Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump invited Russia on Wednesday to unearth some of Hillary Clinton’s missing emails from her time as secretary of state, drawing sharp criticism that he was urging a foreign power to spy on the U.S.

The accusations also cast a new spotlight on Mr. Trump’s expressions of respect for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
