Former DHS Boss Jeh Johnson: The 2016 Election Was Not Hacked
AP reported on September 22nd that the Department of Homeland Security told election officials of 21 states that hackers targeted their systems last year.
The liberals came unhinged.
The government didn’t say who was behind the hacks or what the hackers were looking for, however; the election officials said ‘they believe the attempts could be linked to Russia’.
Whatever that means.
Former head of Department of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson told lawmakers Thursday that there is no evidence showing cyber-attacks affected voting systems in the 2016 election.
Via The Washington Examiner:
“The integrity of our election outcomes on a national level dances on the head of a pin,” he told an election security task force assembled by congressional Democrats. “If writers of the TV series ‘House of Cards’ can figure that out, then a lot of other people can do the same.”
“I know of no evidence that last year ballots were altered or votes were suppressed through a cyberattack, but last year’s experience exposed certain cyber vulnerabilities in our election infrastructure,” Johnson told the panel.
What we do know is that Obama’s DHS tried to hack into Indiana’s and Georgia’s electoral systems while Jeh Johnson was in charge.
From The Daily Caller:
Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson, the incoming president of the association, told TheDCNF Tuesday that, “we know that between November 1 and December 16 we were scanned with about 14,800 scans, nearly 15,000 different times.”
The state’s IT team traced the intruder to a DHS computer’s IP address. The same DHS unit attempted 10 times in 2016 to hack into the Georgia electoral system.
Federal officials are barred under DHS rules from trying to penetrate a state system without the express approval of the state. Neither Georgia nor Indiana approved the DHS scanning attempts.
The ‘election hacking’ narrative is constantly pushed by Dems, Never Trumpers and the fake news media in order to distract from the real crimes which were committed by Obama, Hillary, Susan Rice et al.
Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election because Americans didn’t want the Clintons in the White House again. The DNC servers weren’t hacked either. The Podesta emails were leaked by an insider which of course will further humiliate Hillary Clinton once the truth comes out.
