Hillary Clinton 2011: ‘Hackers break into financial institutions, cell phone networks, and personal email accounts’

To be fair, we doubt Grandma even remembers saying this.

Finding this proper measure for the internet is critical because the qualities that make the internet a force for unprecedented progress – its openness, its leveling effect, its reach and speed – also enable wrongdoing on an unprecedented scale. Terrorists and extremist groups use the internet to recruit members, and plot and carry out attacks. Human traffickers use the internet to find and lure new victims into modern-day slavery. Child pornographers use the internet to exploit children. Hackers break into financial institutions, cell phone networks, and personal email accounts.

Good thing she was handling state secrets on personal email at that time, huh?

Even closer to the disclosure of the WikiLeaks State Department documents, Mrs. Clinton said in November 2010 that she had “directed that specific actions be taken at the State Department, in addition to new security safeguards at the Department of Defense and elsewhere to protect State Department information so that this kind of breach cannot and does not ever happen again.” It is not clear if these “actions” would have included any changes to her private server, which after all was not located “at the State Department,” but in her home in Chappaqua, New York.

Meanwhile, Obama cleverly tossed her under the bus today.

    Hackers do no such thing. They tremble in fear of Bathhouse Barry and his pink lines in the sand. They would never hack those dot gov Windows 98 machines that haven’t been updated in almost 20 years.
    Also hackers would never use the stolen information for blackmail purposes because black lives matter or something.
