Donald Trump Asked Russia To Hack Hillary Clinton's %2230,000 Missing EmailsAfter Donald Trump on Wednesday asked Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s “30,000 missing emails,” the Democratic candidate’s policy director shot back with a statement calling Trump’s behavior “the first time that a major presidential candidate has actively encouraged a foreign power to conduct espionage against his political opponent.” During Trump’s speech, Republican vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence released a statement claiming that Russia would face serious consequences for “interfering” in the U.S. election, but, shortly afterward, Trump published a tweet reinforcing his earlier sentiment. Clinton adviser Jake Sullivan added in the statement: “This has gone from being a matter of curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue.”
