    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by Partnership for Civil Justice Fund executive director Mara Verheyden-Hilliard and former CIA analyst turned political activist Ray McGovern to ask why Hillary Clinton will not face prosecution over her e-mail scandal.

    The FBI has announced yesterday that Clinton will not face charges despite saying she was extremely careless in hiding thousands of e-mails on her server, some of which were classified. Did the FBI essentially re-write the law to insure the presidential candidate would be let off the hook?

    China has kicked off military drills in the South China Sea the week before a court in the Hague is expected to rule on the territorial dispute with the Philippines. China’s week long drills started as a state newspaper warned against the U.S. intervening in the region. Becker is joined by journalist Don DeBar to explore if tensions are on the increase and what can be expected from the upcoming court ruling.

    Impeachment proceedings are going forward in Brazil despite the Senate’s own report clearing President Rousseff of the main charge against her. Brazil’s Senate is questioning President Dilma Rousseff’s representative as the coup government’s legitimacy continues to erode. Journalist Kim Ives talks with Becker about what's to come to Dilma, former President Lula da Silva, and the crumbling government of Michel Temer.
