It has been awhile that we have heard the left accuse the Russians of hacking the election. For weeks, all we heard was that it the Russians were solely responsible for Trump’s magnificent victory over Hillary Clinton. It still is inconceivable to these snowflakes that Clinton lost because she was a corrupt politician. Oh, no that could not be it at all. Well, thankfully there will be an investigation into hacking, but the target is not the Russians.
Federal officials are now launching an investigation into why the Department of Homeland Security hacked into the Georgia state governmental network, including its election system.
Inspector General for DHS, John Roth, would like to know why the agency broke protocol on its way to ten unprecedented attacks. The attacks were on the system that was overseen by Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp. Kemp, has been a vocal critic of the Obama administration. Kemp, has said that the Obama administration’s attempt to designate local and state election machinery as part of federal “critical infrastructure.”
According to The Daily Caller:
A Jan. 17 letter from Roth notified Kemp his office was officially “investigating a series of ten alleged scanning events of the Georgia Secretary of State’s network that may have originated from DHS-affiliated IP addresses.” A firewall in Georgia’s system thwarted each attempt.
Former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson and Kemp have clashed over a federal government designation of election systems as “critical infrastructure.” Kemp called it “political power play to federalize elections.”
“I respectfully write today to request that you task your new Secretary of Homeland Security with investigating the failed cyber attacks against the Georgia Secretary of State’s network firewall.”
“We’re certainly excited and glad that we’re just going to get our questions answered,” Kemp told TheDCNF. “That’s all we’ve been asking for and we think we deserve to know what was going on. The explanation they (DHS) have been giving us leaves a lot of holes unanswered.”
