I heard him ask them to release the documents if they had them. There is a difference between telling them to go and hack her and saying since you hack her already can we have all the documents. Very smart man and chose his words wisely.

Cohen says the media at large is doing a huge disservice to the American people by ignoring the substance of Trump's arguments about NATO and Russia, and buying the Clinton campaign's simplistic smear that Trump is a Russian"Manchurian candidate.""That reckless branding of Trump as a Russian agent, most of it is coming from the Clinton campaign," Cohen said."And they really need to stop.""We're approaching a Cuban Missile Crisis level nuclear confrontation with Russia," he explained."And there is absolutely no discussion, no debate, about this in the American media."

"I'm going to take a look at it," he said."But you know, the people of Crimea, from what I've heard, would rather be with Russia than where they were. And you have to look at that, also ... just so you understand, that was done under Obama's administration."

Mermoud has longstanding ties to Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, who in 2010 helped pro-Russia Viktor Yanukovych refashion his image and win a presidential election in Ukraine. Manafort was brought in earlier this year to oversee the convention operations and its staffing.

Thousands of Democratic National Committee emails, meanwhile, were hacked and published by WikiLeaks on the eve of the party’s convention in Philadelphia this week. The mails showed that officials, who are meant to remain impartial, favoured Hillary Clinton and discussed ways to undermine her rival, Bernie Sanders. The leak led to the resignation of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

I never heard him say hack her emails. Like Syeda said he advised them to release them not hack her. They are making a big deal about this. Russia did not take credit for this anyway. Focus on Wikileaks they are going to bury her soon you watch. They are trying to divert.

"I recognize that flexibility and creativity might actually be good selling used cars and selling real estate, but when you want to be the head of an international superpower, precision and consistency are really important," Hayden told CNN's Erin Burnett.

Donald Trump appeared to incite Russia to hack into and publish Hillary Clinton’s private emails, as her campaign sounded “alarm” at growing evidence of a foreign power “interfering in an American election.

I cannot believe people can really think Trump is in with Russia. The last 4 presidents have constantly put strain on our relationship with Russia. Just to hear someone talking sense about the country throws the media into a frenzy.

Trump has been actively promoting the issue in making the case that Clinton “rigged” the system in her favor. But the Trump campaign seemed well aware of the potential for damage in his latest comments, quickly issuing a follow-up statement from Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, his running mate, that called on punishment for the hackers.

We all know this is just a distraction from the real issues. It is a very good plan I must say but we must look at the real issue and that is what the emails show. We are close to electing someone who has no sense of security and will do anything for a few bucks. It really is sick when you think about it.

In his July speech in Moscow, Page said that if the U.S. were to lift sanctions on Russia, American companies could begin to work with Russian entities in the oil business, according to the Huffington Post.

I saw a very interesting comment on a internet show that said Hillary encouraged Trump to run so that he would be the worst opponent ever and she would be elected. As crazy as it sounds a part of me hopes this is true. This guy just can't be for real. Would he really stoop this low to get dirt on Hillary? I just really hope not.

I do not know if Trump has any real relationship with Russia but I do know if Hillary becomes President she will start a war with Russia and more than likely every other country she does not like or understand.

I just hope that they both understand that a feud with Russia or any of the nuclear super powers right now would be tragic. We all would be sent back to the dark ages.
