NPR’s Domenico Montanaro joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson to discuss a variety of issues including Trump’s campaign strategy, a new report out today about the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Hillary Clinton’s upcoming choice of a running mate, and Bernie Sanders' silence when it comes to officially endorsing Clinton.
