As part of his continuing efforts to improve relations with Russia, Donald Trump today issued a clarion call for greater intelligence sharing with the Russian government: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing [from Hillary Clinton’s email server]. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.” Given that twenty-one journalists have been killed since Vladimir Putin came to power, I’m sure that will be an especially tempting carrot. Is this the kind of out-of-the-box thinking you could expect from a Trump administration? Oh, yeah … four whole years of it.
