Among the avalanche of new and damning evidence in the Hillary Clinton email scandal comes the news that the former secretary of state’s private email server was almost certainly hacked by at least five foreign intelligence agencies.
There was a “99 percent accuracy that it (private server) had been hacked by at least five foreign intelligence agencies, and that things had been taken from that,” Brett Baier reported for Fox News on Nov. 2, citing authoritative sourcces.
Clinton has maintained her email server was never hacked.
Newly released documents obtained by Judicial Watch also detail at least a dozen other incidences in which hackers attempted to breach Clinton’s private server.
The hacking attempts are detailed by Clinton aide Bryan Pagliano, who set up the server, and Justin Cooper, a longtime aide to Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. The attempts occurred between Nov. 27 and 29 of 2010.
During congressional testimony in September, Cooper said he never held a security clearance while managing the server that contained classified information. Despite being granted immunity in the FBI’s criminal probe of the server, Pagliano refused to testify about the server.
In total, there were more than 50 hacking attempts on Clinton’s private server, many from foreign sources, according to an incident report produced by the company that managed the system.
Meanwhile, Baier reported for Fox News on new revelations that the Clinton Foundation investigation is far more expansive than has been reported:
- the laptops of Clinton aides Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson have not been destroyed, and agents are currently combing through them;
- agents have found emails believed to have originated on Clinton’s server on Anthony Weiner’s laptop that are not duplicates and could potentially be classified in nature; and
- an indictment is “likely” in the case of pay-for-play at the Clinton Foundation.
Transcript from Baier’s report on Nov. 2:
“Breaking news tonight – two separate sources with intimate knowledge of the FBI investigations into the Clinton emails and the Clinton Foundation tell Fox the following:
The investigation looking into possible pay-for-play interaction between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Foundation has been going on for more than a year. Led by the white collar crime division, public corruption branch of the criminal investigative division of the FBI.
The Clinton Foundation investigation is a, quote, ‘very high priority.’ Agents have interviewed and re-interviewed multiple people about the Foundation case, and even before the WikiLeaks dumps, agents say they have collected a great deal of evidence. Pressed on that, one sources said, quote, ‘a lot of it,’ and ‘there is an avalanche of new information coming every day.’ “
