Skip to comments.The Russian Hack Narrative (ray76)

Hillary Clinton generates events to support her narrative.
For example, Clinton accused Trump of creating an atmosphere of violence at his rallies. To support the narrative she paid people to instigate trouble at Trump rallies.
She has long had the narrative that Trump is connected with Russia. It began with accusations that Trumps adviser Paul Manafort was tied to Russia, and that Trump too was tied to Russia. That went nowhere. Now months later the narrative has advanced to Russia hacked the DNC. This claim is based on Dmitri Alperovitch and Crowdstrike.
Given Clintons pattern of generating events to support her narrative, are there connections between Alperovitch/CrowdStrike and Clinton apart from the DNCs hiring of Crowdstrike? Is this outside expert actually an insider?
Alperovitch is a founder of CrowdStrike

$100M of funding for CrowdStrike is from Warburg Pincus.
$56M from Accel
$100M from Google
Timothy Geithner is President of Warburg Pincus
Geithner was Under Secretary of the Treasury for International Affairs under Bill Clinton.
At the Wikipedia page for Geithner is a photo of Geithner and SoS Hillary Clinton. They co-chaired the U.S.China Strategic and Economic Dialogue meeting in Washington in 2009 and in Beijing in 2010.
There are seven members of CrowdStrike Board of Directors, two of whom are also Board members at Warburg Pincus: Cary Davis and Joseph Landy.
CrowdStrike is heavily funded by Warburg Pincus and 30% of it's Board members are from Warburg Pincus, a company lead by Clinton associate Timothy Geithner. And CrowdStrike just so happens to be the promoter of the Russia-hacked-the-DNC narrative.
Since Alperovitch's financiers and directors are associated with Clinton his disinterest might reasonably be questioned.
2/23/2012 - Two executives who left security software maker McAfee after Intel Corp bought the company last year have started a firm that is developing technology to help corporations and government agencies track down elusive hackers.
Private equity firm Warburg Pincus led the initial Series A funding in the company, dubbed CrowdStrike.
The new company’s chief executive, George Kurtz, announced the formation of the company on his blog, www.georgekurtz.com.
Kurtz, the former worldwide chief technology offer of McAfee, has been working with Warburg on the project since November, when the private equity firm brought him on as a “executive in residence.”
Warburg’s executive in residence program is a CEO-in-waiting position in which the private equity firm helps entrepreneurs incubate ideas into companies in which it will eventually invest.
CrowdStrike’s other co-founders are Dmitri Alperovitch, former vice president of threat research at McAfee, and Gregg Marston, who worked as chief financial officer of Foundstone Inc, an IT security solutions provider that Kurtz sold to McAfee.
