The FBI warned Hillary Clinton last Spring hackers were trying to access her server and she refused to cooperate
When Guccifer 2.0 leaked hacked Democratic National Committee emails to the public Hillary Clinton and the Democrats quickly placed the blame on Russia. This was an attempt to take the focus of the American people off of the contents of the emails and place it on a nation Mitt Romney once was laughed at for calling America’s greatest geopolitical threat–Russia. It worked and some of the blame for the successful diversion needs to be laid at the feet of Donald Trump. (Hegelian Dialectic?)
If it turns out to be true that Russia hacked into the Democratic National Committee’s email account the question has to be asked: how did the Democrats and Hillary Clinton know this so quickly? We might now know the answer to that question because it turns out that just a few short weeks before the Democratic National Committee’s email account was hacked the FBI warned Hillary Clinton that she was the target of a possible cyberattack.
Here is more:
The FBI warned the Clinton campaign that it was a target of a cyberattack last March, just weeks before the Democratic National Committee discovered it had been penetrated by hackers it now believes were working for Russian intelligence, two sources who have been briefed on the matter told Yahoo News.
In a meeting with senior officials at the campaign’s Brooklyn headquarters, FBI agents laid out concerns that cyberhackers had used so-called spear-phishing emails as part of an attempt to penetrate the campaign’s computers, the sources said.
But the news get worse for the Democratic Presidential nominee because she refused to cooperate with the FBI:
One of the sources said agents conducting a national security investigation asked the Clinton campaign to turn over internal computer logs as well as the personal email addresses of senior campaign officials. But the campaign, through its lawyers, declined to provide the data, deciding that the FBI’s request for sensitive personal and campaign information data was too broad and intrusive, the source said.
Another source says Hillary Clinton was not given the details of who was trying to hack into her emails or whether or not it was a foreign government but the former Secretary of State should have known this was a real possibility and should have cooperated with the FBI.
But she did not want to give up any personal or campaign emails and I think we now know why that was. She put her own personal interests ahead of national security and she should be disqualified from the Presidency in the eyes of the American people.
