Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
This is hilarious. Trump asking Russia “If you hacked Hillary’s private email server, will you give the FBI copies of the stuff she deleted?”
Hey, they need it to complete their investigation, right? What, are Democrats against law and order?
This is genius. It forces everyone to recall that Hillary ran a private server for official government business, that she deleted emails instead of giving them to our own government, and that her carelessness probably enabled Russia to see her emails including anything that was classified.
This forces Hillary’s campaign onto the defensive and robs her of momentum. And it threatens Hillary with the possibility that stuff she believed safely deleted might come to light so she must prepare the battle-space for that possibility, which further distracts her from campaigning.
Glenn Reynolds comments: “Troll Level: Supreme Galactic Overlord.” All of that.
Never thought I’d find something to admire about Trump – but here we go.
