THE WASHINGTON POST late Friday night published an explosive story that, in many ways, is classic American journalism of the worst sort: The key claims are based exclusively on the unverified assertions of anonymous officials, who in turn are disseminating their own claims about what the CIA purportedly believes, all based on evidence that remains completely secret.

These unnamed sources told the Post that “the CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system.” The anonymous officials also claim that “intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails” from both the DNC and John Podesta’s email account. Critically, none of the actual evidence for these claims is disclosed; indeed, the CIA’s “secret assessment” itself remains concealed. – READ MORE

    So Democrat party staffer Seth Rich is murdered and the Democratic Party had little to say. It was strongly hinted by Julian Assange that Rich was the DC leaker and WIKILEAKS offered a reward to find his murderer. If Rich DID NOT leak the information, Julian Assange would not know Rich or have any reason to offer a reward. I believe this whole “Russia did it” thing is an attempt by Hillary Clinton and the Democrats to draw out Julian Assange and get him to reveal his sources. If Assange takes the bait, no one would trust WIKILEAKS with their information again – thus effective shutting down the organization. Clinton is known for her murderous vendettas and this is an attempt to get world governments, the CIA, State Department and FBI to once again go after Julian Assange and stifle the flow of information plus try to diminish the Trump administration. She won’t be satisfied until Assange is dead.

    “…“intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails” from both the DNC and John Podesta’s email account. Critically, none of the actual evidence for these claims is disclosed; indeed, the CIA’s “secret assessment” itself remains concealed…”

    So these buffoons are admitting that the emails that Wikileaks exposed were IN FACT John Podesta’s.
    The content of those emails was so damning that in a just world the entire bunch of Podesta, Clinton, et al, would be in prison.
    In the words of Arte Johnson on the 70s TV comedy, Laugh In, “Very Interesting But Also Stupid”…

    The anonymous officials also claim that ,”…intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails” from both the DNC and John Podesta’s email account…”

    So let’s get this straight.
    The MSM, in cahoots with the Clinton Organized Crime Syndicate, originally claimed that the “content” of the now infamous emails was “fabricated”, most likely by Russia. And now the fumbling, bumbling MSM claims that these emails were hacked directly FROM Podesta’s email account and “PROVIDED” to Wikileaks.

    Un Phuqqing believable…
    These idiots make Inspector Clouseau look like Einstein
