- US House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi says she has been flooded with “obscene and sick” calls and text messages!!
- A hacker who calls himself Guccifer 2.0 took credit for posting the information Friday night.
- He had claimed responsibility for the recent hack of Democratic National Committee emails, which roiled the Democratic National Convention last month.
- Pelosi said she was flying from Florida to California when she heard about the posting of information such as cell phone numbers.
US House Democratic Leader sent a letter to colleagues warning them to take precautions and said she was changing her phone number after a hacker identified as “Guccifer 2.0” posted the personal mobile phone numbers and email addresses on Friday.
“This is a sad course of events, not only for us, but more importantly for our country,” said Pelosi, who earlier in the week blamed Russia for the cyber attack and called it an “electronic Watergate” akin to the 1972 burglary at Democratic Party headquarters that ultimately brought down Republican President Richard Nixon.
