    Russian Hackers Read Obama’s Unclassified Emails, Officials Say

    WASHINGTON — Some of President Obama’s email correspondence was swept up by Russian hackers last year in a breach of the White House’s unclassified computer system that was far more intrusive and worrisome than has been publicly acknowledged, according to senior American officials briefed on the investigation.The hackers, who also got deeply into the State Department’s unclassified system, do not appear to have penetrated closely guarded servers that control the message traffic from Mr. Obama’s BlackBerry, which he or an aide carries constantly.
    But they obtained access to the email archives of people inside the White House, and perhaps some outside, with whom Mr. Obama regularly communicated. From those accounts, they reached emails that the president had sent and received, according to officials briefed on the investigation.

    Being one of those that believes our government needs more sunlight shed upon it, I'm rooting for those that hack and expose any government's crap. So I guess it depends on what the hacker's intend on doing with the information. Hopefully they will make it public, and as we've been when previous president's documents are fully open for public perusal, we'll find out Obama isn't a perfect person, probably even involved in stuff that's at least borderline illegal if not fully illegal, just like pretty much every other president, except perhaps Carter, seems he stayed pretty clean.

    Only difference here is that we may find out prior to his leaving office. That said, I'd be surprised if they got much more than Snowden did, do you think?

    What you don't seem to understand is that she could have done that if she had two email accounts .. 1 personal and 1 at State.

    So when her emails got hacked we wouldn't find out about it.

    I used to own that outdated BlackBerry. Can someone buy him a iPhone 6 Plus.

    I am sure that is true. The fact that they wouldn't have to let anyone know their private server was hacked is just one of the many reasons it shouldn't be permitted for official government use.
