Donald Trump said he hopes Russian hackers “are able to find” the 30,000 emails Hillary Clinton erased from her illegal home server.
Trump made the comment in response to a reporter’s question during a press conference at his resort in Miami on Wednesday.
Trump noted that the FBI’s IT experts were unable to recover 30,000 of the emails Clinton erased from the server.
“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing,” he said, referring to the classified and Top Secret emails that Clinton hastily erased.
Trump added that the U.S. media would appreciate it if the hackers found the emails.
Somehow the Democrats managed to twist Trump’s words by claiming he urged the Russians to hack Clinton’s emails.
How can the Russians hack emails that were already deleted by Clinton?
Clinton’s camp is terrified that hackers got ahold of the emails before she had the chance to delete them.
Clinton has good reason to worry.
WikiLeaks plans to release “a lot more” hacked emails, internal memos and voicemails hacked from Democratic National Committee computers.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange promises to dump more emails in the months leading up to the November elections.
Assange lives in the Ecuadorean embassy in London to avoid extradition to the U.S. where he faces arrest and imprisonment.
Assange noted Clinton’s desperate tactics, such as blaming the Russians for leaking the hacked emails.
“What we have right now is the Hillary Clinton campaign using a speculative allegation about hacks that have occurred in the past to try and divert attention from our emails,” Assange said.
“I think this raises a very serious question, which is that the natural instincts of Hillary Clinton… that when confronted with a serious domestic political scandal, that she tries to blame the Russians, blame the Chinese, etc,” he continued. “If she does that when she’s in government, that’s a political, managerial style that can lead to conflict [with foreign governments].”
