FBI Admits CrowdStrike Never Produced a Final Report on Alleged ‘Russian Hacking’ of DNC Servers
June 17, 2019 (EIRNS)—Ray McGovern posted an article today in Consortium News under the title: “FBI Never Saw CrowdStrike Unredacted or Final Report on Alleged Russian Hacking Because None Was Produced.” McGovern, a former CIA analyst, and co-founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), reports on that Trump friend Roger Stone, whom the government has hit with charges in the Russiagate case, made pre-trial requests from the government for unredacted reports from cyber-security agency CrowdStrike on its analysis of the forensics of the DNC computers, which it claimed were hacked by the Russians. The FBI responded to the request by asserting that they had no such documents. So, not only did the FBI never bother to conduct its own forensic study (which even then-Director James Comey admitted would have been far more professional), but it never even received a final unredacted report from the virulently anti-Russia, Atlantic Council-linked team at CrowdStrike.
“It is proving very difficult for some of my old FBI friends and others to believe that Comey and other justice, intelligence, and security officials at the very top could have played fast and loose with the Constitution and the law and lived a lie over the past few years. ‘How did they ever think they could get away with it?’ they ask.”
The answer, he concludes, is provided by Comey, in his book A Higher Loyalty: “I was making decisions in an environment where Hillary Clinton was sure to be the next President,” and all their crimes would be forever buried.
