According to recently-revealed court documents, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is looking into a case that includes then-candidate Donald Trump’s public call for Russia to hack then-candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails.
During a 2016 campaign press conference, Trump made a plea directly to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s government.
“I will tell you this, Russia: If you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said in front of supporters in Florida. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”
According to court filings obtained by The Sparrow Project, those remarks are now part of an FBI investigation.
