    As reported, get yer popcorn ready.

    Democratic Party officials reportedly are bracing for the possibility that another batch of damaging or embarrassing internal emails — the kind that cost the party chairman her job on the eve of the Democratic National Convention — could become public before the November presidential election.

    fear reportedly comes as officials with knowledge of a Russian cyberattack that targeted Democratic politicians and organizations told The New York Times that the breach was bigger than first thought and exposed the private email accounts of more than 100 party officials and groups — including the personal email accounts of Hillary Clinton’s key campaign officials.

    The apparent wider breach reportedly has prompted the FBI to broaden its investigation, and agents have begun notifying top Democratic officials that the Russians may have breached their personal accounts, the Times reported.

    An earlier release of emails just days before the party convention in Philadelphia cost Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz her job as party chairman, while party CEO Amy Dacey; chief finance officer Brad Marshall; and communications director Luis Miranda resigned last week.

    I think it's funny they blame Russia without any evidence. And they're worried about Trump ticking off ISIS? It's comical. It's probably some 20 something Bernie supporter in his basement that got ahold of some Russian made malware and he's just having a field day with the DNCs weak cybersecurity.

    The FBI and Justice Dept. are cave-in's and hacks to the corrupt system. Doubt anything will happen now. They count on the voters to be blind and not care.

    If anybody is in any doubt as to whether the DNC is incompetent, look no further than this. The FBI warned the DNC of potential breaches one year ago. They took no action.

    Veeeery light in security; cavalier about it, actually. Thus far, as we'e seen, from the Secretary of State on down.
