“The Russians did it!” pile-on continued over the weekend as both the Mainstream Media and #neverTrump Republican neocons, Lindsey Graham and John McCain, gave further fuel to the conspiracy fires behind the DNC and John Podesta/Clinton campaign emails that were made public over the past several months.
According to a former British diplomat, those emails weren’t hacked, but were in fact leaked by inside sources, thus exposing the fake news conspiracybeing perpetrated by the New York Times, Washington Post, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, etc.
Furthermore, this same diplomat, a man by the name of Craig Murray, has indicated top U.S. officials know the emails were the result of leaks and not hacks, but are now pretending to think otherwise in the hopes of manufacturing some political gain following widespread Democrat losses during the 2016 Election.
Via GATEWAY PUNDIT :
“The Kremlin has rejected the hacking accusations, while the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has previously said the DNC leaks were not linked to Russia. A second senior official cited by the Washington Post conceded that intelligence agencies did not have specific proof that the Kremlin was “directing” the hackers, who were said to be one step removed from the Russian government.
Craig Murray, the former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, who is a close associate of Assange, called the CIA claims “bullshit”, adding: “They are absolutely making it up.”
“I know who leaked them,” Murray said. “I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.
“If what the CIA are saying is true, and the CIA’s statement refers to people who are known to be linked to the Russian state, they would have arrested someone if it was someone inside the United States.
“America has not been shy about arresting whistleblowers and it’s not been shy about extraditing hackers. They plainly have no knowledge whatsoever.”
The primary motivation of the false, ‘the Russians did it!’ narrative is to try and delegitimize Donald Trump’s stunning presidential victory. To date, there has been no verifiable proof of Russian-government directed hacking, and now a former British diplomat with ties to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has gone on record stating the Russians were NOT responsible, and that the emails were not obtained via hacking, but rather via leaks by one or more insiders from within the U.S. government.
And once again it must be noted how no-one from the Obama administration, the Clinton campaign, the DNC, or John McCain or Lindsey Graham, are disputing the facts outlined by those leaked emails – facts pertaining to DNC collusion with the Clinton campaign that included outright CHEATING by Hillary Clinton during the Clinton-Sanders debates, collusion between top media figures and Team Clinton, and blatant, multi-million-dollar pay-to-play machinations between then-Secretary of State Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, none of those leaks would have mattered.
Those leaks pointed directly to the widespread corruption within the political-media machine of America. It is a machine rocked by the Donald Trump campaign, and the Donald Trump victory, so now that same machine moves to cripple the soon-to-be Donald Trump presidency.
