Source: No ‘coincidence’ Romanian hacker Guccifer extradited amid Clinton probe

The extradition of Romanian hacker “Guccifer” to the U.S. at a critical point in the FBI’s criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email use is “not a coincidence,” according to an intelligence source close to the case.

One of the notches on Guccifer’s cyber-crime belt was allegedly accessing the email account of Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal, one of Clinton’s most prolific advice-givers when she was secretary of state. It was through that hack that Clinton’s use of a personal account — — first came to light.

Former law enforcement and cyber security experts said the hacker, whose real name is Marcel Lehel Lazar, could – now that he’s in the U.S. – help the FBI make the case that Clinton’s email server was compromised by a third party, one that did not have the formal backing and resources of a foreign intelligence service such as that of Russia, China or Iran.

“Because of the proximity to Sidney Blumenthal and the activity involving Hillary’s emails, [the timing] seems to be something beyond curious,” said Ron Hosko, former assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division from 2012-2014.

  1. “Not a coincidence” is hardly grounds for a post or even gossip.

  2. 6:39
    Dream on
    Hillary is going to jail… Not for storing top secret emails on her home brew server but for public corruption by selling her SOS influence through the Clinton Foundation

  3. She will be POTUS.

    GOP is in shambles. Four years ago GOP did some introspection and discovered what they need to do to win They needed to be more inclusive of women and african americans. They did nothing. Thank you Reince.

    The email “scandal” is nothing. We will have 8 years of President Clinton thanks to the dysfunctional GOP.
