Rod Rosenstein Indicts 12 Russian Nationals for Hacking, Uses Thin Accusations to Pollute Upcoming Trump-Putin Summit

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the indictments of 12 Russian nationals, formally accusing them of hacking the email servers for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the 2016 election, and giving the information to WikiLeaks Julian Assange to publish and throw election.  Rosenstein’s indictment confirms that there were no Americans involved in either the hacking or the dissemination of the Democrats’ emails.  The DNC has refused to allow an inspection of its servers.  The timing of the announcement has led critics to believe that the deep state is trying to sabotage President Trump’s upcoming meeting with Russian President Putin.

In order to save face over an investigation that has failed to produce a smoking gun regarding charges of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, the US elite have opted to indict Russian intelligence officials for election meddling. Yet the evidence, once again, is missing in action.

Amid harsh criticism at home for its failure to provide proof of Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election, at the very same time that Trump is preparing to meet with Vladimir Putin for a summit in Helsinki, the US Deep State has resorted to playing spoiler with the most overplayed hand in modern political history: the ‘Blame Russia’ card.

On Friday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced indictments against 12 members of Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff, also known as GRU, for “conspiring to interfere with the 2016 presidential election.”

According to the 29-page indictment, the defendants devised fictional online personas to compromise computers affiliated with the Democratic National Committee, as well as Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. The purported ‘hack’ led to the release of tens of thousands of stolen emails by WikiLeaks. These communications revealed what amounts to criminal behavior on the part of the DNC, including overt bias against Democratic presidential nominee Bernie Sanders in favor of Hillary Clinton, as well as evidence that Clinton was fed the questions to public debates against Donald Trump. Those very serious findings have been sidelined amid the storm known as Russiagate.

The Russian Foreign Ministry vehemently rejected the accusations, saying it was a coordinated effort by “influential political forces in the US that are opposed to the normalization of relations between our countries and have spread open slander for the past two years.”

“The goal of this ‘information attack’ is obviously to spoil the atmosphere prior to the Russian-American summit,” the ministry said, referring to the forthcoming meeting between Putin and Trump.

Indeed, the accusations leveled against the Russians ring hollow for several credible reasons.

First, the claims do not flush with WikiLeaks’ account as to how it came to possess the information. WikiLeaks founder and editor, Julian Assange, who has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for over four years for fear of being extradited to the US, has denied that any state player was responsible for the “leak.”

“We’re unhappy that we felt that we needed to even say that it wasn’t a state party,” Assange told Sean Hannity of Fox News. “Normally, we say nothing at all.”

“We have … a strong interest in protecting our sources, and so we never say anything about them, never ruling anyone in or anyone out,” Assange added.

Craig Murray, the former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, who is now an affiliate of WikiLeaks, revealed that he knows the identity of the source.

“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.”

For those who prefer to see evidence before they jump the gun and wrongly accuse someone – in this case a nuclear-armed power – they share the approach of Devin Nunes, chair of the House intelligence committee, who said:

“I’ll be the first one to come out and point at Russia if there’s clear evidence, but there is no clear evidence – even now. There’s a lot of innuendo, lots of circumstantial evidence, that’s it.”

Second, according to an independent analysis carried out by a group called Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), the DNS servers were compromised not through a ‘hack’ from some outside party, but rather through a ‘leak,’ that is, an ‘inside job.’

Somebody needs to create a gif morphing this picture of Rosenstein with one of Gerbles and back.

The Russians did nothing to the elections in 2016. Seth Rich downloaded the Clinton emails, 10,000 or more of them, and then gave them to Kim DotCom who then turned them over to WikiLeaks. Then, the DNC figured that out, and murdered Seth Rich for doing that. That’s the truth of the matter. Plain and simple. Seth Rich was fed up with the apparent fixing of the DNC to put Hillary Clinton up as the Democratic parties nomination for the 2016 general election. Period. That’s the truth about the whole matter. The Russians ran some ads on RT in support… Read more »
