As U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was already under investigation for keeping a private server with classified information on it in her home. Yet, she ordered no apparent protection from hackers into the Democratic National Committee during her campaign.
And, it is not as if she didn’t have numerous contacts in the U.S. State Department or U.S. Secret Service to give her advice.
If Secretary Clinton was so careless defending herself, why would we expect her, as commander in chief, to defend us from this ongoing identify theft and cyber-warfare?
As for voting machines, Bev Harris at blackboxvoting.org has warned since 2004 that voting machines can be easily hacked.
For this reason, Harris has advocated a return to paper ballots. To ensure a fair count, the ballots need to be counted at the precinct after polling, where voters can observe the count.
Sanctions against Russia target only bad actors among many, and does little to actually defend against cyber-attacks. Nor do sanctions guarantee the validity of our elections — only paper ballots can do that.
President Barack Obama had eight years, not just a few weeks before the 2016 election, to defend the U.S. and its citizens from cyber-warfare and to return to paper ballots.
Only now that Democrats want to overturn the 2016 election results does hacking and voting machines come into play.
