The Democrat Party was hacked last summer. This was during the Democrat National Convention. You’re also familiar with Wikileaks releasing condemning emails about presidential candidate Hilary Clinton. For months, everyone assumed Russia did it. Maybe it wasn’t Russia after all.
Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange tells a different story. According to Assange, Russia has no involvement. Neither does Moscow or Russian president Vladimir Putin. Alternative news site RT follows this story. On this site, veteran reporter John Pilger interviews Assange. In the interview, he calls Russian involvement in the hacking ‘fictional’. Assange also denied Wikileaks played a role. Assange says the allegations further promoted anti-Russian hysteria. But on the other hand Assange says, “I actually feel quite sorry for Clinton as a person…”
Hacking plagued the Hilary Clinton campaign for months. Around March 2016, Wikileaks got 30,000 emails from Mrs. Clinton’s private server. Furthermore, 20,000 emails leaked out. These emails exposed a bad attitude toward Bernie Sanders. But what happened last month was the ultimate nail. Wikileaks released over 50,000 emails. They’re connected to John Podesta, Bill Clinton’s former Chief of Staff. But now, this batch of emails has everybody in the hot seat. These emails also erased Mrs. Clinton’s comfortable lead in the polls.
Therefore, I don’t know who to trust. Here at Computer Geeks our Managed Services regularly detect hacking attempts. ?IT Support sees everything and it’s scary. ?Maybe Russia had nothing to do with the hackings. Maybe Assange had nothing to do with it. But I love the way (I mean this with the utmost sarcasm) the media spun this around. Everybody, especially mainstream media, made Russia look like the villain in all this. Even I’ve written blogs that went that way. So if I misled you that way, I sincerely apologize. It turns out Moscow may not have hacked into the any of the emails. But if they didn’t, then who did? Managed Services allows us to trace where hackers are from but even then a good hacker can make it look like thy’re from Russia when they’re not. ?These thousands of emails didn’t just fall on Assange’s desk or sneak by IT Support. So where did they come from? And who can we trust?
