Hacked: The Russians Are Reading Obama’s Emails

by The New York Times  |  published on April 26, 2015

putinwinkSome of President Obama’s email correspondence was swept up by Russian hackers last year in a breach of the White House’s unclassified computer system that was far more intrusive and worrisome than has been publicly acknowledged, according to senior American officials briefed on the investigation.

The hackers, who also got deeply into the State Department’s unclassified system, do not appear to have penetrated closely guarded servers that control the message traffic from Mr. Obama’s BlackBerry, which he or an aide carries constantly.

But they obtained access to the email archives of people inside the White House, and perhaps some outside, with whom Mr. Obama regularly communicated. From those accounts, they reached emails that the president had sent and received, according to officials briefed on the investigation.

White House officials said that no classified networks had been compromised, and that the hackers had collected no classified information…

    When George W. Bush entered his first term as president he was no longer allowed to use email for communications. Why has no said anything about Obama sing email ? If it wasn’t secure in 2001 why would anyone believe it is secure now ?

    It may be that America will have the Russians to thank for information leading to the impeachment of skunk Obama. God works in mysterious ways.

    I wish the Russians would release all of obamas email some interesting material I bet, proof of being a traitor, and alot more.

    The Russians must be desperate for reading material, I wish they would release some of it so we can see what Obama writes about beside multi-million dollar taxpayer paid vacations and the mulligans he takes on all 18 holes.

    ALRIGHT —- maybe we will finally get to the bottom of ALL obozo’s scandals and who he was in contact with and how deeply he was involved in F&F, Benghazi, IRS, NSA and the clinton scandal. Interesting that a foreign country can get access to emails and information that no one in Congress or America can. Maybe Putin will turn the emails over to Snowden.

    Wonder if the data included the 6 MB members in the WH. Would be interesting to see those communications.
