Re: “Herd shifts

But a former FBI official told The Hill it's not unusual for the bureau to bypass a direct examination of a hacked server.

"In nine out of 10 cases, we don't need access, we don't ask for access, we don't get access. That's the normal [procedure], Leo Taddeo, a former special agent in charge of the cyber division of the FBIs New York office, told The Hill.

It's extraordinarily rare for the FBI to get access to the victim's infrastructure because we could mess it up," he added. "We usually ask for the logs and images, and 99 out of a hundred times, that's sufficient.


Asking for direct access to a server wouldn't be necessary, Taddeo said, "unless there was a reason to think the victim was going to alter the evidence in some way."

Re: “Herd shifts

Total non-sequitur. It was the FBI that tipped off the DNC to the Russian "Cozy Bear" computer hack back in 2015 to begin with. Ergo, it appears CrowdStrike merely verified something investigators already knew.

But yes, I'd trust Mueller's highly-detailed indictment over the Russians.

Re: “Herd shifts

In sum, then, the DNC didn't refuse to turn over anything. If the FBI felt it needed physical access, it could have gotten a search warrant.

What's supposed to be the issue?

Meanwhile, the Investigator evades the real issue: Russian intelligence involvement.

Re: “Herd shifts

Evidently, the Investigator has failed to investigate Robert Mueller's indictment of Russian intelligence agents for the DNC hacks. Also, it's of course false that the DNC failed to cooperate with the FBI. How would that even be possible?

Re: “Neo-Nazis and local media coverage

Great work by Steve Barnes. I agree with KARK, however.

Re: “Another look at LR police (mis)conduct? Wait and see

As somebody who lived across the river from Conway for most of the last decade, I've never seen an LRPD patrol car there.

Re: “Character judgement

Ford has asked for a full FBI investigation all along. It's Kavanaugh and his supporters who find the idea outrageous.
