Brit Hume told "Special Report with Bret Baier" viewers Wednesday that the reaction to Donald Trump's comments today were "a little histrionic and hysterical."
I a press conference, Trump appeared to appeal to Russia to find Hillary Clinton's missing emails. The Trump campaign ad surrogates are now on the defense, trying to explain away the candidate's remarks as a joke. Meanwhile, the Clinton campaign says this has become a matter of national security.
Hume thinks Trump was not being serious in asking Russia to hack Clinton's server.
"...[He] was really just trying to stick it to Hillary Clinton for having so sloppily handled classified information, that is possible that her server was being subject to being hacked by the Russians and who knows who else," said Hume.
