With news breaking that Russian-linked hackers made at least five attempts to deliver malware to Hillary Clinton’s private and unsecured email server via a malicious attachment disguised as a traffic citation, it turns out that a Daily Beast editor has been doing a better job spinning away the news than Hillary for America’s Brian Fallon, who is paid to do that sort of thing.
Breaking news: Clinton received spam.

MSNBC’s reporter in charge of covering the GOP race just so happened to apply the same spin.
This is a scary headline for what seems to be "Email account got spam" http://t.co/Z1N2w8msz1

The fictional “just spam” scenario is catching on with Clinton fans. Who hasn’t received a ton of spam emails? — not including, of course, government and military personnel who communicate through secure servers.

@brianefallon Can we get the stats on how many times the government servers tries to get hacked. Probably happening right now LOL
— Kiki (@Kiki1788) October 1, 2015
Probably. And the hackers hardly ever get through, except for the ones who stole 5.6 million fingerprint files, or the ones who managed to get a hold of the personnel files and security clearance forms of around 20 million federal staffers, or the ones who broke into the Pentagon’s unclassified email system. LOL.
.@brianefallon Deserves a Congressional Committee to investigate the type of spam, where it came from & if it was about yoga or gefilte fish

Or plans for Chelsea’s wedding, don’t forget. Or maybe something even more secret.

.@brianefallon Not spam, phishing emails. Do we know if a foreign govt was behind them? Did she click on them?

@brianefallon And classified emails on an unsecue server. Hope she enjoys prison.
