Amidst the furious Clinton allegations that Donald Trump is in
cahoots with Vladimir Putin on the DNC email leaks, Trump made an astonishing
He said at a news conference:
"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."
Apparently they didn't think their strategy through very well because here's what happened:
The reports asserted that Trump had invited Putin to conduct espionage against the US by hacking national security data. This disqualifies Trump from becoming president, they said. Many called his statement treasonous.
The Clinton clan seemed to think it had trapped Trump with his own statement. But in reality, it was Clinton upon whom the jaws of the trap clamped down.
CNBC did a story and video on this titled "The Democrats just fell for Trump's Russian email-hack bait." See it for yourself here.
I have written extensively on Russia-related issues which give in-depth treatment regarding this kind of manipulative technique that has been used to taint the US-Russia relationship over the years.
Now I've written two OpEdNews articles that provide further background on today's hot story, the Trump-Putin-Clinton scandal. They are:
"Trump's 'Putin Connection' Has Been Outed with a Surprising Result" describes how Clinton likely tried to set-up Trump to deflect attention away from the rigged primary election scandal that threatened her campaign.
