Trump Asks “What Is Going on” After it Emerges Democrats Did Not Cooperate With FBI Hack Probe

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Closing off his tweeting on Thursday evening, the president-elect questioned why the Democratic National Committee did not reportedly cooperate with the FBI’s investigation of hacks into its servers; a hack which the US intelligence agencies were quick to conclude was the action of Russia despite, allegedly, not having seen all the evidence.

As BuzzFeed initially reproted, while the DNC says the FBI never requested access to its servers after they were breached, a senior law enforcement official said the FBI repeatedly asked for access “only to be rebuffed.”  If the FBI itself never examined DNC servers, Trump wrote on Twitter, “how and why are they so sure about hacking”? 

“What is going on?” Trump added.

The Democratic National Committee would not allow the FBI to study or see its computer info after it was supposedly hacked by Russia……

So how and why are they so sure about hacking if they never even requested an examination of the computer servers? What is going on?

Earlier in the week DNC spokesman Eric Walker told BuzzFeed this week that while the DNC had several meetings with FBI agents, FBI officials “never requested access” to DNC servers.

“The DNC had several meetings with representatives of the FBI’s Cyber Division and its Washington (D.C.) Field Office, the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, and U.S. Attorney’s Offices,” he said, adding, “the FBI never requested access to the DNC’s computer servers.”

And according to BuzzFeed, no U.S. intelligence agency has done an independent forensics analysis on the servers. Instead, the FBI has relied on an analysis from CrowdStrike, the third-party security firm that investigated the DNC breach.

However, as The Hill notes, a senior law enforcement official on Thursday disputed the DNC’s characterization that the FBI never requested access to the DNC servers.

Meanwhile, later on Friday Donald Trump will have his official breifing by intelligence services explaining to him why they are convinced that Russia was the perpetrator behind the hack. Trump’s public reaction to that particular meeting could have huge consequences for the future direction of the conflict between Trump and the various US intelligence agencies which, according to a recent WSJ report, he is seeking to overhaul in an attempt to “depoliticize” them, a report which however was denied by Trump’s spokesman on Thursday.

    “As BuzzFeed initially reproted” what? Did you mean the word reported?

    All the US intelligence agencies have been infiltrated and corrupt just like every other faucet of the American government. Both James Comey and James R. Clapper have been compromised and are probably being blackmailed by the Bush/Clinton sociopaths. I think these officials will probably threaten Trumps life and family not brief him on intelligence that does not exist.

    Let’s all try to keep in perspective the fact that Wikileaks earned their long established credibility. They are known for providing irrefutable information and evidence obtained through credible government leaks and whistle-blowers. The sad part for these bozos fighting the Trump presidency is that the emails only provide a limited window exposing their corruption. Believe me, there is a whole lot more evidence that backs this up and has helped legitimate law enforcement authorities and federal prosecutors construct winnable cases.

    From what I understand the amount of implicating evidence accumulated including Barrack Obama’s forged birth certificate pretty much guarantees that the good guys in government who are remaining silent for now a slam dunk prosecution. Before the smoke clears all the participants in the seditious and subversive maneuvers against the United States of America will be dealt with without delay.

    The orchestrators of illegal action, the financiers, the collaborators in the media, the congressional turncoats, those in intelligence and law enforcement who participated are all going to prison. They are being set up by true patriots as we speak. The turd crumbs the pied pipers threw out to lead brain dead American’s to accept their perverted ideology has stuck by the pound to the soles of their shoes. The tracks of this poop across the social carpet leads strait back to them, there is no plausible deniability.

    This my friends is a perfect example of why God says that the intellect of man is foolishness. I wonder, could He have been thinking of the Nazis, I mean the progressive criminals when He inspired his revelation?
