Sometime in May 2016, the DNC and the DCCC became aware that their computer systems had been compromised by unauthorized intrusions and hired a security company to identify the extent of the intrusions.
A few weeks later, on June 14, 2016, the DNC publicly announced that it had been hacked by Russian intelligence (GRU/KGB).
From Jul thru Nov 2016, Russia, through WikiLeaks, released tens of thousands of stolen documents stolen from the DNC and the personal email account of the chairman of the U.S. presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.
During the summer of 2016, STONE spoke to senior Trump Campaign officials about Russian Intelligence and information it had that would be damaging to the Clinton Campaign. STONE was contacted by senior Trump Campaign officials to inquire about future releases by WikiLeaks.
