In an interview with Sean Hannity on Thursday, (15th Dec 2016), Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, declared that Russia did not provide hacked documents.
“Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange told Hannity.
“In other words, let me be clear,” Hannity asked, “Russia did not give you the Podesta documents, or anything from the DNC?”
“That’s correct,” Assange replied.
Wikileaks has been accused by the U.S. government, and most if not all main stream media in the USA and around the world, of working with Russian state actors during the presidential election to hack Democratic Party organisations and provide damaging information about Hillary Clinton in order to sway the election in favour of Donald Trump.
This is pretty conclusively proven to be untrue. Who is peddling “Fake News” now?
But the real investigation should be into what the DNC and Podesta where up to, not how did it come to the public knowledge. If the emails where all innocent, there would have been no news.
