The hacker known as Guccifer2.0 has struck another blow to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, releasing a spreadsheet with over 200 cell phone numbers of House Democrats, passwords (lots and lots of passwords), private emails, and even documents from Nancy Pelosi’s computer. He said it was in an effort to show the corruption behind the election process.
Have a little hacking for dinner, Dems
It’s time for new revelations now. All of you may have heard about the DCCC hack. As you see I wasn’t wasting my time! It was even easier than in the case of the DNC breach.
As you see the U.S. presidential elections are becoming a farce, a big political performance where the voters are far from playing the leading role. Everything is being settled behind the scenes as it was with Bernie Sanders.
I wonder what happened to the true democracy, to the equal opportunities, the things we love the United States for. The big money bags are fighting for power today. They are lying constantly and don’t keep their word. The MSM are producing tons of propaganda hiding the real stuff behind it. But I do believe that people have right to know what’s going on inside the election process in fact.
To make a long story short, here are some DCCC docs from their server. Make use of them.” Guccifer 2.0
The release has left Democrats scrambling to change passwords, cell numbers, and probably trying to find more secure servers for their emails. Ahem. Ya think?
Oh, and Guccifer thanked Nirali Amin for the passwords:
Twitter account suspended
Guccifer2’s Twitter account was suspended immediately, so journalists can’t “DM” him for more information, as he requested. But his wordpress blog is still up so far.

Who is Guccifer really?
Guccifer claims to be a Romanian by the name of Marcel Lazăr Lehel, 44. However, Guccifer – that one- was extradited to the United States earlier in 2016. And unless we’re allowing personal laptops into the prisons these days, something is fishy.
The Smoking Gun reported,
While “Guccifer 2.0” claims to be Romanian and an “unknown hacker with a laptop,” cybersecurity investigators have concluded that he is part of a Russian intelligence operation that has targeted the DNC, Hillary Clinton campaign staffers, and assorted Republicans, including John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Michele Bachmann.
At least one Twitter account still up under that name has Cyrillic letters and words, but that account is still active and Guccifer2 is not. The last entry under the account still up was in June.
Guccifer the Romanian was interviewed by NBC Dateline host Cynthia McFadden back in May. He told her that Hillary’s server was “not safe at all.” He claims to be the first one that discovered Hillary’s server was not protected, in particular with the information regarding Benghazi that should have been handled with “sensitivity,” to use Sidney Blumenthal’s words in an email he supposedly released.
There has to be more to this story. We’ll keep our eyes and ears open.
- Forget about waiting for the FBI, Guccifer has already hacked Clinton’s Email server
