The 800-pound gorilla in the room for months now has been the question of Hillary Clinton’s emails during her tenure as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State. Did she engage in a cover-up of sending sensitive classified information via her own home brewed email server or not? It’s widely been understood that the world is going to have to wait until the FBI completes it’s criminal investigation, but even then, it’s not a done deal.
As most political junkies are already aware, even if the FBI forwards their investigation up the chain of command presenting solid and verified evidence of criminal actions, Barack Obama’s Department of Justice very well could have the neat little package that the investigation arrived in to be sent to the same warehouse made famous in the closing scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark. But in a breaking and exclusive report from Fox News reporters Catherine Herridge and Pamela K. Browne on May 4, 2016, we may not have to wait for the Feds after all.
As reported, the Romanian internet hacker known by his nom de hacker of Guccifer, a portmanteau of Gucci and Lucifer, has admitted to the two correspondents that he’s already breached Clinton’s private email server. And not just once, but repeatedly.
With his real name being Marcel Lehel Lazar, Guccifer is currently in an Alexandria, Virginia hoosegow after his native Romania extradited him to the United States on a number of cyber-crimes. Interestingly enough, it was the very same two Fox newshounds that reported almost a month ago that Guccifer/Lazar was tied to the Hillary Clinton investigation. As Herridge and Browne cited at the time, an intelligence source close to the case who spoke on grounds of anonymity was quoted that the world famous hacker’s extradition to America was “not a coincidence.”
According to the reporters, their info was initially from a 30 minute face-to-face interview with Lazar, then an undisclosed number of recorded phone calls. According to Lazar, he was able to “access the server – and provided extensive details about how he did it and what he found.”
In what may be the cause of some squirming and maybe even phone calls to their lawyers, the 44-year-old Guccifer also stated that when he broke into Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal’s AOL account, he used it as “a stepping stone” to Clinton’s account. He did admit that he found the slew of emails “not interest[ing]” to him at the time.
As the hacker described his new findings, “For me, it was not like the Hillary Clinton server, it was like an email server she and others were using with political voting stuff.” Unfortunately for Clinton, Blumenthal was never an employee of the federal government nor was he ever cleared to have access to anything classified, hence, anyone making him privy to classified material would be a punishable federal crime.
In the process of mining data from Blumenthal’s account, Lazar said he came across evidence that “others” were also on Hillary Clinton’s private and possibly illegal server. “As far as I remember, yes, there were … up to 10, like, IPs from other parts of the world,” Lazar said.
In what may be another Depends-inducing revalation, when asked what he would say to those skeptical of his claims, Lazar plainly stated, “the evidence you can find in the Guccifer archives as far as I can remember.” Guccifer/Lazar did speak extensively about Blumenthal’s account, noting his emails were “interesting” and had information about “the Middle East and what they were doing there.”
