The establishment media is insisting today that Donald Trump asked dictator Vladimir Putin’s Russian hackers to break into Americans’ computers.
But the plain text of Trump’s lengthy 10,000-word press conference today shows him repeatedly saying that the hackers — likely Russians — should release the emails they have already hacked from Hillary Clinton’s email server at the Department of State.
So Trump’s media-magnified sentence — “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing” — refers to emails that he thinks have already been hacked and stored away in some Russian server farm.
Logically, Trump can’t be asking the Russian to hack emails tomorrow when they have already been hacked from sloppily protected U.S. computers, and then stashed away in a server in Siberia.
Trump also suggested that the Russians have already hacked emails from Obama’s Democratic National Committee.
When asked about the DNC emails, Trump repeatedly says Russia has likely already hacked emails from the DNC computers.
