Investigation 1 of 22 at DOJ Re: FISA
Investigation 001: Breach of the Democratic National Committee/Breach Dossier
During the course of the investigation, we have determined that the Democratic National Committee was breached by an individual named Seth Rich. At the time of the breach, Mr. Rich was employed by the Democratic National Committee…During said period of employment, Mr. Rich broke into the IT server room and transferred the files from the server to an external hard drive. This investigation concludes that the rate of transfer of files was consistent with a local breach, and does not ally with assertions that the breach occurred through a transfer over the internet.
Once the information was downloaded off the server, it was emailed to the Wikileaks secure file drop site. As noted on previous President Daily Briefings, President Obama was aware of ongoing operations that had continuous monitoring of the Wikileaks secure drop site. Individuals of aware of this file transfer of Mr. Rich to Wikileaks included Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper and Central Intelligence Agency Director John O. Brennan. (Mssrs.) Clapper and Brennan met with [REDACTED]. These twelve individuals continue to be monitored, and are the subjects of latter investigations.
Using the information provided, Mr. Brennan reached out to his department at Google, requesting that they fund an organization called CROWDSTRIKE. Funding for the organization was to be used to produce documentation indicating that the files seized from the DNC were a hack perpetrated by agents linked to the Kremlin. Any documentation indicating that the hack occurred locally was to be destroyed. The narrative was to be pushed that the emails from John Podesta’s account were the result of an elaborate internet phishing scheme.
Concurrent with the production of the documentation to be used to allege Russian hackers were the source of the leaks provided to Wikileaks, Mr. Brennan notified both the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton that Seth Rich was the source of their leaks. The investigation has uncovered documentation indicating that Mr. Rich was to be make an example out of. Internal sources in the gang MS-13 indicate that they were used to perform the hit (on Seth Rich) that occurred in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington DC (on July 10, 2016).
