The media spin is that when Democrats get hacked, it’s the fault of Republicans. And when Republicans get hacked, it’s the fault of Republicans.
(This is also the media’s spin for absolutely everything.)
But who would have wanted to hack into the National Republican Congressional Committee in 2018? Somebody who was possibly very interested in the election. There are plenty of opportunistic hackers and foreign interests. But when the Democrats get hacked, it’s a Republican conspiracy. When Republicans get hacked, it’s shame on them.
The House GOP campaign arm suffered a major hack during the 2018 election, exposing thousands of sensitive emails to an outside intruder, according to three senior party officials.
The email accounts of four senior aides at the National Republican Congressional Committee were surveilled for several months, the party officials said. The intrusion was detected in April by an NRCC vendor, who alerted the committee and its cybersecurity contractor. An internal investigation was initiated and the FBI was alerted to the attack, said the officials, who requested anonymity to discuss the incident.
The hack became a major source of consternation within the committee as the midterm election unfolded.
Hacks have targeted both sides of the aisle. But instead of dealing with this fact, the media keeps pushing its Mueller/Russia conspiracy theories because they advance its political agenda.
