"John McAfee -- in an email exchange and follow up phone call just moments ago -- said sources within the Dark Web suggest it was Iran, and he absolutely agrees. While Russian hackers get more media attention nowadays, Iranian hackers have had their share. "

In the article McAfee states that he thinks Iran wants Trump as President. He may be a brilliant, cyber security expert but he's as wrong as he can be on that score.

I’m not hung up over which foreign country did it.

What I don’t get is — if a US government official follows protocol and carrie sout their communications on appropriate servers and handles everything with care, then the risk of hacking — although never reduced to zero — becomes much less.

But if you communicate through a private server maintained in your bathroom, by IT people with no special clearances, then your risk of being hacked — while never reaching 100% — becomes much greater.

Russia did it?
Iran did it?

The point is: Hillary made it easy for someone to do it.

If true it’s probably Iran’s way of giving Obama the finger ONE more time...

Real Easy.

All anyone had to do was to click on the DONATE NOW button and depending on the amount of the donation, information would automatically be emailed to them.

Iran is run by the 12th Imam crowd. They want a nuclear war because the Mahdi will return then. They think Donald Trump will give them that war because all Hillary and Obama did was give them everything they asked for.

Exactly opposite.

They KNOW Hillary is a coward, AFRAID of actual violence though guilty of it dozens of times by her underlings! - and so they FEAR Trump, and despise Clinton as a woman, a frail old bitch, and a lesbian sellout. Hillary can be bought and sold for easy money - as long as it is not for a Jewish or Christian cause - and so they only need to either ignore her, or pay her more than their enemies pay her.

Just look at her face in that photo of the WH staffers as bin Laden was killed.

Hillary made it easy for someone to do.

And if you aren’t doing anything wrong, it shouldn’t matter that much if you are hacked.

They promised to be the most transparent administration. Wikileaks is just helping them honor their promise.

He could be right, but understand just who the guy is and what he's like.

Well I don't buy it. I still think it is possible all of these hacks are inside jobs from one or more disgruntled people. We do have a dead body.

If Hillary did it intentionally, she should be charged with high treason. I believe that Comey knows the answer.

I heard McAfee is a very hard core drug-abuser.

Of course, Az Joe and the smartest woman in the U.S. can never be wrong.

Nice try doofus.
I'll keep my money on McAfee.

All our compromised and corrupt "intelligence" services AND the unindicted criminal insist it's Russia.
The same unindicted criminal who created an entire War Room in the white House to enable The Rapist of Pennsylvania Avenue...
