Fox News Anchor Bret Baier: Donald Trump Was “Joking” About Calling For Russia To Hack Hillary Clinton

From the July 27 edition of Fox News' Happening Now:

BRET BAIER: Now, [Trump] went from everything, the hacking investigation to police to Baltimore, dropping the charges against those police officers, to trade and Terry McAuliffe's answer about TPP to China to Russia to immigration to Anthony Weiner being a sleazeball and a pervert. We went the whole thing. Now what's going to get the most attention is when he turned to the camera and said, “Russia, if you're listening, we need to find the 30,000 missing emails.” Now I think some people are going to take that seriously. He said numerous times throughout this press conference that he had no tie to Russia, he doesn't even think it was Russia, but if it was, that he has no tie to it, but then, I think, was joking when he looked to the camera and said, “Russia, find these Hillary Clinton emails. The media would like that, will reward you for it.” I think that's what probably will get the most attention from this, but all of it will get everybody's attention.
