Student Faces Two Years Behind Bars For Trying To Hack Into Trump's Tax Records

CYBERSCOOP
Written by Jeff Stone
Sep 9, 2019

Excerpt:

A Philadelphia man has pleaded guilty in connection with a scheme to trick a U.S. government website into serving up the president’s tax returns.

Andrew Harris, a student who attended Haverford College, admitted in court last week that he used a school computer and the Free Application for Student Aid website to try to access Donald Trump’s financial records. By opening a FAFSA account in the name of a Trump family member and using Trump’s Social Security number, Harris and another student apparently thought the FAFSA page would populate with Trump’s tax data. The attempt failed when the pair found a username and password for Trump already existed.

Harris, 24, pleaded guilty on Sept. 5 to two misdemeanor counts of computer fraud. He faces two years in federal prison and a $200,000 fine. Another man, 22-year-old Justin Hiemstra of Minnesota, pleaded guilty last month. FAFSA is run by the Department of Education, but it has connections to Internal Revenue Service systems so students can import tax information as part of the federal student aid application process.

William J. Brennan, Harris’ attorney, previously told the Philadelphia Inquirer the case “was a ‘Wayne’s World’ scene gone awry.’” Brennan has maintained that the attempted hack was a college prank, saying Harris and Hiemstra “were Wayne and Garth in a blue Pacer with a dumb idea and a mixed run of luck.”

The idiots are now prison-bound over something that would've been pointless and useless as a means to "get" Trump anyway.

Good GAWD leftists are mindless morons.

He's dumber than a box of rocks but 2 years seems a bit excessive for misdemeanors.

I'm surprised it's ONLY a misdemeanor. As a Dep't Energy contractor I can assure you: Hack into a DoE site and it's a minimum of a 5-year felony.

I agree with ya completely. I couldn't believe they weren't felonies.

With all the known leaks from the Deep State over Trump's time as President, does anyone remotely think that if there was a "gotcha" in his taxes that it would not have been conveniently "accidentally" leaked by now??

It's not nearly enough.

He deserves at least 5 years or more and this should have been a felony.

:exactly:

Yet they still make shidt up and run with it as if it were the truth and nothing happens to these criminals that do it.

Just because it's political it should not mean that these false accusers should not be liable for damages, yet they aren't.
