Republican vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence released a statement Wednesday during Donald Trump's press conference, claiming that Russia would face "serious consequences" if they are behind the hacking of the DNC's emails. "The FBI will get to the bottom of who is behind the hacking," he wrote. "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." The Indiana governor’s statement came just as his running-mate Trump called upon Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's "missing" emails. "I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” the GOP nominee said. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."
