WOW! ‘Foreign Government’ Hacked Obama’s Campaign – He Didn’t Do A Damn Thing About It

On February 16th, the office of special counsel Robert Mueller announced that a grand jury indicted 13 Russian nationals, along with 3 Russian entities, accused of “supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump … and disparaging Hillary Clinton.”

Reports of Russian meddling insensed the Democrats and mainstream media talking heads. These are the same people who were outraged to learn in 2009 that a ‘foreign’ government’ hacked the Obama campaign. Remember? No? Neither do we.

Jordan Schachtel of Conservative Review reports:

…Many may not recall, but the Obama campaign was actually hacked by a foreign actor. A foreign government (or multiple countries) hacked into the Obama campaign and stole troves of private information.

President Obama confirmed the shocking news in a May 2009 cybersecurity speech.

“What isn’t widely known is that during the general election hackers managed to penetrate our computer systems,” President Obama revealed. […]

The former president did not attribute the attack to a particular country. However, later in the speech, he did call attention to Russia’s cyber sophistication, while leaving out any mention of China’s equally advanced cyber program.

Yet the sitting president appeared uninterested in combating these emerging threats. Instead, he seemed more inclined to appease these nations. When it came to Russia, Obama was focused on promising “more flexibility” during his second term and presenting an actual reset button to the Kremlin.

This week, NBC News reported U.S. intelligence agencies possessed “substantial evidence” that Russia “compromised” electoral systems in 7 states during the 2016 presidential election.

NBC News also reported the Obama administration failed to notify the states about Russia’s hacking activities.

Department of Homeland Security spokesperson, Tyler Q. Houlton, denied NBC News’ report.
