Is Crowdstrike a Shy Tech Firm or Providing Cover for The DNC?

Lots of folks forget the entire case for the allegation that the Russians hacked the DNC emails rests ONLY on Crowdstrike reports. The tech firm, hired by the Democrats, produced two reports: a) the first report expressed a moderate degree of confidence the Russians hacked the DNC; b) the second report produced a high degree of confidence.

America’s main media then produced a full-frontal media assault accusing the Russians.

But the primary problem is Crowdstrike’s second report was refuted by the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) which claimed Crowdstrike abused its data and also by the Ukrainian government which stated what Crowdstrike reported was false.

This forced Crowdstrike to weakly retract much of what it reported in its second report. Essentially, the IISS and Ukrainian government’s corrections thoroughly invalidated the second report.

But none of America’s mainstream media reported the problems with the second report and it was allowed to stand in full within the public’s consciousness.

Now, I don’t know about you … but this pisses me off!

No entity other than Crowdstrike has examined the DNC server. Neither the FBI or Homeland Security were allowed to forensically examine this server.

QUESTIONS:

1) Why hasn’t Crowdstrike produced evidence of large packets of data being transmitted from the DNC server? Such would have to exist if the DNC servers were hacked!

2) Why does Crowdstrike refuse to testify before congressional investigations? One would think the tech firm would support its findings!

Meanwhile, Wikileaks continues to insist that the DNC material it presented to the public was a consequence of leaks; not a hacking.

FoxNews has recently again raised the question about whether the government will be provided with an opportunity to examine the DNC servers:
