The Wall Street Journal: Republican activist referenced current Trump aides in his campaign to obtain Clinton emails

WASHINGTON—A longtime Republican activist who led an operation hoping to obtain Hillary Clinton emails from hackers listed senior members of the Trump campaign, including some who now serve as top aides in the White House, in a recruitment document for his effort.

The activist, Peter W. Smith, named the officials in a section of the document marked “Trump Campaign.” The document was dated Sept. 7, 2016.

She said the deleted emails concerned personal matters.
