Clinton camp says Trump encouraging foreign espionage

Hillary Clinton’s campaign on Wednesday lashes out at Donald Trump for encouraging Russia to trawl the former secretary of state’s emails, describing his comments as a “national security issue.”

“This has to be the first time that a major presidential candidate has actively encouraged a foreign power to conduct espionage against his political opponent,” says top Clinton advisor Jake Sullivan.

“This has gone from being a matter of curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue.”
