Controversy over Hillary Clinton's private email account while she was Secretary of State is not going away—despite her claim that she's been caught in a turf war between intelligence agencies. As the FBI continues its investigation, we look at the impact on her race for the White House.

Also, two journalists are shot and killed on live television. On today's Talking Point, a Jewish-American journalist has been allowed into Iran for the first time since the Islamic revolution in 1979. One Grand Ayatollah told him the idea of destroying Israel was ridiculous. We hear what else he heard.

E-Mail Gate: Is it Real or Politics as Usual? 33 MIN, 1 SEC

Hillary Clinton has joked about it, called it partisan and blamed it on turf wars between federal agencies, but questions about her use of private email as Secretary of State are not going away. Some intelligence officials say some messages should have been classified – two of them as Top Secret. The FBI is investigating a possible crime, and polls show serious damage to her credibility with the voters. Has Clinton’s damage-control effort backfired? Is the controversy creating an opening for Joe Biden to launch a campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination?

Jewish Journalist Finds a Surprising Iran 10 MIN, 16 SEC

Can citizens on the streets of Iran openly criticize their government?  How do they feel about the nuclear deal?  Do they agree that Israel should be destroyed?  We hear answers to those questions from the first Jewish -American reporter to visit Iran since 1979.

Larry Cohler Esses lived in Iran and taught English before the Islamic Revolution in 1979.  Now he’s become the first Jewish-American reporter allowed into the country since the Shah was overturned and replaced by the Ayatollah Khomeinei.  He was surprised by what he found. Cohler Esses is news editor at The Forward, a New York paper serving Jewish readers.
