Trump Calls on Russia to Find Hillary Clinton’s Missing Emails


#1

DORAL, Fla. — Donald J. Trump said Wednesday that he hoped Russia had hackedHillary Clinton’s email, essentially encouraging an adversarial foreign power to cyberspy on a secretary of state’s correspondence.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr. Trump said, staring directly into the cameras during a news conference. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

Mr. Trump’s call was an extraordinary moment at a time when Russia is being accused of meddling in the United States’ presidential election. His comments came amid questions about the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s computer servers, which American intelligence agencies have told the White House they have “high confidence” was the work of the Russian government.

Later in the news conference, when asked if he was really urging a foreign nation to hack into the private email server of Mrs. Clinton, or at least meddle in the nation’s elections, he dismissed the question. “That’s up to the president,” Mr. Trump said, before finally saying “be quiet” to the female questioner. “Let the president talk to them.”

The Clinton campaign immediately accused Mr. Trump of both encouraging Russian espionage against the United States and meddling in domestic politics.
“This has to be the first time that a major presidential candidate has actively encouraged a foreign power to conduct espionage against his political opponent,” said Jake Sullivan, Mrs. Clinton’s chief foreign policy adviser. “This has gone from being a matter of curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue.”

This all gets back Ms. Clinton’s lack of concern for national security. If she had followed the law and respected government policy in this matter, she wouldn’t be having these difficulties. Of course then it would have been less convenient for her to have made her cash deals with foreign governments.

Does Trump have diarrhea of the mouth? Yes. I wish he’d learn to keep his mouth shut and let Hillary boil in her own stew.

As for DNC maybe they are as dumb as Hillary. They got caught with their pants down too.

It would great if we had a real candidate for president instead of candidates who are more fit for the front of the “Nation Enquirer.”

This cr@p will continue until and … probably after the election.
(If Trump were to win)

The MSM is nothing more than an extension of the Socialist/Democrat Party!

What he actually said:

If it is Russia, which it’s probably not, nobody knows who it is, but if it is Russia, It’s really bad for a different reason. Because it shows how little respect they have for our country when they would hack into a major party and get everything.

But it would be interesting to see, I will tell you this, Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. Let’s see if that happens, that will be next
.

A.) He didn’t call on them to hack anyone. He was commenting from the perspective that they had already hacked Hillary Clinton’s unsecured server and had in their possession the 33,000 emails that were so potentially damaging that Hillary Clinton would go so far as to commit a felony to remove them from the national debate.

B.) If Russia does have these emails, it would most definitely be in America’s best interest to see them released before Hillary Clinton weasels her way into the White House where those emails will become leverage against her.

If Russia has them, there’s no way they will release them. They will wait to see if Hillary wins and use them against her. Hillary has been compromised and can be blackmailed. Guaranteed.

C.) It is also highly probable that whatever is in those emails implicates Barack Obama in impeachable offenses and would, therefore, also be useful leverage against him.

Cher Rants About Trump’s Alleged Ties to Putin

Cher posted a bizarre photo of Donald Trump linking him with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

On Tuesday night, the 70-year-old singer posted a badly photo-shopped picture on her Twitter account that shows Trump in bed with Putin. Along with the photo Cher wrote that Trump was willing to do whatever Putin wants him to do.

“Ok daddy,” Cher tweeted in the voice of Trump. “I’ll do whatever you want. Just make me list and promise you’ll respect me in the morning.”

Gee! According to “Nation Enquirer” Cher is getting ready to kick-off. This is how I entertain myself on the grocery line. I read the front page! Who would have she’d politically active in here condition?

The Enquirer has had a lot bad things to say about Hillery so they are on my good side right now.


#6

Don’t really care what Cher or Susan Sarandon are doing. Cher Lloyd, maybe. Or better yet, Nathalia Ramos :yes:


#7

I’m not a Trump fan but, I do like this comment about Hillary’s lost emails. It says much about her lack of proper regard for classified info and going so far was to set up a personal server to conduct government business which would get any other government employee fired or incarcerated.


#8

Now it has come out that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was warned by the FBI that their computers might have been attacked by “spear-phishing” emails. Just goes to show you no matter how much experience you have, it will never make up for bad judgment. This alone in my eyes should disqualify her from any public office. I am wondering how the top DNC donators are reacting to their personal information being potentially stolen by hackers.


#9

I think Hillary was wrong for doing what she did with her emails, but I also think it is disgraceful that a candidate running for the presidency of the United States would suggest, or even hint, that a foreign power known to be hostile to our interests stage a cyberattack on America.


#10

Trump did no such thing.


#11

I don’t know how you can say Russia is hostile to our interests when Hillary gave them a pool reset button in 2008 and Obama in 2012 said that as soon as he was re-elected he could make those deals with Vlad…:wink, wink, wink. Don’t we trust Russia now that we let them in the US to inspect our military capabilities? Don’t we trust them since Obama reduces our nuke capacity and doesn’t require them to reduce theirs?

The Obama Regime doesn’t consider Russia hostile. OBama told Romney in 2012 that it was ludicrous that Romney called them our enemy.

Do you remember any of this or were you still in pull ups?

I am not the Obama administration. I am not Hillary Clinton. I am me.

I say that Russia is hostile to our interests. Do you disagree?

Trump did no such thing.

“I hope you find those 30,000 emails…” How do you think Mr. Trump expects Russia will find those 30,000 emails? By cyberespionage, is how. Thus, Mr. Trump essentially is saying “I hope you are able to hack your way into an American server and find those 30,000 emails.”

#14

He was actually taking a swipe at Clinton’s disregard for handling classified info and allowing her unsecured server to be hacked. He as not promoting or requesting anything from Russia. In my opinion, it was great comment to make because it covered lots of territory while taking a swipe at Clinton.


#15

If you mean our supporting ISIS with arms and cash and starting and encouraging the continued rape of the middle east then we are in odds with Russia.


#16

Hillary this, Trump that. Blah, blah, blah blah blah.

Bottom line.

Hillary Clinton - wrong on most every issue, incompetent and an unindicted criminal who couldn’t qualify for a security clearance.

Donald Trump - right on most every issue, politically tone deaf (goes out of his way to humiliate/alienate) and a generally miserable son of a bitch.

After 8 years of divisive arrogance and unconstitutional malfeasance at the highest levels of government, the American people have given themselves a choice between these two people. I would like to tell you how unbelievable it is that we’ve so quickly fallen as a people and a nation. Unfortunately, I can’t. We’ve been heading for a steep fall for a very long time.

The people have not been well served by the very people they’ve elected to serve them well. Political hacks run our various agencies for the benefit of those politicians who appointed them. Within some of our most powerful agencies/institutions, those in leadership roles are often little more than political operatives. Lois Lerner of the IRS comes to mind, as does John Koskinen of the VA and Loretta Lynch of the Justice Department. Manipulating power, rendering favors and performing damage control are seemingly their main objectives. This has been true of both parties, but with this current regime it has become an art form.

As disconnected from reality as the current administration has been, many/most of this nation’s people appear to be even more disconnected from the reality of where we are and how we got here. Do most people even care? I don’t believe they care enough to bother thinking beyond the political platitudes spewed out from all sides.

To be blunt, if we are to ever snap out of this devolvement I doubt it will be the result of a recognition of some great leader or the election of a unique group of wise men.

Nope - I fear we are too far down the wrong path. There are too many of us who don’t know enough, don’t care to know and are content to simply join up with similar low-information, superficial reactionaries every 2 or 4 years in order to recite the latest jingles and political spin/disinformation and outright lies.

I fear more than anything else that external attacks and long soup lines will be required to turn our current malaise into a call to action - a call to take our duty as a free people seriously. Sadly, that may not even be enough.

Now, on to a more serious endeavor - where in the hell is my remote control? Snoop Dog is going to be on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” in a few minutes. Say, ya got any “pot”?

Tone police is why we the right loses, the left has no such thing.

[/quote]Yeah isn’t it funny how arms and money gets to ISIS from this administration? rhetorical question.


#19

look guy…those emails have been conveniently disposed of by this gorgon of a democrat candidate for the presidency. There’s no way they can get anything. YOU don’t even know and it is unlikely that Russia did it in the first place. HOWEVER, seeing as you’re so upset about this…how upset were you with that kid hackig Sarah palin’s emails? How upset were you with Chuck Robb hacking the phones of Doug Wilder? OR Jim McDermott and his constituents the Martins, hacking newt Gingrich’s cell phone calls? You DIDN"T have a problem with that now did you. Face it. Don’t be such a liar. YOU are only upset when you can slander someone on the right with wrong doing. Otherwise, lawlessness is your party’s forte. And because democrat lawlessness has invaded every aspect of government and law…your party gets away with it. And YOU defend it. I"d be ashamed, but then, i’m a conservative, not a democrat.


#20

As usual, Trump steps all over what should have been a very positive news story/cycle for him and sends the focus away from the actual content of the emails - that they show the DNC process was indeed rigged.

However, to take Trump’s clumsy wording - isn’t his wording always clumsy? - and infer that he was somehow calling on the Russian government to perform espionage is a bit of a stretch.

I think it more likely that Trump thinks as I and many others do. That is to say, Russia has ALREADY hacked Hillary Clinton’s “homebrew server” and ALREADY has the 30,000 emails in its possession.
