A firestorm is igniting around Donald Trump's latest suggestion that it would be great if Putin and his hacking henchmen went after Hillary Clinton's emails. Here's his original statement:
“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr. Trump said, staring directly into the cameras during a press conference. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”His own veep choice is not happy.
Paul Ryan is not happy.

Now what would be really curious is if the American press -- and the American people -- give Donald Trump a pass on this reckless talk. Any bets?
