The media seems to have put the whole “hacking” issue behind us. But there are still many unanswered questions.
The hack into the Democrat National Committee was the beginning of the end for the Democrat establishment. It exposed the establishment as conspiring against Bernie Sanders, which led to the resignation of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz for ethics concerns (naturally, she was hired by the Clinton campaign the next day).
It also revealed that Donna Brazile had abused her position as a CNN contributor to leak debate questions to Hillary Clinton on numerous occasions ahead of her debates with Bernie Sanders. Brazile had to resign from CNN as a result….. for ethics concerns.
The left quickly played the blame game, placing the blame on “Russian hackers.” Now the liberal media is running a story wall-to-wall about an alleged “CIA assessment” that shows Russia tried to help Trump win.
Apparently we’re supposed to believe that the truth ceases to become truth if it’s of Russian origin. Bad news for the Democrats in that case: it wasn’t the Russians who are to blame, it’s a man within the fold who became disillusioned.
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. Assange went on to say he “felt sorry” for Hillary Clinton.
But now, a British insider is saying the same thing as Assange. Check this out:
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.
The Kremlin has rejected the hacking accusations. 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 “bulls**t”, 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.”

As has been pointed out by many, the media has given zero sources or evidence to connect Russia to anything. Ambassador Murray, on the other hand, put his name out there for the world to see.
