Все это отчетливо явствует из материалов Викиликс,так называемых емайлов Джона Подесты,где отчетливо видно,что еще 20 декабря 2015 года,Хиллари Клинтон знала,что почта  Kомитета Демократической партии была похищена людьми сенатора Берни Сандерса. Сперва ,сам Сандерс признал факт,что один из его младших сотрудников получил неавторизованный доступ к материалам соперника по президентской гонки,но затем стало ясно,что в этот процесс были  вовлечены разные сотрудники Сандерса. Тем не менее, Хиллари Клинтон уже зная об этом,обвинила российских хакеров и российские спецслужбы в этих преступлениях.
18 декабря,Сандерс даже был вынужден уволить директора своего АйТи департамента,Джоша Урецкого,под давлением улик против него самого.  https://www.linkedin.com/in/josh-uretsky-a165825/http://assets.nydailynews.com/polopoly_fs/1.2470127!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/article_635/sanders19n-2-web.jpg

Хиллари Клинтон во вторник заявила, что проиграла президентские выборы прошлого года из-за действий российских хакеров и главы ФБР Джеймса Коми. Она также назвала себя "частью сопротивления" президенту Дональду Трампу.
"Если бы выборы состоялись 27 октября, я была бы вашим президентом", - сказала он в интервью Си-эн-эн.
Хотя Клинтон и сказала, что берет на себя полную личность ответственность за свое поражение, она добавила, что она бы выиграла, если бы не произошли две вещи.
Во-первых, по словам Клинтон, хакеры, которых она считает российскими, обнародовали электронную почту главы ее избирательной кампании Джона Подесты, а во-вторых, 28 октября глава ФБР уведомил конгресс, что бюро снова расследует использование Клинтон частного сервера в бытность госсекретарем.

The Sanders campaign was able to access (and save) 24 different lists of
proprietary Clinton campaign information, as seen in their NGPVAN activity
logs. Here, for example, is a Sanders staffer searching for and saving

of voters that the Clinton campaign identified as persuadable in Iowa.

Let’s be clear about how the VAN system works: when you look at the log,
“saving” means an attempt to store the data to your own account–and there
are reports that there were preliminary attempts to export the data into
excel sheets. They knew what they were doing. Which brings me to my next
*2: Why'd your campaign claim it was an accident?*

In an interview with Bloomberg yesterday, Tad Devine claimed this was all a

NGPVAN’s audit found that Sanders staffers conducted 25 targeted searches
of Clinton campaign data, just like the example above. Let me reiterate
what this being a “mistake” would mean. Take a look at this pull out from
the audit activity logs.

For this to be a “mistake,” the Sanders campaign would have had to

- Searched for the voters we've identified as being unlikely to support
Hillary Clinton in the South Carolina primary
- Saved that list into their own account folder
- Searched for the voters we've identified as supporters who are very
likely to turn out to vote in the South Carolina primary
- Saved that list into their own account folder
- Searched for the voters we've identified as supporters who are
unlikely to turn out to vote in the South Carolina primary

This is just a sample. They pulled *21 more lists.* That seems hardly
accidental to me.
*3: Why did the Sanders campaign claim that only
staffer was involved
accessing Clinton campaign data?*

Contrary to their claims, there were four
involved. In fact, from the audit logs provided by NGPVAN, the staffer they
fired wasn’t even the person involved in accessing the most data.
*4. Why did your campaign claim that the "one staffer" was junior level?

In initial reports, the Sanders campaign claimed that the “single staffer”
involved in accessing Clinton campaign data was at the junior level. Tad
Devine even went so far as to say that he’d never met the guy.

Josh Uretsky, the staffer who was fired, was the campaign’s most senior
data strategist. <https://www.linkedin.com/in/josh-uretsky-a165825>

From his Linkedin page: [image: Capture (2)]
<https://m.hrc.onl/briefing/Capture-2.png>Our data director is involved in
our strategic, day-to-day decision making. That’s a pretty broad
interpretation of junior.
*In conclusion...*

To most voters, this will all seem pretty arcane. They care about raising
wages for their family. They care about security for their family. They
care about who’s going to keep them safe. They certainly don’t spend much
time thinking about campaign data theft.

With that said, if Senator Sanders intends to make his campaign’s theft of
our data a rallying point, he should have to answer these questions. His
campaign took advantage of a security flaw to access and retain proprietary
Clinton campaign information. We don’t know if they still have it. Those
are all facts. No amount of misdirection changes those facts.

We look forward to tonight’s debate.
*Here’s what happened with NGP VAN, the Sanders Campaign, and the Clinton

*And here are the steps we are taking to address the problem*

The Democratic National Committee, through its software partner NGP VAN,
provides tools for Democratic campaigns that are invaluable and second to
none. This week, there was error with that system, however, which led to an
incident involving the Sanders campaign.

We want to lay out exactly what happened so that people better understand
why the DNC needed to suspend the Sanders campaign’s access to our system
and how we’ve been working to fully resolve a serious problem — and get
everyone back to work electing a Democrat to the White House in 2016.

On Wednesday morning, NGP VAN applied a new software patch to the DNC’s
voter database system, and because of an error in the code, users were
capable of accessing some limited, yet extremely valuable information
belonging to other campaigns for a very brief window of time. Even though
the glitch opened access, users still needed to take deliberate steps to
seek out such information.

*It’s important to make a few things clear from the start. At no point were
donor records, financial information, or volunteer data exposed between
campaigns. At no point was any data exposed to the public. With the
correction of the glitch and further audits by NGP VAN, we are confident
now that the data within the system is secure.*

Once NGP VAN had taken steps to contain the glitch, the DNC directed NGP
VAN to conduct a thorough analysis to:

- Identify any users who may have accessed information from another
campaign inappropriately,
- Pinpoint exactly what actions any such users took in the system, and
- Report these findings to the DNC so we would know what, if any, data
was actually acquired.

As a result of this analysis, NGP VAN found that campaign staff on the
Sanders campaign, including the campaign’s national data director, had
accessed proprietary information about which voters were being targeted by
the Clinton campaign — and in doing so violated their agreements with the

These staffers then saved this information in their personal folders on the
system, and over the course of the next day, we learned that at least one
staffer appeared to have generated reports and exported them from the

None of this is in dispute. It’s fully documented in the system logs. And
these details reveal nothing less than a serious violation of the
agreements governing the use of this data. Underscoring that fact is the
point that the Sanders campaign has fired their national data director and
indicated further disciplinary actions may be taken pending the results of
their own investigation.

*When we understood what initially happened, we asked the Sanders campaign
to tell us who exactly accessed Hillary for America information, share
their understanding of what data was accessed, describe what was done with
that information, and detail how the campaign intended to discipline the
staffers involved.*

On Thursday, further NGP VAN analysis revealed that it was very likely that
a user had taken data out of the system during the breach. Upon learning
that, the DNC had to suspend the Sanders campaign’s access to the voter
file to ensure the integrity of the system. This action was not taken to
punish the Sanders campaign — it was necessary to ensure that the Sanders
campaign took appropriate steps to resolve the issue and wasn’t unfairly
using another campaign’s data. This temporary suspension was well within
the DNC’s authority. Moreover, the DNC was left with little choice in the
matter when the Sanders campaign declined to respond in a timely manner to
the requests for assistance with an investigation.

On Thursday, the Sanders campaign did move to fire its national data
director. But we still weren’t provided the information we needed from the
campaign until late in the evening on Friday. Once they complied with our
prior request and provided documentation that we were then able to review,
we immediately restored the Sanders campaign’s access to the voter file —
as was always our intention and as we had advised well before they sued the

And the information obtained so far shows that the DNC’s concern to have a
full, thorough inquiry was fully justified: As confirmed by the Sanders
campaign in the account given the DNC Friday evening, one of the employees
of the campaign involved in the misconduct tried to delete the notes they
made recording their accessing of Clinton campaign data to hide his

The next step is to continue to investigate the incident with the help of
an independent auditor. This is necessary to confirm, as the Sanders
campaign has assured us, that the data that was inappropriately accessed is
no longer in possession of the Sanders campaign. The Sanders campaign has
agreed to fully cooperate with the continuing DNC investigation of this

The DNC has also instructed NGP VAN to conduct a review process of their
internal procedures to identify how this mistake was allowed to happen and
prevent further such mistakes. The DNC is currently beginning the process
of securing an additional, independent audit by a data security firm of NGP
VAN’s procedures.

We are glad that all parties are moving forward and that the candidates and
Democrats can refocus on engaging voters to show how our party will
continue growing the economy and keep Americans safe.
