Seriously folks... Read this story and tell me, is there a snowballs chance in hell that any news network or newspaper would have sat on such a story if it were a republican running for office? If your answer is "yes", seek help immediately from the closest mental health facility in your area and please for Christ's sake... drink something else besides Kool-Aid 24/7.


Why Did NBC News Sit on Explosive Story About Clinton’s Alleged Hacked Email Server For Weeks?
by Chris White | 11:24 pm, May 4th, 2016


<Key Excerpt>


As you can see from the transcript, Lazar is openly admitting to hacking Clinton’s private e-mail account. The same private e-mail account where federal officials found over 2,000 e-mails that contained classified information, including at least 22 deemed to contain “Top Secret” information. That is pretty explosive information. To note, Clinton’s campaign has already fired back, in a statement saying “There is absolutely no basis to believe the claims made by this criminal from his prison cell.”


Now, this is where things get a little strange. As was noted earlier, NBC News says Lazar made these claims to McFadden during an interview in a Bucharest prison and we know Lazar was extradited to the United States on or about March 31, 2016. So, it stands to reason that McFadden conducted the interview before he was extradited to the U.S. which means NBC News was sitting on these explosive claims for more than one month. Which begs the question, why would a major news network sit on such an explosive allegation — especially when the claim directly relates to a presidential candidate and the biggest story the 2016 presidential election cycle?

Guccifer only hacked Blumenthal's AOL email account. In fact, most of his hacks were online AOL, Yahoo, Flickr or FB accounts. Hillary didn't have an online email account because she had her own server...and there's no evidence that it was hacked. This is not new news.

Both NBC News and Hillary Clinton are very part of the "establishment", the status quo.

The duty of NBC News is to protect the status quo.

Typical behavior for MSM, as far as I'm concerned. Sharyl Attkisson made it obvious that CBS does pretty much the same thing.

Oh, my god. A mainstream media source actually checking facts before reporting something bizarre.

What is this country coming to.

The National Enquirer certainly would never have done this.

Nor would FOXNews!

NBC News has the primary duty to make money.

Why is the FBI dragging their feet on this Clinton deal? There's your scandal.

This is exactly what is wrong with "news" these days.

There was a day when networks ensured that the News Departments were not part of the profit centers.

Now, because of the kinds of thoughts seen here, "News Departments" are not about news...but about profit!

This should disgust anyone with a brain.

That is not exactly "explosive."

Explosive is Trump having sex with an underage prostitute. But, no MSM outlet is touching that story. Get a life.

But Guccifer may have gotten to her that way.
Sid Blumenthal was emailing with Hillary to her own private server that she used for all her State Department business and he did not work for the State Department.
He shouldn't have been contacting them and them him.
That was a no-no and just one of the offenses Hillary is guilty of.

There'sno proof he hacked Hillary's account. He would have posted it online, like he did the other hacks, if he had.

He did hack a lot of people's accounts. From the Smoking Gun, almost three years ago:


"As reported here in March, Powell’s e-mail and Facebook accounts were illegally accessed by “Guccifer,” the hacker who has spent the last eight months breaking into the online accounts of Clinton, Bush, and Obama administration officials; former FBI agents; defense contractors; Bush family members and friends

;
and assorted public figures, including journalist Carl Bernstein, author Candace Bushnell, and John Doerr, the billionaire venture capitalist.

Immediately after the Powell hacks, “Guccifer” sent some of the pilfered e-mails and photos to a variety of news outlets (and the anti-secrecy site cryptome.org, which posted the material)."

Anyone remember this of SOS who was hacked, and the lil broo-haha...?



Hacker Forces Colin Powell To Deny Affair


Ex-Secretary of State told diplomat to delete e-mails

http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/colin-powell-guccifer-email-hack-594321#lightbox-popup-1

AUGUST 1--As a notorious hacker seeks to distribute “very personal” e-mails sent to Colin Powell by a female Romanian diplomat, the retired general is denying that he engaged in an extramarital affair with the woman while he served as Secretary of State, though he recently advised her to delete all their online exchanges, The Smoking Gun has learned.


In a statement addressing his relationship with Corina Cretu, a member of the European Parliament who previously held a series of senior posts in the Romanian government, Powell, 76, wrote that he has known Cretu for about 10 years, having first met her

“when I was the Secretary of State and she was an assistant to the President of Romania. We occasionally attended the same diplomatic and international meetings.”
