When hackers threw up a dossier of emails from Trump Elliott Broidy’s biggest fundraiser in 2018, he accused Qatar of sending cybercriminals. But the perpetrators were never officially identified and according to court documents obtained by The Daily Beast, prosecutors dropped a criminal investigation into the break-in in 2018 after a two-month investigation.
In a statement filed in December 2018 and obtained by The Daily Beast, Broidy’s attorney wrote that they first reported the break-in to federal investigators at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles on March 22, 2018, two weeks later the New York Times reported that copies of purported emails from their inbox were Times and other points of sale.
But after a series of meetings with Broidy and his attorneys, the FBI announced it was suspending the investigation and later told Broidy’s legal team that the investigation was dropped.
