  • DNC, DCCC Pay $1.3 Million for Hillary Group’s Lists

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | April 25, 2018 | by Joe Schoffstall
    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) paid $1.3 million to a "resistance" group led by Hillary Clinton for the acquisition of its lists, filings show. Clinton launched Onward Together in April of last year with the intent of providing funding to established liberal groups that could quickly counter President Donald Trump using direct action and protests. Last May, Clinton pushed $800,000 from her campaign funds to her group. The DNC, which is millions of dollars in debt, found a way to cut hefty checks to Clinton's group even as they neglected state Democratic parties.

    DNC's $300,000 payment was made as state Democratic parties were waiting on promised funding The cash-strapped Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) have combined to pay Hillary Clinton's "resistance" group nearly $900,000 for list acquisitions, Federal Election Commission filings show. The DNC, which is in the midst of facing financial hardships, conjured up $300,000 on Jan. 8 to pay Onward Together, Clinton's group, for "list acquisition," according to the FEC filings. The payment was made to Clinton's organization as state Democratic parties were waiting on $10 million in funding for rebuilding efforts that was initially...

    A second woman has now accused Democratic Nevada Rep. Ruben Kihuen of sexual misconduct. Kihuen repeatedly touched the women’s legs or buttocks without her consent, the woman told the Nevada Independent. The anonymous woman also showed the paper hundreds of suggestive text messages from Kihuen that included comments such as, “I’m sure you look even better naked.” In one message, he asked her “What color are your panties?” She declined to tell him, which Kihuen said made him “sad,” claiming his “day can’t go on without knowing.”
  • Nevada Democrats blast party chair for ‘racist’ actions against black women

    Las Vegas Review-Journal ^ | 12/14/2017 | Victor Joecks
    A meeting last week of the Clark County Democratic Party descended into chaos amid charges that party chair Donna West had engaged in “racist” behavior. This summer, Democrats elected Erika Washington, an African-American woman, to the CCDP’s No. 2 spot. One of her jobs was to fill the party’s Political Organizing Committee, which works on voter outreach and mobilization. Washington selected three African-American women to serve. That wasn’t acceptable to West, a white woman, because she felt it would put too many black women on the 13-member committee. “Also per the bylaws, the Political Action shall reflect the diversity of...

    The Republican Party is working diligently to support Hispanics who are eager to become civically engaged leaders in their communities. Last month, I led a Republican Leadership Initiative event in Las Vegas to teach local activists how to mobilize their communities around issues that affect them. The training — tailored to a Spanish-speaking audience — was an opportunity to share our conservative message as we work to earn the widespread support of people from all backgrounds, nationwide. To win elections in 2018 and beyond, we must ensure that Americans know that our values of limited government and economic freedom are...

    Democratic Rep. Ruben Kihuen’s future remains in question amid calls to resign and a second accuser alleging he sexually harassed her while he was in the Nevada state Senate. The Nevada Independent reported Wednesday night that a lobbyist claimed Kihuen sent her hundreds of text messages, some of them suggestive, and touched her inappropriately. Two weeks ago, Buzzfeed reported allegations that Kihuen harassed a former campaign staf

    Rep. Ruben Kihuen said Saturday he would not seek re-election following accusations of sexually inappropriate behavior with women. “I want to state clearly again that I deny the allegations in question,” Kihuen, D-Nev., said in a statement to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I am committed to fully cooperating with the House Ethics Committee and look forward to clearing my name.” Democratic Party leaders have called for Kihuen to step down over the charges. On Saturday, Kihuen said he would serve out his two-year term. But he added that the allegations would a distract from a thorough discussion of issues in...

    Rep. Ruben Kihuen, D-Nev., announced Saturday that he would not seek re-election in the wake of multiple sexual harassment allegations against him. "I want to state clearly again that I deny the allegations in question," Kihuen said in a statement first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. However, the freshman congressman added that "it is in the best interests of my family and my constituents to complete my term in Congress and not seek re-election." The announcement by Kihuen, 37, came one day after the House Ethics Committee announced it had opened an investigation into the harassment claims against him....
  • Becerra Tried To Block Server Admin Over Red Flags, But Logins Continued, With Muted Reaction

    Xavier Becerra, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, barely reacted when he learned the caucus server had been infiltrated in 2016, although he loudly decried the hack of the Democratic National Committee that happened around that same time. No one has faced punishment for the caucus server infiltration. The then-congressman, who is now California’s attorney general, refused to articulate even the barest details of the cyber breach at a press conference Wednesday, and would not say whether he’s seeking criminal charges against longtime IT aide Imran Awan and his family. Members of the Awan family logged on to the...

    The top Democrat in the House is calling on a Nevada congressman to resign amid an allegation of sexual misconduct. In a statement early Saturday morning, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says she spoke to Rep. Ruben Kihuen Friday night. She says the allegation against him from a former aide was convincing and in light of the accusation, “Congressman Kihuen should resign.” BuzzFeed News had reported that Kihuen is alleged to have repeatedly made sexual advances toward an aide during his 2016 congressional campaign.

    Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D-Nev.) said Tuesday he will not resign from his post amid allegations of sexual harassment from a former staffer. Kihuen asserted in an ABC News interview that party leaders knew last year about the woman's allegations of sexual misconduct, but did not take action against his campaign. A woman who previously worked as the finance director for Kihuen alleged that she was harassed by the Nevada Democrat while working on his 2016 campaign, BuzzFeed reported last week.

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 12/5/17 | Paul Crookston
    Democratic Party leaders are calling for Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D., Nev.) to resign over sexual harassment allegations, but he is refusing to do so—and even making counter accusations. Kihuen told ABC News that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), as well as Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (N.M.), knew about the allegations last year and did nothing. "I do find it interesting that the DCCC, Leader Pelosi and Chairman Ben Ray Lujan—they knew about these allegations last year," Kihuen said. "They looked into them. They didn't find anything, and they continued investing millions of dollars...
  • Democrat Accused Of Sexual Harassment (says) Pelosi Knew And Did Nothing About It

    12/06/2017 12:05:34 PM PST · by Strac6 · 27 replies
    A first-term Democratic congressman accused of sexual harassment said that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi knew about the allegations while he was running for office and supported him anyway, putting millions of dollars behind his 2016 congressional campaign. During his campaign, Nevada Rep. Ruben Kihuen allegedly propositioned a female staffer for sex on multiple occasions and touched her thighs. The staffer resigned during Kuhen’s primary campaign as a result of his harassment, she told BuzzFeed. Pelosi was quick to demand Kihuen’s resignation after the allegations became public, but she actually has known about the harassment allegations for a while, Kihuen...
  • Nancy Pelosi hauls in $26 million for Democrats this year

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 31, 2017 | by Melissa Quinn
    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has brought in nearly $26 million for the Democratic Party so far this year, according to a report. The majority of the $25.9 million Pelosi raised will go to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which will lead the Democrats' efforts to regain control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections. This year, the minority leader has sent the DCCC $24.7 million, which is $10 million more than Pelosi raised for the committee in the same period two years ago, according to the Washington Post. Pelosi raised millions through three "Speakers Cabinet" VIP events...

    A mysterious IT specialist, who goes by the name The Forensicator, published a detailed report that appears to disprove the theory that the DNC was hacked by Russia. The documents were copied on July 5th, five days before Seth Rich was murdered. The Forensicator summarized the complex report into 10 bullet points.
  • New Research Shows Guccifer 2.0 Files Were Copied Locally, Not Hacked

    07/09/2017 2:28:09 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 105 replies
    New meta-analysis has emerged from a document published today by an independent researcher known as The Forensicator, which suggests that files eventually published by the Guccifer 2.0 persona were likely initially downloaded by a person with physical access to a computer connected to the internal DNC network. The individual most likely used a USB drive to copy the information. The groundbreaking new analysis irrevocably destroys the Russian hacking narrative, and calls the actions of Crowdstrike and the DNC into question. The document supplied to Disobedient Media via Adam Carter was authored by an individual known as The Forensicator. The full...
  • Hacked computer server that handled DNC email remains out of reach of Russia investigators

    07/05/2017 8:53:47 PM PDT · by bryan999 · 42 replies
    It is perhaps the key piece of forensic evidence in Russia’s suspected efforts to sway the November presidential election, but federal investigators have yet to get their hands on the hacked computer server that handled email from the Democratic National Committee. Indeed, the only cybersecurity specialists who have taken a look at the server are from CrowdStrike, the Irvine, California-based private cybersecurity company that the DNC hired to investigate the hack — but which has come under fire itself for its work. Some critics say CrowdStrike’s evidence for blaming Russia for the hack is thin. Members of Congress say they...

    Authored by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog, Last week, I published two posts on cyber security firm CrowdStrike after becoming aware of inaccuracies in one of its key reports used to bolster the claim that operatives of the Russian government had hacked into the DNC. This is extremely important since the DNC hired CrowdStrike to look into its hack, and at the same time denied FBI access to its servers. Before reading any further, you should read last week’s articles if you missed them the first time. Credibility of Cyber Firm that Claimed Russia Hacked the DNC Comes Under Serious Question What...
  • DCCC website was ridiculously easy for Guccifer 2.0 to hack

    American Thinker ^ | 14 Aug, 2016 | Richard Henry Lee
    The security for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) website was almost non-existent which made it easy for Guccifer 2.0 to hack. Like Hillary with her reckless use of a personal email server, the DCCC is also guilty of failing to secure their website. The password was shared with many people on a spreadsheet and the site itself did not incorporate the use of an encrypted connection. The password itself was “changeme” (without the quotes) which is quite obvious. The website for login was http://dccc.org/wp-admin/ which means the website uses WordPress and the login ID was DCCCPress which is also...
