DNC Says Reported “Sophisticated” Hack Attempt Was False Alarm
The DNC contacted the FBI on Tuesday after being alerted by a third party security system that a “sophisticated” attempt to hack its voterbase was under way.
It turns out the “sophisticated” hacking attempt was just a false alarm triggered by an internal security test.
On Thursday morning, the DNC walked back its initial claims they thwarted a hacker–and these bumbling idiots want to run the country.
- After an FBI investigation, it turned out that, according to the DNC’s chief security officer Bob Lord, a third party “not authorized by the DNC or its vendors” set up the site to test Democrats’ resiliency to phishing attacks.
Instead of waiting for analysis on the so-called hacking attempt, the DNC went out and cried to CNN about non-existent hackers, because narrative.
The DNC was supposedly hacked during the 2016 Presidential election, however, then-DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz dragged her feet and didn’t immediately run to the FBI for help.
In fact, the FBI was denied access to the DNC servers so we still have no forensic evidence that the servers were even hacked, and if hacked, by whom?
Donald Trump Jr. mocked the DNC after it turned out to be a false alarm.
Damn, they almost finally had something to justify the BS they've been selling for 2 years… Maybe next time.🤣 https://t.co/fB40kJHuYx
