John Podesta says Hillary Clinton private email server 'insane’ in WikiLeaks docs


It’s not often I agree with an immoral, progressive, anti-Catholic, religious Trojan horse proponent like John Podesta, but at least the man knows a special kind of crazy when he sees it, and recognizes the seriousness of it. If only her fawning supporters had as much insight into a serious thing like this.

*"Do we actually know who told Hillary she could use a private email? And has that person been drawn and quartered?

Like whole thing is … insane.”*


Your opinion of whether it was insane or not would be based on what you think the intentions were for setting it up, and the chances of it being detected.


No matter what the intentions were, the chances of it being detected were probably close to 100%, at least by foreign agencies. By the American people, certainly less so.


From a purely business point of view and from an IT Security point of view, there is ZERO reason to set a personal email server for email in an enterprise.

If anyone does that in the corporate world, they will be breaking a number of Sarbanes Oxley and ISO regulations, let alone corporate retention policies.

Hillary’s email server broke ever known rule & best practice in the IT Security profession.


This was such a cover up going all the way to the top! The FBI did a rotten investigation!


Are those things still in effect? I don’t think at the place I worked anyone knew what they were, except to prevent what Enron and others had been doing.


Probably the Soviets made a deal with Trump over the Baltic States, Ukraine and M.E. to help him win the election. I mean in one of his tweets, Comrade Trump gave the go ahead for the Russians to commit espionge against the United States.

Cybercrime Links To Russian State Hackers

n 2015, there were over one million cyber-attacks on individuals and companies every day, and that is why even the strongest US response to the theft of the Democratic National Committee emails will do little to deter future state-sponsored attacks, cybersecurity experts say.

The sheer volume and increasing sophistication of network attacks provide plausible deniability to state-sponsored groups, like the APT 28 and APT 29 thought to be behind the DNC hack, says Christopher Porter, of cybersecurity company FireEye.

How Hackers Broke Into John Podesta and Colin Powell’s Gmail Accounts

The email, however, didn’t come from the internet giant. It was actually an attempt to hack into his personal account. In fact, the message came from a group of hackers that security researchers, as well as the US government, believe are spies working for the Russian government. At the time, however, Podesta didn’t know any of this, and he clicked on the malicious link contained in the email, giving hackers access to his account.

Months later, on October 9, WikiLeaks began publishing thousands of Podesta’s hacked emails. Almost everyone immediately pointed the finger at Russia, who is suspected of being behind a long and sophisticated hacking campaign that has the apparent goal of influencing the upcoming US elections. But there was no public evidence proving the same group that targeted the Democratic National Committee was behind the hack on Podesta—until now.


This is all the Clinton supporters have. Pivot away from the questions about the emails by blaming the Russians in hopes they can just make it to election day without ever having to answer. They never say they are fake or deny them, just pivot and not answer.

Anybody remember when wikileaks emails about Iraq came out during George W Bush’s term? Democrats took them as gospel truth, now when the emails are damaging to them its only blame it on the Russians.


This great insight of intelligence come from the same folks who told you… if you like your insurance you can keep it. …the Iranian payout wasn’t ransom…, Iran will not get a bomb… Iraq is a stable country … Sadam has weapons of mass destruction. Oh and Hillary didn’t mean to break the law,

You believe them?


And just when you thought you heard enough about the unindicted presidential candidate, along comes the foreign press with details you will not read here.

E-mail probe and the payoff.

Clinton headlined fundraiser for campaign group which gave $500,000 to wife of FBI boss who investigated her emails - and it’s closely linked to Hillary’s bid for power

Well me thinks the FBI boss was bought off cheap.
Hey look its in domestic as well


Something smells really fishy!!


Even the FBI can be bought. Nothing seems impossible with enough money


Who would have ever thought the FBI and DOJ could be politicized or bought?


Same folks who made the IRS an attack dog going after people who disagreed with this administration. The US is pretty much on its way to banana republic. Civilizations are hard to build and harder to maintain. Entropy only goes one way (if you don’t put work into it.) Enjoy the ride.


Don’t be silly, you’re starting to sound like Sara Palin and Mitt Romney, who both warned that Russia continued to be a global opponent to the US.

Remember how much they were mocked and laughed at by all the pundits and all the ‘right’ politicians at the time? Nothing to worry about, we’ve been assured Russia’s a has-been and no factor. You, Sara, and Mitt need to stop living in the past.


From a government point of view and Government IT security point of view there was Zero reason to set up a personal email sever. Particularly by a person who’s government related communications would likely be sensitive and subject to FOIA requests and document record keeping requirements. As a key decision maker, all correspondence related to government decisions are required to be kept. This person particularly, since they were not just responsible for FOIA, records retention and handling of classified/sensitive material personally— they were responsible for compliance by the entire department. Factor in this person also had significant potential for conflicts of interest which would certainly stress the need to document how decisions were made in light of questions which might come up about how decisions affected those interests.

So a deliberate decision to do this is only insane depending on what the goal of setting up the system was, and whether it would be likely to be achieved.


Now, now, the FBI said the unindicted presidential candidate didn’t mean to do anything wrong …so its OK. It only cost her half a million.


That is right. How could I have forgotten the IRS!!


Prive cybersecurity firms Eset, FireEye, Crowdstrike etc. have already determined the location based on the fact that Russian hackers inadvertly failed to encrypt Bitly account so their huge mistake to avoid spam traps, cybersecurity firms were able to trace the originating emails of the hacks back to Fancy Bear, ATP28, Sofacy - Kremlin operatives.


Well then I say the Kremlin did us a favor. However, I still think its an insider or former insider who has an ax to grind and left a false trail.
