It seems that CIA’s blatant lie has grown and grown as a media story and the CIA has made no attempt whatsoever to substantiate it. There is no Russian involvement in the leaks of emails showing Clinton’s corruption.
The CIA claim they “know the individuals” involved. Yet under Obama the USA has been absolutely ruthless in its persecution of whistleblowers, and its pursuit of foreign hackers through extradition. We are supposed to believe that in the most vital instance imaginable, an attempt by a foreign power to destabilize a US election, even though the CIA knows who the individuals are, nobody is going to be arrested or extradited, or (if in Russia) made subject to yet more banking and other restrictions against Russian individuals?
As Julian Assange has made crystal clear, the leaks did not come from the Russians, they are not hacks, they are insider leaks – there is a major difference between the two. 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 sources any serious journalist would view as “credible” give the opposite answer to the one Freedland wants.
- America has not been shy about arresting whistleblowers and it’s not been shy about extraditing hackers.
- The Saudi and US armed and trained ISIS forces counter by moving to retake Palmyra.
“It is terrible that the prime conduit for this paranoid nonsense is a once great newspaper, the Washington Post, which far from investigating executive power, now is a sounding board for totally evidence free anonymous source briefing of utter bullshit from the executive.”
