Two More States May Have Had Election Information Hacked by Department of Homeland Security

With the 24/7 media caterwauling about the Russians hacking the election it has gone unmentioned that there WAS a government attempt to breach voter data – by Obama’s DHS. Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp demanded answers when it was discovered that the Department of Homeland Security attempted to hack into state voter information databases, a piece of information that should have an honest media demanding answers from the Obama administration.

Now in addition to the DHS attempts at penetrating the Georgia system it has been divulged that similar efforts may have been made in West Virginia and Kentucky.

According to a report from Atlanta television station WSB-TV “2 More states confirm suspected cyberattacks sourced to DHS”:

Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Aaron Diamant has learned two more states’ election agencies have confirmed suspected cyberattacks linked to the same U.S. Department of Homeland Security IP address as last month’s massive attack in Georgia.

The two states reporting the suspected cyberattacks were West Virginia and Kentucky.

“We need somebody to dig down into this story and figure out exactly what happened,” said Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

In the past week, the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office has confirmed 10 separate cyberattacks on its network over the past 10 months that were traced back to DHS addresses.

“We’re being told something that they think they have it figured out, yet nobody’s really showed us how this happened,” Kemp said. “We need to know.”

He says the new information from the two other states presents even more reason to be concerned.

“So now this just raises more questions that haven’t been answered about this and continues to raise the alarms and concern that I have,” Kemp said.

Through an open-records request, Diamant acquired the results of a survey Kemp asked the National Association of Secretaries of State to send to its members.

West Virginia wrote back, “This IP address did access our election night results on November 7, 2016.” Kentucky responded the same IP address “did touch the KY (online voter registration) system on one occasion, 11/1/16.”

In a letter this week, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson told Kemp the department sourced the mid-November activity in Georgia to a federal contractor conducting what he called “normal” internet searches on the Secretary of State’s website. But Kemp says there’s a problem with that answer.

“We haven’t been able to recreate this the way they explained it to us,” Kemp said.

 

That the criminal Obama regime would be abusing it’s power to assist Hillary and the Democrats to gain electoral advantage is hardly surprising. Consider that Jeh Johnson, an Obama crony with a Wall Street background is running the Department of Homeland Security and prior to the election admitted that his DHS Gestapo was looking to intervene in the process under the pretense of declaring the election as critical infrastructure.

Johnson dismissed Secretary Kemp’s inquiry with a wave of the hand and the standard official response along the lines of move along, there’s nothing to see here. However, now that two more states that went for Donald Trump appear to have been targeted by DHS hackers there is an aroma of a certain rodent in the air.

The anti-Russian hysteria now seems to serve an additional purpose and that may be to cover up attempts by the sitting president’s security agencies to hack the vote themselves. You sure as hell aren’t going to see John McCain and Chuck Schumer demanding a special investigative committee to get to the bottom of this.
