Has it occurred to anyone how ironic it is that Hillary Clinton is suddenly concerned about Russian hacking?
In every speech she gives these days she tells Americans Russian intelligence services are hacking into Democratic Party emails for the purpose of interfering in the 2016 elections.
She doesn’t offer any proof, of course. She doesn’t offer any evidence. She just makes the claim.
She also insinuates that the WikiLeaks emails so embarrassing to her campaign are merely pass-alongs from the Russians.
But here’s the irony: Hillary Clinton is now mostly known as the secretary of state who used a private, insecure email server in her home to traffic in classified and top-secret communications.
Isn’t this a case of the pot calling the kettle black?
From where comes this newfound concern about hacking? is it because she suddenly has something personal at stake now, like an election to lose?
When she was dealing with classified communications routinely, where was her worry about national security?
It was non-existent.
She ignored the law. She ignored advice. She ignored instruction. She committed felony espionage crimes for which others are currently serving long prison sentences.
But here she is as a presidential candidate flailing away daily about Russian hackers possibly, maybe, conceivably, perhaps getting their hands on a non-classified, non-national security communications from her campaign.
Why am I not seeing others in the media laughing about this? Where’s “Saturday Night Live” on this gut-buster?

But it gets even worse – and more hysterically funny if the future of the nation were not hanging in the balance.
While Clinton was secretary of state, her lawyer, Heather Samuelson, may have allowed all of her official emails to be hacked by Chinese cyberspies, according to a member of Congress.
You see, Samuelson was charged with determining which of Hillary’s emails on her private server were official business and which were personal. She used two laptops made by Lenovo, a company with ties to the Chinese government that has sold computers for years with malware pre-installed. At that point, Samuelson compromised the integrity of the contents of those emails a second time because of Clinton’s desire to shield the contents of her communications from U.S. taxpayers.
“It seems clear that Secretary Clinton and her associates played fast and loose with our national security, and yet no one — not a single person involved in this harmful fiasco — has been held accountable,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., wrote to FBI Director James Comey after learning the make and model of Samuelson’s computer.
How bad is Lenovo?
This bad: State Department officials have been banned from using them since 2006. In 2015, the company admitted to installing a program called “Superfish” on 43 different computer models, “specifically the models used by Heather Samuelson for reviewing classified emails,” as Goodlatte emphasized.
Lenovo started installing Superfish in 2010, according to the Department of Homeland Security. The program is designed to place ads on users’ computers, but it could easily be used by hackers to attack a computer remotely. “Websites, such as banking and email, can be spoofed without a warning from the browser,” the DHS warned in February 2015.
What kind of data would the Chinese spies have received from these hacks?
“This information is so highly classified that even congressional oversight committees were not able to review the emails,” wrote Goodlatte.
Next time you hear Hillary Clinton lecturing everyone else about the danger of Russian hacks of her campaign chief’s emails, would someone please stand up and remind her who was in charge of the State Department during the total compromise of national security that took place under her watch?
The obvious lesson here is that Hillary cares much more about her election race than she ever did or ever will about national security.
And she certainly doesn’t care about the integrity of the election system. Given what we’ve seen in James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas videos, that’s an even bigger joke.
