Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon responds to Donald Trump inviting Vladimir Putin to release information hacked from Hillary Clinton's server.
"Russia, if you're listening," Trump said Wednesday morning, "I hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. Let's see if that happens. That will be next."
BRIAN FALLON, CLINTON CAMPAIGN: Andrea, that is a galling statement from the Republican nominee for President of the United States.
Donald Trump, who is seeking to become our commander-in-chief is now openly inviting Russia to engage in cyber attacks against the United States.
This is a bridge too far.
We have heard all kinds of admiring comments from Donald Trump about Vladimir Putin, it's been quite strange for some time now. Just last week, the Republicans changed their platform to soften language that was against Russia on the issue of the Ukraine.
And last week, he also gave an interview suggesting he would abandon our NATO allies in Eastern Europe that are living under constant fear of an antagonistic Vladimir Putin.
This should not be a political issue. This should be a national security issue that all sides can come together and stand up to a strong man like Vladimir Putin and say, enough. I agree with Brandon Buck from Speaker Ryan's office, we need to stand up to Russia.
It is amazing to me that Donald Trump apologizes for Vladimir Putin's Russia at every turn and is now recklessly inviting him to engage in cyber attacks against our own home country.
The media seems more upset by Trump's joke about Russian hacking than by the fact that Hillary's personal server was vulnerable to Russia— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) July 27, 2016
