Hackers breach Trump campaign website, threaten to release 'evidence' of crimes

The Trump campaign’s website was briefly hacked late Tuesday, with the culprits posting a typo-riddled message on the site threatening to release “evidence” of the president’s “criminal involvement” in a supposed scheme to sway the 2020 election.

The hackers, whose identity were not immediately known, only managed to crack into the Trump website’s “about” page. The rest of the website remained intact.

Within minutes of the breach being discovered, the Trump campaign took down the site, but not before the Daily News and other outlets were able to screen-grab the ominous message.

“This site was seized,” the message claimed in bold text place underneath the insignias of the FBI and the Justice Department. “Multiple devices were compromised that gave full access to trump and relatives … we have evidence that completely discredits mr trump as a president. proving his criminal involvement and coorperation (sic) with foreign actors manipulating the 2020 elections.”

1. Doubtful

Why would a website contain such information? Makes no sense.

2. Unless the Pumpkinhead Supreme uses the same password for other things.

Which you know he does. In fact, I seem to recall a few days ago that one of his sites got hacked with the incredibly complicated password "MAGA2020". It would have taken millenia for the most sophisticated supercomputer in the world to crack that, and someone stumbled on it by sheer luck.

5. A false flag operation is a possibility

Perhaps to gin up sympathy for the unfortunate hackees. Wouldn’t be surprised if the ‘evidence’ turns out to be a ham handed attempt to portray rumpco in a favorable light.
