The Romanian hacker, “Guccifer,” who first exposed Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, was extradited to the United States in March. Marcel Lehel Lazar (that’s his real name) was believed to have posted emails that were sent to then-Secretary of State Clinton on the internet, including correspondence from close Clinton advisor Sidney Blumenthal. Lazar was brought to the United States, just as reports indicate that the FBI investigation into Clinton’s email server is in in full swing...

Lazar made his initial appearance in federal court last week. He is charged with wire fraud, cyberstalking, identify theft, unauthorized access to computers and obstruction of justice.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that there is “not even the remotest chance” she will be arrested over her use of a private email server, and said that it’s only a “fantasy” for Republicans.

Clinton talked about the email dustup during an interview with Matt Lauer which aired Friday morning on NBC’s Today. The interview was held at a Bronx diner, where Clinton is campaigning in the New York Democratic presidential primary.

Looks like Obama is going to punish this guy hard for exposing the queen.

Here's a clue: if Hillary had never set up a server like that in the first place then it wouldn't have been able to get hacked.

This hacker, Guccifer was quite prolific...and all he used was a desktop computer, a cell phone, an internet connection and lots of patience. But he didn't hack Clinton's emails....he hacked Sydney Blumenthal's emails. Fortunately, all Blumenthal sent Hillary were articles that he found online.


"...Guccifer later hacked Colin Powell's website and accessed years' worth of his correspondence from another AOL account. The correspondence included personal financial information as well as e-mails to George Tenet, Richard Armitage, and John Negroponte.[4]

The hacker also targeted U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski, a senior UN Official, members of the Rockefeller family, former FBI and Secret Service agents,[5] as well as the brother of Barbara Bush, CBS sportscaster Jim Nantz, and former Miss Maine Patricia Legere.[6]

On March 20, 2013, USA Today reported that Guccifer had successfully hacked the e-mail account of former aide to president Bill Clinton, Sidney Blumenthal.[7] He distributed private memos sent to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton involving recent events in Libya, including the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack.[8] Before distributing the memos, he copied and pasted the text into his own new documents, then reformatted them with pink backgrounds and Comic Sans font.[8] The hacker's IP address was traced to Russia, however there was no certainty as to whether this was his actual location or whether he had used a proxy to hide his true location.

In early May 2013, Guccifer hacked into online accounts owned by two members of the Council on Foreign Relations, as well as accounts owned by Adam Posen and his wife and another owned by a former Federal Reserve Board official.[9]..."​

Her emails didn't get hacked.

Her emails didn't get hacked.

"I have no doubt in my mind that this thing was penetrated by multiple foreign powers, to assume otherwise is to put blinders on,” said Bob Gourley, the chief technology officer at the Defense Intelligence Agency

As was previously reported here, there is real concern for the security of Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Ari Fleischer, former Presidential Press Secretary, believes that her emails were likely in the hands of foreign powers.

Now, that belief seems to have been confirmed. Western Journalism reports:

The “consumer grade” company that hosted Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email domain was hacked in 2010. Furthermore, its data was rerouted to Ukraine, according to a report.

Clinton’s problems have been compounded by the fact that Network Solutions was hacked in 2010, when Clinton was using its services. “We have received reports that Network Solutions customers are seeing malicious code added to their websites, and we are really sorry for this experience,” a company spokesperson said at the time.

Canadian-based domain registration expert Bill Sweetman told The Blaze it was a grave mistake for Clinton to conduct her business in this matter. “If you’re someone that is concerned about security of your data, you don’t go and register your domain name with a consumer-oriented registrar like Network Solutions or GoDaddy,” Sweetman said.

Yup, pretty much.

Nothing can ever touch the Clinton dynasty.

It is believed that Guccifier may have the e mails available to him that show many connections between "dots" that Hillary erased or has denied exist, particularly with Sid Blumenthal who has no known valid clearance to view classified documents. In addition, Blumenthal was on the payroll of the Clinton Foundation while he was also employed by The Brock Group to get contracts in Libya and other middle eastern governments.

He is suspected to be the point man for foreign governments to get favors for paying to listen to Bill Clinton's speeches in exchange for a contribution to the Clinton Foundation. Good things happen when you pay to listen to good people's speeches.

Sid had direct "Answer that. Sid is calling!" access to Hillary when she was Sec of State. Unfortunately, the Benghazi embassy did not have such access and paid with their lives.

I wonder if Bob Gourley believed "curveball", too. Or...maybe he pretended he was an FBI agent so he could torture Gitmo detainees. Either way, he doesn't have any credibility in this case...mainly because he isn't employed with the DIA anymore and doesn't have access to classified information...or Hillary's emails...and isn't involved in the FBI investigation.

I don't know how that pertains to Hillary's emails....since she didn't have a "web site" with Network Solutions and she didn't use her email to make online purchases.

If you have some special knowledge that others have missed, the FBI would love to hear from you.

If you have evidence they were....I'm sure you would've provided it by now.

So which is worse for Hillary ? Honestly?

Being indicted or getting away with multiple felonies that would land your average American citizen in prison for decades?
