Beijing Not Surprised by US Blaming China for Hacking Clinton's Emails

BEIJING (Sputnik) - The Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday there was nothing unusual about the United States accusing Beijing of hacking the emails of former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

"China opposes any type of cyberattack. We believe that the international community should continue its efforts… to ensure the security of cyberspace," ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a briefing, adding that China saw "nothing new" in the US accusations.

Earlier on Wednesday, US President Donald Trump said that media reports about a Chinese-owned company obtaining nearly all of Clinton's emails comprised "a very big story" since the correspondence contained classified information.

US news website The Daily Caller reported on Tuesday, citing sources, that a China-owned firm operating in Washington, DC hacked Clinton's private server when she was serving as secretary of state and obtained almost all of her emails in real time as she exchanged communication. According to the sources, the alleged hacking was part of an intelligence operation.

 

The Clinton email scandal erupted in March 2015, when The New York Times reported that the former secretary of state had used a personal account to conduct government business from 2009 to 2013, in violation of State Department rules.

On July 10, 2015, the FBI launched a full investigation into "potential unauthorized transmission and storage of classified information" on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's personal email server. The agency revealed that a substantial part of her correspondences contained classified information. Still, after a yearlong probe, FBI Director James Comey recommended no charges against Clinton on July 5, 2016.

 

In late October 2016, Comey resumed the probe into Clinton's emails after some of them had been found on a laptop owned by Anthony Weiner, the husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. A few days later, Comey stated that the FBI had not changed its previous conclusions with regard to the Democratic presidential nominee. The FBI director's flip-flops coincided with the final phase of the Clinton election campaign and were largely seen as the nail in the coffin for her presidential bid.

Chinese company reportedly hacked Clinton's server, got copy of every email in real-time

 

A Chinese state-owned company reportedly hacked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email server, then inserted code that forwarded them a copy of virtually every email she sent or received after that -- a revelation President Trump is demanding be investigated.

The Daily Caller reported that the firm operating in the D.C. area wrote code that was then embedded in the server and generated a “courtesy copy” for almost all her emails -- which was then forwarded to the Chinese company.

The code reportedly was discovered in 2015 by the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), which then warned FBI officials of the intrusion.

 

A source briefed on the matter confirmed to Fox News the details of the Caller’s reporting, and said that the ICIG was so concerned by the revelation that officials drove over to the FBI to inform agents -- including anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok -- of the development after it was discovered via the emails' metadata.

 

The source told Fox News the hack was from a Chinese company, describing it as a front for Chinese intelligence.

 

A second source briefed on the matter told Fox News that officials outside of the FBI indicated code on the Clinton server suggested a foreign source was receiving copies of emails in real time.

The hacking report caught the attention late Tuesday of President Trump, who warned that the FBI and DOJ should act or “their credibility will be forever gone.” 

 

But the FBI disputed the claims. 

 

“The FBI has not found any evidence the servers were compromised,” an FBI official told Fox News and referred to the Justice Department's Inspector General report in June. That report detailed how the FBI conducted intrusion analyses into the server to look for evidence the accounts on the server had been accessed.

 

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying also responded to Trump’s tweet, saying: "This isn't the first time we've heard similar kinds of allegations.”

 

"China is a staunch defender of cybersecurity. We firmly oppose and crack down on any forms of internet attacks and the stealing of secrets," she said, according to Reuters

 

The ICIG declined to comment. 

 

Clinton's office did not respond to a request for comment, but a spokesman told The Daily Caller, “The FBI spent thousands of hours investigating, and found no evidence of intrusion. That’s a fact.” 

 

Fox News reported in March that Strzok was advised of an irregularity in the metadata of Clinton’s server that suggested a possible breach, but no follow-up action was taken.

 

'

Further, a May 2016 email from Strzok, obtained by Fox News earlier this year, said “we know foreign actors obtained access” to some Clinton emails, including at least one “secret” message “via compromises of the private email accounts” of Clinton staffers.

 

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, asked Strzok in a House Oversight Committee hearing in July whether he was briefed about an anomaly on Clinton’s emails found by ICIG officials.

“You were given that information, and you did nothing with it,” Gohmert told Strzok in July.

 

Strzok said he remembered meeting with the ICIG officials, but did not remember the contents of the meeting and that every allegation was forwarded to experts who looked at it carefully.

 

“If there was a lead, I gave it to the team,” Strzok said as part of a heated back-and-forth between the two. Strzok was fired this month after controversy surrounding anti-Trump texts he sent to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was having an affair. 

 

Reached by phone Tuesday, Gohmert told Fox News on Tuesday that the emails were obtained by a foreign country’s intelligence, but he declined to name the country in question. He said there was no sign that Strzok and the FBI had taken any action when informed by the ICIG, and no indication that they even informed Clinton.

 

He told Fox News he was surprised that his questioning about it in the Strzok hearing in July didn’t generate more media attention, but noted that the press seized on a comment he made shortly afterward when he asked Strzok, “How many times did you look into your wife’s eyes and lie about Lisa Page?” 

 

“It’s critically important,” he said, when asked about the significance of the server revelation. “There are countries that would pay a tremendous amount of money to know what Clinton was saying, doing and thinking through her emails, what she’s doing, who she’s going to meet, what she thought about meetings, not necessarily classified but critically important and those emails were compromised and people like Strzok, when they were briefed, knew this would devastate her chances of being elected and they weren't about to do anything to hurt those chances.”

 

Then-FBI Director James Comey concluded the FBI’s investigation into Clintons emails in July 2016, saying that while Clinton had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information, he would not recommend charges to the DOJ.

Just because the FBI says they have no evidence dont mean nothing they dropped the ball on the Clinton case and let a crook walk free,   James Comey was fired  for doing a bad job and they  put a pro  Clinton supporter Peter Strzok that him and his lover had phone conversation  about getting Trump impeached time and time again over the Clinton case  so the FBI don't have a very good track record when it comes to this case and i take anything they say with grain of salt and really if its coming from the left winged media i dont even value what they say at all.. form a center news site i may listen more  . Even if it's true or not in USA we have freedom of speech and freedom of the press unlike China does and who do  you expect a right winged Republican to be getting there news from CNN? :lol: Trump tried to defend Russia time and time again on the hacking, but they keep pushing him not to, the left and FBI wants to make like it's all the Russians fault and China never does no wrong. Regardless of what Trump says the left winged media is going to undermine it.:tease:

I didn't say that but  it's only real when they have real evidence to prove it . When the USA got it's cover blown in the past it was not Russia or China who blew it it were whistle blowers with hard core proof   something they have not  been able to cough up in Russiagate  so far . I'm a realest i dont believe things just because my Government says it,  too many times they been caught making stuff up. The fact the FBI don't ever have any evidence pretty much explains them . Tell they do it's all talk. There is no real evidence they don't have none .It's still on going there fixing to question big tech about  it, it's far from over, if congress had any idea of what really happened they would not  keep questioning everyone 2 years latter, if they knew it for a fact.

 

Google itself may be  investigated  for doing the same thing  Russia is accused of with trying to sway voters .

Proof of CNN posting more fake news about Trump and Russia that proved there so called evidence was all made up. Them posting fake news is nothing new just like all them stories they posted about Iraq in the 2nd gulf war that were fake . Saddam Hussein should never been killed and they should of never been a 2nd war  because the USA destroyed all those weapons in the 1sst war .Bush done that  because he wanted to finish his dads war and get access to there oil and use it for a military base. The media are not law enforcement no way they only know what a source tells them they don't never investigate something for a year to see if it's true before they arrest anyone they say people are guilty based on a hunch. The Government only lets them know what they want them to know and not always what info they give them is even true as we seen time and time again. :clap:
