FBI indicts mysterious Iranians in alleged election fraud case

Just The NewsDuring the dizzying days after the November 2020 election, the Homeland Security cyber-security chief was fired by a frustrated President Donald Trump, then went on national TV to insist the election was fully secure.

"There was no indication or evidence that there was any sort of hacking or compromise of election systems on, before or after November 3," ex-Cyber-Security and Infrastructure Agency Chief Chris Krebs declared on "60 Minutes."

On Thursday, nearly a year later, federal prosecutors in New York unsealed a dramatic indictment that conflicts with that clean bill of health.

The indictment stated that two Iranian hackers successfully hacked into a state computer election system, stole voter registration data and used it to carry out a cyber-intimidation campaign that targeted GOP members of Congress, Trump campaign officials and Democratic voters in the November 2020 election.

What magic has to happen for the FBI to investigate election law violations?

The alleged hackers, who are not in custody and likely never will be, and are alleged to be Iranian government agents, are said to be pro-Trump. Because Iran really, really wanted a Trump second term?

You may remember when Mueller charged mysterious Russians in Russia with "hacking" (by which he meant buying ads on Facebook and running fake Twitter identities) to deflect attention from the fact that Clinton was conspiring with actual Russians to frame Trump for conspiring with Russians?

In my opinion, the only thing that makes this newsworthy is that it does suggest some elements of the Dem alliance are getting nervous about Durham. Probably the Clintons, who are now out of government and exposed.

The FBI will not touch legitimate election fraud no matter how long a pole you give them.
