New “Evidence” Of Russian “Meddling” Released On Eve Of Trump-Putin Summit
New “Evidence” Of Russian “Meddling” Released On Eve Of Trump-Putin Summit by Harley Schlanger – Rogue Money
July 15 — Events of the last days reveal, once again, the desperation of defenders of the collapsing Trans-Atlantic system to prevent a successful outcome when U.S. President Trump meets with Russia President Putin in Helsinki. Deputy U.S. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate allegations of Russian meddling and Trump collusion in the 2016 presidential election, announced on July 13 — three days before the Trump-Putin summit — the indictment of 12 Russians for allegedly hacking into the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and various Clinton campaign websites. The twelve were identified as members of the GRU, the Russian military intelligence agency, which the indictment claims engaged in a systemic effort to disrupt the election.
The indictment appears to confirm the initial charges made by U.S. intelligence agencies, in their infamous report of January 7, 2017, asserting “high confidence” in their assessment of Russian interference. The new indictments have led to an outcry against the Trump-Putin summit, with some, such as Charles Schumer, the Democratic minority leader in the Senate [who had previously threatened Trump with the intelligence community having ‘six ways from Sunday’ to get back at him for challenging Russiagate — JWS], and Republican Senator John McCain, demanding that either Trump aggressively confront Putin with this new “evidence”, or cancel the summit.
In any case how can FBI & DOJ claim nation is under attack by foreign power without examining server? Did they give Manafort or Cohen choice to withhold their computers? And why hasn’t any1 in Stupid Party GOP made an issue of it? https://t.co/GuQcIJnEAW

‘The Mueller team’s findings were countered by former NSA Technical Director William Binney, who described the evidence in the indictment as “a fabrication.” Binney, who conducted on behalf of the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) the only forensic evaluation of the “hacking” — which concluded the leaked emails resulted from an “inside job”, not hacking — reiterated that the FBI “never even bothered to examine the DNC computers, relying instead on the DNC and Atlantic Council cyber contractor Crowdstrike for its evidence.” Crowdstrike is run by Dmitri Alperovitch, a notorious Putin-hater, and its conclusions in other cyber investigations have been challenged.
