Pro-Russian Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton, the DNC, Hacking, and Sanity

Birds of a Feather
(The Donald loves Vlad and Vice Versa)

Trump said during his press conference in Doral, FL when asked by NBC News reporter Katy Kur, whether this week’s leak of DNC emails, which cyber-security experts believe were obtained by Russian hackers, gave him pause, he said flatly: “It gives me no pause. If they have them, they have them. You know what gives me more pause? That a person in our government, Crooked Hillary Clinton (be quiet he told Kur as she started to follow up) – I know you want to save her. That a person in our government, Katy, would get rid of 33,000 emails — that gives me a big problem.”

Ms. Kur tried to follow up and about whether believed Russia was behind the hack and first told her “Be quiet.” Then he quickly added, in his own words, not mine or anyone else’s in his own words and now he owns them

Trump said:

Russia, if you are listening (see below clip):  “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.” (that 30,000 emails he mentioned were those deleted by Hillary that all the committee already know about – personal, family and NOT State Department-related). Thus:  That one statement alone is astonishing … asking a foreign government to obtain information on a U.S. citizen, or to hack to obtain that information – in this case, emails that she deleted for whatever reason and from a presidential candidate, is amazing and that in and of itself could be construed to be a criminal action.

Short version of Trump's remarks here (1 minute or so):

To be fair, the whole Trump speech is here (over 1 hour):

Thanks for stopping. Stay tuned for more on this ... astonishing story to say the least.
