Trump Security Breach

By Daniel Brouse for The Membrane Domain Cybersecurity

For months, the security community has known that both the DNC and GOP were hacked. The DNC hack was used to undermine Hillary. The GOP / Trump hacks were meant for blackmailing Trump. No surprises here.

U.S. security agencies were aware of Donald Trump’s security breaches since last summer. The information was in the public domain by August of 2016. The Donald was given a copy of the report long before the story appeared in the New York Times.

In a hearing before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, FBI director James Comey said attackers penetrated GOP organizations and stole Republican National Committee emails. “There was evidence that there was hacking directed at state-level organizations and the RNC…. Information was harvested from there, but it was old stuff. None of that was released”, Comey said.

Back in August of 2016 digital security firm ThreatConnect said, “We believe DC Leaks is another Russian-backed influence outlet.” DC Leaks had released 300 stolen emails from Republican targets including the staffs of Sen. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Michele Bachmann and party officials in several states.

In October of 2016, Richard Andres, a cybersecurity and national security strategy expert with the U.S. military’s National War College said, “What we’ve been seeing here in the U.S. so far is mild by comparison to what they do in their own backyard. If they continue to escalate, we should expect to increasingly see false flag operations designed to implicate various political actors, falsified leaks, blackmail, false calls to their opponents’ political supporters and more

The Russians have gained accessed to the DNC and GOP mainly through “spearphishing.” Spearphishing is when a hacker gets someone to click on an email, attachment, link or photo. Malware is then installed on the victim’s computer that allows hackers to exploit the network. “Essentially people are opening their front door and letting them in,” said Toni Gidwani, a former Defense Intelligence Agency official whose ThreatConnect cybersecurity firm has investigated many of the hacks. “It’s something they keep coming back to because it works.”

It is not a matter of politics. It is a matter of national security. All sides need people to go to jail over the security breaches — Republicans, Democrats and Russians.

On January 11, Donald Trump tried to skirt the issue during a press conference and said he didn’t have any business in Russia. These statements were very misleading, if not an out-an-out lie. Donald Trump has substantial investment from Russians for businesses in other countries. After Trump went bankrupt 6 times, he was unable to readily borrow money from any reputable institution. Instead, he took money from Russian oligarchs and Russian mobs.

In 2008, Donald Trump Jr. attended a real estate conference and stated, “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

Bayrock is a Russian backed business that has been implicated in money laundering. The Financial Times reported, “The Republican presidential nominee and Bayrock were both based in Trump Tower and they joined forces to pursue deals around the world — from New York, Florida, Arizona and Colorado in the US to Turkey, Poland, Russia and Ukraine. Their best-known collaboration — Trump SoHo, a 46-storey hotel-condominium completed in 2010 — was featured in Mr Trump’s NBC television show The Apprentice.”
