Hacked DNC Voicemails Released by Wikileaks

Hacked DNC Voicemails Released by Wikileaks

They have voicemails, too?

The slow drip of hacked correspondence from Democratic National Convention higher ups continues.

Wednesday night, Wikileaks published hacked voicemail recordings.

The Washington Times reported:

On the night President Obama and Vice Presidential nominee Tim Kaine were scheduled to speak to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, the anti-secrecy whistle-blower group released hacked voicemails of top Democratic officials.

Wikileaks put up a page containing 29 mp3 files of calls, identified by phone number, running approximately 14 minutes combined.

None of the messages listened to by The Washington Times contained anything immediately obvious as embarrassing or incriminating.

However, the very fact the DNC voicemail system has been hacked is embarrassing and could augur the release of far more damaging material later.

A swath of more than 20,000 emails released last Friday seemed to indicate Democratic Party officials were working against Bernie Sanders, even going so far as discussing using his religion against him.

The very public, very embarrassing hack led to the resignation of DNC Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Shultz. DWS long protested criticism the DNC was intentionally tilting the scales in Hillary’s favor. Following her resignation from the DNC, DWS will join Hillary’s campaign as a surrogate.

It will be harder to get information out of these. There’s bad searching and most voicemails are exactly the types of things you would expect on a voicemail.

But if there’s anything juicy, people will get fired.

PS. why don’t people think that the DNC hack has anything to do with the DNC data director who got shot in the head one day after the hack?

    I hadn’t heard about the DNC staffer, but it is freaky deaky. This was DNC staffer shot in the back of the head on July 10, and yet they didn’t take any jewelry, wallet or money. Really makes you wonder if there is a connection to the DNC hack.

    Fired? No one’s been fired at DNC for the emails.

    If I were a conservative commentator who had the chance to opine on this on television in any broadcast, my one, single message would be this: “Wiki can’t leak what isn’t there to leak in the first place. The DNC staffers wrote these emails. Not one of them yet has been cashiered. Tells you all you need to know about the Democrats.”

    Then I’d bring up the voicemail.

    The Clinton’s political journey has a long history of “people who know stuff” having an accident or being a victim of an unsolvable crime. The DNC staffer is unavailable for an interview.

“You can’t stop the signal, Mal.”

Heh…!!!

When can we please see Hillary’s deleted emails from her “private” server? You know somebody out there has them.

“They have voicemails, too?” Who do you think they are?

Bradley Cooper returned to his native Philadelphia Wednesday night to attend the Democratic National Convention, subsequently angering some conservative fans of American Sniper, the 2014 film in which Cooper portrayed Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

During Wednesday night’s broadcast of the DNC, cameras intermittently cut to a bearded Cooper, who could been sitting with girlfriend and Russian model Irina Shayk.

… now we know who hacked those DNC emails

The voicemail system is part and parcel of the email system. E.g. they are the same system. When wikileaks acquired the emails, the voicemails were there all along as attachments to the emails.

Anyone who has a google voice account knows what I mean. When your google voice phone number received a call, it is answered by Google’s voicemail system. Once the message is completed, and the caller has hung up, Google attempts to create a text of the voicemail, and emails the text to you after attaching the mp3 of the actual voicemail. It looks like the DNC system is very similar to that.

Now, all DNC senior staffers seem to believe they’re on the verge of being fired — and that’s before the next WikiLeaks release, which many fear is coming within days, and which DNC lawyers are bracing for. Several staff members have already been asked to prepare statements about their departures.

There are a few simple rules of writing emails.
First, assume your conservative old grandmother and your worst professional enemy are going to read it.
Second, think again about Rule #1.

    Similar rule I’ve told my kids they’ve actually paid attention to. Never let anyone take a picture of you that you wouldn’t want your grandmother to see.

For the purpose of disrupting the campaign, it doesn’t matter whether anything incriminating turns up, and Wikileaks doesn’t need to sort them by damage potential.

But it would be amusing if they are saving the worst for last.

All I can say about this whole thing is -Richard Nixon eat your heart and enjoy the Karma.

As I read this article, coincidentally, I am reading Raab’s Five Families. He details the excruciatingly difficult lengths to which law enforcement had to go to tape record mobsters talking in person (bugs) and on the phone (wiretaps).

What a difference a couple decades makes. Now, everyday ho-hum technology, that we all take for granted, provides to anyone with the know-how all there is to get, without laborious steps (other than a court order when LE is involved). Ain’t progress grand.

I know Putin’s no friend to the U.S. and the Russians may or may not have anything to do with the hacking, but right about now, I’d like to buy that guy a beer.
