It looks like Donald Trump will do anything to get elected, even betray his own country by offering a bounty on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s head. In another startling display of idiocy, Trump said that if Russian agents could find Clinton’s missing 30,000 emails, they will be rewarded.
“I will tell you this, Russia if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”
All fingers point to Russia as being behind the leaked emails of the Democratic National Committee and Trump has used the emails, which show the Democratic party’s favoritism toward Clinton over Sanders, as a weapon. The leaked emails rocked the DNC on the first night with Sanders and Clinton supporters going after each other. The culprits behind the leak knew exactly what they were doing in an attempt to cause havoc. Here is what the Clinton campaign had to say about the leak:
“Experts are now saying that the Russians are releasing these emails for the purpose of actually helping Donald Trump,’ Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, told CNN on Sunday. ‘”
“‘That foreign actors may be trying to influence our election — let alone a powerful adversary like Russia — should concern all Americans of any party,’ said ranking House Intelligence Committee Democrat Adam Schiff on Monday.”
Trump now wants Russia to go after Clinton’s emails. Clinton was the U.S Secretary of State, which is an extremely vital and sensitive position to U.S security and Trump wants Russia to hack her communications. Trump’s requests mark the first time in U.S. history that a presidential candidate asks a foreign government, that at times has been an adversary of the U.S, to conduct security breaches on American soil and on a former American government official. His actions are tantamount to sedition.
While his statement may sound ridiculous, it should send shivers down the spines of American voters. Trump will do anything to gain power, including soliciting foreign agents to go after American institutions and government officials. The scary part is what he would do to America if he becomes president.
