Wikileaks has called out former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and his inability to grasp the timeline of events regarding the DNC Hack along with the mails that followed.
As reported by dailycaller.com
“Back in April, Russia utilized a third party’cut-out’ to deliver over 19,000 DNC mails and more than 8,000 files to WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, Trying to cover its tracks and also to provide WikiLeaks some degree of deniability in understanding that the source of the leaks,” Clapper composed in his new book”
Of the 27,500 DNC emails WikiLeaks printed, fewer than 7,000 pre-date April 29, as The Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported.
DNC CEO Amy Dacey learned of the breach in late April and brought from the private cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike. However, CrowdStrike’s existence didn’t stop the flow, and the majority of the emails were not even written, much less stolen, until after the company was already on the scene.
The DNC declined to give its host to the FBI as evidence, and the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community relied in part on CrowdStrike’s private analysis to form its conclusions concerning the hack — despite the company accepting weeks to stem the bleeding.
WikiLeaks’ Friday response to Clapper cites”resources,” meaning that there were likely multiple. Additionally, it refers to”published” mails, whereas Clapper called emails being”sent” into WikiLeaks.
It’s possible that, though Clapper’s statement is true, there could have been more emails shipped in April which WikiLeaks did not print or there was still another source Clapper monitored but wasn’t the origin of what WikiLeaks finally published.
