Donald Trump encourages Russia to hack Hillary Clinton
About this newsies are saying something they've said about him every day for the last year.
"If any other candidate said this he'd be out of the race."
Donald Trump on Wednesday called on Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's email.
"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," Trump said during a news conference in Florida.
Shortly after his event ended, Trump repeated his call on Twitter.
"If Russia or any other country or person has Hillary Clinton's 33,000 illegally deleted emails, perhaps they should share them with the FBI!" Trump tweeted.
Clinton's campaign said Trump's comments amounted to encouraging "a foreign power to conduct espionage."
"This has to be the first time that a major presidential candidate has actively encouraged a foreign power to conduct espionage against his political opponent," said Hillary for America senior policy adviser Jake Sullivan.
"That's not hyperbole, those are just the facts.
"This has gone from being a matter of curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue."
This is why he doesn't need money to pay for publicity.
