Repeated attempts at unauthorized access to computer systems is called “hacking” and that’s a crime that should be prosecuted.

Saul attempted to log into work from his home on Monday – only to reportedly discover he’d been blocked from the agency’s computer systems.

Isn’t an unauthorized attempt to access a controlled government computer system a felony offense? I forget the stupid acronym for the law, but it is.

Showing up for work on Monday, pretending like the firing never happened. He’s trying to pull a Costanza.

I hear there is an opening for a CFO at the Trump Organization. Perhaps Saul should send in his resume. Wanting to keep money from seniors should at least get his foot in the door.

And one more time, the Republicans jump into the fray accusing everyone not themselves of ‘politicizing’ … something.

You have to wonder what egregious misdeeds he’s so desperate to remain in office in order to cover for? Personal corruption is just a given when dealing with Trump appointees.

Standard practice is to pull login and badge privileges within 24 hours. I assume he wasn’t able to by 5PM ET last Friday.

These Trumpster yoyos really don’t understand technology, do they? It’s actually hysterical that he thought his log on would still work.

The IT staff likely cut him off 5pm Friday. Being management, he doesn’t work weekends so didn’t know.

Which was something Larry David actually did. IIRC he loudly and profanely quit as a writer for SNL on a Friday, decided it was a big mistake and his friend who was the model for Kramer told him he should just walk back in Monday like nothing had happened, so that’s what he did.

I understand Colludy has lots of free time, just need to find a venue that hasn’t yet suspended his license.

In this case, making repeated attempts to gain access to a computer system is called being a hack.

I have every confidence that there are much more insidious crimes this hack has committed, in the services of the forces of darkness, that should he should be prosecuted for.

Take it to court if you think you have been wrongly fired, what he is doing though is a felony.
