Vladimir Putin behind Democratic party email leak
or was he?
At least that is what they are theorizing today. The leak was known about at least a month ago but no one seemed too worried about it.
The hack and subsequent release of emails is being investigated by the FBI and I am sure other agencies, were released by activist group WikiLeaks over the weekend. They appeared to show favoritism within the DNC for none other than Hillary Clinton over U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, who ran a neck and neck race for the nomination for the Nov. 8 election.
The committee by the way is supposed to be neutral so the release of the emails forced chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a congresswoman from Florida, to resign.
If you find that upsetting take this into account: it is widely believed that Russia hacked emails from both the Democratic and Republican campaigns back in 2008 and didn’t do anything with the intel they obtained then.
According to an official who is involved with the investigation: “the classified information collected on the hack so far indicated beyond a reasonable doubt that it originated in Russia.”
So going back to the hacks in 08, I am fairly certain that our US officials figured Russia wouldn’t do anything with the intel they had hacked this time. Besides, did anyone see the documentary Stuxnet?
If you did, remember that so called woman in the documentary who claimed to have worked for US intelligence and how she described what folks at the NSA dressed like? Wearing a cape to work, building with Lego’s, playing with toys etc? I mean was this at a daycare or the actual NSA? Were these 5 year old kids or adults entrusted with our nations cyber security efforts?
The reason I bring it up is because does anyone think any nation who outpaces us in the cyber world employs, had or has individuals who show up to work dressed like a fucking 5 year old in cape heading to daycare?
Officials now believe that the information obtained was released so as to influence this year’s election. It is unclear if Vladimir Putin directed the attack, regardless it is a very progressive move and serves as a valuable lesson here.
That lesson being, Russia is yet another country who outpaces the US in cyberspace. Second, ever hear that saying “Fool me once, shame on you, Fool me twice shame on me?”
How could Russia have hacked us twice during two different election years?
Representative Adam Schiff, the senior Democrat on the U.S. House of Representatives intelligence committee was quoted as saying “That foreign actors may be trying to influence our election let alone a powerful adversary like Russia, should concern all Americans of any party.”
My question to Adam would be, why?
The hackers gave the American public what it has been asking our elected leaders for so that we can actually make an educated decision about who we elect to lead our nation, serve in congress etc.
The committee as it turns out is not so neutral so, not so honest so that begs the question, can they be trusted to lead our nation? It’s a matter of the truth being known, I tend to feel that the hackers did the right thing by the American public, the American voter by giving us what we asked our own leaders to give us. Honesty.
The hackers, whoever they are basically did the same thing the Democrats did, they tried to influence the outcome of the election.
Hence it is my belief the hackers have a much better understanding of the American public than our own leaders do. Honesty goes a long way even if someone was caught doing the wrong thing. Why continue to lie or hide it from the nation?
