A group of hackers known as REvil have supposedly hacked some damning information on some celebrities including President Trump.
They were threatening to release the information if they didn't pay their ransom of $42 million.
According to The Daily Wire,
Cyber hackers claim to have broken into computers at an A-list legal firm, where they say they gathered information on a slew of celebrities — and President Trump.
The group, which calls itself REvil, is demanding $42 million in ransom.
The hackers are threatening to publish “a ton of dirty laundry” on Trump, even though he’s never been a client of the New York City law firm Grubman, Shire, Meiselas and Sacks. The cyber-theft from the law firm reportedly involved 756 gigabytes of sensitive information.
They added, “Mr. Trump, if you want to stay president, poke a sharp stick at the guys, otherwise you may forget this ambition forever. And to you voters, we can let you know that after such a publication, you certainly don’t want to see him as president … The deadline is one week. Grubman, we will destroy your company down to the ground if we don’t see the money.”
There are really about four scenarios that I see could have happened.
First, it is likely that some Democrat, either Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Nancy Pelosi, or Maxine Waters purchased the information from the hacker group and are planning on using the information against the President. All of this may not even be legal for them to do.
Secondly, someone from the Trump team could have purchased the information to save it from getting into the wrong hands.
Thirdly, and my favorite theory, maybe this was all a huge setup against the Democrats to catch them in the act of doing something they shouldn't be doing like buying information against a political opponent from a domestic terrorist organization. They could possibly be waiting for the Democrats to make a move on the information, which is just fake information that they put together in order to catch them.
Or the fourth theory, maybe this is all fake and they really don't have anything.
