It was already reported by William Binney that the DNC hacks were likely the result of a disgruntled intelligence worker.
Yes, he really used those words.
Bolton goes on to say that he believes “the intelligence community has been politicized in the Obama administration to a very significant degree.”
In October, we explained the motivations for blaming the Russians for the DNC hacks, teaching the following in light of Biden’s explanation for a CIA led cyber-attack against the Russians in ‘just’ retaliation:
“Here are a few items of pertinence respecting the DNC hack. First of all Putin has denied the hacking allegations (though he heartily finds the hack to have been for the public’s good) and secondly, NSA whistleblower William Binney has countered the claim that the Russians were responsible when reported instead that the hack was the work of a “disgruntled intelligence worker” (though this claim is just as tenuous as the counter). But what did the DNC hack expose anyway? Oh yeah, that Sanders was going to lose the Democratic Party’s nomination from the get-go.
So either way you look at it, the notion that we should play the tit for tat game with Russia because of the DNC hack is ludicrous, childish, and insensitive to notions of justice and democracy. Would you punish someone for exposing the flaws of our “democracy”? It is in view of the above that I find the CIA development of cyber-attack against Russia unjustified.”
