Then came the money quote, or the bait, when he said: “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 quick take for the TL;DR crowd.
Democrats seem awfully concerned that Russia might release 30,000 e-mails about nothing more than wedding planning/Hillary’s yoga routines.
1) There was nothing secret in HRC’s 30K deleted e-mails.
2) It’s a “national security issue” if Russia gets them.
Pick one, Hillary camp.
Update (20160728): Kurt Schlichter (my new favorite read), touches on this in his new Townhall column:
The reaction of the Democrats and the suddenly-not-Walter Duranty media was classic. Like a teen confronting her dad who is holding the baggie of weed he found in her nightstand, the DNC cried “OMG, I can’t believe you went through my stuff!” before throwing herself sobbing on her bed at the unfairness of it all.
A few paragraphs down, however, he touches on something important:
So if Putin is trying to buy himself a pal by forcing Trump on America by exposing the Democrats’ massive corruption, well, that’s an iffy bet.
Does Putin want to avoid four years of dealing with President Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit? Why would he want to do that when it’s absolutely certain he’s sitting on the contents of her email servers, including the good stuff the FBI refused to charge her with obstruction of justice for deleting?
