The most ‘secure and ethical administration’ in history has, after nearly eight years, become the most tight-lipped and porous presidency in the history of our nation. Which serial hacks of personnel and of the IRS, one wonders whether anything is off limits to would-be hackers abroad.
And now matters have turned for worst if reports are confirmed. The same hacking group that gained access to former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s private emails about Hillary has now claimed it has breached White House servers and gained access to Michell Obama’s personal passport.
According to the website DC Leaks, which is the public face of the hacker group, “The leaked files show the security level of our government. If terrorists hack emails of White House Office staff and get such sensitive information we will see the fall of our country.”
According to the group’s site, the access was gained through an email account owned by White House staffer Ian Mellul. Attorney General Loretta Lynch informed the press that the Justice Department is looking into the incident.
This is just the latest in federal hacking incidents that have come at the cost of millions of dollars to taxpayers along with the release of private citizens’ personal information to the tune of double-digit millions of former federal personnel.
