Expert: WikiLeaks isn't going away
WikiLeaks is likely to roil the presidential campaign with repeated bombshell dumps of sensitive emails and other embarrassing hacked material — possibly including Hillary Clinton’s own emails — keeping the site at the center of a campaign with global ramifications, according to internet security experts.
Hemanshu Nigam, founder of online security firm SSP Blue, which has advised the White House and major corporations, said WikiLeaks’ capability to mask the sources of leaks will make it an irresistible vessel for those looking to sway the race.
“I do think you’re going to see an uptick in the releases, and part of that is getting more information from people who have an interest in the outcome,” Nigam said. “This isn’t going away. You’ve got to be an idiot if you’re running a political campaign and you’re not assuming that at some point your emails are going to be public.”
On its website, WikiLeaks cryptically called Friday’s release of almost 20,000 DNC emails “part one of our new Hillary Leaks series.”......To Read More....
My Take - If you've been following this thing you know the Democrats are blaming the Russians, and Putin specifically, claiming he's doing this to help Trump. Okay ..... maybe he's involved....maybe the Russians are involved....but my question is - why would they do it to support Trump?
As one intelligence expert stated about Hillary's e-mail disaster....he'd have no respect for any intelligence service that didn't hack her e-mail server. That's their job....that's what they do.....and they're all really good at it.....especially if you're stupid!
Which brings me back to my original point. Who do you really think Putin would rather be dealing with? Trump, who presumably be far more difficult, or Hillary who has already demonstrated she can be read like a book, and is playing checkers while Putin is playing chess....and she's not very good at checkers.
It's also clear he must have known everything she was planning or doing as Secretary of State. Has there ever been anyone that incompetent or that stupid in that job? Well.....maybe Kerry.... and although he may be an idiot....... his e-mails aren't being compromised.
