During a press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland yesterday, President Donald J. Trump called on the Democratic National Convention to hand its server over to the FBI for further investigation. This comes amongst claims that Russia helped President Trump win the election, and his retort has conservatives laughing at liberals and their constant claims of corruption.
The campaign of 2016 was one of the most corrupt campaigns in history—but not from the side you might think. Despite what mainstream media such as CNN, MSNBC, and Huffington Post might tell you, Hillary was actually the one doing most of the behind the scenes colluding. It wasn’t President Trump.
Of course, this tactic of “blame others for your own faults” is as old as humanity, and there’s one reason why liberals continue to do it: the tactic is effective. It takes pressure and attention off of your own shortcomings, and pushes it onto your competitors. In this case however, it seems it blew up in the DNC’s face.
Breitbart reports on President Trump’s most recent demands towards the DNC;
Associated Press reporter Jonathan Lemire asked Trump if he believed U.S. intelligence agencies that say Russia interfered in the election or Putin’s assertion that Russia did not and if he would denounce that interference and tell Putin to never do it again.
Trump said he had confidence in both parties but added he would like to see the DNC hand over its server.
“I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be [Russia]. But I really do want to see the server,” he said.
The DNC refused to turn over its server to authorities, and, instead, had a private company, Crowdstrike, examine it for forensic evidence. Crowdstrike attributed the hacking to two Russian groups, Fancy Bear and Cozy Bear.
Trump added that he wanted to see the House Democratic Caucus server handled by Debbie Wassedrman-Schultz’s former IT aide, Imran Awan, who went missing. Many have wondered if he was “taken out” after performing shady government business, which is something that’s definitely happened in the DNC before.
He asked a very poignant question to the liberal reporter: “What happened to the servers of the Pakistani gentleman that worked on the DNC? Where are those servers? They’re missing. Where are they?” he asked. Of course, no liberal had a good answer—and that’s because there isn’t one. The DNC is rife with corruption, and everyone knows it.
“What happened to the servers of the Pakistani gentleman that worked on the DNC? Where are those servers? They’re missing. Where are they?” he asked.
He also asked what happened to the emails from Clinton’s home-brewed email server that she said were personal and could not be recovered.
“Thirty-three thousand emails gone — just gone. I think in Russia they wouldn’t be gone so easily. I think it’s a disgrace that we can’t get Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 e-mails,” he said.
“So I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today, Trump told Lemire.

He noted Putin’s offer for U.S. officials to work with Russian investigators to question those whom special counsel Robert Mueller indicted.
“What he did is an incredible offer. He offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators with respect to the 12 people,” Trump said.
Putin said Mueller could send questions for the 12 indicted Russian military intelligence officers and potentially attend interviews if the U.S. would be willing to reciprocate with those in the U.S. whom the Russians believe have committed crimes in Russia.
