Trump's email trap catches Clinton campaign in a contradiction
The Hillary Clinton campaign didn't take long to respond to Donald Trump's comments about how Russia should try to find Clinton's missing 33,000 emails.How did most of the mainstream media miss this contradiction? I think the answer is they were too busy thinking they had caught Trump in a faux pas to think the issue through. Their narrative about Trump was also off base on substance, since the server is no longer available for the Russians to hack to begin with. If they have the emails in question they got them while she was still Secretary of State.
“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," senior policy advisor Jake Sullivan said. "That’s not hyperbole, those are just the facts. This has gone from being a matter of curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue.”
Charles Krauthammer said on "Special Report" tonight that Trump set a trap, and the Clinton campaign fell right into it.
He explained that the Clinton campaign statement said it would be a "national security issue," which contradicts Clinton's repeated assertions that the missing 33,000 emails were all of a personal nature, not work-related.
"If that's what's really in the 33,000 emails, then there's no national security to be involved at all," Krauthammer said. "So the Clinton campaign ends up admitting that perhaps there really is work-related - if not classified - stuff on the emails which she deleted."
Krauthammer said that could be grounds for a charge of obstruction, declaring that the Clinton campaign has been caught in a "complete contradiction."
