Reagan: “Tear down that wall.” Trump: “Tear down that firewall.” He may have been joking. He may have been trying to steal headlines from the DNC (if so, it worked). But it was more than a little odd to see Donald Trump inviting the Russians to find Hillary Clinton’s missing emails: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.” Maybe Trump should ask the Russians to hack his tax returns.

+ Mike Pence: “If it is Russia and they are interfering in our elections, I can assure you both parties and the United States government will ensure there are serious consequences.”

+ In other news, “Donald Trump said Wednesday he would consider recognizing Crimea as Russian territory and lifting the sanctions against the country if he’s elected president.”
