British ambassador Craig Murray confirms DNC and Podesta leaks were
the work of a Washington insider; and says he knows identity and has
met with this person. FBI meanwhile casts doubt on CIA claim DNC and
Podesta leaks were the work of Russia.
Murray, Britain’s former ambassador to Russia and a close friend of
Julian Assange, has now confirmed that he knows the identity of the
person who leaked the DNC and Podesta leaks to Wikileaks, and that
this person is not Russian and has no connection to the Russian
the contrary, he is a Washington insider.
Murray has moreover told the Guardian that he has actually met with
wanting to know more of what Craig Murray is saying should read
his statement on
his blog. Indeed it should be mandatory reading for anyone
interested in the truth of this affair.
the subject of his personal knowledge and reputation for truthfulness
and credibility Craig Murray has this to say
both Julian Assange and I have stated definitively the leak does not
come from Russia. Do we credibly have access? Yes, very obviously.
Very, very few people can be said to definitely have access to the
source of the leak. The people saying it is not Russia are those who
do have access. After access, you consider truthfulness. Do Julian
Assange and I have a reputation for truthfulness? Well in 10 years
not one of the tens of thousands of documents WikiLeaks has released
has had its authenticity successfully challenged. As for me, I have a
reputation for inconvenient truth telling.”
have previously put on record my own strong doubts that Russia is
behind the DNC and Podesta leaks. Now Craig Murray – a
former British ambassador who (unlike me) is a personal friend of
Julian Assange – has come forward to say that he knows 100% as fact
that Russia is not behind the leaks.
Murray is a man of proven integrity who as a former senior diplomat
has handled classified intelligence material and who therefore knows
how to separate fact from fiction. If he says he knows
100% for sure that Russia is not responsible for the DNC and Podesta
leaks, then given the sources he has that is good enough for me, as
it should be for all reasonable people.”
other words those who are actually in a position to know and whose
record of truthfulness is beyond doubt confirm that the DNC and
Podesta leaks were not done by Russia.
it appears that the FBI, the organisation which as I have repeatedly
pointed out has sole competence in this matter, is also
casting doubt on
the CIA’s claims of Russian involvement in the leaks.
light of all this the fact the CIA, the Hillary Clinton Campaign, the
Democratic Party, certain hardline Republican Senators, and the
mainstream media, are all persisting with an allegation that is
obviously untrue, is deeply worrying.
shows that my concerns yesterday that the situation in the US is
beginning to acquire the trappings
of a pre-coup situation were
not exaggerated. Certainly the US has never been in this sort of
CIA's latest report implicating Russia in the DNC and Podesta leaks
is not founded on any evidence. Coming a few weeks before Donald
Trump's inauguration it is more dangerous meddling by the US
intelligence community in the US political process
