FBI Warned Illinois Republican Party That Its Email System May Have Been Hacked

The FBI warned the Illinois Republican Party in June that hackers may have targeted GOP political email accounts.

But party officials said the FBI never mentioned potential links to the investigation of Russia trying to hack America’s political system, the Chicago Triune reports, citing the state GOP’s executive director. 

Nick Klitzing said the party found of its 18 emails on DCLeaks.com, which appears to be connected to a unit controlled by Russia’s military intelligence agency, GRU.

But the emails in question largely belong to inactive or rarely used accounts andante back to 2015.

Republicans are trying to distance themselves from the hacking controversy after the CIA said there’s substantial evidence that Russia was involved in targeting the emails of the Democratic National Committee.

Apparently ex-Secret Service agent James Bartee learned a thing or two about fighting tough in politics while protecting politicians.

The Independent Mail in South Carolina reports that he came out swinging during a speech Monday before a Republican party forum, and questioned the moral fitness of his three opponents for sheriff in Oconee County, S.C.

Without naming names of his three opponents, the paper reported, he asked the crowd of about 200 if they wanted to elect someone who had been fired, had been accused of beating his wife, had fathered two illegitimate children, had been accused of stealing drugs or drug money, had been accused of being lazy on the job or of having conducted sexual affairs while on the job.
