The candidate in US presidents from Republican party, Donald trump urged Russia to “find” the lost correspondence of another candidate at the head of the American state, Hillary Clinton, writes The Wall Street Journal.
“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you could find 30 thousand missing letters [from the correspondence of Hillary Clinton]. I think you’ll be greatly rewarded with our press,” said trump.
In March 2015 the New York Times reported that Clinton, occupying the post of Secretary of state in 2009-2013, conducted official correspondence with personal mail, and not government servers. She explained such behavior great convenience. Later, she voluntarily handed over to the Ministry of justice 55 thousand workers printed letters, and more than 30 thousand were deleted because, according to her, this part was of a private nature.
In early July of this year, the FBI on the results of the investigation recommended that the U.S. justice Department not to bring a case against Clinton.
Trump’s statement comes amid the controversy surrounding the cyber attacks on mail to the US Democratic party. 22 Jul WikiLeaks spaced letters and documents of the National Committee of the Democrats (DNC) associated with Clinton. They had discovered the conspiracy of the employees of the Committee against ex-participant of presidential race from the Democrats, Bernie Sanders.
The New York Times, citing employees of several companies in the field of computer security, wrote about the “Russian trace” in this cyber attack. Later, the newspaper, citing Federal sources, wrote that, as reported by U.S. intelligence agencies to the White house, with “high probability” for tampering with the mail are the Russian authorities.
Campaign Manager Clinton, Robby Mook, said that tampering with the mail party was allowed “the Russians to help Donald Trump”. Current President Barack Obama did not rule out the possibility that Russia will try to influence the upcoming elections of the American President.
The trump twice commented on these allegations — in particular, he called them ridiculous and far-fetched. In turn, the partner of trump, the candidate for Vice-President from the Republican party, Mike Pence threatened “serious consequences” if the FBI can prove the Russian involvement in the cyber attack, and that Russia is intervening in U.S. elections”.
The Kremlin is the data about the Russian trace in cyberface was absurd.
