Assange: A "14-Year-Old" Could Have Hacked Podesta's Emails

During an interview with Sean Hannity last night, Julian Assange said a "14-year-old kid" could have hacked into John Podesta's emails.

From The Daily Mail:
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has said a 14-year-old could have hacked into the emails of Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman.

John Podesta's emails were made public by the whistleblowing website and proved to be a hammer blow to the Democrat's election campaign as she lost out to Trump.

In an interview, Assange revealed the campaign chairman's password was 'password' and that he had responded to phishing emails.
The Wikileaks founder said he was 1,000 percent confident the Russians did not hack the Clinton campaign, adding Barack Obama was 'trying to delegitimize the Trump administration'.

'A 14-year-old kid could have hacked Podesta that way,' Assange told Sean Hannity on Fox News.

He added Clinton made 'almost no attempt' to secure her private emails, which featured in more than 50,000 leaked documents published by WIkileaks.

Assange, who was interviewed at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, also said he questioned whether US media outlets would have done the same.

'It's more like, "You rub my back, I'll rub yours. I'll give you information, you'll come to my – I'll invite you to my child's christening or my next big party",' he said in the interview, referring to the Clinton party's relationship with reporters.

President-elect Trump reacted to the news by tweeting: 'Julian Assange said "a 14-year-old could have hacked Podesta" - why was DNC so careless? Also said Russians did not give him the info!'
Note, his password was technically "[email protected]".

Most hilarious of all, as Assange noted, is Podesta's tech guys actually told him to type his password into a blatantly obvious phishing scam website after he asked them if it was safe.

This a great interview with one of the greatest men alive. Rather than threaten Russia with sanctions as neocon traitors are currently doing, Donald Trump should threaten Britain with sanctions if they don't free Assange.
