Skip to comments.Was a Trump Server Communicating With Russia?

This spring, a group of computer scientists set out to determine whether hackers were interfering with the Trump campaign. They found something they werent expecting.
...snipIn late July, one of these scientistswho asked to be referred to as Tea Leaves, a pseudonym that would protect his relationship with the networks and banks that employ him to sift their datafound what looked like malware emanating from Russia. The destination domain had Trump in its name, which of course attracted Tea Leaves attention. But his discovery of the data was pure happenstancea surprising needle in a large haystack of DNS lookups on his screen. I have an outlier here that connects to Russia in a strange way, he wrote in his notes. He couldnt quite figure it out at first. But what he saw was a bank in Moscow that kept irregularly pinging a server registered to the Trump Organization on Fifth Avenue.
More data was needed, so he began carefully keeping logs of the Trump servers DNS activity. As he collected the logs, he would circulate them in periodic batches to colleagues in the cybersecurity world. Six of them began scrutinizing them for clues.
What the scientists amassed wasnt a smoking gun. Its a suggestive body of evidence that doesnt absolutely preclude alternative explanations. But this evidence arrives in the broader context of the campaign and everything else that has come to light: The efforts of Donald Trumps former campaign manager to bring Ukraine into Vladimir Putins orbit; the other Trump adviser whose communications with senior Russian officials have worried intelligence officials; the Russian hacking of the DNC and John Podestas email.
We dont yet know what this server was for, but it deserves further explanation.

Hillary is tweeting this nonsense. It reads like a Coast to Coast show. Incredibly long and way at the end you find it’s not true, NYT disproved it, they admit there are other explanations. It’s all data conspiracy craziness.
Was Hillary’s sever communicating with the Russians?
US officials see no link between Trump and Russia: report
I love the left’s tactic of asking a question, e.g. “Is Trump a serial groper?”; “Will the GOP rebound after Trump?” “Will Trump’s temper lead us to war?”
The article here is example #7,589, (just this week!).
From the end of the article- “What the scientists amassed wasnt a smoking gun. Its a suggestive body of evidence that doesnt absolutely preclude alternative explanations.” It’s nonsense and Hillary relied on it like a kook.
Oh, Fer Pete’s Sake. Give. It. Up.
Hillary is TOAST...and should have already been arrested last July. Huma is going to SING like a canary to save her sorry Muslim @ss because the Devil She Knew WILL throw her under the bus!
Best. Election. Ever. EVER!
Okay, it’s got to be gospel.
LOL. I crack me up.
This story likely originated on a single entry WordPress blog:
An critique of the above blog post by an author likely hostile towards “Donny” finds the story flimsy to say the least:
Yes, that’s why I included that final paragraph. Even Slate knows they must shield themselves from the manure they are shoveling in case they end up in court.
Translation: we got nothing so we'll make some stuff up and hope it sticks.
If I'd written this crap I'd shoot myself.
It’s “intelligent” enough for a Hillary supporter!
I’m just an IT dilletante and it seemed like a case of looking too hard for something.
This is BS and doesn’t belong here. Now is not the time to give crap stories like this a single hit.
A better question is who was Huma Abiden communicating with?
The stench of Progressive bull crap is in the air.

Probably the real story is that Clinton campaign is making a big stink about this easily debunked garbage. It is the move of a candidate in despair. This story proves that Clinton has destroyed herself.
