You Won’t Believe Who Democrats Said Swiped Their Anti-Trump Research

Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and gained access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to DNC officials. The networks of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were also targeted by the Russian spies, but according to the Washington Post, the intruders so thoroughly compromised the DNC’s system they also were able to read all e-mail and chat traffic.

The Washington Post also reports that some of the hackers had access to the DNC network for about a year, but all were expelled recently in a major computer clean-up campaign, the committee officials and experts said.

“The DNC said that no financial, donor or personal information appears to have been accessed or taken, suggesting that the breach was traditional espionage, not the work of criminal hackers.

“‘It’s the job of every foreign intelligence service to collect intelligence against their adversaries,’ said Shawn Henry, president of CrowdStrike, the cyber firm called in to handle the DNC breach and a former head of the FBI’s cyber division. He noted that it is extremely difficult for a civilian organization to protect itself from a skilled and determined state such as Russia.

“‘We’re perceived as an adversary of Russia,’ he said. ‘Their job when they wake up every day is to gather intelligence against the policies, practices and strategies of the U.S. government. There are a variety of ways. [Hacking] is one of the more valuable because it gives you a treasure trove of information.‘”

Hillary Clinton has long been in the Russian’s spy sights, but Trump hasn’t been in politics for very long; so foreign agencies are playing catch-up, analysts say.

Although many national polls show Trump trailing Clinton, this is a sign that the Russians believe Trump has a legitimate chance to be our next president. It looks like the Russians want to be prepared no matter who wins the race for the White House in November.

Do you think the Russian theft of anti-Trump research from the DNC is a bullish sign for Trump’s campaign?

    “The DNC said that no financial, donor or personal information appears to have been accessed or taken”
    They also said that Hillary’s computer was not hacked, well then it may have been “compromised” but nothing classified, then well there may have been some classified but,…..the FBI is conducting an “inquiry”…….If they have your credit card info, now would be a good time to tell your bank you need new cards.

    It would be hilarious if they hacked Clinton’s files and took all of “her” money. I wonder what she would say then

      He sure seems to be better than the rest, but he’s still human. We have to wait for Messiah to return, and He will lead us to conquer ALL evil will be swept clean off the earth–Islam, politics, religion that’s been infiltrated by the devil (virtually all of it is), education likewise, and whatever–and we will finally have peace on earth. HalleluYAH!

    Hitlery is going to jail where she should have been a long time ago. Hopefully the rapist can go along with her to keep her company. Shame on the Dems for even putting this slime up for Pres of the US..

    Trump is going to elected by the PEOPLE who want to make the U.S. great again, fix our economy and regain other countries trust who don’t now due to this MULATTO TURD occupying our WH.. The next several months can’t go fast enough to rid us of Odumass and Hitlery..

    We the People are sick and tired of ELITE POLITICIANS lining their pockets and ruining our economy and going along with Odumass and his Muslim buddies. Shame on all these politicians that have gone along with Odumass and his failed policies.

    Now, he is siding with the Muslim Terrorists again. Afraid to call them what they are: MUSLIM TERRORISTS.

      You’ll need to get Millertrumpbarrondrumpf nominated first. The delegates have been cut lose to follow their best judgment in voting. If the Republicans care about this country they’ll throw Miller under a Cleveland bus.

    Isn’t it refreshing to know that Shitlery’s e-mails haven’t been destroyed, but are alive and well. How nice of Russia to preserve them for us. They are better Americans than Hillary and her team of merry muslims.

    Considering Russia has been hacking HRC for quite some time now they probably got access to the DNC network through Hillerys home server as I am sure she comuicated with the DNC through it regularly while it was running. That would be hysterical if that’s what happened. Since we know she thinks she is above the law and can do anything she wants without repercussion.
