Oliver Stone has blatantly accused the DNC of hacking it’s own email system and releasing the damaging results around the convention.
Stone, who is currently promoting his Edward Snowden biopic, said intelligence experts he has spoke with believe that the DNC hack was “probably an inside job.”
The hack and release led quickly to the ousting of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and revealed a concerted effort to make sure Hillary became the nominee! Hillary Clinton quickly snapped her up to help with the campaign.
Stone does not believe that Russia was behind the attacks and called it “fiction”.
The Daily Beast reports:
During an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday, director Oliver Stone accused the Democratic National Committee of hacking itself. Asked by the host what he makes of the reports that Russian hackers breached the DNC’s email server and fed information to WikiLeaks in an attempt to influence the U.S. presidential election, Stone called that idea a “great fiction.” The director, currently promoting his biopic of Edward Snowden, said the intelligence experts he has spoken with indicated that the DNC hack was “probably an inside job.” He went on to specify that he believed the hack was perpetrated by Democrats within the committee. The revelations from the hack led directly to the resignation of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and other high-level officials.
Over 19,000 emails from top DNC officials were released during the convention.
The leaked DNC email scandal revealed many secrets, including that ex-Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz wanted MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski silenced!
Wasserman was extremely frustrated with Brzezinski over negative coverage of how the primary was handled by the DNC.
Wasserman went as far as to email NBC’s Chuck Todd on May 18th to tell him that it “must stop”.
An inside job sounds very feasible. There has been some serious dissension in the ranks of the DNC. The release proved the DNC was fighting amongst themselves concerning Bernie Sanders. They worked hard to take him down and not everyone was happy about that.
What is next? We will see!
