The American Conservative’s Rod Dreher believes, as does former CIA bin Laden unit chief Michael Scheuer, that Russia has the Clinton private server e-mails.
Evergreen headline: ‘Media Freaking Out Over Trump Statement.’ Today, as ever, it’s valid:
Donald J. Trump said Wednesday that he hoped Russia had hacked Hillary Clinton’s email, essentially sanctioning a foreign power’s cyberspying of a secretary of state’s correspondence.
Shocking? Sure. But Trump’s statement draws a bead on how completely reckless Secretary of State Clinton was with her private e-mail server.
Trump’s outrageous statement today only confirms that. There is almost certainly no question but that the Russians have those e-mails already. The only questions are what’s in them, and when are the Russians going to drop that particular propaganda bomb.
