Skip to comments.Democrats' opposition research got exposed — this time, not by the Russians

When the Russians hacked the Democratic National Committee in summer 2016, one of the crown jewels obtained by Vladimir Putins team was the partys opposition research files on then-GOP candidate Donald Trump.
It was quite a blow to the DNC, because political parties usually guard their research zealously, hoping to use it with the news media and political commercials to help ding their political rivals without leaving fingerprints.
But the Democratic Party committee that helps elects candidates to U.S. House seats has exposed scores of its own opposition research files on GOP candidates, past and present, on the internet. They just arent easy to find.
Those Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) files arent on web addresses tied to its official domain, https://dccc.org/. Instead, the research files appear under such arcane URLs as http://2vmhfw1isbe32j3tgn3epw3x-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/. To find these jewels, someone would have to know that cryptic address, or be willing to scroll through multiple screens of a Google search before it showed up.
Why is this the case?
The DCCC insists it isnt another hack, nor was it an accidental publishing of secret files that it didnt make a security mistake. Instead, a senior DCCC official told me it was an intentional publishing of materials that arent being publicized right now.
In other words, the DCCC posted some of its most valuable opposition research in a way that isnt exactly accessible unless you know where to look.
Sometimes we publish research and polling so it can be helpful, the official explained.

There has never been any evidence ( except the "evidence" by Crowdstrike which can be taken with a grain of salt ) that the DNC was hacked by the Russians. In fact, what evidence that exists shows that it was copied from the server via a usb drive from someone inside.
Any progress on the Seth Rich “botched robbery” murder?
I thought not.
The Russians didn’t hack the DNC.
Wasn’t the password for Podesta’s email “password”? Is that the site that they claim the Ruskies hacked. If so anybody could have done it.
No evidence of the Russians hacking the DNC has been put forward, only the suggestion.
Two different leaks.
The Podesta e-mails could have been hacked by anyone as you point out.
The DNC data was downloaded at a speed that suggests an inside job.
Thanks. I thought Pudesta was high up at the DNC or maybe he was Hagerlys campaign manager? There’s so much crap that’s happened it’s hard to keep track.
He was Hillary’s campaign manager
