JOHN DURHAM: DNS company employees ‘exploited’ access to Trump White House server

Employees of a DNS company exploited their sensitive access to the White House Executive Office of the President’s server to dig up dirt on Trump, according to John Durham:

THE HILL – John Durham, the special counsel appointed under former President Trump to investigate the FBI’s probing of Russian interference in the 2016 election, alleged in court that a tech executive “exploited” access to White House data in order to find damning information about Trump.

In a court filing submitted Friday, Durham’s office said that the executive, who is referred to in legal filings only as “Tech Executive-1” but has been identified in news reports as Rodney Joffe, used his company’s access to nonpublic government domain name system (DNS) data through a pending cybersecurity contract as he was analyzing supposed links between the Trump Organization and a Russian bank.

“Tech Executive-1’s employer, Internet Company-1, had come to access and maintain dedicated servers for the EOP as part of a sensitive arrangement whereby it provided DNS resolution services to the EOP,” Durham’s office wrote, using an acronym for the White House’s Executive Office of the President.

“Tech Executive-1 and his associates exploited this arrangement by mining the EOP’s DNS traffic and other data for the purpose of gathering derogatory information about Donald Trump.”



I know it’s not exactly the same thing, but this reminds me of when someone with access to Joe The Plumbers private government data leaked it in 2008 to hurt him because he asked Obama about socialism. This is exactly what leftists do in order to attack their enemies.

And in this case it’s far more egregious because it’s employees from a company that has been entrusted with very private and sensitive access to the president’s server in the Oval Office. This couldn’t be a greater betrayal and the people who did this should end up in prison for a long time.
