DOJ Admits FBI Never Saw Crowdstrike Report on DNC Russian Hacking Claim…

The foundation for the Russian election interference narrative is built on the claim of Russians hacking the servers of the Democrat National Committee (DNC), and subsequently releasing damaging emails that showed the DNC worked to help Hillary Clinton and eliminate Bernie Sanders.

Despite the Russian ‘hacking’ claim the DOJ previously admitted the DNC would not let FBI investigators review the DNC server.  Instead the DNC provided the FBI with analysis of a technical review done through a cyber-security contract with Crowdstrike.

The narrative around the DNC hack claim was always sketchy; many people believe the DNC email data was downloaded onto a flash drive and leaked.  In a court filing (full pdf below) the scale of sketchy has increased exponentially.

Suspecting they could prove the Russian hacking claim was false, lawyers representing Roger Stone requested the full Crowdstrike report on the DNC hack.  When the DOJ responded to the Stone motion they made a rather significant admission.  Not only did the FBI not review the DNC server, the FBI/DOJ never even saw the Crowdstrike report.

Yes, that is correct.  The FBI and DOJ were only allowed to see a “draft” report prepared by Crowdstrike, and that report was redacted… and that redacted draft is the “last version of the report produced”; meaning, there are no unredacted & final versions.

Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot!

This means the FBI and DOJ, and all of the downstream claims by the intelligence apparatus; including the December 2016 Joint Analysis Report and January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment, all the way to the Weissmann/Mueller report and the continued claims therein; were based on the official intelligence agencies of the U.S. government and the U.S. Department of Justice taking the word of a hired contractor for the Democrat party….. despite their inability to examine the server and/or actually see an unredacted technical forensic report from the investigating contractor.

The entire apparatus of the U.S. government just took their word for it…

…and used the claim therein as an official position….

…which led to a subsequent government claim, in court, of absolute certainty that Russia hacked the DNC.

Think about that for a few minutes.

The full intelligence apparatus of the United States government is relying on a report they have never even been allowed to see or confirm; that was created by a paid contractor for a political victim that would not allow the FBI to investigate their claim.

The DNC server issue is foundation, and cornerstone, of the U.S. government’s position on “Russia hacking” and the election interference narrative; and that narrative is based on zero factual evidence to affirm the U.S. government’s position.

…”the government does not need to prove at the defendant’s trial that the Russians hacked the DNC”… (pg 3)

Ridiculous.

You couldn’t make this nonsense up if you tried…

Here’s the full filing (h/t Techno Fog) :

      Do you think it’s possible our president is gearing up to make an address to the nation where he lays out all the evidence? At that point, even the politically unengaged will want answers and the media can’t ignore (or kowtow to)? the corrupt deep state any longer. The President’s overall message would be a terrifying one – if the corrupt deep state can do this to President of the United States, they can do this to you too.

      Franuche, I believe this is part of USAG Barr’s investigation into what started the investigation against President Trump. It scares the hell out of me as it should with every Citizen of the USA, that our federal government can use unvetted and what amounts to nothing but hearsay information, to prosecute our citizens.

      I hope General Flynn’s new attorney does a reversal with that bad plea deal, and his case is thrown out of court. I’m glad that Mr. Stone is fighting as well. What they did to him, the raid in early morning with a lot of armed federal officers, as well as the baloney charges against him, well, the government needs to pay and pay dearly for what they’ve done. Both to General Flynn, Mr. Stone, and especially to President Trump and his family. The left has gone TOO FAR. This is past being political, THIS IS CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR.

    And where are the so called “Judges” in all of this? From the FISA court judges who do not even have a hearing before granting a warrant to the trial judgesthat accept the government’s ascertains at face value and not allow a defendant to see and use all evidence in a case. I am not sure which is worse. The government prosecutors behavior or the judges who act like a rubber stamp.

      TRP, there is not enough scrutiny of the FISA Court role in this coup attempt. The Judges are not so stupid they could not understand the seriousness and unprecedented importance of a “MOTION TO SPY ON HILLARY”S PRESIDENTIAL OPPONENT”. THe FISC held no hearings for the record, asked no questions to confirm that the “evidence” was verified, or that it was proper to spy on a Presidential candidate, President-elect, or President. When it became clear they were lied to, the FISC never held a disciplinary hearing to punish the liars and false-oath swearers. The FISC never withdrew “nunc pro tunc” the improvidently-granted spy warrants to remove any protective cover they provided to the coup conspirators.
      The FISC is complicit. It completely failed in its Constitutional responsibilities as a check on the DOJ/FBI, and protector of the 4th Amendment. If the FISC was not complicit in this coup, it never would have authorized spying on the President without hearings and verification. If it was not complict, it would have disciplined the liars like any non-secret Federal Court, and “sua sponte” withdrawn the fraudulently-issued warrant. . Chief Justice Roberts failed in his supervisory responsibility for the FISC .

      The “subpoena-happy” Congress should subpoena these secret Star Chamber judges to ask why they were derelict in their duty. One patial remedy (in addiyion to removing the current complicit FISC judges for bad behavior) is to form a “defense Team” (lke the defense teams in military tribunals, and public defenders, to review and question FISA applications – especially because the defendants are not represented in any way.

        About the FISA court. The FISC does nothing different, in issuing a surveillance warrant than any other court in the land. No court holds a public hearing before granting such a warrant. That would defeat the whole purpose of the surveillance. The subject of the warrant is never notified and is never represented. The difference in the case of the FISC, is that the proceedings are secret and remain secret, under law. As to withdrawing the warrant, that is rarely done even in other courts, unless it comes to the attention of the court that the warrant was obtained fraudulently before a person is charged. Also, the court is limited in the actions which t can take in the case of fraud or perjury. The proecution for those crimes would be done by the DOJ.The court could impose sanctions for contempt, but that is about it.

        Reportedly, the FBI went to the FISC three times, before they obtained the desired warrants. This means that the court did not feel that there were enough facts to justify the issuance of the warrants, initially. What is interesting was Stzrok’s text about seeing his friend the judge, who was on the FISC just before the Page warrant was granted. The only problem with the FISC is that there is no transparency after the case is closed or a person is charged. This makes it hard for the defense to ascertain if the surveillance was constitutionally granted.

        Dutchman: We pretty much know when the Gang of Eight were notified of this CoI operation. It was after DJT was inaugurated. Comey told everyone that, when he testified on the Hill. He said that he withheld the information from Congress. There is evidence that Harry Reid knew about part of it in the winter of 2015.

I’d like to see Crowdstrike implicated and indicted as well. They just went public with an IPO and should be called out with their lies. It would be a great day if they discovered it really was Seth Rich that copied and sold the info to Wikileaks along with his brother Aaron Rich.

    I am a STRONG supporter of Trump. I’ll take it as a given everyone here is too.

    But if his administration is unable to arrive at an acceptable level of justice, specifically including CONVICTIONS (not just indictments) of the key players in this charade, then Trump will not be reelected.

    Trump supporters are beyond ticked off at the total lack of action, and every fine speech we hear from the Rep side only rubs more salt in the wound. I don’t want to hear another darned speech about it. I don’t want to read another tweet about it. Either take action or we will find someone who will.

    At this point, a march on DC would be as much against an impotent administration as against the perps. A different kind of Walk Away movement is way too close at hand, when the best President in a generation has within its grasp the power to turn this around, but hasn’t.

          1) I have some gray hair. I have some road miles. I’ve lived through some stuff.

          At least in modern times, winning an election takes more than being the least of evils. It takes enthusiastic engagement for people busy with their real lives to bother to vote for the least of evils. Turnout.

          Elections are won by engagement of people on the edges. The base vote is yours no matter what.

          What is moronic is to ignore this basic fact of political life.

          2) Election fraud has been an issue for a very long time, and probably always will be. We are talking hundreds of years, not an election cycle or two.

          But all indications are the level of election fraud today is very broad, very deep, and very large.

          We see that, and the Rep party does not? We say combat that, and we see no indications it is being dealt with?

          It is a very different thing to say the majority of legal voters support a candidate, and quite another thing to have the official election results award them the election.

          What is moronic is to support our own team failing to address this basic issue.

          3) All polls show the overwhelming majority of voters hate Congress, but THEIR Congressman is a good guy. It has been that way since forever.

          What is moronic is to keep doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

          4) The Walk Away movement is about a base of people becoming angry they and their views are being taken for granted by the party claiming to represent them.

          Ditto for the Tea Party before it was corrupted by the Establishment just using it to troll for money and votes.

          Sound familiar?

          5) If we are not going to get the clear and obvious ACTION we all know COULD be acted upon TODAY just from evidence in the public record, then the moronic response is to ignore that fact and accept it.

          Lastly, if that is true the better path forward is not visible. If it were we would all be talking about it and advocating it. Before that can be accepted, there has to be recognition that one is needed.

          It is better to know you need it and not have it, than have it and not accept that you need it.

And you are basing that testimony on a report given to you by the LAWYERS for the Democratic National Committee. And you, the FBI, never actually saw or examined the computer servers?
    AGENT: That is correct.
    DEF ATT: Well, can you provide a copy of the technical report produced by Crowdstrike for the Democratic National Committee?
    AGENT: No, I cannot.
    DEF ATT: Well, can you go back to your office and get a copy of the report?
    AGENT: No.
    DEF ATT: Why? Are you locked out of your office?
    AGENT: No.
    DEF ATT: I don’t understand. Why can you not provide a copy of this report?

    DEF ATT: Did you lose it?
    AGENT: No.
    DEF ATT: Why do you not have a copy of the report?
    AGENT: Because we were never given a final copy of the report?
    DEF ATT: Agent Smith, if you didn’t get a copy of the report, upon what information are you basing your testimony?
    AGENT: On a draft copy of the report.
    DEF ATT: A draft copy?
    AGENT: Yes.

    AGENT: No.
    DEF ATT: Agent Smith, did you get to read the entire report?
    AGENT: No.
    DEF ATT: Why not?
    AGENT: Because large portions were redacted.
    DEF ATT: Agent Smith, let me get this straight. The FBI is claiming that the Russians hacked the DNC servers. But the FBI never actually saw the computer hardware, nor examined it? Is that correct?
    AGENT: That is correct.
    DEF ATT: And the FBI never actually examined the log files or computer email or any aspect of the data from the servers? Is that correct?
    AGENT: That is correct.
    DEF ATT: And you are basing your testimony on the word of Counsel for the Democratic National Committee, the people who provided you with a REDACTED copy of a DRAFT report, not on the actual technical personnel who supposedly examined the servers?
    AGENT: That is correct.
    DEF ATT: Your honor, I have a few motions I would like to make at this time.

        A lesson from Sundance: Our legal system requires Time to properly dig to the very bottom and source of alleged crimes. Beginning many, many years ago our opposition was plotting traps and legal pitfalls to block us from
        discovery of when, where & who started this ungodly conspiracy to take rule over our United States of America.
        Likewise, most Media profit from our unrest and misery, usually tweaking facts and inserting misinformation. And who among us takes time to research unverified claims when even our Judicial Courts do not?
        People against us have gained a powerful understanding of Law and how to manipulate us if our anger shows hot. Even our Courts and Government are prepared to trick us into legal snares and jail us….. Isn’t the most evil among us able to best quote the Bible and recite government laws? ( you are always near, Satan, but “get thee behind me.”)
        Opposition has been plotting for a very long time for control while good people wanted to trust the government and legal system to be “doing the right thing” We were content in our own lives, work, raising families, trusting others, praising God.
        Now it’s Cold Anger because we forgot that humans are much better at Deception than Truth.

    Why isn’t James Comey being held to account for pushing the “Purchased Lies” on the American People and not investigating these false claims ? I assume the responsibility would be his to confirm these claims before making going public that a foreign government is responsible for this criminal activity. Where suppose to believe this why? And you never hear it mentioned that the same company was accused of lying and making the same w exact false claims in the Ukraine about the same time he was telling congress he took their word because of their reputation. I’m sure the NYT,AP and all the other alleged news outlets were very aware these claims were made by the Ukrainian government I think. I just can’t believe this is happening and that they are pushing this huge Lie on the American people. If you went to just about any city and started asking people about this they would tell you that the Russians hacked our election or that they hacked the DNC and that was how those emails ended up on WiKi Leaks .

      thing maybe our President knows just as well as everyone of us knows is that any of the Federal agencie that would be involved in prosecuting these Coup criminals are all in on it and he knows the swamp is not going to drain itself and even if they did find the stomach to bring just one of these criminals in front of a jury do any body with one brain cell believe a jury in Washington DC would convict a Democrat even if a trial managed to get moved out of DC the only reason would be to make the trial look non political but you can be assured the trial would be held in front of the most liberial swamp judge they could find maybe our very stable genious President knows he can win this battle, but if he had his way these people would already be in prison but he also knows if the will is not there by the people that can do the job it’s not going to happen also we know the establishment GOP in neck deep in this and if our President outs all of them even if he’s reelected he will get nothing thru Congress .it’s just the same game different day. our great President just

    This is direct opposite of what was known for a couple of years – FBI went to RNC and DNC about hacking attempts. RNC cooperated. DNC told them to get bent.

    So, Donna Brazille knew that Team Mueller never got jack from the DNC and didn’t get anything worth reading from Crowdstrike, and she knew it was coming out SOON.

            Crowdstrike did it once, they could do it again:
            (“It” being their false Dec 2016 attempt to bolster their May 2016 report)

            “An influential British think tank and Ukraine’s military are disputing a report that the U.S. cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike has used to buttress its claims of Russian hacking in the presidential election.

            The CrowdStrike report, released in December [2016], asserted that Russians hacked into a Ukrainian artillery app, resulting in heavy losses of howitzers in Ukraine’s war with Russian-backed separatists.

            But the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) told VOA that CrowdStrike erroneously used IISS data as proof of the intrusion. IISS disavowed any connection to the CrowdStrike report. Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense also has claimed combat losses and hacking never happened.

            A CrowdStrike spokesperson told VOA that it stands by its findings, which, they say, “have been confirmed by others in the cybersecurity community.” [Uh-huh, multiple confirmation by lackeys doesn’t make it true.]

            The challenges to CrowdStrike’s credibility are significant because the firm was the first to link last year’s hacks of Democratic Party computers to Russian actors, and because CrowdStrike co-founder Dimiti Alperovitch has trumpeted its Ukraine report as more evidence of Russian election tampering.

            Alperovitch has said that variants of the same software were used in both hacks.”

But it’s another to live through it. I still watch the News Hour. I still check the headlines in the NYT. And the reaction when we the baby being spoon fed this bowl of crap, turn away from it, has been to amp up the volume, and replace the spoon with a dump truck. News Hour last week announced they were going to dedicate a segment on the Mueller Report each day last week (’cause clearly the public didn’t get it yet). They’re not going to stop either. They will continue to amp up the volume, and scream shame at any and all who don’t acquiesce to their narrative. If they have the power to disarm, imprison or murder us, they will exercise that power, too, until no one dares question their authority to tell them what to think and say and do what they damn well please.

      TCH has been a godsend. The Wall Street Journal remains an independent journalist. There are a variety of sites often linked here that challenge the big lie. But until Barr and Durham and Horowitz and Huber deliver on the very long delayed promise of OIG reports and indictments for those who sought illegally to exonerate Criminal Clinton of absolute corruption, and to “slaughter Donald for his bromance with Putin,” we’re not out of the woods. We are on the cusp of totalitarian Marxism in our own country.

    There was always the probability that the “Russian DNC Hack” was no more that an appendage to the Russian Collusion Hoax. I it is now clear that is the case. And note that Wray never clarified to Congress or the FBI that in fact there was zero actual hacking by the Russians, but merely hearsay and the hearsay was of such poor quality that it is suspect in and of itself.
    ….
    Now we note that suddenly the DOJ/FBI have very little interest in actually talking to Assange. I wonder if Barr has noted that the DOJ/FBI rank and file (well Wray is not such, but he is with the cabal) suddenly are OK with Assange not being extradited until a year or more has passed. That would be until after the election, of course.
    Wonder what they are so anxious to hide?

    Hence why Trump has tweeted “Where’s the server?” numerous times. He knew. I am feeling like another poster… outrage fatigue. This is like enduring a really long murder mystery with subtitles, commercial breaks every 2 minutes, and the ending leaving everyone hanging. There *must be* some strategic reason for not having DECLASSED everything a good year ago. I have a hard time buying the idea that the American public is so dumb, they can’t handle the truth, and/or must be spoon-fed with a tiny spoon. Altho… in speaking with a friend of 40+ years last night, who thinks a rifle is a fully automatic weapon (#BlackRiflesMatter), thinks Hillary is a wonderful woman who got screwed, and who thinks the tariffs have actually caused inflation… maybe it’s true. She has been listening to Rachel MadCow for her information. Maybe the slow drip, drip, drip of information allows for seepage into the general American subconscious so that when declass actually happens, people will be ready for it, and believe it. I’ll probably be dead when the full truth comes out, which is what DC counts on.

    Sessions and wray were terrible hires. If Barr is another bad hire then things are terminal. It’s been way too long. the fact we have not seen a single indictment or plea deal smells like another cover-up. I don’t want to hear any more excuses about the deep state. Figure it out. You can indict a ham sandwich. Except when you don’t want to. The deep state protected manafort for years. Until they decided to go after him. notice how the tic toc club has gone silent? Lots of bold predictions about prison. Now I hear hedging. Wait for this. wait for that.
    Get it done. Hire and fire the right people. Comey clapper Brennan and McCabe are on TV. how worried do they look?? They are laughing.

    Saw this coming last week when Binney predicted it.

    Binney @13:15: “My understanding is the government is unable to give them an unredacted version because they don’t have one. That means that means they didn’t do the redactions. That means the DNC and CrowdStrike did the redactions. ”

        The institution isn’t the problem. It’s the people who have come to inhabit it. The SES is not the institution.Getting rid of that and prosecuting the extended cabal will solve 90% of the problem without having to burn our institutions to the ground. I’m glad for one that Barr loves these LE institutions and wants to save them. But I definitely do understand your sentiment and where you are coming from with the unprecedented corruption that appears to have infested American justice. That said, Congress and the judiciary appear to be complicit as well. Should we burn them to the ground?

          THE PART WHERE I THINK CROWDSTRIKE MAY HAVE BEEN FREELOADING OFF NSA DATA BASES TO TRACK THINGS FOR THEIR OWN ENRICHMENT (and empowerment of the global elites who want to control the world):

          “CrowdStrike, however, had built its corporate reputation on being more proactive than reactive when it came to cyber security. Using what it called Enterprise Adversary Assessment, CrowdStrike sought not only to locate the perpetrator of the attack, but also track them back into their systems and prevent them from ever returning. One of the tools CrowdStrike advertised in this regard involves so-called “attractive data” that had been tagged with tracking malware and placed in the compromised server. Once the hacker fell for the trap, and exfiltrated the file in question, CrowdStrike would be able to follow it back through the adversary’s network, helping build a picture of the adversary’s infrastructure, and hopefully identify what data had been previously stolen and where it resided. Crowdstrike also advertised offensive strategies designed to limit the number and severity of future attacks by disrupting the attackers’ infrastructure using undisclosed techniques.

          The services described would seem to run afoul of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, or CFAA (under the CFAA, private entities are restricted from pursuing offensive cyber security measures designed to infiltrate an attacker’s computer infrastructure for the purpose of learning how a cyber attack occurred.) CrowdStrike sought to mitigate any legal exposure presented by its new, innovative approach to cyber security by bringing Steven Chabinsky, a former FBI legal specialist with considerable experience in cyber intelligence operations, onboard as its general counsel.

          Chabinsky didn’t believe that the CFAA represented an insurmountable obstacle to CrowdStrike’s aggressive approach; if a business was hacked, he held, it had every right to either delete or encrypt its property if it was discovered on the attacker’s computers. Chabinsky’s approach echoed the mentality of Alperovitch, who likened CrowdStrike’s offensive posture to defending ones property rights.”
          _____________

          Question: If Crowdstrike was using NSA data bases and US govt technical expertise, are they STILL doing it? Do they still have this sort of access? They had govt contracts in the past. Do they still? What malware masquerading as anti-malware have they placed in US govt cyber systems? What other nefarious activities are they involved in? Is the recent NYT article alleging the US is attacking Russia’s cyber grid an unwitting confession of rogue cyber activity to further cause friction between the US and Russia?

        I’m currently in law enforcement, 29 years counting. I could’ve gotten a search warrant for those servers in less than four hours. As a law enforcement executive, I’m ashamed and embarrassed of what our FBI has become. The culture of the FBI is corrupted. The only way to “fix” this is to remove the top five layers of command from duty and replace them with U.S. Marshalls and start over – period.

        Very simple. Because the Dems were in power and the Department of Injustice/ Famous.But.Incompetent. were subservient and in league with them. Not to mention, the weak RINOs would never complain because both sides knew they never wanted to investigate the 1st black president. RINOs knew where that might lead and wanted no part of it.

      What if “Crowdstrike” were actually being managed and run by Russian FSB intelligence agents? How would anyone know, since the FBI and Justice Department are even vetting the report, or the company/agency itself?

      Again, there’s a stronger case that the Clinton campaign’s “colluded with the Russians” and other Foreign Nationals to take down an opposition Presidential candidate, then President elect, and then sitting President, than there is that Trump’s campaign did anything of the sort.

          And these “Russian FSB agents” would sabotage Russia and Putin by falsely blaming Russia for hacking the DNC? Huh?

          Crowdstrike is ANTI-RUSSIA. Alperovitch is a fellow at the anti-Russia, pro-NATO Atlantic Council. Crowdstrike falsely blamed Russia for a Ukrainian military hack.
