This morning, Republicans in Congress grilled FBI Director James Comey about his decision not to prosecute presumed Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for her private emails sent while she was secretary of state.

Meanwhile, about 200 Republicans met with presumed Republican Party candidate Donald Trump on Capitol Hill, while some in close races declined.

Here & Now political analyst and GOP strategist Paris Dennard talks with host Jeremy Hobson about how Trump has hammered Clinton on the email issue, but Trump's off-the-cuff remarks continue to concern GOP leaders as the party heads into its nominating convention in two weeks.
