Dems brace for bad news as FBI indicates ‘more than 100 party officials and groups’ have been hacked by Russians
The FBI has started briefing Congress on what it knows about the hack of the DNC emails, blaming Russia. While those Dems still feeding media hysteria that Trump committed treason by inviting disclosure of Hillary’s 33,000 deleted emails “if they have them” would regard this a good news, there was some absolutely terrible news for them. Eric Lichtbau and Eric Schmitt of the New York Times report:
A Russian cyberattack that targeted Democratic politicians was bigger than it first appeared and breached the private email accounts of more than 100 party officials and groups, officials with knowledge of the case said Wednesday.
The widening scope of the attack has prompted the F.B.I. to broaden its investigation, and agents have begun notifying a long list of Democratic officials that the Russians may have breached their personal accounts. (snip)
F.B.I. officials briefed staff members of House and Senate Intelligence Committees last week on the investigation into the theft of emails and documents from the Democratic National Committee.
As for Trump’s invitation to Russia:
The F.B.I. says it has no direct evidence that Mrs. Clinton’s private email server was hacked by the Russians or anyone else. But in June, the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said that intruders had tried, and that any successful intruders were probably far too skilled to leave evidence of their intrusion behind. Law enforcement officials said he had the Russians in mind.
As D.K. emailed me this morning:
Extremely unlikely that the bad guys didn’t also hack the private server Hillary used while at State. Why wouldn’t they? Kindness, indifference? Why?
I’d say the odds are pretty good the Russians have Hillary’s secret email stash. I am expecting a lot of surprises by Nov. 8.
