Skip to comments.Fix Is In: House Committee on ‘Russian Hacking’ Includes Only DNC-Hired Tech Experts
Posted on 03/09/2017 10:31:42 AM PST by COUNTrecount
A list of witnesses scheduled to appear at a House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Open Hearing on Russian Active Measures contains a glaring problem: the only technical experts scheduled to testify are from CrowdStrike. CrowdStrike is a firm hired by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and has become the primary source of the narrative about Russian hacking of the 2016 election and has acted as a mouthpiece for the Democrats since last June.
The initial witness list released by House Intelligence includes a number of intelligence officials, all appointed during the Obama administration, such as former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, but the sole technical people on the invitation list are two representatives of CrowdStrike, President Shawn Henry, and the co-founder Dmitri Alperovitch.
Breitbart News has interviewed tech experts who do not agree with the CrowdStrike assessment or Obama administrations claims that the DNC/DCCC hacks clearly committed by Russian state actors, with much criticism aimed at the FBI/DHS Joint Analysis Report (JAR) Grizzly Steppe that was released at the end of December. As ZDNet reported after the JAR report was released by the Obama administration on the same day that they announced sanctions against Russia:
The JAR included specific indicators of compromise, including IP addresses and a PHP malware sample. But what does this really prove? Wordfence, a WordPress security company specializing in analyzing PHP malware, examined these indicators and didnt find any hard evidence of Russian involvement. Instead, Wordfence found the attack software was P.AS. 3.1.0, an out-of-date, web-shell hacking tool. The newest version, 4.1.1b, is more sophisticated. Its website claims it was written in the Ukraine.

the stupid party stays stupid....
Who held their meetings at the back room of the pizza place, no doubt.
Just a compromise with evil is still evil, so too compromise with so-called “progressivism” is still progressivism.
We should be about destroying these people, not bringing them onboard.
Perhaps the missing Iranian Brothers will re-appear!
This best not be allowed to stand. They better have a better witness list. CrowdStrike is die hard libtard
The ‘house’ needs to get this bunch on the record first. Let them think they are the only ‘show and tell’ going to be called to testify.
What are the Democrats doing to prevent terrorist attacks instead of made up scandals?
sorry, Pakistani brothers
but wait! it gets worse!
Boy, I bet this would never happen if the Republicans had control of the House ...
Oh, wait a minute ...
This proves to me that the republicans are colluding to try and impeach Trump.
They keep this up they BETTER be careful what they wish for things are about to BLOW UP on the Dems!!!
Or the Uniparty continuing its attack on Trump and trying to build a fanciful case for impeachment.
Someone is going to have to explain why the DNC -- or CrowdStrike -- never let the FBI access the DNC network after "the Russians" allegedly hacked it.
Did they include the three Muslim IT brothers who worked at DNC and on the Dem side of Capital Hill?
The CORRUPT UNIPARTY at work. Despicable.
Interesting how the republicans rush to investigate Donald Trump instead of doing the JOB WE ELECTED THEM TO DO.
Trump reads breitbart.com.
