On December 18, 2015, the Democratic National Committee and Bernie 2016 appeared in United States District Court on Bernie 2016’s indication that it would be seeking an injunction in the breach of contract action it filed against the DNC earlier that day. The Sanders campaign alleged that the DNC wrongfully terminated its access to the party-administered voter file system, VoteBuilder, following DNC’s discovery that Sanders campaign personnel had discovered a flaw in system security and had accessed Clinton campaign proprietary score data.The parties proceeded in the course of the hearing to settle the immediate issue before the Court. The DNC agreed to restore access to VoteBuilder by the next day, and the campaign agreed to cooperate in an independent investigation of the data breach. The Sanders campaign also agreed as part of this investigation to assume a share of the costs of the investigation.The DNC and the Sanders campaign agreed on the retention of CrowdStrike to conduct the investigation. Over a five-week period and the commitment to the work of 128 hours, CrowdStrike examined user activity within VoteBuilder by three Democratic Presidential campaigns: Hillary for America, Bernie 2016, and O’Malley for President. Additionally, CrowdStrike conducted a forensic examination of two systems belonging to the Bernie 2016 campaign. The investigation sought to first identify whether any campaigns’ users accessed data via the VoteBuilder system in an unauthorized fashion and then determine the nature of any unauthorized access that did occur.The cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike has concluded the independent investigation agreed to by the DNC and Bernie 2016. It identified evidence of unauthorized access via four user accounts from the Bernie 2016 campaign. All unauthorized access occurred during a one-hour period fromon December 16, 2015.During that time, the four users conducted 25 searches using proprietary Hillary for America score data across 11 states. All of the results of these searches were saved within the VoteBuilder system, with the exception of one instance where a user exported a statistical summary of a search using HFA scoring in New Hampshire.CrowdStrike found no evidence of unauthorized access by the Hillary for America or O’Malley for President campaigns.Today, the Sanders campaign also voluntarily dismissed the breach of contract action pending against the DNC.
|Bob Graham speaks in Gainesville, Fla., Oct. 12, 2012. The Obama administration will likely soon release at least part of a 28-page secret chapter from a congressional inquiry into 9/11 that may shed light on possible Saudi connections to the attack|
Nearly 15 years after terrorists hijacked four passenger jets and crashed them into the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon outside Washington, D.C., and a farm field in Pennsylvania, 28 pages detailing foreign support for the attackers could soon be made public. Only a select group of U.S. officials have read the highly classified document, which has been
"Don’t be assholes,” Maher said during his HBO show Real Time last night to those Sanders fans out there who are threatening to stay home on Election Day in November and pout. Doing so could hand the country to a president such as Donald Trump or Ted Cruz, who are each fully antithetical to the liberal leaning values that Sanders has been promoting. Instead he wants them to pivot to Hillary.
Bill Maher said that Sanders “might be toast.” He made clear that he intends to support Hillary Clinton once she’s the nominee.

On , the White House will recognize ten individuals from across the country as “White House Champions of Change for Advancing Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery.”
These individuals were selected by the White House for their leadership and tireless work to prevent prescription drug abuse and heroin use, improve access to treatment and support recovery.
Prescription drug abuse and heroin use have taken a heartbreaking toll on too many Americans and their families, while straining resources of law enforcement and treatment programs. More Americans now die every year from drug overdoses than they do in motor vehicle crashes. The President has made clear that addressing the opioid overdose epidemic is a priority for his Administration and has highlighted tools that are effective in reducing drug use and overdose, like evidence-based prevention programs, prescription drug monitoring, prescription drug take-back events, medication-assisted treatment and the overdose reversal drug naloxone.
The event will feature remarks by White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, and Director of National Drug Control Policy Michael Botticelli. The event will also feature members of the cast and production team of the Warner Bros. Television-produced CBS comedy series Mom.
The Champions of Change program was created as an opportunity for the White House to feature individuals doing extraordinary things to empower and inspire members of their communities. The event will be open press and streamed live on www.whitehouse.gov/live. Tolearn more about the White House Champions of Change program, visitwww.whitehouse.gov/champions.

Media Fall For Trump's BSAs Donald Trump won the New York primary, the political press tripped over themselves to laud his "presidential" tone and downplay his bigotry and sexism. One nightly newscast even called Trump "the consummate deal-maker changing his sales pitch to close the deal." Charles Pierce explained to Chris Hayes that Trump's supposed changing tone is part of a "great scam" that he's using "all the way to the convention."
Tubman honored, conservatives aghastAfter Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced that Harriet Tubman would replace Andrew Jackson on the face of the $20 bill, many conservative media figures were aghast, evensuggesting before the decision was finalized that it would be better to just "leave men alone." Fox & Friends even sent Steve Doocy out onto the streets to search for someone who blames "PC Police" for the change -- but that's not what he found.
Koch front group and the SCOTUS nomineePressure is growing on Senate Republicans to act on President Obama's Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, and conservatives are throwing everything but the kitchen sink in a desperate attempt to blunt the momentum. A Koch-backed front group is pushing lies to try to smear Garland. Media Matters' Joe Strupp talked to law professors across the country, whocalled the group's attacks "silly" and "nonsense."
Obamacare a runaway successConservatives have lied about Obamacare for years, making increasingly dire predictions. Well, now that the Affordable Care Act is actually in place for over a year, the data is in: Minorities, part-time workers, and low-wage workers all had substantial gains in coverage. In fact, there is now a historic low in the amount of uninsured Americans. If the past is prologue, expect serial misinformers to run and hide when confronted with the facts.
