UK Diplomat: I’ve met the DNC WikiLeaks leaker and the person is an insider – not Russian | 11 Dec 2016 | In early November, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told reporter John Pilger in an exclusive interview that it wasn’t Russia who hacked into the DNC and Clinton staff emails. Today former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig Murray, who is a close associate of Julian Assange, said he has met the DNC leaker and he’s not Russian. Via Craig Murray.org: “As Julian Assange has made crystal clear, the leaks did not come from the Russians. As I have explained countless times, they are not hacks, they are insider leaks – there is a major difference between the two. And it should be said again and again, that if Hillary Clinton had not connived with the DNC to fix the primary schedule to disadvantage Bernie, if she had not received advance notice of live debate questions to use against Bernie, if she had not accepted massive donations to the Clinton foundation and family members in return for foreign policy influence, if she had not failed to distance herself from some very weird and troubling people, then none of this would have happened. The continued ability of the mainstream media to claim the leaks lost Clinton the election because of ‘Russia’, while still never acknowledging the truths the leaks reveal, is Kafkaesque.”
CIA concludes ‘Russia DID intervene in the elections with the goal of helping Trump win’ but transition team dismisses claims saying they come from the ‘same people that said Saddam had WMDs’ | 09 Dec 2016 | The CIA found that Russia’s interference with the presidential elections went beyond an attempt to undermine American democracy as a whole – and actively favored Donald Trump’s chances, according to the [globalist dirt-bags at the] Washington Post. Those who provided WikiLeaks with emails from hacked Democratic accounts have been identified by intelligence authorities as members of a Russian campaign who worked towards the goal of seeing Trump elected, officials told the Post. The shocking conclusion, made by a ‘consensus’ of intelligence agencies, was reported the same day President Barack Obama ordered a review of cyber attacks that targeted Democratic organizations and operatives during the 2016 elections. But Trump’s transition team shot down the findings, issuing a statement that read: ‘These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.’
