Russian Hack Story Collapsing: Tech Company Hired by DNC, Forced to Retract Statements after Wrongfully Blaming Russians for Hacking

  • Russian Hack Story Collapsing: Tech Company Hired by DNC, Forced to Retract Statements after Wrongfully Blaming Russians for Hacking

    Can you remember back to the presidential campaign? I know it seems like a long time ago, but please try. Do you remember how, after the DNC emails began leaking, Democrats told us that they’d been hacked by the Russians? Do you remember how the DNC came to learn this? It was a tech company called CrowdStrike that the DNC hired to see how their emails were accessed and then taken. The founder of CrowdStrike has very close ties to the Obama team, is friends with Hillary Clinton, and is connected closely to Ukranian oligarch Victor Pinchuk (who is quite friendly with the Democrat Party).


    It was CrowdStrike that uncovered the “Russian hacking” of the DNC, and when the DNC refused to allow the FBI access to their servers to see the evidence for themselves, it was CrowdStrike who told the FBI that it was the Russians.

    Here’s the problem with this: CrowdStrike’s reputation is currently unraveling. Why? It seems that CrowdStrike is as politically motivated as everyone else in Washington, D.C. The company is itself an opponent of Vladimir Putin and Russia, and was recently caught fabricating a report that attempted to blame Russian hacking for problems with Urkanian military technology.

    Yes, you read that correctly. CrowdStrike was forced to retract portions of a report that blamed Russian hacking for problems that didn’t actually exist. This realization completely undermines any reason that we have to trust their analysis of the DNC servers. Since the DNC refused to allow the FBI access, we only have CrowdStrike’s word that the Russians hacked the DNC. Now that we know CrowdStrike has been caught lying about Russian hacking in another instance, we simply cannot give them the benefit of the doubt on the DNC email leak.
