(DailyCaller) Russian hackers retained access to the Democratic National Committee’s network until October 2016, despite private security firm CrowdStrike’s claim that it had expelled all intruders months earlier, according to an indictment filed Friday against 12 Russian intelligence operatives.

The indictment, filed by the office of Special Council Robert Mueller, reveals that CrowdStrike was unsuccessful in expelling intruders from the DNC’s networks in June and that a malicious program “remained on the DNC network until in or around October 2016.”

The hackers also gained access to DNC computers hosted on a third-party cloud-computing service around September 2016, which enabled them to steal data from the DNC by creating backups, or snapshots, of the DNC’s cloud-based systems.

The revelation contradicts claims made by CrowdStrike, DNC officials and Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz that all intruders had been kicked out of the DNC by June 2016.

CrowdStrike said it “immediately identified” and took action against the Russian intruders in a June 2016 blog post touting its work in securing the DNC’s servers.

DNC officials and security experts told The Washington Post in June 2016 that all hackers were expelled from the DNC’s network in a “major computer cleanup campaign” earlier that month.

“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,” Wasserman Schultz told The Post.

The New York Times expanded on CrowdStrike’s cleanup campaign in a December 2016 article, saying the security firm replaced the DNC’s entire computer system “in total secrecy” within six weeks of being retained in April 2016.

“All laptops were turned in and the hard drives wiped clean, with the uninfected information on them imaged to new drives,” The Times reported.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the charges against 12 Russian intelligence officers on Friday. He said the indictment contains no allegation that any American citizen committed a crime, and there is no allegation the Russian hackers changed the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

  1. So who will testify in any court proceeding? Apparently not the FBI.

  2. So, the indictment contained no allegation that any American citizen committed a crime. I guess that Rosenstein didn’t consider the DNC-Clinton campaigns conspiring to screw Bernie Sanders out of the Democratic nomination to be “a crime;” but, I’d bet that many of Bernie’s supporters would strongly disagree.

    It wasn’t until Oct. 2016 that Obama had the 33 Russians expelled from DC. Interesting timing wouldn’t you say.
    Just like the Clinton cabal, blame 12 Russian’s. I hope they fight back and come up with everything the DOJ, FBI, Clinton,Obama, Soros, CIA and the rest have been hiding from the American people all these years. Maybe then we’ll actually see some arrests, not of Russian’s either.
    Judicial Watch still waiting for documents from DOJ, FBI for months and years now. What are they hiding ?

  4. ya know.
    notice that only one Russian company challenged Mueller a couple months back and he BLINKED, it’s interesting he has indicted Russians knowing they will NEVER BE ARRESTED PERIOD.
    and all Mueller has done is go after Trump supporters who basically are low hanging fruit and NO COLLUSION HAS BEEN EXPOSED, AND NONE WILL.
    MUELLER, ROSENSTEIN, AND SESSIONS ALL NEED FIRED AND THE FIRST TWO THEMSELVES NEED INDICTED FOR OBSTRUCTING OF JUSTICE.

  5. There we have it, the DNC and their entire cabal were simply stopping hackers and certainly committed no crimes. We the peons have 0 power to do anything. Once they get to DC they are turned within a week. They see the babbles and cash lose every ounce of integrity if it ever existed.
