Former FBI Agent Responds To Trump’s Incessant Tweeting About The DNC Servers


Another quarrel broke out between the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the FBI over accusations that the bureau did not perform a self-supporting analysis of the party’s hacked servers. Buzzfeed was told by the DNC that the FBI never requested to gain access to their servers following the security breach.

It doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone that our President-elect Trump has something to tweet regarding the allegations against the FBI.

In the following tweet, Trump claims the DNC refused to allow the FBI access. However a former agent for the New York office of the FBI, Leo Taddeo, proclaims they do not need access to the servers or internal systems in nine out of 10 cases.

The controversy comes amidst the view of infuriated Democrats regarding the role of the FBI in the 2016 election. Multiple individuals – include outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) — have directly pointed fingers at FBI Director James Comey for Hillary Clinton’s shocking defeat in November.

Less than two weeks prior to Election Day, Comey wrote a letter to lawmakers claiming that investigators revealed new and unseen emails that were quite possibly significant to the bureau’s already finished exploration and destruction of Hilary Clinton’s personal email server and reputation.

In the days leading up to the election, the release of this letter blew up. Comey announcing that there were no new leads or significant findings in the emails did nothing to quiet the rampage. The altercation illuminated the questioning of whether or not the FBI dropped the ball in inquiring into the breach.

An outside source with experience in FBI and private sector investigations stated that it had become common to allow well-known and trusted companies to handle evidence – even after the FBI does their part.

Disputes continue over claims that Russia was behind the cyberattack on the DNC. The Obama administration called the attacks an attempt to interfere in the U.S. election, and with no doubts they are “100 percent certain” that it was led by Russia. In retaliation, Trump accuses the Obama administration of attempting to undermine his presidency.

The White House has been under intense pressure to release a non-classified account of the intelligence community’s inspection that is due to be accomplished by early next week.
