New story out now about how former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson (Obama Administration) used unsecured emails to communicate very sensitive material to foreign officials.

And apparently Johnson got phished as well.

Judicial Watch got some of this via a FOIA request.

A Federal Judge has issued orders to several former Administration people to retain emails for possible future FOIA requests.

Looks like the entire Administration was lax and arrogant about emails and sensitive materials.

The irony is DHS was short on homeland security it seems.

Former DHS Sec Used Unsecure Email To Share Sensitive Information With Foreign Officials

The private email used in work instances by former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was not only unsecure, it was used to exchange sensitive information with foreign officials.

As a result of obtaining 216 pages of documents filed by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request, it can be seen that Johnson used his private email to conduct sensitive discussions with high level foreign officials, including conversations he had with a Kuwaiti ambassador and Saudi Arabian Interior Ministry officials.

A federal judge had ordered former top officials at DHS last month, including Johnson, to preserve emails in their private accounts that may be included in the Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

Was this the same J Johnson watching over our elections,
putting back doors of security in local places?

We are so screwed....

Yup.

Just wait till they find some real damning emails.

It will take 6 months for the new Administration to clean up the mess.

All you have to do is go to YouTube and watch his interviews with Congress. He gives me the creeps with his arrogant attitude. The one with Ted Cruz grilling him is very telling.

I meant back doors of "nonsecurity" yikes.
Well, this should prove to be very interesting.

At least it might not take 79 years to get copies?

ETA: Literally, this is huge. The implications
are very serious, it will take a lifetime for
the U.S. to recover from Hillary and now this.

And what we do not know yet?

You are right, all it takes is a few minutes to watch,
see what is really going on.

Looks like we are having a civil war at the government level. A real life house of Cards.
