    Russians Used ‘Cut Out’ In Leak To Wikileaks

    Trump Russia Hearing: Russians Used ‘Cut Out’ In Leak To Wikileaks — But Who? – Inquisitr

     

    <snip>

    “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.”

    1. That's pathetic –

    “We assess they used some kind of cut-out,” – this is merely more guesswork, in an effort to keep beating that poor dead Russian horse.

    • *Obligatory disclaimer - when I say "Democratic Party" I mean the DNC - the Clintons and the un-elected people and the consultants and the lobbyists and the corporations who actually run things.  The people who work and vote and are registered as "D" are no more the actual party than Trekkies are Star Trek.   Extra credit - the Democratic Party gets to actually fuck up your life. When you vote for it.
    You think the only reason that people won't vote for a warmongering Third Way fracking-enabling cluster bomb throwing H-1B increasing lying pandering corporate and Wall Street shill who says she has no problem putting abortion rights on the table is because we are mad about Bernie?  Um, nope.

      2. It's a crock. Another one.

      "The NSA’s capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything. There would be no place to hide."  Frank Church "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." - Frederic Bastiat, 1848

    3. In other words, we have no evidence we choose to have publicly examined.

    Nyet.

    4. No discussion of who exactly "they" was either.

    “Some Russians” of one sort or another, we are left to assume.

    It ain't the things you don't know that hurts you, it's the things you know that ain't so.

    6. How would the FBI know?

    They were never allowed to see the DNC servers.

      11. He admits to guessing. The mighty FBI flaming out on a cold lie.

      What a pathetic legacy.

    7. And yet with all of the technology that the NSA employs, they still don't . .

    . . . know who leaked what to whom or who hacked what. Incredible. Guccifer 2 is Romanian, so I don’t think the Russians got anything from him. But, we’ll have to see what else comes out from their investigation.

    8. We assess = we think = we guess = we want you to believe = we are grasping at

    straws!

    Some kind of a cutout? What the hell is that? This is stupid, even for them!

    9. In other words, "We got nothing but we'll keep the lie going…"

    “cut-out”, what a laugh.

    These idiots make fun of Trump for claiming that Obama had the FBI hack him with no proof whatsoever, but here they all are claiming the Russians did something with zero proof and a continuously changing story.

    They are all cut from the same cloth.

    DemExit! Don't give the Democrats a dime. Don't identify as a Democrat. Drop Democratic identification below 20%. Only then will they support true progressive policy. Until then, corporate money rules.

        16. That was my point. They are no different.

        Red team, blue team you get the same dishonest bullshit. And the fools on each team only recognize the dishonesty from the other side, not their own.

        DemExit! Don't give the Democrats a dime. Don't identify as a Democrat. Drop Democratic identification below 20%. Only then will they support true progressive policy. Until then, corporate money rules.

      17. The CIA has a 70 year history of disseminating deceptive propaganda.

      In fact, that is one of its primary functions.

      I know who I DON’T believe.

    19. LEt's not forget

    that Assange inferred that these were never Hacks but rather  LEAKS

    …and you think you’re going to stop this simply by ‘pulling a lever’, in a booth, behind a curtain, every 2 years? - Know yourself. And if you need help with that, call the FBI. -  There is only ONE solution to this mess:  New Party !
