Anger grows after two more fatal police shootings

Anger and protests are growing after two remarkable pieces of video showing the shooting deaths of two black men at the hands of police officers again shone a spotlight on the behavior and training of law enforcement.

The death of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisana is being investigated by the Department of Justice.

Later, a dramatic Facebook live video emerged, seemingly filmed by the girlfriend of a man in Minnesota who was allegedly shot by police following a traffic stop.

FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch will testify to Congress on Thursday about the process that led to a recommendation of no charges against Hillary Clinton in the email server investigation.

Donald Trump will also meet with – some – Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill today.

In another free-form campaign speech last night in Cincinnati – the New York Times called it “defiant and angry” – the presumptive nominee again didn’t focus on the FBI probe, but addressed things like his remarks on Saddam Hussein and the “star” controversy.
