Imagine our shock.
The DOJ recently informed the court in a filing in response to Roger Stone’s motion to compel unredacted Crowdstrike reports that it doesn’t even posses the unredacted reports on the so-called ‘hack’ of the DNC servers.
The DNC’s lawyer provided the Crowdstrike reports to the US government with redactions and claimed the redacted parts were not relevant to the investigation.
And surprise, surprise — the FBI never looked into it.
“By May 2016, the DNC and the DCCC became aware that their computer systems had been compromised by intrusions, and they hired the cybersecurity company CrowdStrike to identify the extent of the intrusions and mitigate the threat,” the filing stated.
Right, because going to the FBI wasn’t an option for Hillary and her camp — they hired a Deep State friendly cybersecurity firm to crank out reports for them and magically it was ‘confirmed’ that the Russians hacked the servers and were given code names “Cozy Bear” and “Fancy Bear.”
Former FBI Director James Comey testified that the FBI asked the DNC for the compromised servers several times and they refused to hand them over to the bureau.
Instead of taking the servers, Comey and the DNC agreed that CrowdStrike would investigate the so-called ‘hack’ and they ultimately churned out three “draft reports.”
According to the court filing, “Copies of these reports were subsequently produced voluntarily to the government by counsel for the DNC and DCCC. At the time of the voluntary production, counsel for the DNC told the government that the redacted material concerned steps taken to remediate the attack and to harden the DNC and DCCC systems against future attack.”
And did the FBI further look into the redactions? NOPE! The FBI just trusted the DNC’s lawyer that there was nothing relevant behind the redactions.
“According to counsel, no redacted information concerned the attribution of the attack to Russian actors,” the filing stated.
So there you have it. CrowdStrike gave the US government three “draft reports” on the so-called hack which was full of redactions and the FBI just took their word for it that the Russians hacked the DNC servers.
The DNC's lawyer provided the Crowdstrike reports to the Govt. He said the redacted parts weren't relevant to the investigation.
The FBI never looked into it.
