Ever since Wikileaks began releasing damaging information about the Clinton campaign via John Podesta’s emails, their response has been to blame Russian hackers. The Clinton campaign has gone to extreme measures to shift the focus away from the content found in the emails to the supposed hackers. Hillary even attacked Donald Trump over it in the last debate, accusing him of working with the Russians.

But the hack was not as complex as the state sponsored, blackhat operation the Clinton’s would have you believe. In the latest batch of Podesta emails, it looks like Podesta’s password was emailed to him from an aide.

And it is stupidly simple.

See for yourself:


Russian hackers, indeed. A bored high school student could have figured this out.
