Get this! The FBI never examined the DNC computers before issuing their report blaming the Russians, Buzzfeed reported.
Six months after the FBI issued the report, they have still not asked for the hacked servers!
Yet they’ve decided the Russians did it?
No US government entity has run an independent forensic analysis on the system, one US intelligence official told BuzzFeed News.
The DNC met with FBI representatives from the Cyber Division and its DC Field Office and US Attorney’s Offices, but there was no FBI analysis.
Instead, they relied on forensics from a third party security firm, CrowdStrike. They said it was the Russians. CrowdStrike has only existed since 2011. They claim to be a provider of endpoint protection, threat intelligence, and pre- and post-incident response services. They detect attacks – that’s their real skill.
CrowdsStrike is the consulting firm hired by the DNC and they didn’t do a very good job.
Didn’t you think the FBI forensics had handled this?
On December 16 of last year, FBI Director Jim Comey agree with DNI Director Clapper that the Russians did it.
With Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham calling for Cold War-inducing sanctions, shouldn’t the FBI be looking at this themselves?
The joint FBI-DHS report offered no evidence that any reasonable person would accept. The disclaimer made it clear they did not stand behind it.
We are told we must believe the spy agencies but they do some very shoddy work.
