Two days before Election Day and the influx of news has not stopped.
In news this week, the FBI reopened their investigation into the Hillary Clinton email probe, the Redskins and Bengals find themselves playing in London for week 8, the Supreme Court looks into a transgender bathroom case in Virginia, polls are getting closer as Clinton only holds a two point lead with just nine days before the election and autopsy results show that Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez had more than just alcohol in his system following his death.

1. With only nine days to go until the election, FBI Director James Comey announced the bureau decided to reopen the investigation regarding Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. The emails are reportedly involving Anthony Wiener and his sexting with a minor scandal. “We are reviewing these emails to determine if they contain classified information,” Comey said in the letter to Congress. It will be interesting to see if this new information ends up harming her campaign.

This week, the aftermath of the second 2016 Presidential debate, political civil war sparks in the GOP, and Samsung halts production of their new phone.
Here is what’s new this week:
1) Aftermath of the second 2016 Presidential Debate
On Sunday night, October 9, 2016, the second 2016 Presidential Debate kicked off with a “shaky” start. At the beginning of the debate, the two candidates met in the center of the floor, but both refused to shake the other’s hand. It left a very bad atmosphere surrounding the debate for its one hour and one half duration.
This past week, the world’s most notable celebrity was the victim of an armed robbery, a little girl took to Twitter to show the world the hell she is living in and a ‘monster’ hurricane made landfall in the U.S.

Now that September has come to a close and October has officially begun we’re kicking it off this week with the long awaited Presidential Debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, breaking the record for most watched debate in U.S. history with 84 million people tuning in on Monday night, followed by a series of scandals later in the week involving Samsung’s exploding smartphones and washing machines to Wells Fargo’s dishonest employees and illegal backdoor dealings deliberately targeting U.S. servicemen and women in the military.

- The first presidential debate takes place.Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump faced off in the first of three presidential debates Monday night at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. The topics at the debate, moderated by NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, ranged from birtherism to Donald Trump’s refusal to release his income taxes to fact checking on both sides. Trump was on the defensive for the majority of the night, coming under fire from Clinton on his sexism and lack of experience in national security to his stance on policing and support of “stop and frisk.” Many zingers were used throughout the night on both sides as well, but no clear winner came out in the end as both held the stage during different points of the night, with Clinton coming out on top towards the end of the night and Trump coming out with a strong start towards the beginning of the night. The next two debates will be held on Tuesday, October 4 at Longwood University, Farmville VA and on Sunday, October 9, at Washington University in St. Louis, MO.

2. Houston police responded to a report of an active shooter at a shopping center.
It happened in an affluent neighborhood of Houston around 6:30 AM. The shooter was dressed in a vintage military coat adorned with a Nazi symbol toting a “Tommy Gun” and a handgun, opening fire on shoppers in their cars, injuring 9 in total before being shot dead by police. The man was a disgruntled lawyer from the Houston area, and according to interviews with his father was upset over the failure of his law firm, McDaniel & DeSai LLP, which closed down within the last year.
