is going to be elected president of the United States on Nov. 8.Remember, this is Neil Steinberg who sees government as a benevolent institution.
At least I believe he will. I’m not the Delphic oracle. But that seems the direction we’re heading, and Monday night’s debate only reinforced my suspicion.
