In an interview with The Guardian, a former UK ambassador, Craig Murray, called the CIA claims “bulls**t”, adding: “They are absolutely making it up.”
“I know who leaked them,” Murray said. “I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.
“If what the CIA are saying is true, and the CIA’s statement refers to people who are known to be linked to the Russian state, they would have arrested someone if it was someone inside the United States.
“America has not been shy about arresting whistleblowers and it’s not been shy about extraditing hackers. They plainly have no knowledge whatsoever.”
I do not know Craig Murray, nor can I vouch for what he says. But it has more ring of truth about it than the claims that the Russians have been leaking these emails.
I am sure the Russians do hack many things in the USA, and all over the world. Like wise we, the USA, Israel and any country that is not struggling just to survive is doing this.
But that does not mean that they leaked the emails.
I do not believe that from what is left behind on server logs etc. you can tell who hacked into a server, at lest not accurately. It is too easy to spoof the information that would be recorded. Russian hackers would for sure know how to do this. The only way would be to be monitoring in real time. We must ask, do the Americans have 18 intelligence agencies monitoring internet hacking in real time, and if they do… why did non of them stop the hack.
I believe there is something fishy about the claims that Russia has been interfering with the USA election.
