This edition of Groundhog Friday, an occasional wrap-up of recent repeats, includes claims from the presidential candidates about Libya, income inequality, nuclear weapons and more.
How do Hillary Clinton’s statements on her use of a personal email system while secretary of state stack up with the report by the State Department Office of Inspector General?
