Russians Hacked Clinton's Emails When Trump Asked Them To

Jul 13, 2018

President Donald Trump said at a press conference on July 27, 2016, "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing." At the time, the then-candidate was encouraging Russians to hack into his opponent Hillary Clinton's email account. He later said he was joking when he made the comment. Buzzfeed reports that Russian state hackers are now alleged to have made attempts to hack Clinton's campaign emails.
