Jeh Johnson testifies DNC rejected DHS help on hack
Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson testified Wednesday that the Democratic National Committee last year turned down his agency's offer to help protect its network despite being warned about a hack.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz: FBI, DHS never contacted me about DNC hack
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., said Wednesday that neither the FBI nor any other government agency contacted her about the hacking of the Democratic National Committee's computer networks.
"At no point during my tenure at the DNC did anyone from the FBI or any other government agency contact or communicate with me about Russian intrusion on the DNC network.

This is pretty obvious. DWS said nobody contacted her. Johnson didn't claim that he reached out to her personally.
What we have here is DWS trying to employ plausible deniability. I wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her on this. She was clearly asleep at the wheel. She was the leading the organization, the buck stopped with her.
A court document filed this week with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida by their attorneys said that they received a call for information about the case from the office of Wasserman Schultz, a Democratic congresswoman from Florida, and claimed that it sounded like the caller used a voice changer.
According to attorney Elizabeth Lee Beck: "At 4:54 p.m. today [June 1], an individual called our law office from '305-936-5724.'" That number is the contact phone number for Wasserman Schultz's Aventura office in Florida.

So this week Under Oath means likely telling the truth but two weeks ago when it was James Comey that same Under Oath didn't mean anything.
