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.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
