Since the Putin/Russia hysteria just keeps chugging along, I thought I’d make a little video. Enjoy!
“The FBI struck back at the Democratic National Committee on Thursday, accusing it of denying federal investigators access to its computer systems and hamstringing its investigation into the infiltration of DNC servers by Russia-backed hackers.
“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. This left the FBI no choice but to rely upon a third party for information,” a senior law enforcement official told BuzzFeed News in a statement. “These actions caused significant delays and inhibited the FBI from addressing the intrusion earlier.”
The DNC said the FBI had never asked for access to their hacked servers, BuzzFeed News reported on Wednesday.
A DNC source familiar with the investigation tried to downplay that report on Thursday, hours before the FBI statement was issued. The fact that the FBI didn’t have direct access to the servers was not “significant,” the source said.
“I just don’t think that that’s really material or an important thing,” the source continued. “They had what they needed. There are always haters out here.”-Buzzfeed
By the way the elections are not the only thing Russia tries to influence.
Old news, and chump change compared to the U.S government laundering tax payer and oligarch’s money through foreign NGOs via outfits like NED and USAID to influence everything from polling to media to high tech/social media and enviro interests.
They’re all equal when you consider graft or “influence” proportional to the countries total economy.
