Perfect answers. It’s always been incredibly stupid for Democrats to suggest he was publicly calling for Russians to hack Hillary especially because he was referencing her emails were already missing/presumably destroyed, by her.
Via Fox News:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller and President Trump communicated directly at one point during the long-running investigation into Russian election interference, when the president’s legal team submitted written testimony in response to Mueller’s questions on a variety of topics in November 2018.
And in some cases, Trump and his attorneys brought the sass.
One of Mueller’s questions referred to a July 2016 campaign rally, when Trump said, “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.”
That was a reference to the slew of documents deleted from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Trump’s comment prompted numerous frenzied accusations that he was openly sending a signal to Russian hackers.
Mueller’s report noted that hours after Trump’s remarks, a Russian-led attempt to access some Clinton-linked email accounts was launched, although there was no evidence Trump or his team directed or coordinated with that effort.
“Why did you make that request of Russia, as opposed to any other country, entity or individual?” Mueller’s prosecutors asked.
