Floridian admits hacked Clinton charity
ORLANDO, Fla. — An Ocoee man pleaded guilty Thursday to hacking the Clinton Foundation in the pursuit of a conspiracy theory that the organization might be funding jihadist groups.
Timothy Sedlak, 43, is facing up to five years in prison on computer-hacking charges. Federal prosecutors say Sedlak attempted to access the computers at the organization by trying hundreds of thousands of times to log into employees’ email accounts in 2015.
An official with the Department of Justice in New York, where Sedlak was prosecuted, refused to release the name of the charity organization, saying doing so would go against their normal practice. However, the name of the charity was revealed in court documents online, which were later redacted by prosecutors and put back online.
