Bombshell revelations about Crowdstrike, Perkins Coie (the DNC/DCCC law firm), and the DNC in a court filing made on September 29. Although most of it is redacted, the filing shows that:
1) Crowdstrike was hired by Perkins Coie, the law firm for the DNC, rather than by the DNC itself. Fusion GPS was hired in the same way and around the same time.
2) Perkins Coie hired Crowdstrike for the following:
CrowdStrike will work at Firm’s direction and will assist Firm [Perkins Coie] with providing legal advice to Firm Client [the DNC] by performing professional services related to cybersecurity (the “Services”).
That explains why Crowdstrike didn’t attempt to remediate the security breach. It was not hired to remediate anything. Crowdstrike was hired as an expert witness (or a false witness, or an expert forgery maker) for the DNC and the Hillary campaign against GOP and the Trump campaign.
3) DNC and Perkins Coie retained Crowdstrike on May 2-3 of 2016 — not on May 6, as it has been claimed by almost everybody over the last three years.
Now they claim attorney – client and/or attorney work product privileges. H/t @Techno_Fog
