Election Interference: These Two Nations Tried To Penetrate 2020 Presidential Campaigns

Written by Wes Walker on June 6, 2020

No, Hillary, it wasn’t Russia, either. In fact, one is a country she actually ENCOURAGED to hack us.

Or did we all forget that about one year ago, Hillary called upon America’s only REAL rival to penetrate Trump’s personal files.

The campaigns of President Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden have been targeted by Iranian and Chinese hackers, according to Google.

An Iranian group, known as APT 35, attacked Trump campaign staff through phishing attacks, according to Shane Huntley, director for Google’s Threat Analysis Group. He said a China-based group, known as APT 31, similarly attacked the Biden campaign.

There has been no sign that either campaign was compromised, Huntley stressed. Both campaigns have been alerted to the hacking attempts. Federal authorities were also notified.

“We can confirm that our Threat Analysis Group recently saw phishing attempts from a Chinese group targeting the personal email accounts of Biden campaign staff and an Iranian group targeting the personal email accounts of Trump campaign staff. We didn’t see evidence that these attempts were successful,” a Google spokesperson told the Washington Examiner.

Iran? You mean the country that Obama deliberately turned a blind eye to for all their criminal activity in his eagerness to get that deal signed? We haven’t forgotten about the Project Cassandra scandal already, have we?

And China? They’re hardly a disinterested party.

And here’s Hillary specifically CALLING for China to intervene in our elections. She thinks she’s being funny and just riffing off of ‘Russian help’ that she insists Trump benefitted from — despite evidence that Putin actually wanted HER to win — by asking for China’s help.

Here emails are in a different category, though, aren’t they? In her case, a court-ordered subpoena had been issued for her to provide her emails to law enforcement as part of a criminal investigation. She was unable to comply with that lawful order because 30,000 emails had gone ‘missing’ under mysterious circumstances.

If Hillary’s emails were already ‘lost’ as she suggested, they couldn’t have been hacked by Russia, now could they. But if someone had PREVIOUSLY hacked them, and happened to have the information missing from criminal investigation (wherever it might be found) it sure would be nice to have the rest of that information?

Trump used sarcasm and humor to remind the public that his political opponent, Hillary, was careless with State Secrets, accused of corruption, and refused to comply with a subpoena.

It’s sad that such basic trolling has to be explained to people, isn’t it?

Hillary, on the other hand, demanded information that — despite a long tradition of Presidents opening their tax returns — the public has no LAWFUL right to.

Here she is with Moscow Maddow.

MADDOW: I hereby tonight ask China —

CLINTON: That’s right. And not only that, China, if you’re listening, why don’t you get Trump’s tax returns. I’m sure our media would richly reward you.

Now according to the Mueller report, that is not conspiracy because it’s done right out in the open.

So, if after this hypothetical Democratic candidate says this on your show, within hours, all of a sudden, the IRS offices are bombarded with incredibly sophisticated cyber tools looking for Trump’s tax returns, and then extracts and them and then passes them to whatever the new WikiLeaks happens to be and they start being unraveled and disclosed — nothing wrong with that.

I mean, if you’re going let Russia get away with what they did and are still doing according to Christopher Wray, the current FBI director, who said that last week, they’re in our election systems. We’re worried about 2020, he said.
