Trump trolls media and Clinton campaign again

NY Times:

Trump Calls for Russia’s Help to Expose Emails Clinton Deleted

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Donald J. Trump said, referring to messages deemed personal by Hillary Clinton and deleted from her private email server.

It was an extraordinary encouragement of a foreign power’s cyberespionage, with Russia already accused of meddling in the election.
The assumption in the intelligence community is that the Russians and others already have what was on her server.  If that is the case, isn't Trump just asking them to share what they found about the missing emails?

As a practical matter, it would be very difficult to get what is on the server now since it is in the possession of the FBI and not hooked to the internet.

This looks to me like he is just playing the media and the Clinton campaign and they all seem to be falling for it.

This story may need a rewrite.  If the Russians do have the material, it would be better to find out now before it may be used to blackmail her if she is elected.

Those who read this blog regularly know I am not a Trump supporter, but I have seen his act for a while and recognize when he is toying with perceived opponents.
