Macron Lied About Russian Hacking
As many suspected Macron’s outlandish claims on the eve of the French election that he had been hacked were blatant lies.
French investigators have found no traces of a Russian hacking group in the attack on President Emmanuel Macron’s election campaign, in which thousands of emails were leaked, the head of the French government’s cyber security agency told AP.
In an interview on Thursday, Guillaume Poupard, the head of the National Cybersecurity Agency of France (ANSSI), said the hack was “so generic and simple that it could have been practically anyone.”
Emmanuelle Macron’s team confirmed that it suffered a massive hacking attack after a trove of internal documents was released online just a day before the final round of elections. It was all Russia according to the dim-witted Macron.
The Russians Did It!!!
That was the cry from the Macron camp in what is now exposed as a manipulation of voters in a direct effort to win votes.
Macron’s political movement, En Marche!, has released a statement confirming that the candidate and his campaign team were hacked.
“The En Marche movement has been a victim of a massive and coordinated hacking attack leading to the spreading this evening on social media of internal information of a diverse nature (emails, documents, contracts),” the statement said.
According to the team, “those circulating these documents are adding many false documents to authentic documents in order to sow doubt and disinformation.”
The release came “in the last hour of the official campaign” and this hack is “clearly a matter of democratic destabilization,” the statement added.
“Throughout the campaign, En Marche! has constantly been the party the most targeted by such attempts, in an intense and repeated fashion. The aim of those behind this leak is, all evidence suggests, to hurt the En Marche! party several hours before the second round of the French presidential election,” it continued.
And the Russians are Evil, Even the Journalists
Macron last week delivered the world of journalism a severe blow when he repeated an alarming explanation as to why RT reporters were banned from his campaign headquarters during his electoral showdown against Marine Le Pen in April.
“They didn’t act like the media, like journalists. They behaved like deceitful propaganda,” Macron told the conference. “I have always had an exemplary relationship with foreign journalists, but they have to be real journalists.” that was also a lie of course.
