According to the FBI, Hillary Clinton may have lost the presidential election due to a simple typo made by a contractor working for the DNC.

According to The New York Times, FBI officials were desperate to warn the DNC and Hillary about supposed Russian hackers attempting to hack the DNC computers in order to influence the outcome of the election.

What started as an information-gathering operation, intelligence officials believe, ultimately morphed into an effort to harm one candidate, Hillary Clinton, and tip the election to her opponent, Donald J. Trump,” The Times wrote.

Hillary Clinton could have lost the election due to a simple typo

Theweek.com reports:

 

The FBI was aware as early as September 2015 that at least one computer system belonging to the DNC had been compromised.

But when FBI agent Adrian Hawkins called the committee’s tech-support contractor, Yared Tamene, to inform him of the situation, Tamene did not return Hawkins’ calls because “I had no way of differentiating the call I just received from a prank call,” he wrote in a memo.

In the spring, a similar communication failure allowed the Russians access to all of John Podesta’s emails. Podesta, who was serving as the chairman of the Clinton campaign at the time, received a classic phishing email allegedly from Google telling him his Gmail password was compromised and that he ought to reset it:

Given how many emails Mr. Podesta received through this personal email account, several aides also had access to it, and one of them noticed the warning email, sending it to a computer technician to make sure it was legitimate before anyone clicked on the “change password” button.

“This is a legitimate email,” Charles Delavan, a Clinton campaign aide, replied to another of Mr. Podesta’s aides, who had noticed the alert. “John needs to change his password immediately.”

With another click, a decade of emails that Mr. Podesta maintained in his Gmail account — a total of about 60,000 — were unlocked for the Russian hackers. Mr. Delavan, in an interview, said that his bad advice was a result of a typo: He knew this was a phishing attack, as the campaign was getting dozens of them. He said he had meant to type that it was an “illegitimate” email, an error that he said has plagued him ever since.

Absolutely, the hack was done by their own and once discovered attempted to distract from the content by blaming the Russians. Communist use the same tricks over and over we should learn to expect what they will do. If they accuse, you can bet they are doing that very thing, everything is transverse and distract away from truth. They accuse us of racism because they are covering their racism.

ALERT ALERT

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
