Default CrowdStrike couldn't say for sure Russians stole DNC emails

During the 2016 election campaign the FBI warned the DNC its servers were likely compromised by hackers. Despite the warning Democrats continued to use the servers as if nothing was amiss. Once the content was made public Democrats and their media toadies tried to suppress the information by claiming it was from "Russians." After the election Democrats suddenly became interested in investigating the cause of the security breach. Publicly they declared with certainty it was the Russians who were responsible.

Quote:
Declassified documents released by Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff show the president of CrowdStrike Services — a computer-and-network-security firm hired to investigate the hacking of Democratic National Committee servers — couldn't say for certain that Russians downloaded Democratic Party emails.

During the interview made public Thursday, Shawn Henry explained that CrowdStrike found some evidence that information was taken from DNC servers, but it was not conclusive.
Rather than have the FBI investigate the breach the Democrats channeled the investigation through their hand picked consultants at CrowdStrike then lied about what had been discovered. Of course James Comey's FBI and Obama's so-called intelligence community was only too happy to adopt the party line that the Russians did it to help Donald Trump.

Quote:
There is widespread agreement in the intelligence community that Russia hacked the DNC servers, but questions have long persisted because FBI investigators did not seize the DNC servers and relied instead on CrowdStrike's analysis of what occurred during the hacking.

Henry is a former FBI agent who oversaw the bureau's cyber crimes efforts before he transitioned to the private sector to do cyber security work.
Of course any examination of the evidence supporting the widespread agreement earns the inquisitor scorn as a blind supporter of President Trump.

The decision to corrupt the investigation into the DNC server compromise was rooted in the chummy relationship with CrowdStrike.

Quote:
He was interviewed on Dec. 5, 2017, on Capitol Hill by five members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence — Reps. Castro, Conaway, Adam Schiff, Chris Stewart and Eric Swalwell, with lawyers for the related parties present.

Henry said he was initially contacted by a former Justice Department colleague named Michael Sussmann who became an attorney for the Washington, D.C. law firm Perkins Coie. He said Sussmann unexpectedly emailed him and subsequently told him in a series of communications that he was seeking some cybersecurity remediation for the Democratic National Committee, whose computers had been hacked.
CrowdStrike went from cybersecurity consultant to regulator of information allowed to be used to reach the "unbiased, definitive conclusion" that Russian hacking to help Trump was to blame. It's interesting to see that the law firm of Perkins, Coie who acted as bagman for the Steele dossier disinformation campaign extended tentacles into this smear campaign as well.

As the Russian Collusion hoax unravels before our eyes, it is becoming quite apparent that the cabal that promoted the hoax has it's hands in a lot of, if not all of, the miss-information that was dutifully disseminated to the willing and compliant press.

The one thing that cracked me up the most about this Russian collusion hoax nonsense was the fact they were accusing Russia of trying to interfere in our elections when the mainstream media has been trying to interfere nonstop 24/7 in our elections. Anyone who doesn't know any better would think Democrats shit nothing but rainbows while republicans are scum of the earth.
