Ever since the world first learned about the DNC hack last year, there has been mass confusion over one peculiar decision made by then DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz: why, if DNC leaders thought they were the victim of a massive cyber attack by a hostile foreign government seeking to undermine their political ambitions, would they shun FBI help and instead engage the private security firm CrowdStrike?

The response was so confounding, in fact, it has resulted in several conspiracy theories attempting to explain why DWS would make such a seemingly bizarre decision and what, if anything, she was attempted to hide.

Now, efforts to rationally explain the DNC’s response to their server hack have grown even more difficult after Donna Brazile revealed for the first time that DWS and Hillary’s campaign general counsel Marc Elias (yes, the very same Marc Elias who we now know laundered DNC and Hillary campaign cash through his law firm to pay for the Trump Dossier) apparently chose to hide their server issues, not only from the FBI, buy from DNC Officers as well. Per The Daily Caller:

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former head of the Democratic National Committee, did not tell the DNC’s own officers about a breach on its servers for more than a month after learning about it, according to then-DNC officer Donna Brazile.

Wasserman Schultz alerted the officers of the breach only when The Washington Post was about to make the revelations public, Brazile writes in an excerpt of the book Politico ran Thursday. The DNC instead enlisted the law firm of Perkins Coie to make major decisions, including how to handle the breach of its servers that led to an embarrassing email dump.

The timing suggests the DNC’s unusual and significant choice to have the private law firm CrowdStrike conduct the investigation into the breach, rather than turn the evidence over to law enforcement, was made without consulting DNC officers.

“She told [officers] about the hacking only minutes before the Washington Post broke the news,”
Brazile wrote.
