In my humble opinion
I wouldn't be surprised if any little schoolboy with some computer experience hacked the server. But it simply sounds better if the Russians are suspected.

Re: Hacking the Democrats

He was being  sarcastic. He did not ask them to "hack" nor did he say the word. He asked them to "find". I know just how hard it is to separate reality from sarcasm for some people, but the fact is that you can't "hack" emails that have already been unlawfully deleted from an unsecured server. I don't know how much time you have spent managing classified information, but I have spent the better part of 20 years doing so. Your parroting of the attempts of deflection from the facts are both naive and laughable.

Re: Hacking the Democrats
asking a foreign govt to hack, no matter what, is still not a nice thing. Do you really think the

Russians have stuff that our NSA does not have access to?

telling me i get my notions from DNC is snarky and not nice

Re: Hacking the Democrats
He suggested that the Russians produce the emails that were possibly hacked already (the 30K that got deleted, against current law). The only treason that has happened was the storage of National Security related information on an un- secured server in a bathroom. I'm thinking Hillary has a lot more to answer for.

It helps to keep your facts straight instead of DNC talking points.

Hacking the Democrats
Today Trump asked the Russians to hack in and obtain Hillary's emails! Asking a foreign nation to hack American servers for political purposes strikes me as treasonous. Additionally, Trump is acknowledging that Russia indeed hacked into the Dems data.
