FBI Confirms Investigation Of Clinton "Cyber Intrusion" As Podesta Goes On The Offensive

Tyler Durden's picture

Earlier today the FBI confirmed that they're in the process of reviewing the Podesta email hack.  Per Politico, an FBI spokesman delivered the following generalized comments regarding the recent WikiLeaks revelations but clearly stopped short of tying the leaks to "senior-level Russian officials" as the Clinton campaign has done on numerous occasions.

"The FBI is aware of media reporting on cyber intrusions involving multiple political entities, and is working to determine the accuracy, nature and scope of these matters.  The cyber threat environment continues to evolve as cyber actors target all sectors and their data. The FBI takes seriously any allegations of intrusions, and we will continue to hold accountable those who pose a threat in cyberspace."

The FBI even posted the following helpful guide on how to avoid being hacked yourself.  Though we suspect this is less of an issue for those of us who haven't committed perjury before Congress, ignored a subpeona by deleting federal records and/or collected billions of dollars as part of a massive pay-to-play scandal involving numerous foreign countries and their leaders.

 

Podesta also confirmed that he had been in touch with the FBI on Sunday night but went on to cite "law enforcement authorities" saying that the investigation was part of an "ongoing investigation of hacking into democratic organizations by Russian intelligence."

"I was in touch with the FBI on Sunday. They confirmed that they are investigating the criminal hack of my email, and we are of course, fully cooperating in that investigation.  We also learned today from law enforcement authorities that that investigation is part of the ongoing investigation of hacking into democratic organizations by Russian intelligence."

Meanwhile, Podesta decided to go on the offensive by hosting a session with the press earlier today aboard Air Force Hillary.  Unlike the FBI's statement, Podesta played a little more loose with the "facts" by directly pinning the hacking of his email on Russian officials while asserting that Trump must have had advance notice from Assange on when the emails would be released.

"It's a reasonable conclusion that... the Trump campaign had advanced warning about what Assange was going to do."

Podesta continued by questioning the timing of the release saying "it's an awfully curious coincidence that it happened virtually as soon as the water temperature was moving to a boil."

Frankly, we would be a little more hesitant to talk about "curious coincidences" given the numerous "plumes of smoke" circling the Clinton campaign.

 

Meanwhile, at least 1 reporter in the press pool seemed to object to the blatant rumor mongering by stating that "actually some people think it's the other way around that these emails would have been more damaging if they had not been covered up" for so long.  While a great point, we're certain it won't be long before this member of the press decides to resign from Hillary's traveling press pool and instead pursue other interests at a local tv station in South Dakota.

Too bad the FBI won't be able to investigate the criminal activities of the Clintons or Podestas.  They will be too busy looking for a way to pin the Wikileaks hack on Russia. 

What the fuck happened to this country?  The entire Dem apparatus should be in prison.

It's a reasonable conclusion that you are a treasonous piece of shit Podesta.

this guy is nuts. WikiLeaks was threatening release before the pussygate tape was released, so let's talk about whose water was boiling first. And how long were the Trump tapes sitting on deck? weeks, months, years? give me a F break. This guy, and the rest of his cohorts inside the government and campaign need to sit and rot in jail.

Great comedy with Jonathan Winters

Pete Whittaker: Ask them if they're Russians!
Walt Whittaker: Peter, be quiet.
Lieutenant Rozanov: [thick Russian accent] Very clever little boy. Very, very clever, to see that my friend and I are foreigners here, but of course not Russian, naturally. What would the Russians be doing on United States of America island, with so many animosities and hatreds between these two countries? It is too funny an idea, is it not? No, we... we are of course... Norveegans.
Walt Whittaker: Norweigans?
Lieutenant Rozanov: [nods] On a small training exercise for the Nyaato countries...
Alexei Kolchin: NATO!
Lieutenant Rozanov: Nay-toe countries, of course, yes. Ah, to reach place of power motorboats it is necessary to make borrowings of automobile, for a short time only, sir.
Walt Whittaker: Uh... uh... may, may I ask you something, please?
Lieutenant Rozanov: Yes, of course.
Walt Whittaker: Are, are there nine of you out there, and are you all Russians with machine guns, and does one of you look like Uncle Ha... I meant, look like a wrestler?
Lieutenant Rozanov: [beat] Unnnnnnngh... I am sorry to, uh, comply with your statement, but misfortunately, all of the answers to these questions are... yes.

 "ongoing investigation of hacking into democratic organizations by Russian intelligence."

WTF are “democratic organizations”?
Is that some kind of code for the Democrat Party... the wolf in sheep’s clothing?

There’s nothing democratic about the Democrat Party.

"It's a reasonable conclusion that... the Trump campaign had advanced warning about what Assange was going to do."

Ouch! Gotcha, Trump!
Oh, wait. Didn’t Julian have at least one press conference, a tenth Wiki Leaks Anniversary Party and several TV interviews where he told THE WHOLE FUCKING WORLD what he had planned?

VOTE TRUMP
VOTE OFTEN

All they ever do is try to shoot the messenger when it is the message that needs to be addressed. Regarding the messenger, as someone famously once  said "What difference does it make"?

layman_please's picture

let me get this straight? somebody found the destroyed evidence that the FBI was missing and now the FBI is going after the person who found it?

MalteseFalcon's picture

Sorry Podesta, it doesn't matter how you spin this.

More emails are coming.

It not going to stop.

Chinese water torture.

Should the Democrats generate enough voter fraud for Hillary to win, she'll have zero credibility or authority with a wide majority of Americans.

philipat's picture

Hmmm,.....Yes, that sounds about right. But unless the emails come out anyway, it would never go to trial because then the FBI would have to release the discovered mails during disclosure, which would, of course, also beg the question of why they would not then reopen the case against Her Majesty? Seems like a cross between a soap opera and a Banana Rebublic more every day...

"[...] hacking into democratic organizations by Russian intelligence."

Plainly a typo. That should have been "Democratic organizations", which are something entirely different.

Slomotrainwreck's picture

It's not a "Hack". It's Copying insecure government documents. Dontcha think that the Government of the US would have a "Safe Place"? But, no. Wah, wah wah, "somebody copied my stuff. I'm so angry. It's just not fair"

John_Coltrane's picture

That's what happens when a moron like Hillary doesn't even have a password on her server (too hard to remember).  No password, no encryption, any passerby with a grudge can clone your entire HD!  But Cankes woudn't have any disgruntled underlings who she had just cussed out, would she?  hint to the computer illiterate, you can't externally "hack" a computer properly protected.  Someone needs physical access and/or knowledge of the pass phrase and that's why when these leaks are actaully traced its always an insider.  But then the insider may widely disseminate the cloned information, of course!

Crash Overide's picture

Mr. Podesta I think it's a reasonable assumption that you are a slimey piece of shit and no matter what you do from this point on, you will be further exposed for the criminal fraud you are.

You knowingly support and run cover for the biggest piece of shit lier there ever was... Hillary Clinton.

You have been hacked and you will be held accountable for what you have done.

This won't stop, it goes deeper, much more to come, choose your words wisely.

Anything at all looks "Amazing" to the stupid and the incompetent. Here we have a fine example of the species: "Intelligent, Yet Idiot". Everything must be a conspiracy to this idiot because that's all what he knows, and is incompetent at, and is exposing with every blab of his running gob. 

These people, like Podesta, high-level, know how the machinery works, access to the best advice for when they don't, yet display a high level stupidity, childish naivity even, on simple things like running their crooked enterprises by using Google, iCloud, Secret Homecooked Servers, Keeping mails forever, Qouting every previous mail in a chain, .... didn't they like have a seminar or something on OPSEC, and the one on how to handle legal problems from work? Did they not even THINK for even one second that someone would come after them, eventually?  

Come ON. The light is on, but the house is empty! This is what "The Elite" could buy for their money!? Jesus!!

How are they (FBI) going to be able to do anything?  By the time they get done giving immunity to everyone involved there will be no one left to actually jail.

As election day gets ever closer we more and more realize WHY they fear Trump so much. If he starts pulling the thread on this one, God only knows how far it could go.

fx's picture

rest assured, the FBI will at least really try to investigate seriously who exposed this stuff. As opposed to the FBI's non-investigation farce into shillary's crimes. And of course, the leaked stuff itself will not be investigated at all. Nothing to see here, so stfu you damn standard rednecks, will ya please!

Space Ghost's picture

The thing is, the gen public is allowing the election to conduct a peaceful change in the country. 

 

Emails are pissing off more and more rednecks and veterans and military people each day, and remember these are the guys with the guns. 

 

The good thing about the email releases, even though that they wont prosecute the offendors, is that its a weapon that Trump can use to make the general public completely oppose and never accept a clinton or establishment victory. and he's already doing that in his rallies.

Well, at least we know the hackers are safe from prosecution. Based on what I've seen lately from them, the FBI couldn't investigate their way out of a paper bag.
