Guccifer says I hacked into Hillary Clinton’s server many times and it was easy
Hillary Clinton’ had been blowing trumpets about the security of her email server while she was secretary of State. However, her claims took a big bashing today when a Romanian hacker known as Guccifer told Fox News that he repeatedly hacked her email server in 2013 and accessed her mails.
“For me, it was easy … easy for me, for everybody,” Marcel Lehel Lazar, who goes by the moniker “Guccifer,” told Fox News from a Virginia jail where he is being held.
Lazar told Fox News that he was not interested in the contents of her emails. “I was not paying attention. For me, it was not like the Hillary Clinton server, it was like an email server she and others were using with political voting stuff,” he said.
Lazar was extradited to the U.S. on cyber-hacking charges of Clinton, General Colin Powell, and a member of the Bush family, told Fox News that he first hacked the account of Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton. Once inside, Lazar noticed several emails from Clinton, who is currently the Democratic frontrunner for president of the United States.
Guccifer claimed he was able to access the server as and when he felt like it. He also provided extensive details about how he did it and what he found to Fox News.
In response to Lazar’s claims, the Clinton campaign issued a statement Wednesday night saying, “There is absolutely no basis to believe the claims made by this criminal from his prison cell. In addition to the fact he offers no proof to support his claims, his descriptions of Secretary Clinton’s server are inaccurate. It is unfathomable that he would have gained access to her emails and not leaked them the way he did to his other victims.
