Trump  Trump's comment was condemned by the press and political figures, including some Republicans;  he replied that he had been speaking sarcastically. Katy Tur of NBC News had interviewed Trump immediately after the remark, noting she gave him an opportunity to characterize it as a joke, but he did not.
It was thought pious Christians were put off by Trump's lifestyle as a Manhattan socialite,  known for his three marriages and many affairs but not for any religious beliefs, who had boasted of groping women. To overcome Trump's possible poor reputation among evangelicals and veterans, Russian trolls created memes that exploited typical conservative social attitudes about people of color , Muslims , and immigrants.

Torshin met with Donald Trump Jr. The email was later turned over to federal investigators as part of the inquiry into Russia's meddling in the presidential election. Investigators were examining whether oligarchs invested in American companies or think tanks having political action committees connected to the campaign, as well as money funneled through American straw donors to the Trump campaign and inaugural fund.
At least one oligarch, Viktor Vekselberg , was detained and his electronic devices searched as he arrived at a New York area airport on his private jet in early Investigators have also asked a third oligarch who has not traveled to the United States to voluntarily provide documents and an interview.

Clinton says she never knowingly sent or received classified information, a possibly criminal action. In August, the FBI entered the case. The FBI is determining if criminal activity occurred in connection with the email setup. They assess cases to find out whether criminal activity occurred. He added that security experts hired by the campaign had found "no evidence" that the campaign's own internal systems were compromised.

The hacker groups, identified as Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear, used different but sophisticated techniques to break into the DNC and try to avoid detection. Most of the DNC emails appeared to have been stolen May From there, hackers were able to capture all data entered on the page.
That entity logged into the compromised email, read messages, and browsed attachments using a service called Tor. That service allows a user to mask his or her physical location, and the FBI was unsuccessful in its efforts to determine who had logged into the Clinton email system and why. The bureau determined that the email server did not initially use a correctly set-up encryption tool and used software with known security flaws.
