“More suiciding from Clinton’s DNC???”
The new leaks show that Obama operated a “pay to play” scheme for ambassadorships and other positions and also imply that Hillary has a life-threatening condition called sinus thrombosis, helped create ISIS, and was responsible for the death of Americans in Benghazi.
A few weeks ago, Julian Assange of Wikileaks told the world that he had incriminating information that could further damage Hillary Clinton’s chances at the presidency. The DNC leaks, realized by hacker Guccifer 2.0, have already brought tremendous embarrassment and added scrutiny to the DNC, which has since struggled to recuperate popular legitimacy. The DNC, in an effort to divert attention from its criminal actions, has sought to refocus public attention on Russia.
In an official statement, the DNC claimed to be “the victim of a crime – an illegal cyber attack by Russian state-sponsored agents who seek to harm the Democratic Party and progressive groups in an effort to influence the presidential election.” Other hacks that have also cast US institutions in a bad light have similarly been blamed on Russia despite a lack of evidence. The Russian government has also officially deniedinvolvement. However, since propaganda is now legal in the United States, the fact that there is no factual basis to blame Russia suggests that the DNC is using dirty tricks that could inflame a new Cold War to keep unwanted attention from its own actions.
The source of the leaks was all but confirmed by Wikileaks to have been a DNC insider and not a Russian operative. Said insider, Seth Rich, was shot and murdered in a senseless crime that many suspect was a politically-motivated homicide. The murder of a Wikileaks’ lawyer also followed a few days later.
