Debbie Wasserman Schultz Accuses Jeh Johnson of Lying Under Oath (VIDEO)
Former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz accused former DHS chief Jeh Johnson of lying under oath when he claimed the DNC refused the help of the FBI and DHS after their computer systems were invaded.
As TGP previously reported, former DNC Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, said Wednesday that neither the FBI nor any other government agency contacted her about the hacking of the DNC’s computer networks, The Washington Examiner reports.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s claims that she was never contacted by any government agency about supposed hacking of the DNC’s computer systems directly contradicts former DHS chief, Jeh Johnson’s
testimony before the House Intelligence Committee earlier Wednesday.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz rolled her eyes as CNN’s Kate Bolduan brought up Jeh Johnson’s testimony where he claimed that the DNC was contacted by the FBI and offered to help them with cybersecurity.
Wasserman Schultz: “He’s wrong in every respect. Let me be very clear. At no point during my tenure at the DNC was I contacted by the FBI, DHS, or any government agency or alerted or made aware that they believed that the Russians, an enemy state was intruding on our network.”
Wasserman Schultz reiterated, “Respectfully, Secretary Johnson is utterly misinformed. The FBI and other federal agencies did virtually nothing to make sure that when…there was concern that there was an intrusion on our network by the Russians, that they did virtually nothing to sound the alarm bells.”
The Daily Caller
points out that Wasserman Schultz’s statements conflict with those of former DNC vice chairwoman Donna Brazile, who admitted that federal officials had been in contact with them regarding hacking.
“I talked to the general counsel of the DNC today and he assures me that every step along the way when we were notified of these issues that we changed systems, changed procedures,” Brazile told CNN
last summer. “…at no time did we ignore the warning from the FBI or any other federal officials.”
Something isn’t adding up. Either someone is lying, or the Democrats are just too inept to run anything. Either way, they are not fit to run a country.
