Good Morning! One Of These Two Fine Upstanding Citizens and Role Models (NOT) is Our Next President

Jim Wilson/The New York Times
Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump have been in the public eye for decades. But journalists for The New York Times were still able to uncover much about the candidates, often altering the course of the campaign.
Here’s a look back at some of our best investigative work.
Clinton’s Email Saga Begins
You’ve undoubtedly heard about Mrs. Clinton’s email use. The scandal began with The Times’s exclusive report, which detailed the State Department’s acknowledgment that she set up a personal email account to conduct government business while she was secretary of state.
Republicans’ Desperate Mission to Stop Trump
It’s not too late to stop Mr. Trump, the Republican consultant Karl Rove told a despondent group of Republican governors and donors in February. But the last-minute efforts to derail his candidacy never materialized, thanks in part to a leadership vacuum and a paralyzing bout of indecision.
How Clinton Led the U.S. Into Libya
Mrs. Clinton’s push for military action in Libya might have persuaded President Obama to join allies in bombing Colonel Qaddafi’s forces, in what Mr. Obama’s defense secretary, Robert M. Gates, would later call a “51-49” decision. A detailed examination of arguably her moment of greatest influence as secretary of state offers a look at what kind of president she might be.
Trump’s Encounters With Women
Long before his lewd comments caught on tape became the campaign’s focus, dozens of women detailed their private encounters with Mr. Trump. They related stories of unwelcome romantic advances, unending commentary on the female form and unsettling workplace conduct.
Oh, There's lots more HERE.
