The Democrats’ big election lie just blew up in their faces
Democrats promote the questionable claims about Russian election hacking to motivate their voters ahead of the 2018 midterms.
The Democrat National Committee ran to the FBI with a new story about election hacking.
But the Democrats’ big lie about election hacking just blew up in their faces.
Democrats claimed hackers tried to infiltrate their voter database.
This was more hysteria to try to whip up their voters into a frenzy before the November elections.
However, it was more fake news.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
In a statement early Wednesday, Bob Lord, the DNC’s chief information security officer, said the DNC and its partners who reported the site “now believe it was built by a third party as part of a simulated phishing test.”
The test mimicked attributes of a real attack on the committee’s voter database but wasn’t authorized by the DNC, Mr. Lord said.
“There are constant attempts to hack the DNC and our Democratic infrastructure, and while we are extremely relieved that this wasn’t an attempted intrusion by a foreign adversary, this incident is further proof that we need to continue to be vigilant in the light of potential attacks,” Mr. Lord said…
…The DNC didn’t immediately say how it determined the incident was a test or who had conducted the test.
Robert Mueller indicted 12 Russians for hacking the DNC in 2016.
To date, the government has made no evidence public to back up this claim.
Democrats want to seize on the hysteria surrounding alleged Russian election hacking to put the GOP on defense.
Democrats believe stories about Russian hacking divide Republican candidates from Donald Trump and will in turn depress GOP voting turnout.
