Critics Say Russian Hacking Story Driven by Hidden Agendas, Unsupportable Claims
It seems as if there is an incredibly coordinated and time-sensitive unleashing of media propaganda being pushed on the eleventh hour by the far-left liberal organizations.
Many of the biggies, like the Washington Post and ABC News have put out numerous articles on the same topic as if to flood the internet with information designed to influence electors and the public. It is frightening the level of revenge and spite the Left has exhibited.
It is also quite interesting to see how far back in the pages of google is buried articles like this one from Breitbart. Makes one wonder…
Regarding the supposed Russian hacks and the supposed motive towards helping Trump get elected, the article from Breitbart serves to remind clearer-thinking individuals that determining motive with anonymous and unverified information smells really, really badly.
And that is what we see is flooding the internet. Be cautious of information from liberal left news. They understand their power and they use it shamelessly.
Supporters of WikiLeaks have reacted harshly to suggestions they were stooges for a Russian intelligence operation. Among the harshest criticisms was penned by Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept, in which the Washington Post’s Friday story was criticized as “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.”
Greenwald assailed the Post for burying the concession that intelligence officials disagreed about the CIA’s assessment deep in their story. He also warned that intelligence leaks from anonymous sources should not be taken at face value because it is impossible to verify the credentials or consider the motivations of anonymous leakers, especially when they refer to classified material that the public cannot see for itself and the leaks occur with suspiciously precise political-bombshell timing.
The UK Guardian on Saturday relayed a sharp denunciation of the CIA assessment from Craig Murray, formerly ambassador to Uzbekistan for the United Kingdom and a close associate of WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange. (His sharp denunciation was, verbatim: “Bullshit. They are absolutely making it up.”)
Murray claims he knows who leaked the DNC’s data to WikiLeaks, and, in fact, has met them personally to receive the documents in question. “They are certainly not Russian, and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack,” he said.
He also argued that if agents of the Russian government were involved and the CIA knew who they were, there would have been repercussions far beyond anonymous sources leaking spicy information to select newspapers a month before the new president takes office: “America has not been shy about arresting whistleblowers and it’s not been shy about extraditing hackers. They plainly have no knowledge whatsoever.”
As long as some of the crucial evidence is kept secret – which may be inevitable for a long time to come, given the nature of cyberespionage investigations – and the news is driven by leaks from nameless, faceless sources, there is plenty of room for outlandish claims and unsupported assertions on all sides of the 2016 hacking saga. It is past time for some cards to be played face-up on the table, by players with names and faces.

Well said. We want to see the cards. But libs know how to play the game. There is limited time before Trump is officially elected by the electoral college. They know that facts can’t come out for all to see, so they spit out their usual propaganda and innuendo with no fear of being fact-checked, and with all the power and position to sway Americans.
Don’t listen to them. They have proved over and over that they are not trustworthy, but are motivated by their leftist ideals.
