State Dept. WARNINGS About Email Security Were IGNORED by Clinton Office!
It just gets worse and worse for the Hildebeast as more revelations bubble up from the fetid cesspool of Clinton scandals. A State Department employee says her office completely ignored warnings about security on her private email account.
From Al Jazeeera (yes, that Al Jazeera):
State Department technology experts expressed security concerns that then–Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was using a private email service rather than the government’s fortified and monitored system, but those fears fell on deaf ears, a current employee on the department’s cybersecurity team told Al Jazeera America on Tuesday.
The employee, who spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of losing his job, said it was well known that Clinton’s emails were at greater risk of being hacked, intercepted or monitored, but the warnings were ignored.
“We tried,” the employee said. “We told people in her office that it wasn’t a good idea. They were so uninterested that I doubt the secretary was ever informed.”
Now, if this were a Republican, then they’d be pilloried for creating “the environment” in the office that allowed her minions to ignore the warnings. That’s exactly how they’re going after Chris Christie.
“That’s reason for serious concern because the State Department’s email system is presumably secured and monitored for threats to national security to a level that whatever Hillary Clinton was using that she set up herself likely is not,” said J. Alex Halderman, a University of Michigan cybersecurity expert whose most recent paper demonstrated how easily hacked and deceived certain airport body scanners are. “It’s possible she had some kind of special protection in place, but in the absence of any other information, I would be very worried.”
SO Hillary Clinton put our foreign policy intelligence risk just so that she could keep her emails, which are the property of the American public, from FOIA requests. And this moron wants to be president?
