Following a comment by GOP nominee Donald Trump where he called upon the government of Russia to track down Hillary Clinton’s missing State Department emails, a CNN panel exploded in outrage with one panelist calling the suggestion “almost treasonous.”
Speaking about the hack of the DNC email — with Russians believed to be behind it — Trump flatly stated: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you find the 33,000 emails that are missing.”
CNN host David Gregory said he didn’t have words to describe Trump’s press conference, which was wildly all over the place as the GOP nominee deflected questions about his connections to the Russians.
When talk turned to Trump encouraging the Russian to actively seek the emails, adding, “I think you’ll be rewarded mightily by our press,” the panel didn’t give him the reception he likely expected.
CNN panelist Christine Quinn was incredulous.
“The man who thinks he’s going to be the president of the United States stood in front of the world and called on Russia and Putin to hack the emails of the former Secretary of State,” she exclaimed. “I mean, it’s honestly, and I know I’m partisan in this clearly, but it’s almost treasonous!”
“And it’s honestly treasonous to have 30,000 emails disappear,” former South Carolina Lt. Governor Andre Brauer shot back in defense of Trump.

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Saturday that his summit with Chinese leader Xi Xinping would launch a "new era" between the neighbours who are seeking to overcome troublesome differences.

The two leaders are meeting for the second time in a year in a bid to ease tensions over border disputes, the troubled Kashmir region and China's domination of trade between their huge economies.
Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet
Hours after Donald Trump attacked Sen. Mitt Romney for being critical of his call for the Chinese to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the president was back for another round, calling for the Utah Republiocan to be impeached.
Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
Trump claimed ‘inequality is down’ — one day later federal data showed the exact opposite is true
"The separation between rich and poor from 2017 and 2018 was greater than it has ever been."
Federal data released Thursday showed U.S. income inequality in 2018 reached the highest level since the Census Bureau began measuring it five decades ago, a finding that comes less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump said "inequality is down."
