The WH ‘alleges’ it was unclassified data, sure it was. obama’s schedule, etc. But I have to wonder if it was Hillary. Her and Cheryl and who knows who, emailed the Chinese donors of her foundation.. She has a long standing relationship with the Chinese.
Then there’s her reset button with Russia and obama’s promise off mike, to do more for Putin once he’s reelected.
Ben Rhodes, President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser to CNN:
“We do not believe that our classified systems were compromised”
But that’s contradictory to the the White House has said the breach only ever affected an unclassified system, that description belies the seriousness of the intrusion.
Rhodes JUST told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in an interview on “The Situation Room.” :
“We’re constantly updating our security measures on our unclassified system but we’re frankly told to act as if we need not put information that’s sensitive on that system,” he said. “In other words, if you’re going to do something classified, you have to do it on one email system, one phone system.
Enter the recent Russian hack into the ‘State Dept. system. To get to the White House, the hackers first broke into the State Department, investigators believe.
The State Department computer system has been bedeviled by signs that despite efforts to lock them out, the Russian hackers have been able to reenter the system. One official says the Russian hackers have “owned” the State Department system for months and it is not clear the hackers have been fully eradicated from the system.
Investigators believe the White House intrusion began with a phishing email that was launched using a State Department email account that the hackers had taken over, according to the U.S. officials.
The revelations about the State Department hacks also come amid controversy over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct government business during her time in office. Critics say her private server likely was even less safe than the State system. The Russian breach is believed to have come after Clinton departed State.
But hackers have long made Clinton and her associates targets.
The website The Smoking Gun first reported in 2013 that a hacker known as Guccifer had broken into the AOL email of Sidney Blumenthal, a friend and advisor to the Clintons, and published emails Blumenthal sent to Hillary Clinton’s private account. The emails included sensitive memos on foreign policy issues and were the first public revelation of the existence of Hillary Clinton’s private email address now at the center of controversy:
The address is no longer in use.
But what did she give up before she wiped it out? This on the heels Hillary will announce her candidacy for said WH. To me the WH, Clinton and Snowden all made this happen. Heck let’s throw in obama, Putin working with Snowden. Why not? Do you trust any of them? I sure don’t…~JP
