Arrogant Hillary’s Emails WERE Hacked — Virtually ALL of Them

Filed under: National Security,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 1:50 pm

I recall, but can’t find a related link proving it at the moment, that when the State Department’s or some other federal government computers were hacked, 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton essentially bragged that such hacking hadn’t occurred with her private server.

What I can show is that the FBI claimed it couldn’t find evidence of hacking in mid-2016, but still didn’t rule it out:

The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server found no evidence that her communications were hacked while she was secretary of state, but it made clear that “hostile actors” here and abroad could have done so.

Clinton “used her personal email extensively while outside of the United States,” FBI Director James B. Comey said, including “in the territory of sophisticated adversaries.”

It was “possible” that they accessed her account, he said. But “given the nature of the system and the actors potentially involved, we assess we would be unlikely to see such direct evidence.”

The finding, like others reached by the FBI, leaves the door open for ongoing accusations that Clinton may have allowed sensitive information to fall into the hands of Russia and China — both of which she visited on a number of occasions — or even Iran and North Korea.

Well, now we know she was hacked — bigtime:


A member of the House Committee on the Judiciary said during a hearing Thursday that a government watchdog found that nearly all of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails were sent to a foreign entity and that the FBI didn’t follow-up on that finding.

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said during a hearing with FBI official Peter Strzok.

“It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia,” he added.

Gohmert said the ICIG investigator, Frank Rucker, presented the findings to Strzok, but that the FBI official did not do anything with the information.

Strzok acknowledged meeting with Rucker, but said he did not recall the “specific content.”

“The forensic examination was done by the ICIG and they can document that,” Gohmert said, “but you were given that information and you did nothing with it.”

Of course he didn’t.
