Skip to comments.DWS, Perkins Coie May Have Engaged CrowdStrike Instead Of FBI Without Consulting DNC Officers

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former head of the Democratic National Committee, did not tell the DNC’s own officers about a breach on its servers for more than a month after learning about it, according to then-DNC officer Donna Brazile.
Wasserman Schultz alerted the officers of the breach only when The Washington Post was about to make the revelations public, Brazile writes in an excerpt of the book Politico ran Thursday. The DNC instead enlisted the law firm of Perkins Coie to make major decisions, including how to handle the breach of its servers that led to an embarrassing email dump.
The timing suggests the DNC’s unusual and significant choice to have the private law firm CrowdStrike conduct the investigation into the breach, rather than turn the evidence over to law enforcement, was made without consulting DNC officers.
“She told [officers] about the hacking only minutes before the Washington Post broke the news,” Brazile wrote.
A June 14, 2016, article by the Post quoted “committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach” and said “DNC leaders were tipped to the hack in late April.”
“Chief executive Amy Dacey got a call from her operations chief saying that their information technology team had noticed some unusual network activity,” WaPo reported. Dacey enlisted a lawyer from Perkins Coie, who “called in” the private security firm CrowdStrike “to handle the DNC breach.”
Perkins Coie is the same law firm that paid for the Trump dossier using the DNC’s funds. DNC officials including Wasserman Schultz claim they had no idea that their organization had indirectly funded the infamous document.

Slowly grinding away. Awan Bros. and DNC are all connected via the Clinton Foundation.

We haven’t heard much about the Awan legal case. Hmmm, perhaps something materially important??

Donna Brazille dishes the dirt again. Go Donna!
“Looped in,” “reached out to.” The writing is so hip my eyes evolved mirrored shades while I read it.

Pass the popcorn please. Muahaha
Home Donna hires a food taster and keeps a gun handy.
Yeah, after slipping Hillary CNN debate questions, and untold other dubious actions, the purple-haired, victim two-card holder, runs for the hills.
Unlike Obama, Brazile is doing a whole lot more that “getting coffee” for the White Folks.
Was the unusual activity created by the murdered IT guy?
“Home Donna hires a food taster and keeps a gun handy.”
And uses the remote start on her car’s key fob!
And the CrowdStrike audit of the DNC servers is where?
Crowdstrike will be linked to FusionGPS.
