In an election season that gets stranger by the day it is being reported the Department of Homeland Security is being accused of an unauthorized attempt to breach of Georgia voter registration databases. If true it could be an indication that all of the hullabaloo about “Russian” interference with the democratic process is only a red herring and those seeking to rig the election are operating from within.
The real shocker is that the alleged penetration took place AFTER the election which begs the will of WHY?
The bombshell report by the Wall Street Journal could rock the nation in light of efforts by Green Party nominee – and Hillary stooge – Jill Stein’s recount bid in three states won by Trump as well as blatant efforts by the Clinton camp to tamper with Electoral College voters.
The secretary of state of Georgia is asking the Department of Homeland Security to explain what appears to be an attempted breach of the state’s computer systems that house its voter registration database by someone in the federal government.
In a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson dated Thursday, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brian Kemp said the state had discovered an unsuccessful attempt to breach the firewall of state computer systems. The attempt occurred on Nov. 15 and was linked to an IP address associated with DHS, he said.
“We are looking into the matter. DHS takes the trust of our public and private sector partners seriously, and we will respond to Secretary Kemp directly,” a spokeswoman for DHS said.
“At no time has my office agreed to or permitted DHS to conduct penetration testing or security scans of our network,” wrote Mr. Kemp, a Republican. “Moreover, your department has not contacted my office since this unsuccessful incident to alert us of any security event that would require testing or scanning of our network.”
The Feds have some explaining to do and especially in regards to the following question asked by the Georgia Secretary of State per the WSJ article:
In his letter, Mr. Kemp asked the department to confirm whether a scan attempt was made, who authorized the scan and whether the department was scanning other state systems without authorization.
Yes indeed, the proverbial million dollar question is which – if any – other states were similarly targeted. The follow-up million dollar question is why would DHS be stupid enough to not mask their IP address? Would it be overly conspiratorial to suspect a ruse that would allow for a more widespread federal probe that would be tasked with finding proof that the Russians and not the American voters were responsible for Trump’s stunning win?
Things may be about to get real serious as there is no way in hell that the establishment is going to go quietly.
