A former British ambassador Craig Murray has confirmed that the Democratic National Convention (DNC) and Podesta leaks were the work of a Washington insider, because he personally knows the identity of this person.

    The FBI and CIA are at loggerheads, after the CIA stated that the pre-election leaks were the work of Russia. Murray, Britain’s former ambassador to Russia says the hacker is not Russian and has no connection to the Russian government, yet the CIA is persisting with its claims.

    According to Murray, the hacker is actually a Washington insider. He told the Guardian that he has met with this person.

    “Now both Julian Assange and I have stated definitively the leak does not come from Russia. Do we credibly have access? Yes, very obviously. Very, very few people can be said to definitely have access to the source of the leak. The people saying it is not Russia are those who do have access. After access, you consider truthfulness. Do Julian Assange and I have a reputation for truthfulness? Well in 10 years not one of the tens of thousands of documents WikiLeaks has released has had its authenticity successfully challenged. As for me, I have a reputation for inconvenient truth telling.”

    President-elect Donald Trump together with the FBI, as the sole organisation with legal competence in this matter, are casting doubt on the CIA’s claims of Russian involvement in the leaks. Trump has rubbished the claims in a FoxNews interview this weekend.

    Despite the intelligence community’s claims, Trump—along with other Republican leaders—insist there is no evidence supporting the conclusion that the Russians hacked the election in order to help elect him.

    “These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction,” a Trump transition team statement reads, referring to reports that Russians interfered with the presidential poll.

    The latest fact-free, anti-Trump political stunt might be staged for the next nine days as a soft coup attempt by pockets in the intelligence community and Obama Admin to influence the Electoral College vote.

    Why the CIA, the Hillary Clinton Campaign, the Democratic Party, and the mainstream corporate media, are all persisting with an allegation that is obviously untrue, is deeply troubling and may be pointing towards an effort to steal the election.
