Trump Asks Russia to Hack Hillary Clinton’s Email

HeadlineJul 28, 2016

Meanwhile, on the Republican side, Donald Trump called on Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s email.

Donald Trump: “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.”

The comments come as U.S. intelligence agencies continue to blame Russia for the hack of the 20,000 leaked DNC emails. Speaking at the DNC Wednesday, retired Navy Rear Admiral John Hutson said Trump’s call to hack Clinton’s email was “criminal intent.”
