This week on Race to the White House, Brendon O’Connor, Tom Switzer and Anthony Dockrill discuss how the re-emergence of the email scandal has come to hurt Hillary Clinton in the final week of the campaign.

Has Clinton’s love of secrecy not only created this problem but also reinforced a perception among many voters that she can’t be trusted?

Also on the agenda: what a possible Clinton presidency may look like both domestically and abroad.
