The DNC "rebuffed" requests from FBI to examine its computers after hacking.

I seldom post articles from CNN, because they usually have such a liberal bias it hard to separate truth from fiction.   That’s why I was quite surprised to read this article.  
It seems that the FBI tried to help defend the DNC against hacking, but the DNC just blew them off. 
From CNN.
The Democratic National Committee "rebuffed" a request from the FBI to examine its computer services after it was allegedly hacked by Russia during the 2016 election, a senior law enforcement official told CNN Thursday.
"The FBI repeatedly stressed to DNC officials the necessity of obtaining direct access to servers and data, only to be rebuffed until well after the initial compromise had been mitigated," a senior law enforcement official told CNN. "This left the FBI no choice but to rely upon a third party for information. These actions caused significant delays and inhibited the FBI from addressing the intrusion earlier."

So the DNC have no one to blame but them selves.
