"After Hillary Clinton was defeated in the US presidential election the relevant powers launched a campaign to delegitimize the President-elect Donald Trump. But there is a problem. There is no real evidence that a 'hack' ever happened. There is no evidence Russia is involved.

None at all."

RT News - Russian Hacking: Is That A Fact? (and vid)

http://rt.com/shows/news/372918-rtnews-january-07-17msk

"A newly-released US intelligence report claims Russia interfered in last year's US election in a state-ordered campaign - but the report's findings are based on 'level of confidence' not fact.

'US government's, declassified "Russian hacking" report has the curious disclaimer that it is based on watching TV and reading Tweets.' - @WikiLeaks

No need to the US intelligence has declared that it can tell what Russia is doing by reading its propaganda. Who needs hard facts Putin and his ministers publicly said they liked Trump better than Clinton so that has been taken as proof that the hacking was directed from the top. 

But of course some people actually believe that Putin and the Russian States goal is to undermine the US led democratic order. All true believers know that Russian democracy is not the same as our democracy or the US democracy. We have REAL democracy while everyone who opposes the US led order is undemocratic and evil. 

All hail the Kremlin they have obviously achieved the height of propaganda since the US intelligence agencies claim that RT and Sputnik actually played a role in Trump's election.  Not the CNN and Fox etc etc who covered him relentlessly during the primaries while totally ignoring the Sanders campaign.  I am astounded at the influence of RT and Sputnik and am impressed that their presence in the American TV market made the difference in Trump's election. 

I wonder why this station is so ineffective in comparison?

'Clinton Email Leak Done By Insider Not Russia' - Frmr UK Diplomat & Whistleblower

"I think it's hilarious...I thought it [US 'intelligence report on Russian hacking] must be a joke. It is an astonishing piece of work that contains no evidence whatsoever. Of course the reason it contains no evidence whatsoever is there is no evidence - because the assertions it is making are factually untrue. So that there couldn't be evidence..."

Quote:

So the Russian don’t like Hillary and they say so.  What’s the big deal?  Hillary was the most incompetent and russophobic Secretary of State in US history and had she been elected the risks of thermonuclear war would have been immense.  Does it really surprise anybody that most Russians (including yours truly) absolutely hate, despise and fear her?  What is Trump suppose to do now: call Putin and tell him “Vladimir, please tell RT not to criticize US public figures?!”.  And what was Trump supposed to answer if Putin replied to him “Donald, the USA has been deeply interfering inside Russia, you ran our country in the 1990s, you rigged out elections, your snipers shot our people from the roof of your embassy in 1993 and your media has been demonizing me personally for years now – and you want me to tone down RT?!”.

I really liked this analyse.  I was gobsmacked when I read the "intelligence" report and realized they were complaining that RT was covering the election and being biased against Clinton. Was any media in the US unbiased during the election?

There was no reason for wikileaks to comment on it, and to comment on it in such a definiitive manner.  The fact that it did speaks volumes.

WikiLeaks has every reason to comment on it. They are truth tellers. Their enemies are lie-tellers.  Proven. Repeatedly.

Yes, Trump is quite familiar with leaks.

Don't forget taking a leak. There's that too.

Though this is not the only time Assange has complained about other people doing the thing he assumes only he has the authority to:

Assange Blasts Soros and USAID Over Russian Propaganda Campaign (and vid)

https://www.rt.com/viral/373253-assange-reddit-soros-usaid/

"Assange detailed the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project's role in the Putin framing and how the Maryland-based organization is funded by George Soros and USAID and 'focuses exclusively on negative stories about Russia and former Soviet states.'

Assange drew comparisons between those narratives and WikiLeaks in relation to trust. 'One is funded by a government attacking another government,' while WikiLeaks is 'funded by readers' and has a track record of publishing accurate information.

When asked about the Snowden documents and the way in which they were released by journalists, Assange said 'more than 97% of the Snowden docs have been censored, as a result."

Someone should tell Wikileaks the U.S. election is long over. Maybe Putin can pass the word to them.

Actually, if the allegations of sexual assualt didn't do it, well, the latest buzz about Assange's suspect relationship with neo-con nationalist forces in Russia is taking the shine off his reputation with progressives around the world. 

Assange faces questions on links to Russia from Reddit users: 

“For someone who claims they’re all about transparency and openness, your answers here really don’t live up to those lofty ideals. Terse one-word answers, ignoring really pertinent questions, what exactly is the point of this AMA?”
