Krauthammers Take: Trumps Russia Comment Set a Trap That the Clinton Campaign Fell Into
NR STAFF July 27, 2016 7:47 PM
Charles Krauthammer said tonight that the Clinton campaign contradicted itself by calling Donald Trumps request for Russia to locate Hillarys missing e-mails a threat to national security: Well, that was his parting shot, and it was a clever thing to plant, because it is an issue. But I do think there was something about his reference to Russia that, whether planned or not, was extremely clever.
Im not the first to point out that it set a trap that the Clinton campaign fell right into. In that statement that you showed from the Clinton campaign, it said youre [Trump] is inviting a foreign power to invade our national security.
Now, these are the e-mails she deleted because they were supposedly private; these were the ones that were supposedly not work-related; these are the ones where she discusses her yoga lessons and wedding planning. So if that what was really in the 30,000 deleted e-mails, then theres no national security to be involved at all.
So the Clinton campaign ends up admitting that perhaps there really is work-related if not classified stuff in the e-mails that she deleted, which I think would be grounds for a charge of obstruction. Whether or not he meant it seriously it could have been sarcastic, it could have been sort of half-sarcastic as a way to plant the idea the fact is that it leaves the Clinton campaign in a complete contradiction.
If these are just private e-mails, then there is nothing to be concerned about. There is no espionage. There is no danger to national security that they will discover her yoga lesson schedule.
Hillary in yoga pants ?
If any sickly Russian that can't stop puking shows up at the emergency room, he's probably the one that hacked Hillary's yoga pants email.
“...If these are just private e-mails, then there is nothing to be concerned about. There is no espionage. ...”
Mentions the “E” word...
Ping to this one!
Wizardd of Brilliance @
Kraut is beginning to see why we are so fond of Trump diabolically clever. Wants to protect America.
PRESIDENTial Trump !
Even Charles, who hates Trump, sees that Trump played the DNC media for FOOLS and they bought it hook line and sinker..the Clinton goons ADMITTED that the whole yoga and babysitting emails were absolute BS those emails were CLASSIFIED
Brilliance by both Trump and Krauthammer.
Finally we’ve got a republican that can stick it to the Clintons!
I really enjoyed Trump’s presser today, laughing in my car as I listened to my radio!
Trump is winning for the same reason the Clintons won in 1992 and 1996. He's running a modern campaign, while the Dems are running a campaign like it's 20 years ago.
I have been laughing about this the rest of the day!
Hillary loses whether she takes the bait or not.
He should have also pointed out that you can’t “hack” emails that were deleted (mil spec erasure) from a server that is no longer in operation. Even Millenials know that. What a bunch of maroons the media and the Clintonistas are.
Another red herring diversion. Comey said it all then gutlessly covered for her—that is all you need to know, all the talking heads notwithstanding.
And, Trumps point about Hillary’s server being hacked by Vlad’s boys before the 30K ‘yoga’ emails were scrubbed. That was Trump’s genius in all this.
that journalist talking to him looked pissed at the end.
I hope someone is keeping track of all the times Trump is Spanking these jerks!
Mrs Clinton said that the other 30,000 emails were personal ... for her daughter’s wedding to her yoga schedule which she chose not to keep on file.
Hillary Clinton: I sent personal emails to my husband. Bill: I don’t use ...
