Georgia's SOS Asked Trump to investigate the DHS attempt to hack his computers.

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp on Wednesday asked President-elect Donald Trump to investigate the Department of Homeland Security's apparent attempt to hack his office's computer system.

SOS Kemp collaborated with DHS and didn't get any answers.

"Since contacting DHS with these concerns, we have collaborated with the agency and provided extensive, additional information," Kemp wrote. "Last night I received a letter from Secretary Johnson which lacked any specific information as to the attacks' intent or origin despite the fact that many questions remain unanswered."

DHS denied breaking into the SOS kemp's system. IT was all a computer that was mis-configured. We will have to hold on.

DHS has denied it tried to break through the state's computer firewall. An agency spokesman did not immediately return requests for comment Wednesday.

DHS has said previously that it believes an employee was legitimately using databases on the Secretary of State's website and that the employee's computer was configured incorrectly. That configuration mistakenly made it look like the employee was trying to hack into Kemp's systems.

The DHS had told Georgia that they "needed help" with the voting machines and "graciously" offered that help to our Gov. Deal's group was very hardened against that "assistance" as they had the necessary security in place. Proven afterwards by a failed attempt at "hacking" by the DHS. Georgia was concerned by their offer of help due to we rightly figured it would be more of a political "assistance" than for security.

They were "digging for dirt" against our State Government
