FBI Believes RUSSIA Hacked DNC, Leaked Emails To DAMAGE Hillary And Help Trump!!
Hillary camp made the shocking accusations over the weekend and now the FBI is confirming that they also suspect Russia hacked the DNC and leaked emails through Wikileaks in order to damage Hillary and help Trump in the election!!
From the Daily Beast:
Did the Russian government hack the DNC to bring down Hillary Clinton? That’s the view that’s quickly emerging inside American intelligence and law enforcement agencies.
The FBI suspects that Russian government hackers breached the networks of the Democratic National Committee and stole emails that were posted to the anti-secrecy site WikiLeaks on Friday. It’s an operation that several U.S. officials now suspect was a deliberate attempt to influence the presidential election in favor of Donald Trump, according to five individuals familiar with the investigation of the breach.
The theory that Moscow orchestrated the leaks to help Trump, who has repeatedly praised Russian President Vladimir Putin and practically called for the end of NATO, is fast gaining currency within the Obama administration because of the timing of the leaks and Trump’s own connections to the Russian government, the sources said on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing and developing quickly.
Current and former U.S. officials drew analogies to so-called “active measures campaigns,” or state-sponsored operations designed for political effects.
“The release of emails just as the Democratic National Convention is getting underway this week has the hallmarks of a Russian active measures campaign,” David Shedd, a former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told The Daily Beast. Shedd said that additional leaks were likely, echoing an opinion expressed by U.S. officials and experts who said that the release of emails on Friday may just be an opening salvo.
So, that’s kind of a big deal. And I’m betting we won’t do one damn thing about it because Obama is much too interesting in riding out his term without troubling himself with actually defending America.
Unfortunately, because of the recent decision by Director Comey to let Hillary off the hook, we must entertain the possibility that the FBI is merely saying this to give Hillary some cover in the election.
On the other hand, Donald Trump Jr. just went nuts when the accusation was made, calling it “the biggest lie” he’s ever heard:
Really? Methinks the Junior doth protest too much…
