With just days before voters cast their ballots and on the heels of potentially devastating news for the Clinton campaign, this week’s three-round Capitol Fight Club is all about elections.

Round 1:

John, Brian, and The Sams delve into whether or not FBI director James Comey was right to update Congress about the status of Hillary Clinton’s email investigation, setting off the 2016 election’s most recent firestorm. What kind of precedent will this set for the bureau and for future elections?


Round 2:

Tuesday’s election, like all elections, is about far more than who will occupy the Oval Office for the next four years. One of this cycle’s biggest nail biters has become whether or not Republicans will keep control of the Senate. Listen to what the guys say about the potential of the Senate changing hands and what that will mean for the future of the Supreme Court.

Round 3:

So you’re saying there’s a chance? In light of the FBI’s recent announcement about Hillary’s investigation, the polls seem to be tightening between her and Donald Trump. In the last Capitol Fight Club round before Election Day, the guys weigh in with their predictions about America’s next commander in chief.
