5 Stories You'll Care About in Politics This Week

What the ABC News political team is tracking in the week ahead.

Oh, and there was another guy who wore a white hat down to the Texas border. Then there’s the candidate whose emails are so interesting the Department of Justice may read them next.

Here’s a glimpse at some of the stories the ABC News political team will be tracking in the week ahead:

She's Got Mail

A new House Benghazi committee meeting Wednesday and a fresh e-mail document dump toward the end of the week will keep the story-line alive, along with the willing participation of her rivals in the Democratic and Republican fields in furthering a saga that’s damaged Clinton’s political standing.

Trumped Up

Donald Trump is the most dangerous man in politics right now. He’s loud, outspoken, unbound by typical rules of human interaction, and is a billionaire. He’s also, per the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, the GOP frontrunner.

Black Lives Matter

The movement for criminal justice reform and against police brutality has become a touchstone in presidential politics. Interestingly, Democrats are taking the brunt of the early heat from African-Americans involved in the campaign for reform.

“Yes, black lives matter,” Hillary Clinton declared. This movement remains an unpredictable force in the emerging campaign, touching on the always-complicated politics of race and still-gelling bipartisan efforts around legal reform.

Oh That Joe

Biden associates say his mind has been far from politics since his son, Beau, died under tragic circumstances. That’s not the same as saying Biden won’t run, though. A “Draft Biden” movement continues to collect signatures, while the vice president himself remains silent on the subject. “End of the summer” is his self-imposed deadline.

While few think he’ll actually do it, he may just be looking for the right moment that suggests that Clinton might be vulnerable.
