Presumed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is in more hot water now than ever with the State Department publicly criticizing her for not following procedure and requesting to use her personal server for classified transmissions. In fact, the State Department went as far as to say it would not have given permission even if she had asked for it.
Now, the fact that her email server was hacked showed another security threat, and subsequently many have begun calling for Hillary to drop out of the presidential race.
Cynthia McFadden, a NBC News senior investigative correspondent for “Dateline on Assignment,” broadcast an interview on Wednesday’s “MSNBC Live” in which Marcel Lazăr Lehel, the hacker known as “Guccifer” exposed a huge bombshell about Hillary.
Lehel stated that he had access to then-Secretary of State Clinton’s personal email server. He saw that it was an easy target and described it as “an open orchid,” basically stating that the security surrounding the server was easily bypassed.
Lehel, who spoke via a translator, said that Clinton’s server was unprotected and that he had total access to the server. Her email server to him, an experienced hacker, “was like an open orchid on the Internet, as many such servers are.”
During the interview, McFadden added that Lehel told her he had downloaded things from the server but he could not provide those materials because he was in prison.
McFadden added that an FBI official she spoke with on camera said that Lehel had admitted to a federal crime on camera in his description of hacking Clinton’s server and questioned why he would do so if it was not true.
