Former NSA Technical Director: Russia Didn’t Hack the Democrats
A team of former high-level intelligence computer geeks has concluded that Russia never hacked the Democratic National Committee servers in 2016. This story might come as a surprise to you since the mainstream media is engaged in a total news blackout of any information that damages their insane Russia collusion conspiracy theory.
After every aspect of Hillary Clinton’s bought-and-paid-for “Russian dossier” has been exposed as a complete hoax, we’re now learning that the “Russian hack” was likewise fake news.
William Binney is the former Technical Director of the NSA, and Larry Johnson is a former CIA counterterrorism analyst. I don’t know about you, but they sound like a couple of people who know a lot more about computers than I do.
These two gentlemen have conducted an exhaustive forensic analysis of the DNC emails published by Wikileaks in 2016. They make an extremely compelling case that Russia did not and could not have hacked the emails from the DNC servers.
I’ll try to summarize their findings in language that all of us non-computer geeks can understand.
First, for those who don’t know, information that is transferred from one device or computer to another has a ton of data on it, behind the scenes.
The amount of data that a computer expert can glean from a single email sent from one person to another is actually kind of scary, but most of us never even think about it.
Guys like Binney and Johnson can pick an email apart and practically tell you what you had for lunch the day that you sent it. So, their findings on the hacked DNC emails should be taken seriously.
The media narrative concocted by anti-Trump goons in the DOJ and FBI tells us that the DNC emails were hacked by Russian military specialists – the best high-tech cyberwarriors at Vladimir Putin’s command.
That’s also what Robert Mueller alleged in his indictment of 12 Russians for “hacking” the DNC. They allegedly used a super-technical “spearphishing” technique to penetrate the DNC servers and steal tens of thousands of emails. It’s like something out of a movie, right?
But Binney and Johnson found that almost all of the emails published by Wikileaks have what’s called a FAT file marker on them.
A FAT file transfer system puts a “time stamp” on documents or emails, and the FAT system automatically rounds that time stamp up to the nearest even number: 2, 4, 6, 8 or 0.
About 35,813 of the total 44,053 DNC emails published by Wikileaks have a FAT marker on them.
You’ve probably heard of or used these sophisticated hacking devices that use the FAT filing system. They’re called THUMB DRIVES.
Binney’s forensic analysis found another damning piece of data: the speed at which the emails were transferred off of the DNC servers. That tells us something else that’s pretty interesting.
The DNC emails published by Wikileaks were transferred at 49.1 megabytes per second, from unknown point A to unknown point B. (If the DNC had allowed the FBI to analyze its servers after it was “hacked,” there would be no “unknowns” – we would know exactly when, where and how the emails were transferred off of that server.)
Yet the fastest speed that you can transfer data from New Jersey to anywhere in Europe – including Russia – is only 12 megabytes per second.
So, the 49.1 megabytes-per-second transfer speed on the emails is very telling.
Because there is one way to transfer data that fast. In fact, that’s the exact speed that data travels when you load it onto… a thumb drive.
So, what does this mean? In all likelihood, there was no “Russian hack.” The DNC servers were not penetrated by the Russian military using a “sophisticated spearphishing attack.”
The most likely scenario is that some employee at the DNC – probably a Bernie Bro who was upset about how Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Hillary Clinton had colluded to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders – sat down at a computer at the DNC, logged into the server and downloaded all of the emails onto a thumb drive.
That thumb drive then made its way to Wikileaks and the emails ended up on the internet.
A defense attorney would have a field day with that information if Robert Mueller tried to prosecute one of the Russians he’s accused of “remotely hacking” the DNC servers.
The Trump campaign couldn’t have colluded with the Russians to hack the DNC emails. Because the DNC was never hacked.
