A group of intelligence pros and forensic investigators tell The Nation there was no hack— the media ignores it.
Last week the respected left-liberal magazine The Nation published an explosive article that details in great depth the findings of a new report — authored in large part by former U.S. intelligence officers — which claims to present forensic evidence that the Democratic National Committee was not hacked by the Russians in July 2016.
Instead the report alleges the DNC suffered an insider leak – conducted in the Eastern time zone of the United States by someone with physical access to a DNC computer.
This report also claims there is no apparent evidence that the hacker known as Guccifer 2.0 — supposedly based in Romania — hacked the DNC on behalf of the Russian government.
There is also no evidence the report’s authors say that Guccifer handed documents over to WikiLeaks.
Instead the report says that the evidence and timeline of events suggests that Guccifer may have been conjured up in an attempt to deflect from the embarrassing information about Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign that was released just before the Democratic National Convention.
The investigators found that some of the ‘Guccifer’ files had been deliberately altered by copying and pasting the text into a ‘Russianified’ word-processing document with Russian-language settings.
