Donald Trump is taking his desperation to new levels this week, as he is now asking Russia to hack Hillary Clinton to help him win the White House. Trump addressed the entire country of Russia Wednesday as he asked that hackers release the deleted emails from Hillary’s time as Secretary of State.
Trump said this via press conference:
“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you find the 33,000 emails that are missing. I think you’ll be rewarded mightily by our press!”
This comes just after allegations arose that Vladimir Putin and the Russian government were actually conspiring to help Trump win the 2016 election. This is the first time in American history, however, that presidential candidate has reached out to a foreign leader for help.
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has also spoken out about the Russian rumors:
“You’re right, he doesn’t trash talk everybody. He likes Vladimir Putin.” —@TimKaine on Donald Trump

Experts agree that Russian hackers are responsible for the leak of emails that came shortly before the Democratic National Convention began. The emails leaked contained information about the sabotage of Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.
So ask yourself, why would Russia be leaking these emails?
