Who hacked the Democratic National Committee? Was it the Russians? Hillary Clinton thinks so and she and the Democrats have been very vocal about it going so far as to accuse the Russians of working for Donald Trump’s campaign.
In the last debate Chris Wallace asked Hillary a question about a speech that was given to Brazilian bankers, noting that the information it been made available to the public through WikiLeaks. Clinton didn’t answer the question, instead she deflected. “The Russian government has engaged in espionage against Americans, hacking American websites, American accounts of private people, of institutions… In an effort, is 17 of our intelligence agencies have confirmed, to influence the election.”
In fact, only two agencies – The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the Department of Homeland Security – has said anything directly on the DNC hacking. All they said was that the attacks “are consistent with the methods and motivation of Russian directed efforts.”
That’s a long way from confirming that the Russians hacked the DNC and it certainly says nothing about the Russians trying to influence the U.S. election.
Judge Andrew Napolitano is speaking out on this issue, and he’s got some really interesting information.
A former high-ranking NSA official-turned-whistleblower, William Binney, is talking about the DNC being hacked. And according to Binney it wasn’t the Russians, it was the National Security Agency. Binney says a, “disgruntled U.S. intelligence worker” is most likely behind the breach.
Apparently the FBI has access to a series of NSA databases that helps them track down terrorists. According to Binney the FBI has access to the NSA database and it’s accessed with no oversight. He went on to say, “so if the FBI really wanted [Clinton’s and the DNC’s emails] they can go into that database and get them right now.”
With respect to which emails the NSA and the FBI would have access to, Binney said they would have access to all emails “including the deleted correspondence … They have them all and the FBI can get them right there.”
This new information certainly raises a whole bunch of questions for FBI director Comey. None of which will be answered if Hillary Clinton is elected president on November 8.
