Rosenstein Confirms DNC Server Was Not Hacked – Emails Were Obtained Through “Spear Phishing” Scam

MUELLER INDICTS 12 RUSSIAN MILITARY OFFICERS FOR CONSPIRING TO INTERFERE WITH US ELECTIONS–

Another junk indictment?

This comes a day before President Trump is to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein confirmed that the DNC server was never actually hacked.

Rather, the emails were obtained through a “spear phishing” email scam which THOUSANDS of others, including Republicans fell for.

“The defendants used two techniques to steal information. First they used a scheme known as spear phishing, which involves sending misleading emails and tricking the users of disclosing their passwords and security information,” Rosenstein said.

“Secondly, the defendants hacked into computer networks and installed malicious software and allowed them to spy on users,” Rosenstein continued.

The computer networks Rosenstein was referring to was a Congressional campaign, not the DNC server.

“They also hacked into the networks of a Congressional campaign and a national political committee,” Rosenstein continued.

No wonder why they shut down the Imran Awan case last week…just in time to blame the Russians.
