Requesting Intervention from Russia

On July 27, 2016 at a press conference recorded by the Associated Press, then candidate Donald J. Trump said the following: "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."

Inviting a hostile foreign power to interfere with our domestic politics is unforgivable at best. Given the financial ties that this man has with Russia, the invitation becomes that much more corrupt. This statement is tantamount to treason.
