Hillary Clinton’s email scandal isn’t going away anytime soon.

In fact, it just got a whole lot more damaging.

That’s because Donald Trump forced Hillary Clinton to make an admission she may come to regret.

Appearing at a press conference in Doral, Florida, Donald Trump sarcastically wondered if Russia could find the 30,000 emails Hillary declared she deleted, rather than turn them over to federal investigators.

CBS News reports:

Donald Trump on Wednesday said he hopes that Russia tracks down 30,000 personal emails that Hillary Clinton deleted from her tenure as Secretary of State.

“I will tell you this — Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press,” the GOP presidential nominee said at a press conference in Miami.”

The media outrage machine kicked into high gear as left-wing partisans tried to distract from Trump’s actual message — that Hillary was allowed to get away with criminal behavior because the system was rigged.

But Hillary’s campaign responded, and their statement may have compounded Hillary’s legal issues.

Hillary’s campaign claimed finding the 30,000 missing emails was a “national security issue.”

But when Hillary announced she had deleted 30,000 emails because they were personal, she described the contents of those emails as only containing recipes and yoga routines.

Dr. Charles Krauthammer realized the problem Hillary’s campaign created and described the ramifications — including admitting criminal behavior — on Fox News.

Breitbart reports:

Krauthammer said, “I do think there was something about his reference to Russia, which, whether planned or not, is extremely clever. I’m 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, you know, you’re inviting a foreign power to invade our national security. Now, these are the emails that she deleted because they were supposedly private. These the ones that were supposedly not work-related. These are ones where she discusses her yoga lessons and wedding planning. So, if that’s what really [is] in the 30,000 deleted e-mails, then there’s 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, on the emails which she deleted, which I think would be the grounds for a charge of obstruction.”

Throughout the campaign, Trump has masterfully manipulated a hostile press.

His latest press conference just might be the best example of his ability to control the media narrative.
