Everyone post your shocked face.

Well at least we know now where Diane Feinstein got tips on how to leak sh*t.

Maxine Waters responds to report that her staffer doxxed GOP senators, blasts ‘conspiracy theories’

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), one of President Donald Trump’s fiercest critics, has condemned accusations that one of her staffers leaked private information on three Republican senators.

During Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday, an unknown person in the House of Representatives leaked, or “doxxed,” three Republican senators: Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Mike Lee (Utah), and Orrin Hatch (Utah). Personal information, including home and email addresses and cellphone numbers, were posted to each lawmaker’s Wikipedia page.

According to Fox News, the home addresses were correct, but the phone numbers appeared not to be accurate.

Then on Saturday, a series of tweets alleged the IP address of the Wikipedia edits had been traced back to one of Waters’ staff members. The tweets went viral, garnering a mass of attention.

However, Waters said such a possibility could not be further from the truth.

What did she say?

“Lies, lies, and more despicable lies,” Waters said in a statement. “This unfounded allegation is completely false and an absolute lie.”

“I am utterly disgusted by the spread of the completely false, absurd, and dangerous lies and conspiracy theories that are being peddled by ultra-right wing pundits, outlets, and websites who are promoting a fraudulent claim that a member of my staff was responsible for the release of the personal information of Members of the United States Senate on Wikipedia,” she added.

The Los Angeles Democrat explained the Capitol Police have determined the IP address responsible for the Wikipedia edits did not originate from her staff.

“The United States Capitol Police and our internal IT specialist have determined that the IP address in question does not belong to my office or anyone on my staff. The member of my staff — whose identity, personal information, and safety have been compromised as a result of these fraudulent and false allegations — was in no way responsible for the leak of this information,” she said.

“My office has alerted the appropriate authorities and law enforcement entities of these fraudulent claims,” Waters declared. “We will ensure that the perpetrators will be revealed, and that they will be held legally liable for all of their actions that are destructive and dangerous to any and all members of my staff.”

So if Maxi has been able to determine that it wasn't her staff and the IP has been traced back not to her, it should be a simple matter to trace it back to whoever it was.

I doubt she has any clue how the internet works.

I believe this was the same thing Joy Reid said...
