It was revealed Friday that not only were the Democratic National Committee’s computer networks breached by hackers, but also Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign’s computer networks as well.
Clinton’s campaign spokesman Nick Merrill ensured, “Our campaign computer system has been under review by outside cyber security experts. To date, they have found no evidence that our internal systems have been compromised.”
One of the things accessed by hackers was the campaign’s analytics data program – a program which allows the campaign to run voter analysis. Fortunately for the campaign, no social security numbers or credit card numbers were listed.
The Department of Justice is investigating whether these recent hacks into the computer systems of the DNC, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), and now Hillary Clinton’s campaign, have compromised national security.
In response, Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller said Friday that these hacks show that cyber security is “a problem wherever Hillary Clinton goes.” He added, “Hopefully this time there wasn’t classified or top secret information that puts American lives at risk.”
Russia is being blamed for these recent network breaches on Democratic organizations. The media and Hillary Clinton sympathizers have gone so far as to insinuate some kind of collusion between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump.
Both Trump and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange have denied any link with Russia. Trump called such speculation a “total deflection” in order to keep the focus off of what the emails revealed about the DNC’s behind-the-scenes operations to prop up Hillary and dispose of Bernie Sanders.
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper Saturday, Assange confirmed that there is yet more material related to Hillary Clinton to come.
Some are speculating as to whether Assange has the emails and documents most recently hacked from Hillary’s campaign computers. Whatever the case, Assange has suggested that he will release more Clinton material in strategically-time intervals.
