Barack Obama has been on vacation ever since he was forced to hand over power to Donald Trump. Unfortunately for Obama, however, Trump just did something that is likely to ruin the rest of his relaxing holiday.
The Daily Caller reported that Trump’s inspector general has opened an investigation into why Obama’s Department of Homeland Security hacked into the Georgia state governmental network, including its election system. Inspector General John Roth is trying to figure out why DHS officials broke protocol with a whopping 10 attacks on the system that is overseen by Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.
Kemp happens to be an outspoken critic of Obama administration’s attempt to designate local and state election machinery as part of federal “critical infrastructure.”
Roth penned a letter to Kemp on January 17 informing him that he was “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.” Thankfully, a firewall in the Georgia system was able to thwart each attempt.
