Clinton Spox: Trump ‘Openly Inviting Russia to Engage in Cyberattacks Against the United States’

Wednesday on MSNBC, Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said Trump was “openly inviting Russia to engage in cyberattacks against the United States.”

Fallon said,”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 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.”
