The Trump Derangement Syndrome has now gone full bat-dung crazy. Here’s what those wonderful, kooky kids at the Washington Post had to say. “The Republican candidate for president [ahem] has invited a hostile foreign power to conduct an unlawful cyberattack against his opponent.” That took me aback, because I remember when hackers were liberal heroes when they released information about the U.S. military, and can even recall Obama telling Romney that Russia wasn’t an opponent.
But here’s the kicker. Trump wasn’t inviting anyone to hack Hillary’s server, because it’s in the FBI headquarters, and they’ve taken it apart. I mean, it’s not as if it has its own Facebook page. So when Trump asked whoever was doing the hacking to release Hillary’s emails, he was simply asking them to release what they already had. Here’s what he actually said: “If Russia or China or any other country has those emails, I’ve got to be honest with you I’d love to see them.”
As they say in New Jersey, you gotta problem with that? Because if you do, I can think of an alternative. Why not ask Hillary to release them? You know, the ones about the Clinton Cash machine.
And then there’s one more alternative. Don’t release the information, Russia, if you have it. That seems to be what the WaPo wants. And why would Russia want to do so, if it could use the information to blackmail her if she became president? If I were Putin, and I had all the emails, I’d release some of them now, but not the really damaging ones. Those I’d keep tucked up my sleeve, to be used next time we’re negotiating a treaty.
Hillary’s not a risk we can afford to take.
