Hillary Clinton to give keynote speech at cybersecurity summit (yes, really)
Former Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will deliver a guest speech at an upcoming cybersecurity conference. Yes, the same Hillary Clinton who kept confidential emails on an unsecured server.
Clinton will deliver a keynote speech at the cybersec summit in October, organized by the security firm FireEye. After her speech, Clinton will take part in a Q&A discussion with FireEye CEO Kevin Mandia on the “geopolitical landscape and its implications for global cyber security today.”Also on rt.com ‘Still salty about losing’: Twitter users stunned by Hillary calling for China to hack Trump
The announcement was met with howls of laughter online. After all, it’s not like Clinton stored mountains of classified emails – including scores marked ‘secret’ and ‘top secret’ – on an unsecure server in her basement during her tenure as Secretary of State. Oh no, wait, she did.
“People are going to pay between $795 and $2000 to listen to a presentation(mostly coughing) from a person who was hacked by everyone on Earth,” jibed Carpe Donktum, a pro-Trump meme-maker.

Um, Hillary Clinton keynoting a cyber security event makes about as much sense as Bill Clinton leading a marriage retreat. https://t.co/ACSEpr98ex— Nate Madden (@NateOnTheHill) May 30, 2019

Clinton’s personal server, hosted at her residence in New York, was subject to repeated intrusion attempts from Germany, China, and South Korea in 2014, as well as an allegedly successful attempt from infamous Romanian hacker ‘Guccifer,’ according to federal investigators who probed her email use – but ultimately declined to charge her with a crime during the 2016 election campaign.
Former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Michael T. Flynn, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, and former CIA deputy director Michael Morell have all said that foreign governments likely accessed the server. Former NSA Director Michael Hayden said that he “would lose all respect for a whole bunch of foreign intelligence agencies if they weren't sitting back, paging through the emails.”Also on rt.com Clinton attacks Trump and Giuliani in bizarre Scrabble-themed tweet
Clinton initially said she held no classified information on her server, and kept her work emails there out of “convenience.” Later, as the FBI launched an investigation, Clinton deleted tens of thousands of emails, and laughed off the suggestion that she “wiped” her server of incriminating information to dodge the probe.
“What? Like with a cloth or something?” she joked fed to reporters. “I don’t know how it works digitally at all.”
