Rep. Trey Gowdy is looking at the possibility that the Democratic National Committee had something that they don’t want law enforcement to see after their systems they were hacked last year.
The South Carolina lawmaker wondered why the DNC insisted of not turning over its compromised computer server to authorities and even rejecting any assistance from federal agencies.
In an interview with Fox News host Martha MacCallum, Gowdy said the FBI or the Department of Homeland Security could have helped the DNC patch holes in their organization’s network to avoid future breaches.
Jeh Johnson, who served as Homeland Security Secretary during the second term of Barack Obama, testified before the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday, saying he was disappointed that the DNC did not turn over its hacked servers to DHS for examination.
Gowdy, who is a member of the panel, told MacCallum that in his experience as a prosecutor, when a victim does not turn over evidence, there is speculation that the victim is hiding something from authorities.
The DNC was hacked several months before the 2016 presidential election and thousands of emails were published online by WikiLeaks.
100% Fed Up reports:
Rep. Trey Gowdy was full of sarcasm (rightfully so) during comments about why the DNC didn’t turn over its hacked computer server to authorities. The puzzling thing that raised red flags is that the organization said it never received federal assistance causing people to question whether the DNC had something it “didn’t want law enforcement to see.”
