Clinton camp: ‘Unfathomable’ that hacker breached email server


Hillary Clinton’s team quickly shot down a claim from a Romanian hacker that he had breached the private email server Clinton used while serving as secretary of State. 

{mosads}”There is absolutely no basis to believe the claims made by this criminal from his prison cell. In addition to the fact he offers no proof to support his claims, his descriptions of Secretary Clinton’s server are inaccurate. It is unfathomable that he would have gained access to her emails and not leaked them the way he did to his other victims,” the Clinton camp wrote in a statement.

Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, known as “Guccifer,” told several news outlets that he had easily hacked into her email server on more than one occasion. His hack into the email account of a close Clinton ally first brought her server to light. 

Clinton has claimed throughout the investigations into her email setup that it was never infiltrated by foreign hackers as critics accused her of putting confidential materials at risk. 

Lazar was recently extradited to the United States and is currently in prison in Alexandria, Va., facing other cyber crime charges. 

“We have received no indication from any government agency to support these claims, nor are they reflected in the range of charges that Guccifer already faces and that prompted his extradition in the first place. And it has been reported that security logs from Secretary Clinton’s email server do not show any evidence of foreign hacking,” the Clinton statement said.
