The Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security is investigating Jeh Johnson and the DHS over their ten attempts at hacking into the Georgia voting site. Curiously, Georgia was one of the states Hillary and the democrats thought they could flip. (Before they found out they couldn’t rig it)
Inspector generals are independent investigators that do not answer to the president or to the head of their agency. During the Obama years, IGs were not given the access to records and documents they have always enjoyed and will be playing catch up under President Trump. IG John Roth wants to know why the DHS violated it’s own protocol by trying to hack Georgia. Heads should roll. It’s curious that it should happen just as Obama and Johnson were trying to gain control of the elections just before Trump kicked Hillary’s ass. Was it an attempt to save her?
A Jan. 17 letter from Roth notified Kemp his office was officially “investigating a series of ten alleged scanning events of the Georgia Secretary of State’s network that may have originated from DHS-affiliated IP addresses.” A firewall in Georgia’s system thwarted each attempt.
Former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson and Kemp have clashed over a federal government designation of election systems as “critical infrastructure.” Kemp called it “political power play to federalize elections.”
Before leaving office Obama tried a complete takeover of elections. Fortunately, that’s one issue that both parties agree is an invitation to corruption by the White House. Expect legislation that will cut off the Executive branch from further interference and back to the design developed by the Founding Fathers, who thought each state should control their own elections.
