To the chagrin of anyone who cares about the United States….and to the surprise of no one who understands how easily a personal server can be hacked…we have this, excerpted from Richard Pollock’s article for dailycaller.com:
A Chinese-owned company operating in the Washington, D.C., area hacked Hillary Clinton’s private server throughout her term as secretary of state and obtained nearly all her emails, two sources briefed on the matter told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The Chinese firm obtained Clinton’s emails in real time as she sent and received communications and documents through her personal server, according to the sources, who said the hacking was conducted as part of an intelligence operation.
The Chinese wrote code that was embedded in the server, which was kept in Clinton’s residence in upstate New York. The code generated an instant “courtesy copy” for nearly all of her emails and forwarded them to the Chinese company, according to the sources
In other words…
…by arrogantly, stupidly, bypassing the security which was absolutely necessary for the chief foreign officer of the United States…
…Secretary of State Hillary Clinton handed every piece of foreign policy information – including every classified piece of foreign policy information – sent to her by every source, both national and international, during her entire four years in office.
Is there any doubt that, along with China – every other country with even minimal intelligence-gathering resources got the same information Clinton handed them on a silver platter?
How extensively did this affect our foreign policy? How many sources of information for our country were “outed” – and dealt with – by the countries they operated in (one uncorroborated report claims 18-20 of our operatives in China were killed)?
But let’s ignore this. Let’s chalk it up to a little whoopsie of a mistake as we go after the important stories…like stormy daniels, whether michael cohen paid her and another women hush-money (blackmail?) to shut them up, and paul manafort’s financial dealings years before the presidential election.
Leave Hillary alone. An untouchable is an untouchable.
Just ask our mainstream media “journalists”.
