There seems to be nothing the Democrats won’t attribute to Russian hackers supposedly interfering with the 2016 Presidential election. They want to find excuses to explain Hillary Clinton’s historic lost to President elect Donald Trump, and the media is helping them make up stories.
The FBI didn’t bother to conduct a forensic analysis of the servers. Wow!
The FBI did not examine the servers of the Democratic National Committee before issuing a report attributing the sweeping cyberintrusion to Russia-backed hackers, BuzzFeed News has learned.
Six months after the FBI first said it was investigating the hack of the Democratic National Committee’s computer network, the bureau has still not requested access to the hacked servers, a DNC spokesman said. No US government entity has run an independent forensic analysis on the system, one US intelligence official told BuzzFeed News.
“The DNC had several meetings with representatives of the FBI’s Cyber Division and its Washington (DC) Field Office, the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, and U.S. Attorney’s Offices, and it responded to a variety of requests for cooperation, but the FBI never requested access to the DNC’s computer servers,” Eric Walker, the DNC’s deputy communications director, told BuzzFeed News in an email.
This suggests the FBI and the Obama administration already came to the conclusion that Russia was behind the hacking (or phishing) long before evidence was examined.
The FBI has a massive budget for investigations and is the most sophisticated investigative agency on Earth. With world-class forensic talents and the best technology in their crime labs, the FBI decided to outsource this critical investigation. And to make matters worse, the 3rd party investigators were charged with coming up with their own conclusions!
The political narrative of these servers is a mess. This story was broken by Buzzfeed, a liberal site, which is a sign that even liberals aren’t buying the Obama administration’s story of how the 2016 election was lost.
Trump won fairly, and there’s no doubt that any excuse-making about emails is a way to undermine Trump and the millions of Americans who proudly voted for him.
