President Donald Trump has repeated like a mantra there was "no collusion!" between his campaign and Russians trying to meddle in the 2016 US election.
But in the shocking new 29-page document filed by the US Department of Justice against 12 Russian intelligence operatives for meddling in the 2016 election, there is one passage that brings to mind a moment when Trump publicly asked the Russians to do something -- and privately, they turned around and did exactly what he'd requested.
The indictment does not explicitly mention Trump asking for anything, but it does say this starting on page 7:
"The Conspirators spearfished individuals affiliated with the Clinton Campaign throughout the summer of 2016. For example, on or about July 27, 2016, the Conspirators attempted after hours to spearfish for the first time email accounts at a domain hosted by a third-party provider and used by Clinton's personal office. At or around the same time, they also targeted seventy-six email addresses at the domain for the Clinton Campaign."
On July 27, 2016, Trump gave a news conference in Florida. At that news conference, he asked Russia to find Clinton emails. That same day — “after hours” as the indictment notes, which strongly suggests this was after Trump’s statement — the hackers went after Clinton’s personal email.
