I find the timing of this very interesting. Many believe an indictment will be handed down against Hillary Clinton (and possibly her aides) by April...and Clinton IT guy Bryan Pagliano was just granted immunity from prosecution for testifying.
'Guccifer' got the entire ball rolling on the Hillary Clinton email/server investigation...so, perhaps, he knows more and may also receive a deal for testifying.
It looks as if the noose is beginning to close around Hillary's neck.


Guccifer, the infamous Romanian hacker who accessed emails of celebrities and top US officials, will be extradited to the United States, after losing a case in his home country’s top court.
Reuters reports that Lehel will come to the US under an 18-month extradition order, following a request made by the US authorities. Details of the extradition have not been made public, however.

Also released were emails between former Secretary of State Colin Powell and Corina Cretu, a Romanian member of European Parliament, prompting Powell to deny that the two had had an affair.

Perhaps most notably, Lehel was also the first source to uncover Hillary Clinton’s improper use of a private email account while she was Secretary of State, which the FBI is investigating as a potential danger to national security.

In March 2013, the hacker released to RT and several other news outlets the four memos that had been sent to Clinton from her former political adviser Sidney Blumenthal. The memos contain information regarding the September 11, 2012 attacks on the US diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, as well as the January 2013 hostage crisis in In Amenas, Algeria.

Lehel was indicted by the Department of Justice in 2014 on charges of wire fraud, unauthorized access to a protected computer, cyberstalking, aggravated identity theft and obstruction of justice.

This is a legitimate concern.


Lehel was indicted by the Department of Justice in 2014 on charges of wire fraud, unauthorized access to a protected computer, cyberstalking, aggravated identity theft and obstruction of justice.
from OP

So, if he/she was indicted shouldn't the person who was ultimately responsible (HRC) for having the server set up in such a way as to make it visible to hackers suffer the same consequences?

Or does that just make too much sense?

Makes sense.
I'm sure it will be revealed Guccifer was not the only one to hack her, too.

So, let me get this straight.

The NSA has the power to spy on and hack into private citizens accounts that they deem to be affiliated with planning terrorist acts or are a threat to the security of the United States, but private citizens cannot hack into government officials' accounts to expose breaches to the security of the United States.

OK, got it.

The US government is virtually indistinguishable from the Gestapo.

I think he might have some emails that have been conveniently deleted by Hillary Inc.

He has bargaining chips in his pocket.

Looks like Romania is not a sovereign country since it extradites its citizen.

I expect you'll be coming back to this thread when neither of those things happen to admit that you were wrong?

I fail to understand how a person can be extradited to a country they have never set foot in.

This person is not subject to US Law.

This person has no reason to even know US Law.

This person is not a US citizen.

What right has the US to even suggest arresting the person.

Over reach much?

Just think about it for a while!

Is every person on this planet subject to US Law? How? Why?

Just stupid!

I wouldn't have a problem with declaring my support of this sentiment wrong.

Would you have a problem coming back to admit he is right if it does happen?

 


Looks like Romania originally told the US to step off:


The Timisoara Court of Appeal on Friday rejected the FBI’s extradition request for Romanian Marcel Lazar Lehel, a famous hacker known as Guccifer.


Romanian court rejects FBI’s extradition request for famous hacker Guccifer

I wonder what changed?

Says he would garden after reading her emails...
perhaps he buried some away for safe keeping.

Others perhaps he took to the market to sell.

I think there is some other reason he is coming here
than to gain notoriety, perhaps he will be given
limited immunity if he can "dig up" some dirt.

NY Times - Presidential Candidates on the NSA:

Only one of the remaining candidates is against NSA spying (at least domestically) — Bernie Sanders. Read some of these quotes!

Trump:


“I assume when I pick up my telephone, people are listening to my conversations anyway, if you want to know the truth. It’s pretty sad commentary. But I err on the side of security.”


Rubio:


“Allowing any of these programs to expire is a mistake, but that’s what is happening as a consequence of the reckless spreading of misinformation and political posturing.”


Cruz has feigned rolling back surveillance but then he co-sponsored the Freedom Act which preserved the mass surveillance. Hillary supported the Patriot Act reauthorization but has advocated for "transparency" which means absolutely nothing.

Not holding my breathe.

I see another missing airliner that no one can explain 'vanishing'.

According to the website he leaked to, it states he did not contest the extradition.

Hmm...maybe he is getting something in return?


Fom a Bucharest prison, Lazar said that he will waive extradition during a Court of Appeal hearing in two weeks. Six months after Lazar’s indictment on federal charges in June 2014, the U.S. Department of State filed an extradition request with the Romanian government.

U.S. officials are seeking to extradite him “right now, right on the spot,” said Lazar. Since he will not contest those efforts, Lazar added, he expects to be brought to the U.S. within the next few months. Lazar will face trial in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, where he was indicted for fraud, obstruction of justice, cyberstalking, identity theft, and unauthorized access of a protected computer

I have no problem with doing so.

It's not that I put it above the US government to disappear people but he's been in custody for over 2 years, one of the embarrassed hackees was former Romanian Intelligence Service SRI Director George Maior. I'm guessing there's not a lot left that he could expose that would be worth killing him for.

CLinton is spinning her emails big time on this Fox News Town Hall.

The day Clinton quits American politics is the day the cess pool of Washington DC becomes a little less stenchy.

Thats exactly what i was thinking.

Although i hope he had the foresight to set an automated process that would automatically send the emails if he doesnt get a chance to reset the counter.
