THE ROMANIAN HACKER WHO EXPOSED HILLARY CLINTON SENTENCED TO 52 MONTHS IN PRISON

Romanian hacker Marcel Lazar, 44 a.k.a "GUCCIFER" who was arrested in Romanian in 2014 has been handed a 52 months sentence in a U.S prison. He was sentenced by a federal court in Alexandria, Virginia.

He (Lazar) pleaded guilty to some of the charges levied against him in May after he was extradited from Romania.


Lazar confessed to breaching Clinton's private server at her home in Chappaqua, New York but law enforcement and national security officials say that claim is meritless. 

Lazar is reported to have hacked about 100 people between 2012 to 2014. His victims include a number of political figures.

Clinton, the Presidential candidate for the Democrats for the November 8 2016 U.S Presidential election has come under heavy scrutiny by conspiracy theorists, anti-Clinton indiviuals and especially her political opponents Donald Trump, the Republicans who are questioning/doubting her honesty if elected.

Another entity called "Guccifer 2.0" claiming to be a Romanian hacker emerged in June and began taking credit for data breaches at the Democratic National Committee and Democratic Congress Campaign Committee but the cyber security experts believe "Guccifer 2.0" is a front for Russian intelligence services intended to spread confusion about the hacks against the Democratic Party.
