I found no mention by the big fact-crunchers on what was obvious at the time -- Trump was joking.
But the fact-checkers don't seem to care.
The 'rats have no sense of humor or irony. It's an intellectual defect common to every single one of them.
When Trump told that joke he said if Russia was listening they should release the 30,000 missing emails from Hillary’s illegal server if they had them....This issue was front and center in the news cycle at that time. In no way did he say go and hack the DNC email system. There was no way they could have hacked Hillary’s illegal email system at that time because it had already been wiped clean (with a cloth). Schiff is a shameless liar.
The DNC hack had already occurred and Hillary’s e-mail server that Trump joked about the Russians finding e-mails from had been shut down for a long time.
Seth Rich had already been murdered for being the ADNC leak.
