Julian Assange has revealed that Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman’s password was “password.”
In an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday, the WikiLeaks founder said a 14-year-old could have hacked into Podesta’s computer without problems, adding that hackers unearthed the campaign chairman’s password because he responded to phishing emails.
“We published several…emails which show Podesta responding to a phishing email. Podesta gave out that his password was the word ‘password.’ His own staff said this email that you’ve received, this is totally legitimate. So this is something…a 14-year-old kid could have hacked Podesta that way.”

According to a CNN report, Podesta’s email account was hacked when he got a March 19 email from “Google” alleging that someone had his password and was trying to get into his account from Ukraine. Podesta’s assistant, Sara Latham, had forwarded the email to a Clinton campaign IT official, Charles Delavan, who deemed the message legit and urged the 67-year-old chairman to change his password, including the “Google” link where he could get it done.
“John needs to change his password immediately, and ensure that two-factor authentication is turned on his account…It is absolutely imperative that this is done ASAP.”
