During a press conference on Wednesday, Donald Trump suggested that Russia should hack Hillary Clinton’s emails. She 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.” Hillary for America was quick to respond with a statement from Senior Policy Advisor Jake Sullivan. He called Trump’s comments a matter of “national security.” A copy of the campaign’s statement is below.
“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. 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.”
