Rush Limbaugh Bombshell: DNC Hack ‘Had To Be An Inside Job’
The Russia probe is premised on the claim that the Russians hacked the Democratic National Committee’s server during the 2016 election.
But we have never seen any evidence of it because the server was likely deliberately breached by a DNC staffer and never hacked, warns Rush Limbaugh.
“We still don’t know the data that was hacked from the DNC. They haven’t even told us that. They’ve just told us the Russians did it and that CrowdStrike proved it and that’s it. They’ve shown no evidence,” Limbaugh argued. “I’m gonna tell you who I think did hack the Democrat server. In fact, I think we already know. People have just forgotten. It was Democrat National Committee employees. People hired by Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz. It was the Pakistanis, folks. The Pakistanis hacked the Democrat National Committee servers.”
The establishment media has strategically ignored the months-long House IT scandal rocking congressional Democrats. This is even after the FBI’s investigation into the matter became public and Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s top IT aide Imran Awan was arrested trying to flee to Pakistan after wiring almost $300,000 to the country, Limbaugh pointed out.
“If you Google the Awan brothers from Pakistan, you won’t find many stories. It’s being totally ignored. But there were three brothers from Pakistan, and they were hot to trot computer specialists. They were IT stars. Debbie ‘Blabbermouth’ Schultz hired them and put them on the payroll,” he continued. “The story has been completely and totally covered up. It was very embarrassing to the DNC when it happened, and so the Drive-Bys have ignored the story.”
The Awan family are likely the culprits behind the DNC data breach, Limbaugh argued.
“I will not be surprised if it is eventually learned that these guys did it. They’re gone now. They are back in Pakistan. They were fired when it was discovered what they had done. Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz hires them, these kids from Pakistan made off with all kinds of computer data from all over the DNC, and anywhere from 44 to 80 Democrat congresspeople had their data stolen, and in some cases, even the hardware, the computers themselves were stolen.”
The special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election has entered its second year, but the American people are still in the dark about whether the DNC server was actually hacked.
“The important thing is that this investigation, if you really, really want to get back to the starting point was when Democrats said that the Russians hacked their servers. Same time the RNC servers were attacked but unsuccessfully,” he said. “They’ve just told us the Russians did it and that CrowdStrike proved it and that’s it. They’ve shown no evidence…There has yet to be — do not doubt me — there has yet to be any evidence furnished that the Russians did the hacking,” he said. “One of the most telling pieces of information, CrowdStrike was the third-party outfit that the Democrats hired to forensically examine their server. And CrowdStrike is who said that it looked to them like Russia or Guccifer 2.0, some people pretending to be the Russians maybe did it.”
Democrats’ refusal to let the FBI forensically examine any of the network data that would contain digital footprints identifying who came in and hacked data, is an indication that the server was not ever actually hacked, Limbaugh noted.
“Not to be redundant, but the Democrats refused to let the FBI forensically examine any of the network data that would, you know, have digital footprints that would maybe identify who came in and hacked data,” he said. “The hardware was there. Nobody made off with the server, nobody made off with the hardware of the network. It was all there. Just the data had been hacked and stolen. We’ve been told from the get-go the Russians did the hacking, and they did it to help Trump win. And everybody just accepted it.”
It would have been impossible for information from the DNC to have been hacked due to upload and download speeds, Limbaugh explained. Instead, someone with physical access to the network must have copied them in person to a USB drive.
“The maximum transfer speeds can be easily calculated. Well, the transfer speeds that were reported by CrowdStrike are impossible over the internet. If you spend time Googling this and delving into this, you will stumble across this fact. The speed at which the data that was stolen from the server was transferred are speeds that are impossible over the internet,” he said. “The speeds that were reported, the speeds that CrowdStrike reported from data transfer is identical to the speed if you’re writing something to a DVD or a thumb drive over USB. You can copy massive amounts of data very fast over USB to either a DVD or a thumb drive. You can transfer a couple terabytes in not very long. But over the internet, it would take impossibly longer.”
The forensic data is there. The transfer speed data is there. And it simply is not possible over the internet. So what does this mean? It means it had to be an inside job, it had to be somebody with access to the hardware, to the server, to computers, it had to be somebody who could plug in a thumb drive or an optical drive with DVD or what have you, a CD, and write the data that way, because if it’s over the internet, the amount of data we’re talking about here — and we still don’t know specifically what was even hacked.”
