A bombshell revelation reveals that most of the damaging DNC emails were written after they knew they were hacked. Once the DNC knew they had been hacked, they refused to call the FBI, who could have prevented further leaks, but instead they chose to bring in a private firm that were incapable of protecting their system.
DNC CEO Amy Dacey first learned of the hacking in late April. But a check of the 27,000 hacked emails show that only 7,000 of them had been written at that time and the other 20,000 were written later. Most of the emails were written between May 5th and May 25th.
Dacey and Debbie Wasserman Schultz decided against calling in the FBI without consulting the DNC board members and instead turned to CrowdStrike. CrowdStrike was unable to stem the flow which suggests they really have no idea what they were doing. This is important for a second reason.
Since the DNC did not let any law enforcement examine their servers, they had to rely on what CrowdStrike told them and since CrowdStrike was apparently unable to fix the problem, one could be left with the impression that they were possibly covering up for their inability to stem the leak. The good news is Hillary now has three new scapegoats for her loss. Dacey, Schultz and CrowdStrike. She can use that in her next whiny book.
According to the Daily Caller:
For weeks after the highly-paid firm responded, the breach continued unabated. More than 16,000 emails later published by Wikileaks were written after May 5.
CrowdStrike said known viruses were responsible for creating the vulnerability.
The fact that newly-written emails continued to be captured weeks after the DNC’s top staff was well aware it had been breached raises questions about why Wasserman Schultz and Dacey did not turn to the FBI, and whether the FBI could have immediately stemmed the flow.
CrowdStrike replaced the software on all DNC computers in what it believed would put the issue to rest June 10 — a month after the DNC detected the breach. Furthermore, there is reason to believe the breach had already ended, with the last Wikileaks email written May 25.
CrowdStrike did not return a request for comment.
Of the 10 emails WaPo deemed “most damaging,” nine of them were written after April 29 when the DNC’s leaders knew its emails could be intercepted. They include examples of the DNC seemingly failing to administer the primary election in a neutral way, with Wasserman Schultz calling a Sanders aide a “damn liar” and the DNC’s chief financial officer plotting to use Sanders’ religious beliefs against him.
Dacey and Schultz did not even notify the DNC board of the hack until June 14th, well after all of the emails were hacked or stolen by an insider. In fact 9 of the 10 most damaging emails were written after Dacey and Schultz knew about the hacks.
Even after the problems at the DNC, Schultz did not learn her lesson. The IT techs she hired for her congressional office turned out to be crooked and even after learning about that, she refused to report him to law enforcement, using the extremely weak excuse that she was afraid law enforcement would be Islamaphobic against him. Ron White was never more right. “You can’t fix stupid.”
