Why Was “Powered by NGP Van” — A Supposedly Neutral DNC Data Corp. — on Hillary’s Bus?

[NOTE: Originally written and published as a Facebook Note. I’ve always wondered if this action played some kind of a role with the inception of Russiagate.]

What’s Good For the Goose Should Be Good For the Gander

[UPDATE TO WHAT’S DESCRIBED BELOW: The DNC appears intent on digging deeper into its own dipshit. It now has hired Kroll to investigate the data breach. Described in a profile in The New Yorker, Kroll is a firm comprised of “keepers of innumerable embarrassing, probably career-destroying, possibly corporation-destroying secrets.” An example of the firm’s primary clients includes Goldman-Sachs and Chevron.]

Apparently, the same kind of DNC Voter Data Base breach happened in 2008, except then it was the Clinton campaign accessing the breach. There were no penalties against the Clinton campaign. Juxtapositioned to how the DNC treated the Sanders campaign compared to how it treated the Clinton campaign for the same kind of breach, clearly a bias exists on the part of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as she suspended the Sanders campaign from accessing its own data due to the breach.

The DNC, under Wasserman-Schultz’s leadership, hired the NGP VAN tech firm to oversee the DNC’s voter data base to which all of the presidential campaigns contribute their own demographic tracking data.

Important Questions:

1) Why was the Sanders campaign recently penalized by DNC chair Wasserman-Schultz, whereas the Clinton campaign was not penalized for the same kind of infraction in 2008?

2) Is it ironic Wasserman-Schultz was Clinton’s campaign co-chair during her 2008 campaign for president, this when the above-referenced Clinton infraction occurred?

3) Are the O’Malley and Sanders campaigns prejudiced by Clinton’s inside relationship with DNC chair?

4) What is the relationship between the NGP VAN and the Clinton campaign and is there any high degree of confidence that the Clinton campaign did not have access to the Sanders campaign data?

5) How is it that NGP VAN’s vice president, Aharon Wasserman, happens also to be DNC chair Debbie Wassserman-Schultz’s nephew? Also, is it interesting that NGP VAN’s CEO, Stu Trevelyan, worked in the Clinton White House and that the firm’s systems administrator, Dara Kordestani, has worked on previous Hillary Clinton campaigns?
