Trump Russia Hearing: Russians Used ‘Cut Out’ In Leak To Wikileaks — But Who? – Inquisitr
“We assess they used some kind of cut-out,” Comey testified, when asked about the Russia-Wikileaks connections by HSCI Ranking Democratic member Adam Schiff of California. “They didn’t deal directly with WikiLeaks, in contrast to DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0.”
Watch the exchange between Comey and Schiff in the following video clip.

“DCLeaks” was a separate website created allegedly by the hackers themselves to disseminate emails hacked and stolen from the Democratic National Committee and published online immediately prior the Democratic convention last July.
“Guccifer 2.0” is the name taken by a hacker or group of hackers that United States intelligence agencies believe were actually Russian government intelligence agents.
However, no members of the committee followed up with Comey on whether or not the FBI has information regarding the identity of the “cut out.”
