According to an email released this morning by Wikileaks, Clinton technology was compromised during a trip to China. This new information is courtesy of an email that Chelsea Clinton, who used the pseudonym Anna James, sent to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta in November of 2011.
In the email, Podesta states that his delayed reply was due to being “in China and not accessing this account for security reasons.” Chelsea Clinton (Anna James) replies by saying “[t]hat makes good sense to me. Our technology was all compromised while there.”
It is unclear if Hillary Clinton was on the trip or when the hack occurred. However, the server Hillary used for her emails was shared by others in the family and her closest advisers. It could’ve been hacked without her devices being directly compromised. This new evidence adds to the already mounting speculation that Hillary’s use of a unsecured private server to send and receive classified emails has compromised national secrets and potentially harmed national security.
The email was released during WikiLeaks’ “The Podesta Leaks” campaign. Today’s release was the 23nd installment of that campaign. More is expected to be released in the next few days.
