by NICK GASS and DANIEL STRAUSS  |  published on June 14, 2016

Russian government hackers broke into the computer systems of the Democratic National Committee and accessed information about Democratic candidates as well as a database on opposition research against Donald Trump, POLITICO has confirmed.

The Washington Post first reported on Tuesday that the DNC was aware of suspicious activity in April; within 24 hours of the first signals that something was amiss, cyber firm CrowdStrike was brought in to install monitoring software to analyze the details of who was responsible.

The hackers had access to the information for approximately one year but were all cleared out over the last weekend, the Post reported, noting that the DNC said that no personal, financial or donor information had been accessed or taken.

“The security of our system is critical to our operation and to the confidence of the campaigns and state parties we work with,” said Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the DNC chairwoman, in a statement. “When we discovered the intrusion, we treated this like the serious incident it is and reached out to CrowdStrike immediately. Our team moved as quickly as possible to kick out the intruders and secure our network.”

    Democrat National office sure hasn’t improved their security very well since Watergate! Their records are spilled worldwide, but held secret to the citizens of the United States!

    • reggie

      We can’t blackmail them, other countries can.

  • Cleverfun

    Probably used the same Network Security Dude (Brian Pagliano) that handled Clinton’s Home Brew Server.

    What a bunch of Crooks!

  • GJK

    No Hillary hit the Reset Button and the Russian hackers had to go. Seeing how she doesn’t have her own private server anymore

  • Blue 3

    Man did they move fast to plug that hole. Within 24 hours they’ve identified and solved a complex problem complete with story and statement. Beefing up Benghazi didn’t strike me as a complex problem. Donor information gets an immediate response soldiers get obstinance, nuance, and ignorance.

  • Sharon Jones

    They will prove the fraud Democrats did to Trump the same way Obama tried to interfere with Bibi

  • Blue 3

    Can’t trust them to secure their Intel but we’re to trust that they know what was accessed. Look who broke the story and how it was dressed with a bow as to not break the donors confidence. Please. That’s how stupid they think their donor base is. Even sadder is the fact that their right.

    • reggie

      And these same clowns are going to secure the US? Yeah, right. Excluding this mess, it’s obvious citizens don’t count, except to pay the bills.

    • Steve Dolyniuk

      Their donor base is stupid !!

  • Rodney Steward

    Surprising that they let Debbie asserman do much of anything , it was just a few weeks ago her own party wanted her to step down for her stupidity and outrageous lying comments! She must have BLEW through the crowd to keep her job!!

    • Cleverfun

      Rodney, I’m with you there brother… was gonna leave a comment about DWS but it would probably be quickly deleted,

      Something about, “She must have BLEW through the crowd to keep her job!!” minus at least one word. lol

      • Rodney Steward

        LOL, YEP, LOL, she’s a POS!!!!

        • Cleverfun

          It’s amazing how many douchebags we have running our gubment…

          Did you hear that azz Alan Grayson say that an AR was a, “machine gun” that shoots 700 rounds a minute… Hell dude why not say 7000 rpm that sounds a lot scarier!

          • Rodney Steward

            HA, HA, 7000 rpm would be bad!! I remember when this clown made a slide show with poster paper when there was a big fuss about Obamacareless, and he said that the Rep. wanted you to die and fast! I knew then he was a full blown idiot!!

          • Cleverfun

            yeah, they should of used one of those in the movie Preditor instead of a GE Minigun… I wonder if GunMag Warehouse or Cabella’s carries the new 7000 round mag for an AR? Is that a Double Stack??

            It’s prolly the only thing that China won’t knock off, lmfao

  • KKmoderate

    After a year Wasserman? You jest right? So we “treated it and reached out” puleaze!!!

  • justinwachin

    Well at least the Russians didn’t break into Hillary’s secure home email server!-not.

    This shows that more than likely the DNC lost more information than they realized. It will be interesting to see if the Trump campaign tries to buy a copy of the hacked DNC files from Russia.

    • reggie

      Problem is that Russia probably wants hitlery. Thanks to her, they own 20% of our uranium. Most of the world want her because she OWES them. Do not delude yourself that they gave to the family mafia out of the kindness of their hearts. They bought her, and they want something for their money just like Frank Giustra did.

      • miz forever

        No, no, no reggie. The want the Benghazi Belle so they can buy her. Just like going into the supermarket. Pick a product and pay for it at the Clinton Foundation.

        • reggie

          You have a kind name for her, I call her hitlery, always without a capital letter, on a good day. Can’t print what I call her on a bad day.

  • ADRoberts

    Democrats hacked? Wonder if they gave Putin their password?

    • reggie

      Of course hitlery did, so she’d keep up with everything. Her excellent “insurance” for any eventuality. Her friend Putin then forwarded them to her. The tide has turned. Since she arranged the sale of 20% of our uranium to Russia, he owes her.

  • teaman

    They didn’t get much since there isn’t any intelligent s at the DNC!

    • miz forever

      Chalk up one for you, teaman. Best response yet.

  • Jose

    Of course nothing that hrc has done, said, deleted, or freely let other governments know will ever be said that it happened to hrc

  • SDofAZ

    Hackers, right! The damn dem wits probably gave em the password and asked em to do it.


    I think Debbie Wasserman Schultz is on her way out. Too many missteps!!

    • KKmoderate

      And she’ll leave with a pension for life? If I had set up this gig I would have played it exactly the same way. If I was a creep. Wow can’t the public see the scam? Term limits. Accountability! Are we even headed in that direction at all?

      • reggie

        Not with the thieves guarding the crown jewels, we won’t. How does it feel to be a disposable peon. No worries, millions of illegals ready to take your place.

      • Steve Dolyniuk

        In DC, there is no direction, because they are only interested in what they can do for themselves.

    • Cleverfun

      I like the way you think SCSOCIAL… I read your other post and you hold your ground.

      Big Thumbs UP to you!

    • Steve Dolyniuk

      How that brain dead Obama lover ever got elected in the first place, really makes me wonder, just what kind of people would vote for her. She is not only stupid, but nuts too !!

    • Neils Clausen

      I smell bacon, don’t you?

  • jdp

    jdp…There is not an institution in the USA that should not be secured if it has systems, networks etc. access to the internet.

  • jdp

    jdp…See Dems not only hurt themselves but others too because of willfull disregard for the law.All Gov’t system are to be secured against cyber attacks.

    • Sharon Jones

      The Democrats are crooked communist.

      • Cleverfun


  • barbarakelly

    Way to go Russian hackers. Bring down these good for nothing loathsome. bureaucrates who are destroying our once great country. Some evil motive has hit the Dems right in the kisser. They have all turned ugly.

    • Sharon Jones

      Yes in different than when Obama iinterfered with Bibi in Israel!!

  • jdp

    jdp…This is what you get when you don’t follow the law that all others must follow, exempting yourselves as above the law you deserve what you got,hacked.

  • Bruce

    Let me guess, the DNC server is in Hillary’s house in Chappaqua?

    • Terry Rushing

      Be careful, you may hurt poor Hillary’s feelings. (The same feelings she employed for the four state Department employees that were murdered while she slept.)

  • Donnie Buchanan

    They didn’t get any personal or financial information?? OK, I have a bridge for sale… 🙂

    • Cleverfun

      Put it on Craigs List!

    • Steve Dolyniuk

      And you know that for a fact ?

      • Donnie Buchanan

        What “fact” did I state?? NONE, but I do have an opinion.

  • Bob Bardo

    “The hackers had access to the information for approximately one year …”

    “Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the DNC chairwoman, in a statement. “When we discovered the intrusion, we treated this like the serious incident it is and reached out to CrowdStrike immediately. Our team moved as quickly as possible to kick out the intruders and secure our network.”


  • Bebe Nix

    Hopefully the Russians will make the information public.

    • Sharon Jones

      True that…hope they show home dems lied on Trump and it’s no different than when Obama interferedid with Bible in Israel!!!

  • paulie2

    What a bunch of boobs the DNC are.

  • Worried Vet

    Now that is ironic.
