New info: DNC emails were not stolen by the Russians?

But instead, by insiders at the DNC.

Including, possibly, Seth Rich.

And apparently the DNC is beside itself today.

From GatewayPundit.com:

Breaking: ‘Complete Panic’ at Highest Levels of DNC Over Kim DotCom’s Seth Rich Announcement

Saturday, an anonymous person who works in Washington DC, alleged on 4Chan’s /pol/ subgroup that high-ranking current and former Democratic Party officials are terrified of the Seth Rich murder investigation.

Is it because Seth Rich, murdered in DC on July 11th of 2016, was possibly involved? DC police concluded the killing was due to a failed robbery though apparently no property was taken from the completely unarmed Rich, who was shot in the back twice.

This comes after internet entrepreneur and hacker, Kim DotCom, admitted on Saturday that he was part of an operation along with Seth Rich to get stolen DNC emails to Wikileaks.

Wait. Didn’t Julian Assange tell us, last year, that the Russians were not involved in bringing the hacked emails to Wikileaks? From the January 3rd, 2017 DailyUKMail.com:

Assange says he is ‘1,000% confident’ that Russia was NOT the source for hacked Democratic emails which were published by WikiLeaks

by Thomas Burrows

  • Julian Assange claimed Barack Obama is ‘trying to delegitimize Donald Trump’
  • Reiterated his claims Russia was not behind hacks during presidential election
  • Emails stolen from DNC and Clinton’s campaign chairman were published online
  • But Assange said ‘source is not Russian government and it is not a state party’ 

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has said Barack Obama is ‘trying to delegitimize the Trump administration’ by claiming the Russian government hacked Democrats’ emails during the bitter presidential election.

Assange, whose interview with Sean Hannity will air on Fox News tonight, also reiterated his claims that Russia was not the source of the hacks.

He told Hannity ‘with a thousand per cent’ confidence that the Russian government was not responsible for emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman.

Private investigator Rod Wheeler, a former DC Homicide detective himself, revealed last week that evidence suggests Seth Rich had contact with Wikileaks prior to his murder, to the tune of 44,000 emails.

With that in mind, these two points.

The anonymous post released Saturday reads:

“Anons, I work in D.C.

I know for certain that the Seth Rich case has scared the shit out of certain high ranking current and former Democratic Party officials.

This is the reason why they have backed away from impeachment talk. They know the smoking gun is out there, and they’re terrified you will find it, because when you do it will bring the entire DNC, along with a couple of very big name politicians.

It appears that certain DNC thugs were not thorough enough when it came time to cover their tracks. Podesta saying he wanted to “make an example of the leaker” is a huge smoking gun.”

Backed away from impeachment talk? Yes, there is some evidence of that. Then this post as well.

“The behavior is near open panic. To even mention this name in D.C. Circles [sic] will bring you under automatic scrutiny. To even admit that you have knowledge of this story puts you in immediate danger.

If there was no smoke there would be no fire. I have never, in my 20 years of working in D.C. Seen [sic] such a panicked reaction from anyone.

I have strong reason to believe that the smoking gun in this case is out o [sic] the hands of the conspirators, and will be discovered by anon. I know for certain that Podesta is deeply concerned. He’s been receiving anonymous calls and emails from people saying they know the truth. Same with Hillary.”

You decide for yourself. But I’m not ignoring the story.

Is there a “there” there?

Kim Dotcom Offers Congress Evidence to Prove Seth Rich Was WikiLeaks Source

by Cassandra Fairbanks

Megaupload founder and friend of Julian Assange has offered to provide Congress with written testimony and proof that murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was WikiLeaks’ source — if they will include his murder in their Russia investigation.

Kim Dotcom has also now claimed that he was involved in the leak — and that he personally knew Rich.

“Curiouser and curiouser,” it is.

“If Congress includes #SethRich case into their Russia probe I’ll give written testimony with evidence that Seth Rich was @Wikileaks source,” Dotcom tweeted on Friday.

Dotcom also accused the DNC of withholding their servers from the FBI because “Seth Rich ain’t Russia!”

Even more curious is this.

In a bizarre and aggressive statement following Wheeler’s report, Brad Bauman, the spokesman for the Rich family, who just so happens to be a Democratic Party crisis PR consultant, claims that even if an email [to WikiLeaks] was found, it would not be evidence of foul play.

Right. Because Rich sending DNC emails to Wikileaks would, overall, tend to greatly please the DNC and Demorats of all stripes. What. The. Hell.

“Even if tomorrow, an email was found, it is not a high enough bar of evidence to prove any interactions as emails can be altered and we’ve seen that those interested in pushing conspiracies will stop at nothing to do so,” Bauman said in a statement.

Seven words for the Rich family: let’s just see how this plays out. My guess is that you are Demorats and you don’t wish this to be true in any fashion whatsoever. Understandable. I Grok your wishes. But they may be wrong.

This article from the GatewayPundit.com:

Police Never Asked For Surveillance Video From Bar Seth Rich Was Last Spotted Hours Before His Murder

by Cristina Laila

On July 8, 2016, 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich was murdered in Washington DC. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.

TGP recently reported that according to Public Incident Report CCN #16113797 dated July 10, 2016 by the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, former DNC employee and the leaker of emails to WikiLeaks, Seth Rich was alive when the police found him on that date. He died later that morning.  The report also notes that Rich was conscious and breathing with gunshot wounds to his back when the police found him. The report also notes that at least three of the police at the scene wore body cameras that night.

FOIA request for the cam footage. Except:

The video from the body cameras has gone missing.

Curious, eh wot?

A manager of the Washington, D.C., bar where Democratic National Committee worker Seth Rich was last spotted hours before he was shot and killed last summer told WND that D.C. police officers never interviewed the bar’s staff or requested any evidence from the bar, including the bar’s surveillance video from that night, as part of an investigation into Rich’s murder.

The revelation backs up a claim made by a private investigator who worked on the case who said D.C. police were told to “stand down” on the investigation.

Why wouldn’t police investigate the last public place Seth Rich was seen before he was murdered? Surveillance footage could give a lot of clues such as was Seth Rich followed out of the bar? Was he in a heated exchange with anyone there? Was he on his phone? Was he wearing the same clothes he was later found in?

Those are all logical questions that any competent homicide detective would be asking. Of note for this post in terms of future revelations:

On Thursday, Dotcom provided a list of surveillance cameras that were near the Rich crime scene, which should have been able to offer at least a rough glance at the perpetrator.

If more is unearthed and the murder of Seth Rich somehow points back to the DNC or the Demorats?

Oh my.

Just as I said: it’s not the Russians

I speak to certain people now and then, and certain people have told me that the Russians — as Hillary Clinton accuses Donald Trump — are not behind the Wikileaks email releases from John Podesta.

As I wrote here and also here, about Hillary outing the NSA and threatening GAMMA national security classifications.

This past week another individual with whom I spoke and who has “contacts” as well, indicated he was told the NSA was responsible, due to HRC’s careless mishandling of the most sensitive intelligence possible — of that GAMMA nature — which, in turn, was responsible for the loss of life.

Steve Pieczenik (who has a doctorate from MIT in international relations, is a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Dr Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance and James Baker, and whom I featured in the previous post) likewise indicates the Russians were not responsible for the Wikileaks emails.

In addition, Paul Watson writes:

CONFIRMED: US INTEL OPERATIVES LEAKED CLINTON CAMPAIGN EMAILS, NOT RUSSIA

Insiders attempting to save America from Hillary presidency

It’s now clear from numerous sources that the Podesta hack, which led to Wikileaks releasing tens of thousands of Clinton campaign emails, as well as other hacks targeting the Democratic Party, were the work of U.S. intelligence operatives attempting to save America from a Clinton presidency.

The Clinton campaign has repeatedly insinuated that Russian agents were responsible for the release of the emails, but the reality is far different.

The hackers were concerned individuals who were alarmed at Hillary Clinton’s rampant corruption and mishandling of classified material as far back as 2009, when officials with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) became aware of violations of record keeping procedures at the Department of State under Secretary Clinton.

This is backed up by former British ambassador Craig Murray, who was told by security insiders that the email leak “comes from within official circles in Washington DC.”

This is most telling:

“Hillary has a problem with NSA because she compromised Gamma material,” (NSA whistleblower William) Binney said. “That is the most sensitive material at NSA.”

A phrase comes to mind now; something about “reaping” and “sowing.”

Even MORE corruption at the DOJ

us-doj-corrupt-smaller-aThe corruption is bald and staggering.

Early this year there was DOJ Word Pablum: criminals were to be called “justice involved individuals.” The words “felon” and “convict” were too harsh and judgmental to be allowed to slip off employee tongues. Euphemisms, verbal drivel, word salad.  What was the reason?

Votes.  Felon voters.  More votes for Demorats.  “Smoothing things out” for criminals so that the Demorats are remembered at voting time.

Just look at Virginia: a quarter of a million new voters for Demorats at the stroke of Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe’s imperial pen — an act not put past the voters, mind you — to include rapists and murderers.

Since McAuliffe’s executive order at the time, Breitbart reported:

Leftist groups sprung into action after Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe granted 206,000 felons the right to vote in April, including rapists and murderers, and have been working around the clock to get them on voter rolls.

According to a report by the Washington Post, activists want to swing the state for the Democratic nominee in November and for Democratic state officials. They’ve registered over 2,000 felons in two weeks. Hours after McAuliffe gave his order, activists were in poor and urban neighborhoods to start signing up ex-cons.

Just as Obama decided that a terrorist can’t be called a terrorist, and words don’t have real meanings any more, Obama’s rogue states have become “outliers” and pablum like “overseas contingency operations,” “man-caused disasters,” “countering violent extremism” and “kinetic military action” are the norm.

But wait; let us not forget these next grand paragraphs.

“Loretta Lynch simply wants to stay on as Attorney General under Clinton, so there is no way she would indict,” the source said. “James Comey thought his position [excoriating Clinton even as he let her off the hook] gave himself cover to remain on as director regardless of who wins.”

A few weeks ago from Wikileaks:

Adding to the controversy, WikiLeaks released internal Clinton communication records this week that show the Department of Justice kept Clinton’s campaign and her staff informed about the progress of its investigation.

Read that again: “the Department of Justice kept Clinton’s campaign and her staff informed about the progress of its investigation.”

triumvirate-of-corruption-democrat-lies-via-bill-and-hill-and-lorettaI’m not done. Then there was the story from Politico.com:

Obama DOJ drops charges against alleged provider of Libyan weapons

by Kenneth P. Vogel and Josh Gerstein

Arms dealer had threatened to expose Hillary Clinton’s talks about arming anti-Qadhafi rebels.

The Obama administration is moving to dismiss charges against an arms dealer it had accused of selling weapons that were destined for Libyan rebels.

Lawyers for the Justice Department on Monday filed a motion in federal court in Phoenix to drop the case against the arms dealer, an American named Marc Turi, whose lawyers also signed the motion.

A Turi associate asserted that the government dropped the case because the proceedings could have embarrassed Clinton and President Barack Obama by calling attention to the reported role of their administration in supplying weapons that fell into the hands of Islamic extremist militants.

Hillary Clinton knew of and had a hand in the gun-running scheme which originated from the oval office.

Because the US was involved in gun-running again, like Fast and Furious under prior AG Holder — (which resulted in the death of USBP Agent Brian Terry) — asses had to be covered (by the DOJ again), secrets had to be kept and lives, unfortunately, were lost once more. That time, four lives in Benghazi.

I stand slack-jawed anew with the Department of Injustice/Corruption (otherwise known as DIC). I suppose Leftists think no one is paying attention because, well, very few people are paying attention. Except: I pay attention. People who read this blog pay attention.

Let’s get right to the current buttery corruptive goodness, from ZeroHedge.com:

John Podesta’s Best Friend At The DOJ Will Be In Charge Of The DOJ’s Probe Into Huma Abedin Emails

by Tyler Durden

Now that the FBI has obtained the needed warrant to start poring over the 650,000 or so emails uncovered in Anthony Weiner’s notebook, among which thousands of emails sent from Huma Abedin using Hillary Clinton’s personal server, moments ago the US Justice Department announced it is also joining the probe, and as AP reported moments ago, vowed to dedicate all needed resources to quickly review the over half a million emails in the Clinton case.

Right. “All needed resources.” Sorry. Couldn’t resist.

In the letter to Congress, the DOJ writes that it “will continue to work closely with the FBI and together, dedicate all necessary resources and take appropriate steps as expeditiously as possible,” assistant attorney General Peter J. Kadzik writes in letters to House and Senate lawmakers.

Aha. Keep reading.

So far so good, even if one wonders just how active the DOJ will be in a case that has shown an unprecedented schism between the politically influenced Department of Justice and the FBI.

And yet, something felt odd about this.

Kadzik… Kadzik… where have we heard that name?

Oh yes. Recall our post from last week, “Clinton Campaign Chair Had Dinner With Top DOJ Official One Day After Hillary’s Benghazi Hearing” in which we reported that John Podesta had dinner with one of the highest ranked DOJ officials the very day after Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony?

It was Peter Kadzik.

Wait for it, wait for it.  .  .

In other words, the best friend of John Podesta, Clinton’s Campaign chair, at the DOJ will be in charge of a probe that could potentially sink Hillary Clinton.

I told you it would be worth waiting for. Assistant AG Peter J. Kadzik will be in charge of the DIC’s “probe” — airquotes — into Huma Abedin’s roughly 650,000 emails. I’m certain — aren’t you? — that the DIC will apply itself diligently and thoroughly to the investigation. What could possibly go wrong?

Do the words impropriety, corruption, tone-deafness, lack of ethics, transparency or honesty mean anything to anyone at DIC?

No. They don’t.

Who hacked DNC/Podesta emails and why? Was it really the Russians?

Please listen to this video from Andrew Napolitano.

From ZeroHedge.com:

NSA Whistleblower: Not So Fast On Claims Russia Behind Hillary Clinton Email Hack

The mainstream media alleges that Russia was behind the hack of Hillary Clinton’s emails.

The media is parading out the usual suspects alleged experts to back up this claim.

Washington’s Blog asked the highest-level NSA whistleblower in history, William Binney – the NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information, who served as the senior technical director within the agency, who managed six thousand NSA employees, the 36-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency and the NSA’s best-ever analyst and code-breaker, who mapped out the Soviet command-and-control structure before anyone else knew how, and so predicted Soviet invasions before they happened (“in the 1970s, he decrypted the Soviet Union’s command system, which provided the US and its allies with real-time surveillance of all Soviet troop movements and Russian atomic weapons”) – what he thinks of such claims:

Edward Snowden says the NSA could easily determine who hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails.

But mainstream media say it couldn’t:   http://www.businessinsider.com/dnc-hack-russian-government-2016-7

The mainstream media is also trumpeting the meme that Russia was behind the hack, because it wants to help Trump get elected. In other words, the media is trying to deflect how damaging the email leaks are to Clinton’s character by trying to somehow associate Trump with Putin.

See e.g. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/26/us/politics/kremlin-donald-trump-vladimir-putin.html

Who’s right?

The Demorat dog whistle about Russia hacking the DNC and John Podesta is just that.

Binney responded:

Snowden is right and the MSM is clueless. Here’s what I said to Ray McGovern and VIPS with a little humor at the end. [McGovern is a 27-year CIA veteran, who chaired National Intelligence Estimates and personally delivered intelligence briefings to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, their Vice Presidents, Secretaries of State, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and many other senior government officials. McGovern is co-founder of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (“VIPS” for short).]

Ray, I am suspicious that they may have looked for known hacking code (used by Russians). And, I’m sure they were one probably of many to hack her stuff. But, does that mean that they checked to see if others also hacked in?

Further, do they have evidence that the Russians downloaded and later forwarded those emails to wikileaks? Seems to me that they need to answer those questions to be sure that their assertion is correct. Otherwise, HRC and her political activities are and I am sure have been prime targets for the Russians (as well as many others) but without intent of course.

I would add that we proposed to do a program that would monitor all activity on the world-wide NSA network back in 1991/92. We called it “Wellgrounded.” NSA did not want anyone (especially congress) to know what was going on inside NSA and therefore rejected that proposal. I have not read what Ed has said, but, I do know that every line of code that goes across the network is logged in the network log. This is where a little software could scan, analyze and find the intruders initially and then compile all the code sent by them to determine the type of attack. This is what we wanted to do back in 1991/92.

The newest allegation tying the Clinton email hack to Russia seems to be all innuendo.

Please read the rest of the article.

You have to ask yourself: cui bono? Why would Russia not want Hillary Clinton in the White House? She would continue the overall leadership begun by Barack Hussein Obama — which is to say, little. Obama’s tactic is to “lead from behind” (a ludicrous oxymoron by itself) and, with that, Russia under the guidance of Putin realizes that Obama and, by extension, Clinton have been amenable to “working” with Russia and the so-called “reset.”

Let’s not forget it was Barack Hussein Obama who, sotto voce, told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in 2012 that “after my election I’ll have more flexibility.”

Ask yourself: would Putin truly want a loose cannon like Donald Trump in the White House? This is how Reagan was characterized in 1979 and 1980 by Carter and his campaign — a “loose cannon” with his crazy, palsied finger on the nuke pile.

When you have the government hacking itself in order to keep national security, you have in many ways lost that government. An internal hack because you don’t trust a presidential candidate not to keep your secrets or kill your people?

Ladies and gentlemen, we are losing America and watching it devolve before our very eyes. It is astounding and sad, simultaneously.

Who hacked the DNC and the emails?

Ask again: cui bono?
