Will the controversies regarding Hillary’s emails and lines between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department cost her the election? Has Donald Trump’s behavior and inflammatory rhetoric sabotaged his presidential bid? What effect if any, will WikiLeaks and hackers have on the outcome of the election? And just who is influencing the 2016 election? For answers to these and other questions, please join us as we continue a conversation started during last May’s Social Sciences Expert Speaker series event.
