Here’s the Latest Embarrassing Leak from the Democrats

On top of all the embarrassing leaks of DNC emails, and of Hillary’s emails, another major hack makes the news as the hacker Guccifer 2.0 released a treasure trove of private phone numbers and other private information of Democratic Congressmen and women.

According to the Smoking Gun:

8/13 UPDATE: The hacker’s Twitter account (@GUCCIFER_2) has been suspended in the wake of the latest document dump. However, his WordPress blog–to which “Guccifer 2.0” uploads his stolen goods–remains online.

 

After disappearing for a couple of weeks, the hacker “Guccifer 2.0” returned late this afternoon to provide a new headache for Democrats.

 

In a post to his WordPress blog, the vandal–who previously provided nearly 20,000 Democratic National Committee e-mails to Wikileaks–uploaded an Excel file that includes the cell phone numbers and private e-mail addresses of nearly every Democratic member of the House of Representatives.

 

The Excel file also includes similar contact information for hundreds of congressional staff members (chiefs of staff, press secretaries, legislative directors, schedulers) and campaign personnel.

 

In announcing the leak of the document, “Guccifer 2.0” reported that the spreadsheet was stolen during a hack of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “As you see I wasn’t wasting my time! It was even easier than in the case of the DNC breach,” the hacker wrote.

 

Along with the Excel file, “Guccifer 2.0” also uploaded documents that included the account names and passwords for an assortment of subscription services used by the DCCC, from Lexis-Nexis to Glenn Beck’s web site (password: nutbag).

 

While “Guccifer 2.0” claims to be Romanian and an “unknown hacker with a laptop,” cybersecurity investigators have concluded that he is part of a Russian intelligence operation that has targeted the DNC, Hillary Clinton campaign staffers, and assorted Republicans, including John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Michele Bachmann.

In a message today, the hacker branded the U.S. presidential elections a “farce” that is “being settled behind the scenes as it was with Bernie Sanders.” He added, “I wonder what happened to the true democracy, to the equal opportunities, the things we love the United States for. The big money bags are fighting for power today. They are lying constantly and don’t keep their word. The MSM are producing tons of propaganda hiding the real stuff behind it. But I do believe that people have right to know what’s going on inside the election process in fact.”

 

“Guccifer 2.0” also invited reporters to contact him via Twitter direct message: “Dear journalists, you may send me a DM if you’re interested in exclusive materials from the DCCC, which I have plenty of.”

 

The FBI is investigating the DNC and DCCC hacks along with attempts to compromise the Gmail accounts of Clinton campaign staffers through the use of “spear phishing” e-mails (as detailed in a TSG story published this morning).

 

In a series of e-mail exchanges last month, “Guccifer 2.0” described himself as a committed “hacktivist” and bristled at TSG’s portrayal of him as a thief. “Stop calling me the vandal,” he wrote. “I’m not a criminal I’m a freedom fighter.” While “Guccifer 2.0” claimed to be a foe of “all the illuminati and rich clans which try to rule the governments,” cyber investigators theorize that he may actually just be serving as the media liaison for the Russian government hacking teams suspected of breaching the Democratic Party’s computer systems.

As this is shaping up to be the most contentious election in our lifetime, it’s fair to speculate that things will only get more intense over the next two months. You can bet more leaks, revelations and other incriminating accusations are on the horizon.

    If Gluccifer really does have the goods, why doesn’t he release them? The only reason I can think of is to time them before the election but to late for the Democrats to get someone to fill in for Hillary. The only answer for Democrats is
    to assassinate Trump. Look out Donald!!!

      That’s what the Clinton’s do kill the ones that get in their way!

  • Terry Lee Swinney

    Guccifer 2.0 should release everything. We already know the DNC, DCCC, Clinton and of the rest of the Dumbocrats are crooks so why not let the world know too.

    I think it’s marvelous that some who has the charisma, money, bullish ability to withstand the heat has come forward to press the government, to bring back this nation to be a nation that respects the rule of law and preserves our freedoms and rights as a people who do not take for granted this way of life – our forefathers, military put their lives on the line for. Thank God for you too Roger Stone!

    Let us go further and do lie detector screenings and background checks for all political offices before ever running. Stop the bull.
