It’s Not About Biden – Deep State Response to Ukraine Call Now Makes Sense – Trump Questioned Crowdstrike…

The completely over-the-top response by a Deep State embed whistleblower and his/her political allies within the administrative state now makes sense; it had nothing to do with Joe Biden.  President Trump asked President Zelenskyy about “Crowdstrike.”

(Page 3 – Source pdf)

To understand how important this is, we must remember the foundation for the entire Russian election interference narrative, ‘Muh Russia – writ large, is built on the claim Russians hacked the servers of the Democrat National Committee (DNC), and subsequently released damaging emails that showed the DNC worked to help Hillary Clinton and eliminate Bernie Sanders.

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

According to the original FBI statements made by James Comey: Crowdstrike did the captured imaging of the DNC network (servers/cloud), then conducted analysis, then provided a report to the DNC with their findings; and that report was given to the FBI.  At least that was the original 2017 claim.  However, during court filings in the case against Roger Stone, the DOJ/FBI later admitted they never even saw the Crowstrike final report.

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 or cloud data,  the FBI/DOJ never even saw the final Crowdstrike report.

(Source pdf)

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.  Crowdstrike was a private contractor holding a strong conflict of interest over Clinton and DNC interests. With this FBI court admission the scale of sketchy increased exponentially.

There was, and still is, absolutely no evidence the DNC was “hacked” (WikiLeaks claims the information was an inside job of “leaking”), and even John Podesta admitted himself he was a victim of an ordinary “phishing” password change scam.

This admission meant 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)


CTH has previously outlined how the December 29th, 2016, Joint Analysis Report on Russia Cyber Activity was a quickly compiled bunch of nonsense about Russian hacking.

The “Russian Malicious Cyber Activity – Joint Analysis Report” (full pdf here) is pure nonsense. It outlines nothing more than vague and disingenuous typical hacking activity that is no more substantive than any other hacking report on any other foreign actor.

This report might as well be blaming Nigerian fraud phone solicitors for targeting U.S. phone numbers.  Just because your grandma didn’t actually win that Nigerian national lottery doesn’t mean the Nigerian government, or representative of the Nigerian government were targeting grandma.

This JAR report is nothing more than a generalized, albeit techno-worded, explanation for how Nigerians, Indians, or in this case Russians, attempt to gain your email passwords etc., nothing more.  (more)

The JAR was followed a week later by the January 7th, 2017, Intelligence Community Assessment.   The ICA took the ridiculous construct of the JAR and then overlaid a political narrative that Russia was trying to help Donald Trump.

The claims within the ICA were/are completely silly, and manufactured specifically to present a political narrative intended to undermine President-elect Donald Trump.  The ICA was the brain-trust of John Brennan, James Clapper and James Comey.  NSA Director Mike Rogers would not sign up to the “high confidence” claims, likely because he saw through the political motives of the report.

[…] “And then you hear it’s 17 agencies. Well, it’s three. And one is Brennan and one is whatever. I mean, give me a break. They’re political hacks.”

“So you look at it — I mean, you have Brennan, you have Clapper, and you have Comey. Comey is proven now to be a liar and he’s proven to be a leaker.”

“So you look at that, and you have President Putin very strongly, vehemently says he had nothing to do with that. Now, you’re not going to get into an argument. You’re going to start talking about Syria and the Ukraine.”

~ President Donald Trump

There’s no doubt the intended intelligence community outcome was to create internal confusion about the validity of the 2016 election and begin selling a narrative to undermine the incoming President-elect Trump administration.  No-one expected him to win; Trump’s victory sent a shock-wave through the DC system the professional political class were reacting to.

Trump was a threat, an existential threat to their entire livelihood, and Trump won.  Now the outgoing administration was in a state of panic; and the outlier co-dependent agents from that administration were similarly apoplectic with fear.

The outgoing administration needed to create something, some narrative, to block Trump from upending their entire political system.  They sold this ridiculous Russian Narrative to a gullible U.S. left-wing electorate, because the Obama administration -writ large- knew media would help them and millions of people who will buy into these fabrications.

Consider the December 2016 example from a Yahoo News article:

[…] The US intelligence community has concluded that a hack-and-release of Democratic Party and Clinton staff emails was designed to put Trump — a political neophyte who has praised Putin — into the Oval Office. (link)

Was the ICA document, the analysis that forms the cornerstone of this narrative, a politically engineered report stemming from within a corrupt intelligence network?

The importance of that question is rather large.

All of the downstream claims about Russian activity, including the Russian indictments promoted by Rosenstein and the Mueller team, are centered around origination claims of illicit Russian activity outlined in the ICA.

If the ICA is a false political document…. then guess what?

Yep, the entire Russia narrative from the JAR and ICA is part of a big fraud.

The Intelligence Community Assessment (JAR and ICA) is dependent on a forensic analysis report from Crowdstrike.  Crowdstrike was a contractor for Clinton and the DNC; and the DOJ now admits they never saw the final Crowdstrike report or the underlying evidence upon which the report is based…

(New York Times) […] Mr. Barr wants to know more about the C.I.A. sources who helped inform its understanding of the details of the Russian interference campaign, an official has said. He also wants to better understand the intelligence that flowed from the C.I.A. to the F.B.I. in the summer of 2016.

During the final weeks of the Obama administration, the intelligence community released a declassified assessment that concluded that Mr. Putin ordered an influence campaign that “aspired to help” Mr. Trump’s electoral chances by damaging Mrs. Clinton’s. The C.I.A. and the F.B.I. reported they had high confidence in the conclusion. The National Security Agency, which conducts electronic surveillance, had a moderate degree of confidence. (read more)

Now do you see why the Deep Administrative State would be going bananas?

  1. Another Scott says:

    One thing that doesn’t make sense: if the deep state was up in arms about President Trump bringing up Crowdstrike why did they shine light via the whistleblower on that phone call? Wouldn’t they instead want it kept out of the public eye? Or maybe they didn’t think President Trump would actually release the transcript of the call…..


    • ARW says:

      I think they knew what was in the whistle blower complaint but they had no idea what was in the actual transcript. They thought it supported it enough they could build a compelling impeachment narrative from it.


    • The Gipper Lives says:

      Why? Desperation. They have made the conversation about Trump. Also about Biden. We’re the only ones talking about CrowdStrike. And now, if needed, Clinton can claim it is beneath discussion as the fruit of the poisoned tree.

We have turned away from real liberal values like the ones our forefathers believed in. If you want real change pray for a crashed economy and starvation. Only then will we see some meaningful change, but it won’t be good as we are no longer a homogeneous society under God.

    Remember Farris penning an op ed recommending Brent Scrowcroft, of the Atlantic Council, to be Special Prosecutor.

    Remember Adam Schiff going apeshot about the Putin/Trump meeting in Finland? Threatened to subpoena the freaking translator. Bet someone leaked their ‘interpretation’ of that meeting to Schiff and bet Putin told PDJT something having to do with Crowdstrike…. same thing here. We’ve got moles all over the place.

    You really need to do a better job of connecting the dots as to why Trump’s questioning about Crowdstrike is the real cause of this uproar (as opposed to the Biden stuff).

    In particular, perhaps look at who’s behind Crowdstrike, what their connections are, and how they’re connected to Ukraine. The information is all out there.

    Dmitri Alpertovich is the founder. He was born in Moscow and was raised in the US, in Maryland. His parents were akin to exiles from the Soviet Union, and he is an enemy of Russia. He has deep links to Google. “In 2015 CapitalG (formerly Google Capital), led a $100 million capital drive for CrowdStrike. . . . By May of 2017, CrowdStrike has received $256 million in funding from Warburg Pincus, Accel Partners, and Google Capital.” (From his Wikipedia page, admittedly not a trustworthy source of info.) Some of the other folks at Crowdstrike (e.g., Shawn Henry) have significant Deep State ties.

    Alpertovich is a member of the Atlantic Council. (Also from his Wikipedia page.) Do a bit of digging on who the Atlantic Council is and what interests they support. Do a little research on Sergey Brin of Google, also raised in Maryland, and what interests he supports. Why would a Brin-backed fund twice give Alpertovich’s firm a significant chunk of money? Then, the picture might start to get a little clearer, those dots may start to connect.

        Hunter smoked away some of it in his crack pipe. Much of it has probably been laundered either in large assets such as real estate or smaller ones like jewelry, which are easy to hide.

However, addicts tend to blow through money like dung goes through a goose so one can imagine much of it simply went up in smoke, as Cheech and Chong would say.


      • eguthr3 says:

        Well, after looking for that answer, doing weeks of research, I discovered they have two charitable foundations. The Biden Family Foundation and last year they launched “As You Are,” a family and community acceptance campaign to raise awareness of the importance of family acceptance in the lives of LGBTQ young people. It was created in December 2017 and is listed as a Section 501(c)(3) organizations AND Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children Inc (which is ironic when you remember what creepy Joe does to little girls. EEEEEWWWW). Anyway, like the Clinton’s I could only find about 8% of what is taken in, goes to help others. I think this is, like the Clinton Foundation, it’s a laundering operation and I bet that’s where the money is being hidden. The irony is they want to tax US out of our homes, while they use tax loopholes in the tax code and hide their millions in family “charitable “ foundation. Waters, the Pelosi’s, the Obama’s, Feinstein, Blumenthal, Warren, Mark Warner, McCaskill Family Foundation (Claire McCaskill Used Undisclosed Foundation to Pay for Dinner at Russian Ambassador’s House Sergey Kislyak’s Washington, D.C., residence. The senator had failed to disclose her role in the foundation in 2017), and it goes on and on all have family foundations and they all appear to be laundering money through them.

    Doesn’t EVERYONE, despite the obligatory charade, know that the rats lie steal and cheat? And isn’t it obvious that their supporters know this but don’t care because there’s something in it for them – i.e. other people’s money? And don’t the voters for these people basically feel the same way – that one way or another the lies and cheating will be worth it?

    I feel this is basically a struggle between those who want to be self-sufficient, work and pay their own way and self-determine their own lives – against those who figure they deserve to get what the efficient self-sufficient people have earned and they’ll make ANY excuse why they deserve what the other person earned.

    I’m hoping that now that POTUS has enabled so many jobs that much of the “gimmedat” group will switch to the “keep your mitts off my stuff that I worked for” group. If so I think we’ll be better for it.

    We know that Trump is investigating this, and we are now seeing the downstream consequences of Trump acting as an honest actor on the world stage: Like-minded people are helping him out across the globe. Trump may not have a lot of allies in the US political system, but abroad there are plenty of people who want to be freed of that political system’s global machinations and abusive behavior.

    THIS is what they are terrified of. The media has tried like hell to not only befuddle the public but also put out disinformation and doubt into Trump’s allies, but it’s not working. Trump calling the media out and talking about how they are a laughingstock around the world is him saying that his allies aren’t buying their propaganda. Same with his cabinet and the few and effective guys he has in his administration.

    Sundance is right that these guys really know how to play the political game….but Trump was never supposed to win. He’s a variable that they can’t truly account for, and because he’s had a mostly clean life (compared to the rest of them) nothing they throw at him sticks because the lie gets exposed for what it is and the truth eventually wins in the end. And now we have all these other variables coming into play like Zelensky and Boris Johnson Vicor Orban, Jair Bolosandro,Shinzo Abe, et cetera that are throwing more monkey wrenches into their usually effective schemes.

    They’re panicking because they know there’s nothing they can ultimately do to stop what’s coming. If SD is right and Feinstein noped out of her old job because she knew how badly out of control this was getting, then she knows what’s coming around the bend and is trying to get to minimum safe distance from ground zero. Pelosi knew she couldn’t commit to Impeachment proceedings because she knew what was in the transcript wasn’t impeachment worthy.

    You can tell for Pelosi and the really entrenched Swamp that they know the party is over for them. Here comes the hangover…and worse.

      Pelosi did the worst of both worlds for the Democrats.
      By jumping to “impeachment” before the facts were even in, she has made the Democrats’ priorities clear to voters, which she had been desperately trying to conceal. She can’t walk it back and say “nevermind” simply because the facts don’t justify it. There is no unringing that bell.

      And yet there is no actual impeachment inquiry. Democrats are not legally entitled to any documents or witnesses to run their impeachment circus unless the full house votes to open an inquiry. The Speaker declaring it by fiat does not carry the weight of law.

      Pelosi’s lack of real, legally binding action will only further dispirit and enrage the left while alerting everyone else to just how out of control the Democrats have become.

    The Last Straw!

    Note: I have released the message below in one format or another several times since 1989. This time I have not censored a single word out of the lessons learned. I will not comment on any of the elements in the book I referenced except to say the likes of B. H. Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, the Clintons, and so many of their comrades in the political community and media are going to feel the pent-up anger of many of us veterans who along with our fellow Americans have been betrayed one time too many! I have seen politicians at every level of government involved in every kind of crime one can imagine, but what Nancy and her gang pulled today on top of all that has occurred since D. J. Trump came down that escalator has not only insulted the intelligence of the American people, but their freedom! Bottom line her/their lack of candor is the last straw (see lessons learned # 2 & 14-15).

    C. W. Lauderdale Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired.

    Rape, Pillage, Plunder; America You have Been Had, And It’s Your Own Damn Fault!

    In 1989 after serving 26 years as a soldier/cop and in my third year as a civilian police chief, I prepared 12 of the 15 lessons learned presented below as part of a book I was writing detailing my experiences as an American soldier and police officer. Everything I have seen, read, and heard since D.J. Trump walked down that escalator in Trump Towers has convinced me that all of the original 12 lessons learned and the three I added recently are more relevant today than they were 30 years ago. The behavior of most of the American political class, the American bureaucracy, the American media, and American Academia has also convinced me that God still loves Americans and America. I know this because God has sent us a true leader who has clearly displayed that he has mastered all of the Seven C’s of Leadership (see lessons learned #2). I believe God sent D.J. Trump here to lead America to a height we have never imagined. I also believe God has/is demonstrating that he has a sense of humor. Why else would he place so many blabbering idiots (i.e. media, politicians, bureaucrats, academicians, etc…) among us generally insulting the intelligence of the dumbest among us with their daily doses of pure manure? Today’s media, bureaucrats, academicians, and political class are the same and/or newer versions of those that inspired the lessons learned presented below and a book yet to be published (due to the amount of still classified material therein). The title of the book may provide a hint or two as to my basic attitude. The book’s original title was: Rape, Pillage, Plunder; America You have Been Had! After B.H. Obama was elected to his second term I re-titled the book. The new title is: Rape, Pillage, Plunder; America You have Been Had. And, It’s Your Own Damn Fault!

    A Soldier/Cop’s Lessons Learned

    1. Soldiers (ground combat soldiers, that is) do not fight first and foremost for their country, the flag, motherhood, nor apple pie. Before all else, soldiers engaged in ground combat fight for their fellow soldiers and their unit.

    2. The Seven C’s of Leadership according to a 1980 survey of 1646 of Vietnam era ground combat veterans listed of the order of their importance are; Candor, Competence, Consistency, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, and Courtesy. The reason the soldiers in the survey chose the word “candor” is because to them candor encompasses both omission and co-mission. To a combat soldier lack of absolute candor, be it co-mission or omission, are equal sins! In short, soldiers expect/demand absolute candor from their leaders before all else.

    3. The most cost effective personnel management tool for incompetent personnel assigned to leadership positions in combat units (and probably elsewhere) is “Fragging!”

    4. The American people are the most effectively lied to people in modern times thanks primarily to the American political class, the American bureaucracy, the American media, and American academia.

    5. Arrogance coupled with ignorance equals stupidity.

    6. The greatest threats to the American people are the corrupt and/or incompetent politicians/bureaucrats/academicians found at every level of government/academia, and the majority of the American so-called media.

    7. Most of the politicians/bureaucrats/academicians I have encountered during my years as a soldier/cop I most kindly refer to as; self-serving, witless, cowards.

    8. The American Profession of Arms and our brothers/sisters in blue have failed to protect the American people from all of their enemies, both foreign and most especially domestic.

    9. My guns were always turned in the wrong direction.

    10. Washington, DC is the most target rich environment I have encountered in all of my years as a soldier/cop.

    11. If recalled to active military service the only position I will accept is; Commander, Revolutionary Forces.

    12. There are only two primary requirements to be a career soldier and/or cop in America. One must be smart enough to do the work and dumb enough to take the job.

    13. American soldiers and police officers must in addition to mastering all of their professionally mandated tasks, learn to accomplish the same with at least one arm tied behind their backs and their vision impaired 50% or more. (Added 2019)

    14. After carefully watching the whole of the political class since Donald J. Trump walked down that escalator in Trump Tower to date, I can say without reservation that most of the group will sell their souls and our bodies just to remain in power. (Added 2019)

    15. Want to see what the United States of America will look like if the left takes control of the government? Take your pick, New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or the complete package; California. (Added 2019)

    Please, one final note: Contrary to the implications of several of my lessons learned, I have long ago abandoned any desire to negate (Negate, the procedure that the British SAS [Special Air Service] utilizes to transfer subjects from the persons of interest list to the persons no longer of interest list.) those of the any of four communities who would threaten and/or interfere with soldiers/cops actions to protect/serve the American people. No, these days I would support rounding up the most obnoxious of the communities, issuing each of them a tent and a bus ticket to California, and instructing them that if they leave California it better be on a boat heading to China!

    This jumped out at me when I read the transcript this morning. Funny thing is that no one in the far left MSM has brought this up so far. Theyre too busy trying to pin bidens crimes on Trump.

    “………because the Obama administration -writ large- knew media would help them and millions of people who will buy into these fabrications.”

    This has only gotten worse.

    Does anyone else find it strange that after PDJT’s epic & bold exposure & humiliation of China on the U.N. world stage this week that no one (even China) appears to be reacting to this? Is it possible that a spinoff from this unraveling Ukraine/Biden scandal might put China’s espionage smack dab at center front & could explain PDJT’s boldness? It seems to me PDJT is not permitting much, if any, “face saving” for China which is highly valued in China’s culture . . .?

      POTUS was blunt and detailed in his exposure of China’s bold theft of American technology, wasn’t he?? Right in front of the whole dam world.

      He is dancing on a fine line confronting China’s thieves while staying friendly with Xi.

    I got out of the gym at 11pm and had on Fox on SiriusXM and the first untrue thing I here from some reporter is that Crowdstrike determined that the DNC hack was done by Russia. Not alleged, but reported as fact. Shannon Bream then blurted out the same crap that any CNN or MSNBC host would. Then I changed the channel.

    I need to get OANN.

    I know I’m coming into this late and this may be buried in the responses, but it may tie into this article:

    My understanding is that Crowdstrike was (please correct me if I’m wrong), in part, funded by Google who was all-in for Hillary in the last election.


  24. jmarshs says:

    Excerpt from the above article:

    “In December, CrowdStrike said it found evidence that Russians hacked into a Ukrainian artillery app, contributing to heavy losses of howitzers in Ukraine’s war with pro-Russian separatists.

    VOA reported Tuesday that the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), which publishes an annual reference estimating the strength of world armed forces, disavowed the CrowdStrike report and said it had never been contacted by the company.

    Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense also has stated that the combat losses and hacking never happened.”

    Crowdstrike is a deep state concern (and maybe Dems).Two other looming concerns for Dems:

    1. RBG’s health is uncertain. If RBG’s seat on the SC opens up, Dems will argue Trump can’t nominate a new SC justice while under impeachment inquiry. They’d go ballistic if that happened.

    2. Obviously, the Horowitz and Durham investigations are a concern. Having Trump under “official” impeachment inquiry when those reports are issued will allow Dems to muddy the conversation and perhaps paint the reports as political gamesmanship.


    • fred5678 says:

      “Dems will argue Trump can’t nominate a new SC justice while under impeachment inquiry”

      Sounds likely from those rats. They are devious, aren’t they??

      It’s all about gaining and keeping power, ‘cuz if you believe you are uniquely qualified to run ordinary peoples’ lives, you MUST CONTROL GOVERNMENT!

    Could it be that the so-called whistleblower was a suspected leaker and was setup?

    As it turns out, this person did not have any firsthand knowledge of the call. They were merely told about it by…. White House staffers.

    What this person was told happened—and what was actually in the transcript—are quite different. And it was THE WHITE HOUSE that controlled the flow of information every step of the way.

    This really starts sounding like it was an operation to out a suspected leaker by giving them bad information then watching to see where it turns up.

    Ensnaring Biden, the Deep State, the news media, and the Democrat Party was likely a happy accident.

    And not one person has mentioned the US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch…who it seems is “going to go through some things”. I swear this guy is a friggen genius…he told ’em not to step on that rake or they’d get another black eye and damn if they didn’t. There’s gonna be “splody” (my new favorite word) heads everywhere!


  30. PMadison says:

    Isn’t it interesting that in both the Russia hoax and the Ukraine hoax, democrats claim that Trump “colluded” with foreigners to reveal the TRUTH about democrats?

    They don’t argue that the DNC emails and Biden’s corruption aren’t true. They argue that when voters learn the TRUTH, it must be because of collusion.


  31. Sherri Young says:

    Shawn Henry, President of CrowdStrike, is a former Executive Assistant Director of the FBI.


    • Jimmy Jack says:

      We should have guessed as much.

      My God the corruption has no bounds. None.


      • Sherri Young says:

        I knew he was former FBI. Comey testified to as much, making it his rationale for not seizing the servers. What I did not know was that Mr. Henry was so high in the pyramid. He retired in 2012 but his company actively colluded. Deep roots.


  32. Retired IG says:

    Thank you Sundance for this post where you bring out the entity Crowdstrike yet again. So many comments but thanks to foo, BobBoxBody, Az, Soldier/Cop/Griunt, Retired. I am weary from working on my land but had to just say howdy to so like minded people here at CTH. This tree has many branches. Just feeling so grateful for this place.
    In my experience with the Catholic Church and the dogma they have been spouting over the centuries, feels similar to what Pelosi supports these daze. Dogma. And it is failing and is it being exposed as as corrupt.
    . I don’t like President Trump in so many ways, Actually abhor his environmental decisions. Nonetheless, he is doing a GREAT SERVICE TO the USA. Exposing FAKE NEWS. If you can imagine, we have a President who if anyone is interested, IS TELLING US TO THINK ! USE OUR BRAINS And in these times , his message is really amazing.


  33. JoAnn Leichliter says:

    I have been calling attention to CrowdStrike and Ukrainian election meddling for about two years now. I guess somebody over there there and over here–finally–is goving it the attention it deserves.


  34. Doug Amos says:

    If Michael had a son it would be just like Joe Biden’s.


    • Jimmy Jack says:

      Both of his sons were corrupt. People forget it was Beau Biden who was responsible for bringing sham charges against the guy (Larry Sinclair I think) who was exposing Obama’s Chicago bath house romps and bring him to Delaware over check issues. He got the brain cancer before he got his. If payoff for that but he secured the Vo slot for his Dad with his machinations.

      Makes me think Jill needs a closer look too. All of the wives seem to be as corrupt as the husbands. Michelle, McCabe, Ohr etc.

    The folks at RealClearInvestigations issued a report back in July on CrowdStrike which appears fairly comprehensive and further validates what SD has been reporting here:


  36. Jimmy Jack says:

    Thank you for this clear analysis. I’ll share it with anyone I can to clear the murky waters.


  37. Jimmy Jack says:

    Thank you. The Biden explanation didn’t make sense to me bc that info has been in the public domain for ages.

    Between this and the Bolton firing both the Dems and Uniparty Republicans will be desperate to get rid of Trump.


  38. Atomic Hillbilly says:

    It’s become blatantly obvious that the dc establishment are a bunch of crooked traitors who tried to pull a coup against a duly elected president.

    Judging by the ongoing antics in the Capitol, dc is still rotten with treasonous coup plotters.

    Washington DC needs an enema.
    We can’t trust any of them.
    Until we see these swamprats being frog marched onto the prison busses we’re left with the conclusion that the entire federal apparatus is broken and corrupt.
