Rosenstein: DNC Server Was Not Hacked by Russia, Leak Was Podesta’s Fault
Rod Rosenstein even confirmed that the DNC server was never actually hacked
US special counsel Robert Mueller has filed charges against 'Russian hackers' allegedly behind cyber attacks against the Democratic National Committee, except there's is a small problem...they're not hackers.
US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the announcement during a Justice Department press conference while Trump was on his UK visit.
Another phony indictment?
If so, its cleverly announced just before the day before President Trump to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein even confirmed that the DNC server was never actually hacked.
the emails were obtained through a “spear phishing” email scam which THOUSANDS of others, including Republicans fell for.
"The Internet allows foreign adversaries to attack America in new and unexpected ways. Free and fair elections are hard-fought and contentious," Rosenstein said. "There will always be adversaries who work to exacerbate domestic differences and try to confuse, divide, and conquer us."
Gateway Pundit reports: Rosenstein just confirmed emails obtained through “spearfishing” email scam, which thousands of people including Republicans fell for.
No wonder the DNC server was never examined by FBI.
It was never actually hacked. This was a monumental lie by the Clinton campaign
“The defendants used two techniques to steal information. First they used a scheme known as spear phishing, which involves sending misleading emails and tricking the users of disclosing their passwords and security information,” Rosenstein said.
“Secondly, the defendants hacked into computer networks and installed malicious software and allowed them to spy on users,” Rosenstein continued.
The computer networks Rosenstein was referring to was a Congressional campaign, not the DNC server.
“They also hacked into the networks of a Congressional campaign and a national political committee,” Rosenstein continued.
No wonder why they shut down the Imran Awan case last week…just in time to blame the Russians.
The FBI never were able to inspect the DNC servers but Rod Rosenstein was pretty confident about these facts today anyway.
According to GatewayPundit: Rosenstein accused Russians of stealing usernames and passwords of volunteers in Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign, including its chairman John Podesta.
It wasn’t that difficult for the “Russians” to hack spear-phish John Podesta’s computer.
Podesta’s password was “p@ssw0rd”… It wasn’t that hard.
As Julian Assange pointed out — Barron Trump could have figured it out.
Spear-phishing is a tactic to get access into a person’s computer or server.
Spear-phishing is the fraudulent practice of sending emails ostensibly from a known or trusted sender in order to induce targeted individuals to reveal confidential information.
