RUSSIA CLINTON CONNECTION

Reader comment on item: Blowback from Criticizing Trump
in response to reader comment: Putin-Trump connection

Submitted by Jill von Vinker (United States), Jul 29, 2016 at 13:49

You ARE drinking the PUNCH.
There is NO RUSSIA/PUTIN connection with Trump or the Trump Organization.
It is IN FACT Hillary and the Clinton organization who took $200,000,000 to approve a uranium deal and millions more for "favors" when HRC was the SOS.

Further, the ACTUAL comment by Trump was: ""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."

To be clear, Mr. Trump did not call on, or invite, Russia or anyone else to hack Hillary Clinton's e-mails.

Trump was just being whimsical in saying that "IF" some hacker group or just a guy who is lying on his couch eating pizza and typing, has any or all of those emails then they should release them. Later in a tweet, he stated to "give them to the FBI".
FEDERAL LAW STATES THAT HAVING DELETED THE ITEMS AFTER A FEDERAL SUBPOENA IS OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE OF A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION, Specifically 18 U.S. Code ยงยง 1505, 1506, 1509, 1510, 1511, 1512, 1513, 1515, 1516 and 1519 .

That is punishable by prison time. Director Comey stated that Mrs. Clinton would not pass a security review and was extremely careless with classified documents and information.
Any civilian would be sitting in jail right now if they had been so "careless".
