Chinese company reportedly hacked Clinton’s server, got copy of every email in real-time Adam Shaw | Fox News

A Chinese state-owned company reportedly hacked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email server, then inserted code that forwarded them a copy of virtually every email she sent or received after that — a revelation President Trump is demanding be investigated.

The Daily Caller reported that the firm operating in the D.C. area wrote code that was then embedded in the server and generated a “courtesy copy” for almost all her emails — which was then forwarded to the Chinese company.

The code reportedly was discovered in 2015 by the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), which then warned FBI officials of the intrusion.

A source briefed on the matter confirmed to Fox News the details of the Caller’s reporting, and said that the ICIG was so concerned by the revelation that officials drove over to the FBI to inform agents — including anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok — of the development after it was discovered via the emails’ metadata.

The source told Fox News the hack was from a Chinese company, describing it as a front for Chinese intelligence.

A second source briefed on the matter told Fox News that officials outside of the FBI indicated code on the Clinton server suggested a foreign source was receiving copies of emails in real time.

The hacking report caught the attention late Tuesday of President Trump, who warned that the FBI and DOJ should act or “their credibility will be forever gone.”

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying responded to Trump’s tweet, saying: “This isn’t the first time we’ve heard similar kinds of allegations.”

“China is a staunch defender of cybersecurity. We firmly oppose and crack down on any forms of internet attacks and the stealing of secrets,” she said, according to Reuters.

The ICIG and the FBI declined to comment.

Clinton’s office did not respond to a request for comment, but a spokesman told The Daily Caller, “The FBI spent thousands of hours investigating, and found no evidence of intrusion. That’s a fact.”

Fox News reported in March that Strzok was advised of an irregularity in the metadata of Clinton’s server that suggested a possible breach, but no follow-up action was taken.

Further, a May 2016 email from Strzok, obtained by Fox News earlier this year, said “we know foreign actors obtained access” to some Clinton emails, including at least one “secret” message “via compromises of the private email accounts” of Clinton staffers.

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, asked Strzok in a House Oversight Committee hearing in July whether he was briefed about an anomaly on Clinton’s emails found by ICIG officials.

“You were given that information, and you did nothing with it,” Gohmert told Strzok in July.

Strzok said he remembered meeting with the ICIG officials, but did not remember the contents of the meeting and that every allegation was forwarded to experts who looked at it carefully.

“If there was a lead, I gave it to the team,” Strzok said as part of a heated back-and-forth between the two. Strzok was fired this month after controversy surrounding anti-Trump texts he sent to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was having an affair.

Reached by phone Tuesday, Gohmert told Fox News on Tuesday that the emails were obtained by a foreign country’s intelligence, but he declined to name the country in question. He said there was no sign that Strzok and the FBI had taken any action when informed by the ICIG, and no indication that they even informed Clinton.

He told Fox News he was surprised that his questioning about it in the Strzok hearing in July didn’t generate more media attention, but noted that the press seized on a comment he made shortly afterward when he asked Strzok, “How many times did you look into your wife’s eyes and lie about Lisa Page?”

    America, as it was intended to be, “The home of the free people” has succumbed to the powerful elites who have already stuffed their bank accounts with unearned tax payer monies from every sector of the country. The reason they “all” collectively want to rid the nation of the constitution the country was built on and believe in, is to protect what they have all stolen from all tax paying citizens of America. In our Constitution, it gives the people the power and authority to remove the current representatives from their respective offices and clean house with new highly monitored representatives most likely. My guess will be that there will be no “Lobbyists” or people of their sort, ever allowed on legislative grounds ever or any kind of contact. I doubt that such a take over will ever happen thru anything less than a devastating civil war. America will never be the same as it was before the company (The Federal Reserve) who contracted to handle the United States Treasury monetary policies, took over the raping of the American people and economy. This event was supported by President Woodrow Wilson in Dec.1913.
    If you think illegal immigration ; Homelessness ; and the cost of surviving is out of hand now, wait until the next generation of under educated activists take over.
