Hillary Clinton's lawyer may have allowed hackers to obtain all of the former secretary of state's emails by reviewing the contents of her private server on a laptop tied to Chinese cyberspies, a House Republican charged on Friday.

Heather Samuelson was one of the Clinton aides who sifted through the private email server used during Clinton's tenure at the State Department, and helped decide which would be designated as personal messages and which were work-related. That's when the potential Chinese hacks may have taken place, because she used two laptops made by Lenovo, a company with ties to the Chinese government that has sold laptops for years with malware pre-installed on the computer.



State Department officials have been banned from using Lenovos since 2006. In 2015, the company admitted to installing a program called "Superfish" on 43 different computer models, "specifically the models used by Heather Samuelson for reviewing classified emails," as Goodlatte emphasized.

Yet......Donald doesn't have the temperament or judgement to be POTUS. We really live in an upside down world.

I thought Comey said that her emails weren't hacked?

No. He said there was no evidence or they found no evidence. I bet they didn't look too hard.

Damned Lenovos. I had to become "Lenovo Certified" for work right before we decided that we would never deploy another one.

The spyware was listed as altering ads and browsing. Never heard any proof of it being anything more than that.

From the article.

/Snip
The company has been preloading Superfish, a "visual search" tool that includes adware that fakes the encryption certificates for every HTTPS-protected site you visit, on its PCs since at least the middle of 2014. Essentially, the software conducts a man-in-the-middle attack to fill the websites you visit with ads, and leaves you vulnerable to hackers in its wake.

He said that there was no confirmation that they has been hacked. He lied.

There are at least two known hackers who have accessed that server; Guccifer, and Wikileaks.

Along with whomever else, state parties or independents, who have also hacked that server. Along with the backup cloud server.

Wikileaks doesn't hack per se. They get fed info from those who do.

There is some delusion on our part working here.

Comey lied because he could lie and he knew there would never be any repurcussions for lying.

Comey is under no obligation to tell us anything. What he does tell us is what has been planned and agreed upon. Nothing of substance will ever be given to the public.

Comey is from the "admit nothing, deny everything, demand proof, obfuscate" school.

We are witnessing political operations by an oligarchy exercising power through corruption for self-gain and consolidatiion of power.

my vote is for lamp posts, trees, and plenty of rope, with a few Esso stations thrown in for good measure.
