YES THERE WERE ATTEMPTS TO HACK THE ELECTION, BUT IT WAS NOT THE RUSSIANS, IT WAS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.
New reports indicate that the Indiana state electoral system endured thousands of hacking attempts this past election season, and none of them involved President Trump or the elusive Russian hackers.
In fact, the would-be hackers were a little closer to home. Specifically, the Department of Homeland Security under President Obama tried to hack the system. And this all happened while Mike Pence was still governor.
Speculation has been that states involved in fighting back against a federal takeover of the elections were those targeted by the administration.
Why is this not an outrage on the nightly news.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials tried to hack Indiana’s state electoral system with at least 14,800 “scans” or hits between Nov. 1, 2016, to Dec. 16, 2016, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.
The attacks are the second confirmed IT scanning assault by DHS officials against states that resisted then-President Barack Obama’s attempt to increase federal involvement in state and local election systems by designating them as “critical infrastructure” for national security.
Members of the National Association of Secretaries of State voted Saturday at their winter meeting to oppose the designation. They are asking President Donald Trump to overturn it.
Former Indiana Gov. Mike Pence was also Trump’s vice presidential-elect during much of the period covered by the DHS scans of the Indiana system.
In the waning days of his presidency, Obama pushed a “Russian hackers” conspiracy theory for attempting to influence the electoral process, saying “all Americans should be alarmed.”
They should be just as alarmed, if not more so, at this breach by the administration.
Also there are these reports from Indiana, Idaho, and Georgia.
This is perhaps the reason the establishment (both parties) are trying so hard to discredit Trump. Perhaps they are afraid of what he is going to find when he investigates election fraud, which he has publicly announced he intends to do.
