Donald Trump invited Russia to hack Hillary Clinton on Wednesday, asking them to find “the 30,000 emails that are missing” from her time as secretary of state.“It would be interesting to see, I will tell you this, Russia, if you're listening I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” the Republican nominee said at a news conference in Florida. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

Russia, among other Nations most likely already has access to those Emails

Here's an idea. How about you dont store top secret classified data on a home brew server.

According to the FBi more than Russia got their hands on those emails LOL.
her servers were already hacked.

This whole faux outrage act is pretty funny. The DNC got hacked. Who wudda thunk it? Emails matter all of a sudden? It seems that the Democrats have a security problem. This thread reminds me of people that call the cops when someone stole their drugs. The DNC screwed up, broke their own rules, lied to their party, cheated a party candidate, broke their own bylaws and it is Trump's fault, even tho nobody has any proof that Russia hacked the DNC server. There is lots of conjecture but conjecture isn't proof. Even if Russia DID hack the DNC server they didn't write the emails. They didn't have a problem putting more than 2000 classified emails on a private server. It didn't matter when it was government information. Now all of a sudden server security is an issue. Maybe these people should pull their collective heads out of their collective asses and use employ some effective cyber security. Blame Assange, no wait, Putin. That isn't working, let's blame Trump. The DNC hosed this up big time and people immediately try to divert blame to everyone else. Hillary is tanking in the polls and the convention isn't even over yet. I can't wait for the next dump. They are like "Truth Bombs". The truth shall set you free.

Russia and China both actively have teams that try to hack servers. It is common knowledge.

And that excuses for Trump to promote and support Russia's actions?

Trump is supporting a foreign nation, which is often seen as antagonistic to the USA, to hack his political opponents emails.... But I get it, the Trumpers gotta have an excuse for everything to justify this ****s actions and words.

Right after DWS got fired I wondered how long it would take someone high in the chain of command for the Democrats to downplay the DWS situation by stating that it wasn't a big deal because they didn't like DWS and were going to fire her anyway. It was about two hours later an article appeared in Politico doing just that. Politico is just a mouthpiece for the DNC right now.

Oh the outrage. Poor DWS. Hillary screwed the pooch. The DNC lied and got caught. They hacked the server before Trump said that. Your cause is lame. It is called rhetoric. Get over it.

What does DWS have to do with this? What does the hack on the DNC server have to do with this? You think its okay for a Presidential candidate to actively encourage a foreign power to conduct espionage against his political opponent?

This would have been just unbelievable that a Presidential Candidate would have said this a year ago.

Now it's just par for the course.

And almost half of the nation are going to vote for this idiot!

Unbelievable.

More on this horribleness from the NYT:

DORAL, Fla. — Donald J. Trump said Wednesday that he hoped Russia had hacked Hillary Clinton’s email, essentially encouraging a foreign power’s cyberspying on a secretary of state’s correspondence.
“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr. Trump said, staring directly into the cameras. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”
Mr. Trump’s call was an extraordinary moment at a time when Russia is being accused of meddling in the U.S. presidential election. His comments came amid questions about the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s computer servers, which researchers have concluded was likely the work of two Russian intelligence agencies.
Later in the news conference, when asked if he was really urging a foreign nation to hack into the private email server of Mrs. Clinton, or at least meddle in the nation’s elections, he dismissed the question. “That’s up to the president,” Mr. Trump said, before finally telling the female questioner to “be quiet — let the president talk to them.”

"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,” said Jake Sullivan, Mrs. Clinton’s chief foreign policy adviser. “This has gone from being a matter of curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue.”

If DWS and the DNC server doesn't have anything to do with this then what are you so upset about?

If Russia did do it, it's a MAJOR issue.

The DNC hack is Watergate, but worse.

"The email dump isn’t a high-minded act of transparency. It’s a foreign power attempting to swing an election for its favored candidate."

Republican Senator Joseph McCarthy is most likely spinning in his grave as his parties nominee for President seems to be in the thick of Russia attempting to help swing the election in his favor so our allies in NATO and Europe can be weakened when Trump takes office.

In fact, Ronald Reagan is probably spinning more RPM's per minute than even McCarthy is right now.

I'm thinking you're missing the point. If Russia hacked Hillary's server, then we'll know what is in the emails. According to Hillary, they are just old recipes, conversations with Chelsea and Bill. Stuff like that. So no harm.

Otjerwiser, we'll know more about Hillary's lies and mishandling of state secrets. Since we'll then know that Russia already has the details, again, no harm, no foul.

Hillary allowed that " antagonist Nation " to access highly classified documents by creating a home brew server

Which is worse ? If you need help figuring that out just let me know

It is amazing how Democrats (all of a sudden) are worried about cyber and national security after they massively hosed themselves.
