The infamous Romanian hacker known as “Guccifer,” speaking exclusively with Fox News, claimed he easily – and repeatedly – breached former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s personal email server in early 2013.
"For me, it was easy ... easy for me, for everybody," Marcel Lehel Lazar, who goes by the moniker "Guccifer," told Fox News from a Virginia jail where he is being held.
So why has nothing come out?

Excellent question! Releasing data confirms a compromise or leak. Leaks confirmed tend to be quickly plugged. The release can also produce an audit trail and provide insights into one's interest in particular areas or topics. Some things are simply better memory holed, but not forgotten.
Besoeker, what you say makes perfect sense for hackers with agendas, like state intelligence agencies, but not for the publicity hound hackers like Guccifer - of whom there are probably many. I have since seen claims that the server was not 'easily' hacked for very long, and the later security level was only vulnerable to the more skilled hackers.
Maybe because the Russians, Chinese, et al are equally stunned that Trump is the Trunk nominee. Their info was only useful to manipulate or ruin Hillary up to the election. That has very little use if the alternative may be someone they fear or just want to avoid far more than the compromised Clinton Inc.
The one Sidney Blumenthal e-mail that I remember seeing last year was clearly a TS note. It referenced sources...and definitely gave targets to the counter intel folks on the other side. Clinton and Blumenthal are clearly incompetent and thru their incompetence and laziness sources lives were put in danger and further...suppressed any other sources from signing up. Lives were most likely lost and valuable intel most definitely lost. All because dumbazz Clinton is too arrogant and lazy to walk into a SCIF or log on to a SECRET machine.
[Al Ahram] Donald Trump, the de facto Republican nominee in the race for the White House, said Wednesday he wants a running mate with political experience who can work well with Congress.
Trump said his pick for vice president -- unlike the billionaire real estate mogul himself, who is political novice -- will be someone well-versed in Washington politics.
"It will probably be a person with political experience," Trump said in an interview with television broadcaster ABC the morning after his chief remaining rival in the race, Texas senator Ted Cruz, abandoned his White House bid.
"I would like to have somebody that could truly be good with respect to dealing with the Senate, dealing with Congress, getting legislation passed."
Trump seized a resounding victory in Tuesday's primary in Indiana and is expected to easily scoop up the 1,237 delegates necessary to officially secure the nomination.
His brash style, stances on issues that depart from party orthodoxy and personal attacks have divided Republicans.
Trump's choice of running mate -- a decision generally announced shortly before the party's national convention that culminates the nomination process -- could help him sway skeptics.
This year's Republican National Convention will take place in Cleveland, kept in touch with the world by Obamaphone, ...was ruled by a Democrat machine from 1942 through 1971. After the river caught fire during the administration of Carl Stokes they tried a Republican, then went back to being Democrats when the party hacked up Dennis Kucinich ... , Ohio in July.
Trump declined to divulge any VP names on Wednesday.
"I'm considering a lot of people, to be honest," he told the "Fox and Friends" morning show.
My preference is Newt. Trump will pick the best in order to secure the best deal to get things done as fast as possible. His other choices will be very interesting. Things will all come together seamlessly if my hunch is correct. It will appear dramatic compared to O. As in any company leadership sets the tone throughout the entire company or country.

If he puts together a running mate and cabinet that is experienced, but willing to fight to get things done instead of the constant limp wristed selfish PC fucks we get now, I might have to reconsider voting for the man.
...Trump doubles down on non-citizen Muslim ban...
Trump's travel ban proposal is not just "non-citizen" Muslims. He clearly said ALL Muslims. And again, he refused to qualify. No worries...propaganist rags like the 'Daily Mail' will fill in the blanks for the rubes.
This is why it's a very bad idea for outside officials to publicly declare opinions before we've made our decision. A great many others may also find themselves in the same position, regardless who wins.
[BREITBART] During an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, former Mexican President Vicente Fox apologized Wednesday for the vulgar language he has used regarding GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the southern border and invited the likely Republican nominee to Mexico to see the border from the other side.
Earlier this year, Fox said that he would not pay for Trump’s "f*cking wall," and called Trump ""Ignorant ... crazy ... egocentric ... nasty ... [a] false prophet." Trump then called on Fox to apologize.
On Wednesday, he did so -- in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News -- and added that he wanted Trump to come to Mexico to see the border from the other side.
"I apologize. Forgiveness is one of the greatest qualities that human beings have, is the quality of a compassionate leader. You have to be humble. You have to be compassionate. You have to love thy neighbor," Fox explained to Breitbart News while sitting in the hotel of the J.W. Marriott in Santa Monica, Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, on Wednesday afternoon.
"Love your nation. Love the world," he added. "Yes, I’m humble enough as leadership be, [a] compassionate leader. If I offended you, I’m sorry. But what about the other way around?"
"I don’t think he should follow the strategy of attacking others, offending others, to get to his purpose. There are other ways and means of doing it," Fox stressed, adding, "I invite him to come to Mexico and to see what Mexico is all about."
Fox stressed the important trade ties the two countries have, noting that the U.S. benefits from Mexican labor and has much larger trade deficits with other countries.
He urged Trump to be more responsible, and suggested that he could help: "I can convince him to think intelligently" about trade and other issues, he explained.
If I was Trump, I would ignore this until I won. Then make a statement like, "I'm glad President Fox is willing to work with the United States and our government to find ways for our countries to work together. The fees on transfers will still happen to put a wall in place. Good fences make good neighbors."

The International Monetary Fund or whatever just released a financial asse$sment of Central and South American countries. Mexico is doing the better compared to the rest "due to their close proximity to the U.S."
The Fox realizes where the hen hpuse.

If he is elected President, I want Trump to never visit ANY foreign nation. Make them all come to us. Have all the meetings in places that are a smack in the face to whoever is visiting. Something to offend everybody. For a kickoff, cancel all the "inauguration balls" and instead televise the recinding of all executive orders of the last 8 years...

M. Murcek----You are spot on! Thinking the same thought. Trump's first action as president needs to be to recind all of O's executive orders.
