When the DNCLeaks “hack” happened in July of 2016, I took one look at the story and then my I/T gears started working internally. I immediately saw it for what I still believe it is today: An angry Bernie fan working for the DNC who saw what was happening and downloaded every PST (email collection) file on the servers to a USB drive and handed it over to WikiLeaks.
When you are talking about tens of thousands of emails, that is a massive quantity that takes a long time to stream across a network, and the DNC would have had to have some pretty stupid I/T folks not to notice it. Simply copying the files to a USB Drive would be simpler and much quicker, and almost impossible to catch in the act.
I have even posited on Ricochet that the DNC knows precisely who did it, but keep it a secret in order to continue to dupe the gullible (and overwhelmed by HateTrump) people with the Russian Interference Hoax.
Enter the far-left magazine “The Nation”. Known for their love of all things Leftist, you can find wonderful stories on their site such as “Andres Magana Ortiz’s Deportation Is Indefensible. Help Reverse It.” and “Why Donald Trump Needs Muslim Women” and my favorite, “How Do I Contain My Rage at the Patriarchy?”
The Nation has just posted a story titled, “A New Report Raises Big Questions About Last Year’s DNC Hack“
They have done an intense study of the DNCLeaks story and have found zero evidence of any hack, Russian or otherwise. The Guccifer claim is a Hoax, as I suspected, and they conclude that the theft of the DNC Emails files was an inside job.
Here is the main point of the story, sorry for the Spoiler:
There was no hack of the Democratic National Committee’s system on July 5 last year—not by the Russians, not by anyone else. Hard science now demonstrates it was a leak—a download executed locally with a memory key or a similarly portable data-storage device. In short, it was an inside job by someone with access to the DNC’s system. This casts serious doubt on the initial “hack,” as alleged, that led to the very consequential publication of a large store of documents on WikiLeaks last summer.
Please click the link above and read the story. I applaud their bravery, because they will be savaged by the Left for telling the truth. In fact, the DNC Goon Squad has already replied to the Editors:
Editor’s note: After publication, the Democratic National Committee contacted The Nation with a response, writing, “U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded the Russian government hacked the DNC in an attempt to interfere in the election. Any suggestion otherwise is false and is just another conspiracy theory like those pushed by Trump and his administration. It’s unfortunate that The Nation has decided to join the conspiracy theorists to push this narrative.”
I think it would be wonderful if Ricochet would finally put to bed the arguments about the Russian Interference Hoax. Thirteen months and still no proof, no evidence, that the Russians did anything, anywhere, to anyone, to interfere with the 2016 Presidential election. It was a total fabrication by Clinton Campaign Manager Robby Mook, and kept alive by the DNC, the MSM, and the HateTrumpers.
Let’s Ban The Hoax!
