Wednesday at the CNBC Republican Presidential Debate Republican presidential candidate and former Gov. George Pataki (R-NY) said Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton should be disqualified “from being president of the United States” because she had an “unsecured server in her home as Secretary of State,” which he said was no doubt hacked by the Iranians, Russians, and Chinese.
On cyber security Pataki said, “I will put in place a policy where if we know a company, say a Chinese company, is hacking into American companies, stealing trade secrets as we know they do everyday, we will retaliate against that company and say that that company is not going to be allowed to continue to do trade with the United States. I would also look at what we’re doing at the federal level and put in place what Israel has done — one federal agency dealing with cyber security and charged with working across silos to make sure we have the best technology.”
He continued, “I have to tell you something, talking about cyber security, Hillary Clinton put a server, an unsecured server, in her home as Secretary of State. We have no doubt that that was hacked and that state secrets are throughout to the Iranians, the Russians, the Chinese and others. that alone should disqualify her from being president of the United States.”
