Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testifies before the House Select Committee on Benghazi October 22, 2015 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.

An 800-page report issued by the House Select Committee has no smoking gun regarding Clinton and Benghazi. So why are people so split on its implication?

No new evidence of wrongdoing. That's the headline out of an 800-page report issued by the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

It examined the deadly 2012 attack on the US diplomatic compound in Libya. Four Americans died,  including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State at the time, and she has been the focus of House Republicans' two-year investigation.   

Now, as she makes her way through California this week , how will the Benghazi report impact Clinton's White House bid? 

For more Take Two's Libby Denkmann was joined by Daniel Newhauser, House correspondent for the National Journal. He explained what this latest report consists of and whether or not it has any incriminating evidence for the Clinton campaign.  Thad Kousser, a political science professor at UC San Diego, also joined the show. Kousser looked at why there's been such a polarizing response to this report from the media and politicians alike.
