Every Monday-Thursday, The Evening Commute gives you “The Top 5 stories to break while your 9-5 was breaking you; set to 5 tunes that’ll help put you back together.”
Every Sunday, we compile the week that was in a series we call The Weak Ender.

***

While you were savoring the last pre-election weekend…

  • James Comey announced the FBI “have not changed our conclusion that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton” (meaning they didn’t find anything incriminating in the Anthony Weiner/Huma Abedin laptop emails).
  • the Bridgegate verdict came in, and both Chris Christie’s former deputy chief of staff and the former director of the Port Authority were found guilty on all charges.
  • Doctor Strange did really, really well at the box office.

Please make sure to vote (your conscience), if you haven’t done so already!
