DNC Claims it Was Hacked, Contacts FBI. Hours Later, They Retract Their Claim. Here’s What Really Happened.

The Democratic National Committee contacted the FBI on Wednesday, claiming that someone was trying to hack into its voter database system. However, just a few short hours after making the claim, they had to retract it.

Gee, liberals jumping the gun and having a knee-jerk reaction to something without possessing all the facts? Who would’ve guessed?

The New York Times reported that officials described the alleged attempt to hack their system, Votebuilder, as an “aggressive” attack, claiming that the “hackers set up a fake page that mimicked the party’s login page for its voter-registration website, a tactic that could gather names, passwords and other credentials of those using the voter database.”

Bob Lord, chief security officer for the Democratic National Committee, said, “This attempt is further proof that there are constant threats as we head into midterm elections, and we must remain vigilant in order to prevent future attacks.”

Late on Wednesday, Democrats were forced to retract their claims after new information came to light and now say that the alleged “hacking attempt” was nothing more than a “test.”

“We, along with the partners who reported the site, now believe it was built by a third party as part of a simulated phishing test on VoteBuilder,” Lord said in a new statement. “The test, which mimicked several attributes of actual attacks on the Democratic party’s voter file, was not authorized by the DNC, VoteBuilder nor any of our vendors.”

This incident comes hot on the heels of a strange claim made by Florida Democratic Senator Bill Nelson who said “the Russians are in Florida’s records,” a statement that has caused him more than a few problems.

The Department of Homeland Security took Nelson to the woodshed for his claims, stating there’s no evidence to suggest any outside meddling in the 2018 midterms that are to be held this November. At the end of the day, it seems Nelson, who’s seat is up for grabs, was playing a little politics, hoping to garner more support for the midterms.

Perhaps the lesson here is for Democrats to slow their role, get some therapy for the paranoia, and learn not to jump to conclusions without having the facts.

Former Acting DNI Says Trump Told Him ‘Multiple Times’ He’s Running for POTUS 2024

The first openly gay cabinet member got little to no recognition from the mainstream media because he worked for a Republican administration. After all, the MSM works as the public relations branch of the Democrat Party. What Richard Grenell said on Monday, though, will have every liberal in the media listening intently. #Trump2024 WATCH: https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1353516978544250882?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1353516978544250882%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frichard-grenell-trump-does-want-to-run-again-in-2024-video%2F President Tucker Carlson? How does that sound to you? Could it one day happen, perhaps as soon as 2024? Only time will tell, obviously, but the rumor is abuzzin’. From Politico: Tucker Carlson’s audience is booming — and so is chatter that the popular Fox News host will parlay his TV perch into a run for president in 2024. Republican strategists, conservative commentators, and former Trump campaign and administration officials are buzzing about Carlson as the next-generation leader of Donald Trump’s movement — with many believing he would be an immediate frontrunner in a Republican primary. CONTINUED: “He’s a talented communicator with a massive platform. I think if he runs he’d be formidable,” said Luke Thompson, a Republican strategist who worked for Jeb Bush’s super PAC in 2016. While practically every Republican eyeing a 2024 presidential run is professing loyalty to Trump the person, Carlson has become perhaps the highest-profile proponent of “Trumpism” — a blend of anti-immigrant nationalism, economic populism and America First isolationism that he articulates unapologetically and with some snark. At the same time, he’s shown a rare willingness among Republicans to bluntly criticize Trump when he believes the president is straying from that ideology.

Chief Justice Roberts Will Not Preside Over Impeachment Trial, Will Be Top Dem Leader Instead

They want revenge, vengeance.

“Wanna know how I got these scars?” That was the question Heath Ledger’s Joker asked a partygoer in 2008’s The Dark Knight. Said partygoer is the man who will preside over the second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Not a joke. Just search the internet for SENATOR LEAHY BATMAN. From The Hill: Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will not preside over former President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, which is scheduled to begin in earnest on Feb. 8. Instead, Senate President Pro Tempore Patrick Leahy (Vt.), the most senior member of the Senate Democratic Conference, will preside over the trial. CONTINUED: Leahy on Monday confirmed he would wield the gavel and promised to administer “impartial justice.” “The president pro tempore has historically presided over Senate impeachment trials of non-presidents. When presiding over an impeachment trial, the president pro tempore takes an additional special oath to do impartial justice according to the Constitution and its laws. It is an oath that I take extraordinarily seriously,” he said in a statement. How incredibly moronic is it to impeach a president after he has left office? What a waste of time. Democrats have proven, time and again, that they are not out for “unity.” Not at all. They want revenge; vengeance; blood. Okay, I did the search for you.
