A New Report Raises Big Questions About Last Year's DNC Hack

Former NSA experts say it wasn't a hack at all, but a leak - an inside job by someone
with access to the DNC's system.

"There was no hack of the Democratic National Committee's system on July 5 last year -
not by the Russians, not by anyone else. Hard science now demonstrates it was a leak - a
download executed locally with a memory key or a similarly portable data-storage device.
In short, it was an inside job by someone with access to the DNC's system. This casts
serious doubt on the initial 'hack,' as alleged, that led to the very consequential
publication of a large store of documents on WikiLeaks last summer."

The Nation Article About the DNC Hack Is Too Incoherent to Even Debunk

Conclusive proof, or even strong evidence, that the DNC emails were leaked
by an insider and not by Russian-sponsored hackers would indeed be a huge
story — among other things, it would contradict the near-unanimous opinion
of U.S. intelligence agencies, and raise some very serious questions about
their objectivity and neutrality.

But this article is neither conclusive proof nor strong evidence. It’s the
extremely long-winded product of a crank, and it’s been getting attention
only because it appears in a respected left-wing publication like The
Nation. Anyone hoping to read it for careful reporting and clear explanation
is going to come away disappointed, however.

...

There may be evidence out there, somewhere, that a vast conspiracy theory
has taken place to cover up a leak and blame Russia. But it’s going to need
to be at least comprehensible.

The 'rebuttal' makes the original look like a Pulitzer-winner by comparison. Hopefully
more name-calling will ensue.

The Dems still can't admit they picked the wrong horse for them Camptown
Races.

Do-da, do-da.
