How did they illegally access the computers? What was illegal about it? They were political memos, not a 'government document' with any official
purpose, nothing classified.
Who has worked in a networked enviroment, able to see other computers/servers/resources through the 'network neighborhood' icon on your desktop?
That's basically what he did. He clicked a share on a server and found these memos, unprotected, in plain sight. heck, he could have been searching
for something and brought up the memo. Almost like someone putting a classified memo on the internet, it comes up in a search engine for anyone to
see, and the viewer is to be held liable??
Snooping? Sure. Bad taste? Yes. Illegal? No.
This is a cover-up. It's covering up a) poor computing security within our government's highest offices b) the corruption in judicial appointment
politics (by both sides).
