— The recently IPO’d tech firm sure is good at attracting money and controversy!

[RE: ABOVE CHART (compiled by Adam Carter, @with_integrity) — Notice how DNC emails were acquired on a date after Crowdstrike installed its preventative Falcon defensive application. Falcon was meant to block continued hacking access, however DNC documents were accessed after its installation. This implies the documents were leaked onto a memory stick thumb drive. Expert forensic metadata analysis also proves the timing of the data download consistent with a memory stick.]

Why am I writing this? It’s pretty simple. I’m an elderly musician, a songwriter, on medical disability who happens to also have a pretty good ear for politics. I also believe in fair elections and do not believe democratically-elected governments should be overthrown.

Who is Pasquale Mattozzi?

I don’t know him. He’s probably not a bad guy. He works for Crowdstrike, the tech firm hired by the DNC to examine and defend its computer system. That the DNC emails were accessed, likely from an inside leak, after Crowdstrike’s defensive intervention is remarkable. It’s more than odd, certainly a violation of FBI protocol, that given the gravity of the incident the FBI was repeatedly denied access to the DNC computers for its own forensic analysis.

Below is Mattozzi’s Twitter account:

So why we should we be thinking about him?

He made the below tweet, at 2:38 on January 23, 2019, claiming family in Venezuela sent him a photo of Venezuela’s resistance. Supporting this tweet (now since removed after being called out by Twitter’s eagle eyes) are additional tweets to his followers, encouraging everyone to resist the Nicolás Maduro Venezuelan government. Basically, his message is: Support the Venezuelan coup d’état!

Why is a Crowdstrike employee overtly supporting Venezuela’s resistance movement and using a revisionist propaganda video in the process? Propaganda on Venezuela? I mean it’s not like Crowdstrike wasn’t involved with the Russiagate propaganda. Right?

Below is the tweet Mattozzi removed:

But there’s a huge-huge problem. The photo he’s claiming came from family in Venezuela is actually a screen shot from a video on Youtube of a Venezuelan rally that was actually filmed in 2016. So the photo Mottozzi tweeted is not from 2019. Note how the video (below) and the screenshot (above) are the same:

This discovery information was ascertained by Twitter user Nina Illingworth, a writer and analyst:

Relative to Crowdstrike and the DNC controversy:

I noticed from reviewing Mattozzi’s Twitter page he’s a basketball fan. Should he somehow get to read this, he might enjoy my proposed rule changes for how basketball is scored and games are won.
