Bernie campaign and DNC argue about what independent investigation of data breach found.

In any case, Bernie has withdrawn his lawsuit against the DNC.

http://www.politico.com/story/2016/04/bernie-sanders-dnc-lawsuit-campaign-222659

The Sanders campaign statement on Friday went on to say that an independent investigation vindicated the campaign in the matter.

“With the investigation behind us, the campaign has withdrawn its lawsuit against the DNC today but continues to implore the DNC to address the systemic instability that remains in its voter file system,” the statement said. “It is imperative that the DNC make it a top priority to prevent future data security failures in the voter file system, failures that only serve as unnecessary distractions to the democratic process.”

But in a separate statement, the DNC said that the independent investigation by CrowdStrike agreed upon by the Sanders campaign and the DNC “identified evidence of unauthorized access via four user accounts from the Bernie 2016 campaign. All unauthorized access occurred during a one-hour period from 10:41 to 11:42 EST on December 16, 2015.”

“During that time, the four users conducted 25 searches using proprietary Hillary for America score data across 11 states. All of the results of these searches were saved within the VoteBuilder system, with the exception of one instance where a user exported a statistical summary of a search using HFA scoring in New Hampshire,” the DNC statement said. “CrowdStrike found no evidence of unauthorized access by the Hillary for America or O’Malley for President campaigns. Today, the Sanders campaign also voluntarily dismissed the breach of contract action pending against the DNC.”

1. Sanders dismissed his disgraceful lawsuit because he knew he would lose.

2. “CrowdStrike found no evidence of ...

... of unauthorized access by the Hillary for America or O’Malley for President campaigns."

Will this put an end to the "Hillary stole my email address" posts? I doubt it.

6. Yeah, if you read carefully you could see he was denying "exporting" the data

to an outside system. But the claim had always been that the Bernie campaign was searching through the data and saving results in their part of the system. The independent investigation confirmed that.

8. Ah the wonderful journalism of Politico.

 

But in a separate statement, the DNC said that the independent investigation by CrowdStrike agreed upon by the Sanders campaign and the DNC “identified evidence of unauthorized access via four user accounts from the Bernie 2016 campaign. All unauthorized access occurred during a one-hour period from 10:41 to 11:42 EST on December 16, 2015.”


The above is a statement made by the DNC.

Bernie Sanders Campaign Manager Jeff Weaver said “We are gratified by the results of this independent investigation.”
Now, four months later, an independent investigation of the firewall failures in the DNC’s shared voter file database has definitively confirmed that the original claims by the DNC and the Clinton campaign were wholly inaccurate – the Sanders campaign never “stole” any voter file data; the Sanders campaign never “exported” any unauthorized voter file data; and the Sanders campaign certainly never had access to the Clinton campaign’s “strategic road map.”


The lawsuit was against the DNC's actions that froze access for Sanders campaign to their own data.

10. Weaver's statement left them LOTS of wiggle room -- but it is false.

The claims of the Clinton campaign were not "wholly inaccurate." The claim wasn't restricted to possibly stealing or exporting data; the claim was that the Sanders guy searched through Clinton's proprietary data and saved the results of those searches in the system. And he did. And Weaver doesn't deny that -- he just skirts the issue and hopes no one notices.

12. Yes, it did.

The DNC reported that it did AND Bernie's campaign did not deny it. They just skirted the real issue -- the Bernie campaign's unauthorized searches through Hillary's proprietary data -- in their own statement.

And they withdrew their lawsuit, which was a tacit admission that the investigation had not found in their favor.

But in a separate statement, the DNC said that the independent investigation by CrowdStrike agreed upon by the Sanders campaign and the DNC “identified evidence of unauthorized access via four user accounts from the Bernie 2016 campaign. All unauthorized access occurred during a one-hour period from 10:41 to 11:42 EST on December 16, 2015.”

14. I am quoting the DNC AND Bernie's statement that didn't directly contradict it -- just skirted

the issue.

The DNC's un-contradicted claim is that Bernie's campaign made unauthorized searches of Hillary's proprietary database, and saved the results of the searches. Naughty, naughty -- even if they didn't export them to another server. Which is why the guy got fired and why Bernie finally withdrew the lawsuit.

15. None of that is true as indicated by the investigation. You quoted bullcrap put out by the DNC.

 

Now, four months later, an independent investigation of the firewall failures in the DNC’s shared voter file database has definitively confirmed that the original claims by the DNC and the Clinton campaign were wholly inaccurate – the Sanders campaign never “stole” any voter file data; the Sanders campaign never “exported” any unauthorized voter file data; and the Sanders campaign certainly never had access to the Clinton campaign’s “strategic road map.”

16. That is Weaver's bullcrap and NOWHERE in it does it address the multiple unauthorized SEARCHES

of Hillary's database. The fact that they didn't export the data to another server doesn't change the fact that they made unauthorized searches of her database and saved the results.

22. No wild accusations. Just a simple comparison of the DNC statement and the Sanders campaign

statement that does not contradict the damning conclusion: the independent investigation CONFIRMED that his people had been searching through and saving data from Hillary's proprietary database. And Weaver's statement contains nothing to contradict this.

http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-trailguide-04292016-bernie-sanders-drops-lawsuit-against-dnc-1461967648-htmlstory.html

The campaign of Bernie Sanders has dropped a lawsuit it filed in December against the Democratic National Committee, after the national party cut off its access to crucial voter data.

The move came Friday as the DNC released its independent investigation of the breach , which confirmed much of what was already known about the event. During the breach, Sanders staffers accessed proprietary voter data owned by the campaign of front-runner Hillary Clinton. They conducted 25 searches over an hour.

23. You are quoting what the DNC is saying not what the "independent investigation said."

 

The DNC hasn't released the actual report of the investigation only stating their interpretation.

9. Sorry, but from the beginning on

the DNC has lost every bit of credibility.

If they claimed now that it is raining, I would
have to go out to check it, and probably find
great sunshine there.DWS bears a lot of
responsibility for all of this.
