John Podesta has a resumé that is longer than the arm of basketball player. Until recently, he was a very powerful man in Washington, DC. Last week, he was given a humble job as a columnist at the Jeff Bezos/CIA-owned Washington Post.
John Podesta was the Chair of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the former Chief of Staff in the Bill Clinton White House. Prior to joining Hillary Clinton’s campaign, he was Counselor to President Barack Obama, where he oversaw *climate change and energy policy*. He also served as co-chair of President Obama’s transition team.
John Podesta’s words here will be perceived very differently by the individuals watching, depending on their knowledge base and by the bias through which they’re viewed but his choice of the word “hacked”, to describe what happened to both his email account and to the US Presidential election is a misnomer.
Podesta’s insistence that his email account and the Elections were hacked by the “Russians” is not just delusional but a total diversion from the truth, as well as being instructive of the bogus playbook of that faction of the US Deep State that Podesta represents, which has been repeatedly been proven by WikiLeaks and others to be deeply corrupt.
Podesta’s statements here are completely contradicted by those of Human Rights activist and former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig Murray, who came forward as being the source of the DNC email leaks that were published by WikiLeaks. Murray says that he flew to Washington last September and proceeded to a wooded area near American University in Northwest Washington, DC where he was given a thumb drive containing thousands of emails that came from disgusted Bernie Sanders supporters working at the DNC, who had legal access to the data.
Murray went on the record to say that the CIA’s December 2016 allegations that Russia was behind all of this were totally false, “They are absolutely making it up. I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them and they are certainly not Russian. It’s a leak not a hack. The two are different things.”
The Congressional Intelligence Committee demanded that CIA officials testify before them and explain what evidence they had. All of those called to appear refused because their story is fake news and they would open themselves up to charges of perjury, for lying to Congress.
Bill Binney, NSA’s former Technical Director for Geopolitical and Military Analysis and Reporting Group and current member of Veteran Intelligence Officials for Sanity has publicly stated, “CIA is almost totally dependent on NSA for ground truth in the communications arena, thus it remains something of a mystery why the media is being fed strange stories about hacking that have no basis in fact. The evidence that should be there is absent, otherwise it would surely be brought forward, since this could be done without any danger to sources and methods. Thus, we conclude that the emails were leaked by an insider. Such an insider could be anyone in a government department or agency with access to NSA databases or perhaps someone within the DNC.”
