Remember Trump's remarks in July 2016, "Russia, If You Are Listening! It turns out the Russians were listening -- actually, More. Than. Listening!

"In late July 2016, Mr. Trump publicly encouraged Russia to hack Mrs. Clinton’s emails and make them public. The indictment does not mention those remarks.

But according to the indictment, the same day Mr. Trump made those statements, on July 27, 2016, Russian hackers tried for the first time to break into the servers used by Mrs. Clinton’s personal offices.

'Conspirators attempted after hours to spearphish for the first time email accounts at a domain hosted by a third party provider and used by Clinton’s personal office,' the indictment said. Around the same time, according to the indictment, the hackers targeted 76 Clinton campaign email accounts.

During a rally in Florida that same day in 2016, Mr. Trump said, 'I will tell you this, Russia: If you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,' Trump said in Florida. 'I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.'"
