Donald Trump illegally encourages Russian hacking- unqualified to lead

Russian President Vladimir Putin says it doesn't matter who hacked the Democratic National Committee (DNC). By calling for Russia to do more hacking disqualifies candidate Donald Trump, in my opinion and apparently a lot of other people agree, like Senator Tom Kaine, too.

Washington- Democratic vice presidential nominee Senator Tim Kaine compared rival Donald Trump's comments on Russian hacking to Watergate, on Sunday September 4th.

Intelligence officials indicated that a July hack of the Democratic National Committee's servers was the work of the Russian government. Donald Trump responded to the email release with suggestions that the Russians should look for additional emails from Mrs. Hillary Clinton during her time at the US State Department.  

"He openly encouraged Russia to engage in cyberhacking to try to find more emails or materials, and we know these cyber attack on the DNC was done by Russia," Kaine said on an appearance on ABC's "The Week with George Stephanopoulos". 

Kaine compared Trump's response to the scandal that forced Republican President Nixon to resign from office. "A president was impeached and had to resign over an attack on the DNC during a presidential election in 1972,"  Kaine said.  "This is serious business. So contrast the Hillary situation, where the FBI said there was no need for legal proceedings, with an attack that is being encouraged by candidate Donald Trump on the DNC by Russia similar to what led to the resignation of a president 30 years ago."

Russian President Vladimir Putin denied his country's involvement in the hack earlier this week, but he praised the release of the emails. "Listen, does it even matter who hacks this data?," he asked Bloomberg News. "The important thing is the content was given to the public."

Meanwhile, Donald Trump's kind words for Russia's President Putin raises concerns as does some of his advisers connections to the Russian government.  (Editor's Huffington Post note:  Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar.)
