Bombshell Report: Republicans Hacked After Hiring Dem’s Security Firm With A ROTTEN History
The National Republican Congressional Committee hire the same firm that allowed the Democrats’ emails to be hacked but no one knows why? The House GOP campaign arm suffered a major hack during the 2018 midterm campaigns, exposing thousands of sensitive emails to an outside intruder, according to three senior party officials, Politico reported.
According to American Thinker, Crowdstrike is the same firm that claimed that it was the Russians who hacked the Dems after then-DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz reportedly refused to let the FBI examine the computers.
The emails of four top NRCC officials were stolen in a major hack that was detected in April — eight months ago, Politico reported Tuesday. The NRCC did not tell Republican leaders or the public that it had been hacked, though it did notify the FBI.
The NRCC would not say what information was compromised.
However, senior House Republicans — including Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California and Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana — were not informed of the hack until Politico contacted the NRCC on Monday with questions about the episode. Rank-and-file House Republicans were not told, either.
Rep. Steve Stivers of Ohio, who served as NRCC chairman this past election cycle, did not respond to repeated requests for comment.
Committee officials said they decided to withhold the information because they were intent on conducting their own investigation and feared that revealing the hack would compromise efforts to find the culprit. However, party officials would not say how far back the hack goes or if they believe it was done by a foreign or homegrown organization.
“We don’t want to get into details about what was taken because it’s an ongoing investigation,” a senior party official told Politico. “Let’s say they had access to four active accounts. I think you can draw from that.”
I guess we will all just hold our breaths to find out. The question still remains; why in the heck would anyone hire this company after the massive DNC hack a few years back? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
