WikiLeaks Ally: Democrat Emails Were Leaked, Not Hacked

U.S. officials claim that they have incontrovertible evidence tying election hacks to the highest levels of the Russian government, but an associate of WikiLeaks says that’s baloney. Craig Murray, a former British ambassador and a close friend of WikiLeaks head honcho Julian Assange, said this week that not only were the Russians a scapegoat for the hacks, the emails actually weren’t “hacked” at all!

In comments to the UK’s Daily Mail, Murray said that the emails from the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta’s server came to WikiLeaks from a “disgusted” Democratic Party whistleblower, not the Kremlin.

“Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians,” Murray said. “The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks.”

Murray said the insiders were not motivated by any love for Donald Trump, unlike what some intelligence officials believe. He said they were inspired by “disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders.”

Oh, what’s this? A completely believable, grounded theory on the hacks? Gee, what to think, what to think…

Now we have two stories. Which one should we put our faith in? Should we believe that Vladimir Putin somehow pulled off the geopolitical feat of the century right under the noses of the world’s most extensive intelligence network? Or should we believe that some righteously angry Anonymous-wannabe sent WikiLeaks the emails because they were upset about Sanders not getting his due? Think back to the primaries and see which of these theories makes more sense.

Murray’s record isn’t spotless; the Daily Mail report reminds readers that he was fired from his ambassadorship under controversial circumstances. Nevertheless, his comments echo those made earlier in the year by Assange himself. The story all along has been that the emails originated with a disgruntled Democratic Party staffer.

Perhaps Russia did play a role in the hacks. It won’t be long before we all know for certain what they did and what their motivations were for doing so. In the meantime, though, Democrats are trying to make it sound like Trump and Putin colluded behind the scenes on these cyberattacks. They can’t come right out and make that accusation, but it lurks behind every single one of these stories. They are waging a propaganda war right now, and we should not accept anything on “their say so.”

When you have some evidence, let us know. Until then, start treating Trump with the same respect you extended to every other president-elect in American history.
