Couldn't happen to a more deserving douchebag.
The FBI and CIA are investigating an attempted hack on the Trump Organization. According to a report from ABC citing unnamed officials with the intelligence agencies, it is believed someone overseas attempted to breach the President's international real estate holding company. The report claims that officials and …
"Attempted" hacks happen to everyone. I see a bunch of hits at my desktop's SSH port every day.
The consequences if Trump were successfully hacked would be a lot worse than if I was successfully hacked, of course, especially if they were able to find something to hold over his head. Of course, that may have already happened, and might explain his love for Putin and all things Russia!
Apart from him being a semi-literate real estate developer who behaves like an elephant in must in a porcelain shop full with progressive and necon false idols (idols that are squamous yet ruguous), as well as having a definite lack of oily suaveness / fake coolness expected in high-pedigree presidential material, I still don't see what is so douchebag about him. (Well, I wouldn't let my daughter near any of that, true.)
Of course, one is expected to behave like we are told, and we ARE told. All the time via throwaway lines....
In the months following the election, the FBI and Congress have launched investigations into just how much (if anything) the Trump campaign knew of the Russian meddling.
Especially as said "Russian meddling" is still , in spite of more than a year of overheated talk and innuendo, generally by necon/globalist outlets like the NYT, not apparent.
On the other hand, nobody is looking at the bizarre killing of Seth Rich, DNC ex-leaker.
(Here is a link on how Trump and Putin may be connected though: The Happy-Go-Lucky Jewish Group That Connects Trump and Putin: Where Trump's real estate world meets a top religious ally of the Kremlin.. Pretty good.)
... might explain his love for Putin and all things Russia!
But totally Fails to explain why The Donald in spite of this manly "love" has loaded his administration to the max with cold-warriors, military blow-hards and security-state cronies? Oh and The Flopping (since he didn't even get to "Flip" first) on every, single, issue in his campaign.
Unless .... whoever "has something" is pretty much the same lot that ran Hillary Clinton.
.... "They" didn't mind much Hillary selling off all that Uranium to the Russians, so we can expect The Donald to get a break too by the people that matter - which are not the whiny dims and their now obsolete party machinery. Obsolete because The Donald runs The Graft now.
Nuke - Because that was what Craazy Killlary would have done.
"The consequences if Trump were successfully hacked would be a lot worse than if I was successfully hacked," ... but would they really be? Trump is such a disaster that in theory the hackers could go in and unintentionally cause improvements. Like deleting files for stupid ideas. Or dumping a huge porn collection for him to watch at 3 am instead of twittering. Or planting a fake Obama birth certificate from Kenya, which would get him so excited the resulting explosion of his head would be HUGE.
Or it could just be Putin checking up on his "investments."
He hasn't flopped on every issue from his campaign. Merely those that promised to benefit ordinary Americans, like cheaper/better health insurance, infrastructure spending, bringing back factory jobs, draining the swamp. If you voted for him on those grounds - well, the more fool you.
But some issues he's been steadfast on. Cutting taxes for the rich, specifically himself and his family, he's pretty firm on that. Appointing a conservative to the Supreme Court. Being anti-abortion. Increasing military spending. Basically, everything the Republican party orthodoxy is into, he's right there beside them, because he knows he needs their support.
It wasn't Russians who hacked the DNC's emails: Seth Rich gave Kim Dotcom the DNC emails, so he could forward them to Wikileaks, then he died in mysterious circumstances, just as the Russian Hackers conspiracy was rolled out by the DNC to undermine Trump’s Presidency.
Proof that Trump was not a russian Puppet was delivered fairly convincingly when he used Cruise missiles against a Syrian Airfield also used by the Russians. He did give Russia warning so they could avoid losing their planes and pilots, but that was to avoid starting WWIII.
If Seth Rich gave anything to Kim Dotcom, then Dotcom would have published it to the world himself, and he would have done it months ago. Now there's a man who doesn't know the meaning of the word "shy".
And if Kim Dotcom has any actual evidence, he could be a lot more convincing.
@John Brown (no body): he's not. He's never been concerned about that, and the USA has never applied for it.
What he's concerned about is having to do jail time in Sweden. Everything else is just a blind, because - and brace yourself for a shock here, I know it's hard to believe - Assange is a born poseur.
To a first approximation, and probably a further refinement or two, the reported action is not materially different from the attempt by the FBI in late 2015 to alert the Democratic National Committee that their servers had been penetrated. The main difference seems to be that that the Trump organization paid attention, rather than ignoring it for months of repeated FBI contacts as the DNC did.
> "Well now the CIA and FBI have a legitimate reason to rummage around in the Trump organization systems..."
Oh? You really believe that it's okay that a failed intrusion attempt on a private company should trigger a full-scale FBI/CIA fishing expedition, complete with hip-waders? I hate to burst your bubble here, but reality is calling and it says no.
Besides, there's new management coming in, so you can easily blame any inaction concerning this wish-fulfillment fantasy of yours on "obstruction." ;-/
Are we sure it wasn't the FBI/CIA/... in the first place just using a VPN so that they *appeared* to be in another country :)
BTW: have to wonder if the rest of the organisation is still using out-of-date (and more importantly out of security updates) software like the campaign team were....
Hey John, I hate to burst your bubble here, but reality is calling and it says you are a fool. The Orange idiot that you elected is a Russian stooge.
Wake up and smell the coffee.......
Hi, I see you are currently on fire - would you like me to put it out?
"On Fire? That's crazy, I am not on fire, I am.... my parents lived... and that's why Islam is.... and it was the biggest arms deal the US has ever done, it was the greatest, much better than any deal that has been done before... and that's why I am not on fire...."
Uh... OK - but I can literally smell your flesh burning and see the actual flames....
"Flames? No... that's fake news - I have the best words - I have the best people - I have the best intel, I have people that would tell me if I was on fire..."
I imagine this is very close to how a conversation about Donald Trump being on fire might play out....
You all hate a president that you think is "racist" because he took a stand against Islamic Terrorism whilst there are 22 sets of parents in Manchester burying their children, whilst their Mayor repeats the false narrative "It's nothing to do with Islam", especially as he relied on the Muslim vote to get into power.
