The Democratic National Committee obviously needs to hire a full-time cybersecurity expert. I would suggest this person. She is currently available (her last job fell through).

Shouldnt they be telling this to the WHOLE country ?

Or might that be seen as betrayal to their Fellow Travelers ?

I am using a ZTE Maven phone because it was $40 instead of iPhones costing several hundred dollars.

I hope the Chicoms spent hours listening to my conversations and learned nothing.
