A USEFUL ADMISSION THAT HER SERVER WAS NOT HACKED:

Trump Asks Russia to Dig Up Hillary's Emails in Unprecedented Remarks (Andy Greenberg, 7/27/16, Wired)

DONALD TRUMP'S SCHADENFREUDE in the DNC's embarrassing email leak is standard practice in America's messy electoral politics. Today, though, his casual request that Russian hackers dig up Hillary Clinton's emails--sent while she was U.S. Secretary of State--for his own political gain has sparked a new level of outrage among cybersecurity experts.

As the controversy continues to swirl around a likely-Russian hack of the Democratic National Committee, Trump responded to a reporter's question at a press conference Wednesday by inviting Russia to do him another favor: collect and leak the emails that Clinton deleted from the private server she ran during her time as Secretary of State. "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you'll be rewarded mightily by our press," he said.
