While serving as Secretary of State for then-President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton eschewed laws and safety procedures by conducting highly classified, top-secret business using a non-secure server which was located in her home.
Clinton’s use of a private server subsequently kickstarted an investigation into possible criminal conduct, and plagued her throughout her 2016 campaign for the White House, as undecided voters largely viewed her behavior as reckless and unethical.
When faced with the possibility that a foreign country may have hacked into her private server and gained access to classified information, Clinton shrugged off the notion, adamantly denying such an event occurred.
Although the investigation, which was handled by now-disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok, failed to yield any criminal charges against Clinton, a new report indicates that her server was indeed hacked by Chinese hackers.
According to the report, hackers in China were able to access Clinton’s server and emails throughout the duration of her term as Secretary of State.
A Chinese company hacked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized private email server, according to a report.
Sources told the Daily Caller News Foundation that a Chinese-state owned firm located in the Washington, D.C., area had access to Clinton’s emails in real time courtesy of a code embedded in the New York-based server which then made copies of the emails, some of which contained classified information.
The name of the company has not be disclosed. “We do know the name of the company. There are indications there are other ‘cutouts’ that were involved. I would be in a lot of trouble if I gave you the name,” an unnamed former intelligence officer told the outlet.
During a House Judiciary Committee hearing last month, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, said the inspector general of the intelligence community found that most of the emails on Clinton’s server were sent to a “foreign entity” that was unrelated to Russia.
In that hearing, where former FBI agent Peter Strzok had been testifying, Gohmert also said intelligence community inspector general officials had informed Strok and other top bureau officials of an “anomaly” in found in Clinton’s server. But Strzok, who led the FBI investigation into Clinton’s emails, did not act on that information, Gohmert asserted.
