Lazar referred to the allegations as part of "a fake cyber war." He went on to say that "Americans are crazy about the Russian thing and that Russians are invading the United States." He suggested the allegations are overblown because of Cold War sensitivities. "It's crazy . . . it's this hysteria you know?"
Lazar had been sentenced to prison in both the U.S. and Romania for his hacking and taunting of major celebrity and political figures. He will finish his sentence in Romania in 2019 and returned here to the U.S. where he faces 52 months after pleading guilty to two counts of a nine-count indictment.
He was the first to expose Hillary Clinton's use of the private Clintonmail.com address which ultimately led to the identification of her personal account illegally used for all government business and for which she has not been charged due to her last name.
The FBI and Obama administration are now turning their attention to the alleged Russian hacking of Democratic accounts, one of which (Podesta's) was "password protected" using the word 'password' as the password, something even the idiots on The View would have known was a bad idea. The administration is blaming the hacking for the reason Clinton lost the election, not that she called Trump supporters a "basket of deplorables" and that she sucks as a candidate.
Imagine how stupid John Podesta is to have used 'password' as his password. Then to have clicked on a link that phished for his information.
Imagine how arrogant the DNC and Clinton leadership is to say the things they did and to conspire to beat Sanders and make fun of him.
Blaming Russia for outing the truth is simply conflating what is important--the truth!
