REMINDER: DNC denied FBI’s requests for access to hacked servers

The FBI requested direct access to the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) hacked computer servers but was denied, Director James Comey told lawmakers on Tuesday.

The bureau made “multiple requests at different levels,” according to Comey, but ultimately struck an agreement with the DNC that a “highly respected private company” would get access and share what it found with investigators.

“We’d always prefer to have access hands-on ourselves if that’s possible,” Comey said, noting that he didn’t know why the DNC rebuffed the FBI’s request.

The director was testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee in a rare open session on Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.

The DNC and the bureau have been quibbling in news reports over whether the FBI asked to examine its servers directly.

The DNC told BuzzFeed in a statement published last week that the FBI never requested access to its servers after they were breached.

But a senior law enforcement official disputed that characterization the following day.

“The FBI repeatedly stressed to DNC officials the necessity of obtaining direct access to servers and data, only to be rebuffed until well after the initial compromise had been mitigated,” the official said.

“This left the FBI no choice but to rely upon a third party for information. These actions caused significant delays and inhibited the FBI from addressing the intrusion earlier.”

CrowdStrike, the private security firm in question, has published extensive forensic analysis backing up its assessment that the threat groups that infiltrated the DNC were associated with Russian intelligence.

Wikileaks – Most Shocking Revelations in 3 Minutes

Among the many telling kernels of truth dappling the spoor of the Hillary Clinton campaign’s internal e-mails released by WikiLeaks this past week, this one immediately leaped out:

“Politics is like sausage being made. It is unsavory, and it always has been that way, but we usually end up where we need to be. But if everybody’s watching . . . then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position.”

The sausage maker was Mrs. Clinton, giving one of her $225,000 speeches that she’s so long sought to conceal from the public, in this instance to the National Multi-Housing Council in April 2013. It came at a time when the just-retired secretary of state was coyly gearing up for a White House run, little tin cup at the ready, raking in nearly a million dollars that month alone.

WIKILEAKS: Classless Clinton Camp’s Disgusting Response To San Bernardino Attack

As part of Sunday’s new WikiLeaks drop, an email chain shows that immediately upon receiving the news that the gunman responsible for the San Bernardino terrorist shooting that left 14 people dead and 22 injured had an Islamic name, top Clinton officials were unhappy and Hillary Clinton chairman John Podesta suggested it would be “better” if a person with an American name had done the shooting.

 

BREITBART WRITES:

Karen Finney—spokesman for the Clinton 2016 presidential campaign and former MSNBC host wrote a terse response to this news:

Damn

Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta fired back the following response:

Better if a guy named Sayeed Farouk was reporting that a guy named Christopher Hayes was the shooter.

Breitbart News has reached out to John Podesta via twitter to ask why this would be “better.”

Podesta had not responded at press time.

Madrid couple Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik carried out the attack at a Christmas party held at the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health as an act of jihad against the United States. Farook, an employee of that department, was an American-born citizen of Pakistani descent. His wife, Malik, was a Pakistani-born lawful permanent resident of the United States.

Typically, the Clintons and their people put narrative above the well being and concern for the American people.

Wikileaks Has Only Released 1% Of The Podesta Emails – Hold Your Horses

On Friday, WikiLeaks announced that it had obtained nearly 50,000 emails from the personal inbox of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, and leaked more than two thousand of them. The Clinton campaign would not confirm the authenticity of the emails, but a series of Podesta tweets seemed to indicate that his email was compromised.

Wikileaks editor Julian Assange has tweeted that approximately 1% of the emails have been released assuring his audience that they will leak throughout the election cycle.

One month is a long time in a general election folks. Anything can happen. #MAGA

CLINTON LEAK – Gun Control By Executive Order

This from Wikileaks:

 

Circling back around on guns as a follow up to the Friday morning discussion: the Today show has indicated they definitely plan to ask bout guns, and so to have the discussion be more of a news event than her previous times discussing guns, we are going to background reporters tonight on a few of the specific proposals she would support as President – universal background checks of course, but also closing the gun show loophole by executive order and imposing manufacturer liability.

Liberals will tell you, “she doesn’t want to take your guns!”. Say that again?
