After addressing a cybersecuirty conference in London,
<http://www.zerohedge.com/#reddit>notorious hacker 'Guccifer' shared over
500Mb of documents
100,000 DNC donors contact info and donations*. A large number of the* largest
donors received senior diplomatic or political positions following the
donations*, ranging from UK Ambassador to Assistant Attorney General. The
DNC released a statement* pre-emptively claiming that this was the work of
Russia* (and reigniting Trump's links to Putin).
Probably just coincidence...
*The docoments contained detailed lists of 100,000 alledged donors,
addresses, and phone numbers, and well as amounts donated...*

*The DNC responded* to the latest hack claim Tuesday through its Interim
Chair Donna Brazile, who stated that the* “DNC is the victim of a
she blamed on* “Russian state-sponsored agents,” *while also cautioning
that the hacked documents were still being authenticated by the DNC legal
team, a*s “it is common for Russian hackers to forge documents.”* DNC
pre-emptively published a statement in an attempt to change the narrative...
Once again blaming Russia (and Trump)... As RT reports,
<https://www.rt.com/news/359234-obama-trump-rt-putin-hussein/>* it's not
the first time that the name of Vladimir Putin has been brought up in the
US presidential campaign, but this time the US president used this
“argument” while openly campaigning for Clinton against Trump. *The
situation has become “really ludicrous and it borders on the ridiculous,”
believes Gregory R. Copley, editor of Defense & Foreign Affairs.
*“In my 50 odd years covering the US government, I have never seen this
level of partisanship within the administration where a sitting president
actually regards the opposition party as the enemy of the state,” *Copley
The analyst said that the democrats are “blaming the messenger to revert
the attention from the message.”
“The message which Donald Trump delivered on RT was unambiguous in his
campaign. Just like the fact that WikiLeaks revelation of the hacked emails
was very explicit in showing up what the Democratic party itself was
doing,” Copley added.
*The US establishment is “sacrificing key bilateral relationships in order
to win [a] domestic election,”* believes Copley. He added that neither
Obama nor Clinton are interested in unifying the country, but they are
rather “interested in winning and engaging in what modern democracy seems
to have become – the tyranny of the marginal majority over the marginal
“When you think about the number of times that the Clinton campaign has
brought up President Putin and the alleged Russian hacking of Hillary
Clinton’s service, it makes you wonder just how desperate they are,” Copley
noted.* “President Obama has lost literally all prestige in an
international community…with the loss of prestige he has become desperate.”*
