Trump invites Russians to hack Hillary: ‘I think you’ll be rewarded mightily by our press’

Donald Trump speaking at Turnberry -- (CNN screen grab)

We don’t know for certain if Russian intelligence agencies are really helping Donald Trump win this year’s presidential election… but he now openly admits he wants their help.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Trump directly encouraged Russia to help him politically by releasing emails that were deleted from Hillary Clinton’s private email server while she was Secretary of State.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you find the 33,000 emails that are missing,” he said. “I think you’ll be rewarded mightily by our press!”

It goes without saying that this is the first time that an American presidential candidate has openly called upon a foreign government to help him bring down his political opponent.

A wide range of security experts believe that Russian intelligence agencies are responsible for hacking and leaking embarrassing emails sent by officials at the Democratic National Committee that disparaged Bernie Sanders and his campaign.

Since then, questions have turned to whether Trump has any investments in Russia that might give the country influence over his decision making as president. Trump has denied any such investments, but nonetheless refuses to release his tax returns.

Former federal prosecutor says judge could void Trump’s pardon for Flynn — here’s how

Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner responded to President Donald Trump's pardon of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn by saying that it's entirely possible that the judge in Flynn's case could nullify the pardon.

"Just as Judge Emmet Sullivan refused to grant Barr’s corrupt motion to dismiss, I hope Judge [Emmet] Sullivan sets a hearing on whether this pardon is corrupt & hence illegal/void," said Kirschner.

Civil Rights attorney Andrew Laufer agreed, saying that he too wants to see how Judge Sullivan deals with the development.

Reporter busts Trump with damning list of times he previously claimed Flynn was guilty

Published

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump decided to issue a full pardon of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who was awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI in the course of the Russia investigation — despite Flynn's attempt to take back his plea and Attorney General William Barr's efforts to shut down the prosecution.

Although Trump and his supporters for years have painted Flynn as a hero, that was not always the sentiment, however. As BuzzFeed News' Jason Leopold noted in a lengthy Twitter thread, Trump previously was enraged with Flynn's criminal conduct, and publicly declared him a liar.

Nicolle Wallace bashes ‘two-bit criminal’ Trump for ‘skivvy’ tweet pardoning Michael Flynn

Published

Retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn admitted his guilt to Judge Emmett Sullivan, but President Donald Trump announced that the former director of national intelligence would never see jail time. After issuing a pardon to Flynn the day before Thanksgiving, MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace attacked the manner in which Trump announced the pardon: by tweet.

"Of all the sordid tales of Trump's presidency, this one might take the cake," said Wallace. "We knew this might be coming. We know Donald Trump likes the power to pardon. There's some reporting he's looking at a pardon for lots of other people. I wonder what your sense is about what else Donald Trump has up his sleeve?"
