Wikileaks operative claims the leaks came from Democratic insiders
At the risk of Facebook’s new policy marking this post as “fake news” we have new information passed on by Wikileaks which throws cold water on the whole Russia did it narrative being promoted by the Democratic Party and the mainstream media.
Before I get to that we must remember that this whole narrative came from the Washington Post, which without proof made the accusation that the CIA believed Russia was responsible for the hacks. This unconfirmed report has morphed into the CIA is reporting that Russia was responsible for the hacks although nobody in the agency has confirmed it and the FBI strongly disagrees with it.
Earlier today, without disclosing where the information came from, Julian Assange denied the Russians were involved. Here is more:
Thursday on the Sean Hannity’s radio show, editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks Julian Assange said the Russian government was not his source for the hacked emails they released from both the Democratic National Committee and the chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign John Podesta.
Assange said, “Our source is not the Russian government.”
Hannity asked, “In other words, let me be clear, Russia did not give you the Podesta documents or anything from the DNC?
Assange replied, “That’s correct.”
This is not news in and of itself because Julian Assange has made this claim before, it has just gone unnoticed by those who are pushing the narrative but there is bigger news on this front because earlier today an insider at Wikileaks stated it was actually a Democratic insider who was the source of the information.
Here is more:
A Wikileaks envoy today claims he personally received Clinton campaign emails in Washington D.C. after they were leaked by ‘disgusted’ whisteblowers – and not hacked by Russia.
Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and a close associate of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, told Dailymail.com that he flew to Washington, D.C. for a clandestine hand-off with one of the email sources in September.
‘Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians,’ said Murray in an interview with Dailymail.com on Tuesday. ‘The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks.’
So why would Americans (who had legal access to this information which means they had to have been Democrats) want to leak this information? I am glad you asked:
He said the leakers were motivated by ‘disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders.’
Because of the corruption in the Clinton Foundation and because the Democrats rigged the primary to screw over Bernie Sanders. Of course this will sound unbelievable to those who want to believe the Russian angle for political reasons but when you think about it it is more believable than the notion the Russian would rather see Donald Trump in the White House after Hillary Clinton’s State Department gave away 20% of America’s uranium capacity to the Russians. Just saying…
