Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta used his own name as his username and the word ‘p@ssw0rd’ as his password, which raises doubts he was targeted by a large-scale Russian hacking campaign as claimed.
Additionally, Podesta also lost his cell phone in 2015, according to his own emails released by Wikileaks, and it’s unlikely he took proper security measures to secure the data.
“I warn you, the Windows 8 system is VERY different from what we had back at the White House,” Podesta’s assistant Eryn Sepp told him in anemail containing his password. “Might require a tutorial.”
The emails reveal Podesta as lazy and inept when it comes to computers in general, meaning it didn’t require the resources of a foreign government like Russia to hack his emails, especially given how he handled government business over a free Gmail account.
This raises doubts that the “Russian hackers” theory promoted by the mainstream media is credible, but that theory is being promoted not because it’s a proven fact but because it gives the federal government “justification” to take control of the presidential election – and ensure Hillary wins – out of “fear” of “Russian hackers.”
But if Russian hackers didn’t target Podesta, then who did?
