Episodes of TwentySixteen are also available on iTunes and Stitcher.

This week Tim Alberta is joined by Scott Bland and Mike Mishak to discuss, among other things, Hillary Clinton's jokes about a federal investigation into her email server, Donald Trump forcing the GOP field rightward on immigration, and Jeb Bush using the term "anchor babies" when discussing the debate over birthright citizenship. The key question our reporters attempt to answer: Will the eventual nominees in both parties be haunted by this week's happenings come next November?
