FBI and DNI: Iran interfering in election to damage Trump, sending fake emails and other cyber activities
Purported threatening emails from “Proud Boys” were Iranian fakes. Russia also has voter information, but so far has not taken any actions.
The Director of National Intelligence just gave an emergency statement. Iran and Russia obtained voter information, and Iran has been sending fake emails trying to sow discord and damage Trump. Russia has not yet taken any action.
While they didn’t say it, it appears that threatening emails supposedly from the “Proud Boys” actually were Iranian fakes.
WaPo confirms the “Proud Boys” emails were from Iran:
The U.S. government has concluded that Iran is behind a series of threatening emails arriving this week in the inboxes of Democratic voters, according to two U.S. officials.
Department of Homeland Security officials told state and local election administrators on a call Wednesday that a foreign government was responsible for the online barrage, according to the U.S. officials and state and local authorities who participated in the call, who all spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the matter’s sensitivity. A DHS official also said authorities had detected holes in state and local election websites and instructed those participating to patch their online services.
The emails claimed to be from the Proud Boys, a far-right group supportive of President Trump, but appeared instead to be a deceptive campaign making use of a vulnerability in the organization’s online network.
First divulged on Tuesday by local law enforcement and elections officials in Florida and Alaska, the emails were soon turned over to federal authorities, according to U.S. officials.
The messages appeared to target Democrats using data from digital databases known as “voter files,” some of which are commercially available. They told recipients the Proud Boys were “in possession of all your information” and instructed voters to change their party registration and cast their ballots for Trump.
Meanwhile, this sleazy Dem operative who used to be press secretary in the Clinton White House is spreading misinformation.
DNI says Iran acting againt Trump, not for, and Russia taken not action. Yet this blue check tweets that Iran trying to help Trump. How is this misinformation not flagged by @twittersupport @twitter @jack https://t.co/qQey29wgjt

With this news, I want to see a Trump landslide now more than ever.
that makes two of us, brother.
Especially since we. know the Democrats are Colluding with Iran, Russia, and Communist China!
A Hacker On The Darkweb Is Selling The Information Of 186 Million U.S. Registered Voters Online…

Isn’t that about all the voters in the U.S.??????
lying hacks gotta lie.
F the MSM!
Iran needs several of their hydroelectric dams knocked out.
Still waiting for someone—anyone—to articulate a theory, no matter how unlikely, why any foreign countries would want to elect PDJT, or for that matter any Republican rather than some surrender-monkey Democrat?
that’s because there isn’t one.
And, Facebook, Google and Twitter are interfering with the election Orders of Magnitude more than the Russians or Iranians.
Not only that, but they are the vehicle through with foreign governments are “interfering” in our election.
WHAT is the FBI going to do about it?.
Sound of crickets.
Find a way to ignore it.
This was a gift to The Ho and Joe campaign. The Russians were obtaining registered voter info in 2016, and IIRC 2012, 2008, etc. And you might notice that the info about the Iranians is essentially being ignored by the MSM in preference to Russia, RUSSIA, RUSSIA.
Probably faked emails from democrats in reality. They’re only using the iranians as a cover. Heck they lied about the ann arbor millionaire saying his bar was going down because of PDJT. Until everyone found out he’s richer than most and the bar was plaything for him.
Hoping not only for a red wave, but a red tidal wave to sweep away the dems from the control of the house and a bigger repub majority in the senate.
The days when you had to communicate by letter or telephone, and when you had to get information by cracking open a book, produced smarter people. A start could be to eliminate social media. Want to puke after watching Big Tech commercials on TV. Makes you yearn for car commercials.
In other words, Iran would be out of luck, and many others that try to manipulate and deceive.
Did Iran put the child-porn on Hunter’s laptop and did Iran stick their arm up Hunter’s backside and make him tell Biden?
Ace of Spades has the story. Wow. That’s quite the October Surprise.
Ace is speculating whether Hunter was doing more than looking at the younger set. There’s some bombs dropping on that one. We’ll see if the FBI covers for him like a Kennedy.
Proud Boys are not really far right (or left or in the middle). They have no ideology. Their major shictk it say the opposite of whenever someone else is sending violent message. It is more a group that advocates free speech, and they like to get physically in the middle of that issue.
Let’s see. We have an account associated with the Iranian government sending out emails purporting to be from Trump supporters and that’s improper election interference. But a super PAC associated with Chuck Schumer is responsible for a tweet forwarding a false letter falsely claiming the Iowa Farm Bureau had withdrawn support for a Senate candidate, that’s OK, right?
And Iran? Iran’s so far away!
However, the threatening e-mails being received by Trump contributors are, apparently, authentic.
Wow, Joe Lockheart really has no respect for our intelligence at all! Iran wanting to help Trump after everything he’s done to them, really Joe?! What’s next: gonna try and sell your readers some oceanfront property in Wyoming?
Does this mean that if Joe wins we can call his election “illegitimate” for having been assisted by “foreign interference”?
Unanimous. EV *and* PV
We should deport the Democrats to Iran. Let them destroy that country instead of this one.
