Former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and close WikiLeaks associate Craig Murray said he has met the person who gave over 20,000 DNC emails to WikiLeaks and they are not Russian.
The Guardian reached out to Murray while reporting about how the CIA concluded Russia helped Trump win, and he called literal ‘bullshit’ on the intelligence agency’s claim:
“I know who leaked them,” Murray told The Guardian. “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.”
He then took to his own blog to defend his claims, and while he sounds convincing on paper, there is little chance he will be taken seriously.
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.
Murry believes this entire claim is being used by global neocons to ensure a conflict against Russia:
The worst thing about all this is that it is aimed at promoting further conflict with Russia. This puts everyone in danger for the sake of more profits for the arms and security industries – including of course bigger budgets for the CIA.
During his interview with The Guardian, Murry also notes that the US government has historically done an excellent job of extraditing and arresting hackers. Thus, if the CIA knows who is behind these actions, they would have arrested the hacker already.
Something isn’t adding up.
