“Barr had put forward a ‘distorted...misleading’ account of the Mueller report findings...’These circumstances generally, and AG Barr’s lack of candor specifically, call into question Attorney General Barr’s credibility,’” Judge Walton wrote.

New details from the Justice Department’s inquiry into Russian influence over the 2016 election released on Friday underscored President Trump’s keen interest in weaponizing information stolen by the Russians and funneled to WikiLeaks for use against his 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton.

The new disclosures also emphasized prosecutors’ doubts about whether Mr. Trump told them the truth when he was questioned during the two-year investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, into Russian interference in that election and whether the Trump campaign conspired with Moscow to influence its outcome.

The Trump campaign tried to coordinate with Wikileaks through Roger Stone; -- A jury convicted Stone of lying to Congress to protect the President; -- The President now commutes Stone's sentence, sparing him from prison. Corruption and abuse of power.

NDPP and his little cult mates, such as Aaron Mate, Michael Tracey and Jimmy Dore are living in a fantasy world in which the oligarchs who control the U.S. tried and failed to stop Trump from becoming president. If they had seriously wanted to stop him, he would not be president now.

They might have found a way to make him drop out. They might have arranged his accidental death. They would never, ever have tried to stop him in such an indirect and convoluted way. To say that they arranged a fake hack by Russian intelligence agencies in order to smear Trump by association is utterly ludicrous. It could only be believed by the most motivated of thinkers, suffering from massive confirmation bias.

By late 2016, the FBI had evidence that the Russians had signaled to a Trump campaign adviser that they could assist the campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to the Democratic candidate. And the FBI knew that the Russians had done just that: Beginning in July 2016, WikiLeaks released emails stolen by Russian military intelligence officers from the Clinton campaign. Other online personas using false names — fronts for Russian military intelligence — also released Clinton campaign emails.

More from Mueller:

A jury later determined he lied repeatedly to members of Congress. He lied about the identity of his intermediary to WikiLeaks. He lied about the existence of written communications with his intermediary. He lied by denying he had communicated with the Trump campaign about the timing of WikiLeaks’ releases. He in fact updated senior campaign officials repeatedly about WikiLeaks.

Why did he need tacit assurances when they broke in, stole and disseminated the DNC's emails.  As Mueller found.

josh

A porn star was paid to keep silent about her alleged dalliance years earlier with a presidential candidate, which a judge has agreed was an illegal violation of campaign finance laws.

The private emails of Democrats were stolen and published, which prosecutors have said was an illegal intervention into the U.S. political system by foreign operatives.

The two crimes were undertaken to help Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016. They led to the indictment or conviction of 13 men, including Trump’s personal attorney.

But for nearly four years, Trump has bullied, browbeaten and litigated his way out of efforts to pin down whether he had involvement in or knowledge of the illicit actions that were undertaken to help his presidential campaign.

Craig Murray: Cold Wars and Profit

https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2020/07/cold-wars-and-profit/

"...You will recall the near incredible fact that even through the Mueller investigation, the FBI never inspected the DNC servers themselves but simply relied on a technical report from Crowdstrike, the Clinton related IT security consultant for the DNC. And now know for sure that Crowdstrike had been peddling fake news for Hillary. In fact, Crowdstrike had no record of any internet hack at all. There was no evidence of the email material being exported over the internet.

Remember the entire 'Russian hacking' story was based ONLY on Crowdstrike's say so. There is literally no other evidence of Russian involvement in the DNC emails, which is unsurprising as I have been telling you for 4 years from my own direct sources that Russia was not involved. Yet finally declassified Congressional testimony revealed that Shawn Henry stated on oath that 'we did not have concrete evidence' and 'there's circumstantial evidence but no evidence they were actually exfiltrated.' So arguably the biggest news story of the past 4 years, the claim that Putin effectively interfered to have Trump elected, turns out to be utterly baseless.

Has the mainstream media, acting on security service behest, done anyting to row back from the false impression it created? No it has doubled down. The 'Russian hacking' theme keeps being brought back related to whatever is the big issue of the day - Brexit?  Russian hacking. UK General election 2019?  Russian hacking. COVID-19 vaccine?  Russian hacking. Finally, do not forget that there is a massive armaments industry and a massive security industry all dependent on having an 'enemy'. Powerful people make money from this Russophobia. Expect much more of it. There is money in a Cold War."

Michael Moriarity Michael Moriarity's picture

So, what does Murray propose was the actual sequence of events? It sounds to me as if he is saying that the Clinton campaign, at a time when they had a wide lead in the polls, and were expected by everyone to win (even Trump's campaign), decided that they needed a little extra excitement, so they faked a Russian hack, and leaked their own embarrassing emails. That sure sounds convincing.

NDPP

I've posted exhaustively already on all of this and am not inclined to waste my time searching the threads for those who will never reconsider their own version borrowed from the DNC, NYT, WaPo, Guardian etc. Go search yourself if you've a mind.  As for Craig Murray, the former British ambassador says he flew to Washington in September 2016 where he received a thumb drive containing the emails from one of the sources allegedly disgusted at the conduct of the Clinton campaign, the Clinton foundation and the manner in which the primary was manipulated against Bernie Sanders. Murray says the source had legal access to the information. Murray conveyed the leaked emails to WikiLeaks and the rest is history. It was always a leak never a hack and never a Russian hack. Bravos to Murray, WikiLeaks and all who continue to expose the dark hidden truths many of us refuse to admit or apparently prefer not to know.

Michael Moriarity Michael Moriarity's picture

So, then, after the data was leaked to Murray in September (and I'd really like to cross-examine him about this tale) the Clintonites decided to pretend the leak was actually a hack that happened nearly 6 months earlier. Do I have that right?

Michael Moriarity Michael Moriarity's picture

I should also note that the Washington Post reported on the DNC hack on June 14. Even if it was a lie, it was impressive that they could know at that time what would happen the following September. Bruce Schneier wrote about it the same day, and several times later that summer. He thought the Crowdstrike forensic analysis, which was already available, was well done, especially since it was all written more than 3 months before the leak supposedly happened. It seems Murray was a bit late to the party.

That is most likely the case although it still relies on US intelligence agencies, something I consider an oxymoron, for the information. However the US response is like a rapist complaining that someone grabbed their ass on a subway in an attempt to distract from the serial rapes they have committed around the globe.

I have followed Craig Murray for some time he and he may get things wrong but I doubt he would deliberately lie.

It should cause pause that he could have been interrogated under oath when he offered in writing to testify before the massive Mueller inquiry but received no response as if irrelevant,  despite the fact that a CIA contracted spy agency was "obsessed" with everything he did:

Murray is no techy, relying a lot  in the previously posted comment on Bill Binney, who has been saying much the same tthing for some time. Note that before Russiagate Scheneer had praised the Russia hacking dissenters Binney and Ray McGovern for knowing what they are talking about. As far as I know, Scheneer hasn't commented on or offered a response to the specific claims of Binney, though he regularly posts on Russiagate reportage from the mainstream as if it was impartial reporting. I think Scheneer is smart, well intentioned and often has good observations, but is not especially astute when it comes to the propaganda soup we all swim in.

It's certainly possible that Russia gained access to the server and I wouldn't be much surprised if they tried to thwart the election of the candidate with the hideous record as a bellicose hawk,  it would likely seem to them to be in their interest.  But given the probable shoddy security of the DNC servers which they never gave access to the FBI, even under the Obama administration,  to examine the alleged crime scene. This is something basic but never officially pursued:

Direct access to the actual computers is the first requirement — the more so when an intrusion is termed “an act of war” and blamed on a nuclear-armed foreign government (the words used by the late Sen. John McCain and other senior officials). In testimony to the House Intelligence Committee in March 2017, former FBI Director James Comey admitted that he did not insist on physical access to the DNC computers even though, as he conceded, “best practices” dictate direct access....

https://consortiumnews.com/2019/03/13/vips-muellers-forensics-free-findi...

In short, the contrary arguments could both be true:
The DNC servers could have been compromised by persons and/or states, including Russia.
The data Wikileaks actually received could have been downloaded from a server by a disgruntled employee.  
 
Objectively, how important is it where Wikileaks got the incriminating information?  Unlike many unofficial "leaks" sown from security agencies, the information was never credibly claimed to be falsified. Any genuinely free press unsullied by partisanship or state subservience would publish the unpleasant publicly relevant facts of the exchanges regardless of source. That is what a genuine free press would do, and the content of the information would be foremost, not the messenger, whether it was provided by the Angel of Truth or Satan Himself (ie. Putin).

How many who are outraged at the publication of this material would also be outraged at a US spy agency that provided indisputable reportage of sordid internal political communications within Russia? The question is rhetorical because we all know the answer. The question itself would bring outrage or mockery because who can compare the actions of the "good guys" to those of the "bad guys".  That is the level of cohesive tribal irrationalism that has not evolved since the emergence of humans.

I agree with your last observation that both versions could be true. Regarding the question of physical access to "the server", this is a complete canard. It is dismantled here by Kevin Poulsen.

tldr is that it was a network of "140 servers, most of them cloud-based". Cloud based means that they are virtual machines, running in the vast datacenters of Amazon, Google or Microsoft. No one knows or cares which of tens of thousands of rack-mounted servers actually hosts the virtual servers the DNC was using.

If that isn't enough for you, the gist:

Kevin Poulsen wrote:

The “server” Trump is obsessed with is actually 140 servers, most of them cloud-based, which the DNC was forced to decommission in June 2016 while trying to rid its network of the Russian GRU officers working to help Trump win the election, according to the figures in the DNC’s civil lawsuit against Russia and the Trump campaign. Another 180 desktop and laptop computers were also swapped out as the DNC raced to get the organization back on its feet and free of Putin’s surveillance.

But despite Trump’s repeated feverish claims to the contrary, no machines are actually missing.

It’s true that the FBI doesn’t have the DNC’s computer hardware. Agents didn’t sweep into DNC headquarters, load up all the equipment and leave Democrats standing stunned beside empty desks and dangling cables. There’s a reason for that, and it has nothing to do with a deep state conspiracy to frame Putin.

Trump and his allies are capitalizing on a basic misapprehension of how computer intrusion investigations work. Investigating a virtual crime isn’t a like investigating a murder. The Russians didn’t leave DNA evidence on the server racks and fingerprints on the keyboards. All the evidence of their comings and goings was on the computer hard drives, and in memory, and in the ephemeral network transmissions to and from the GRU’s command-and-control servers.

When cyber investigators respond to an incident, they capture that evidence in a process called “imaging.” They make an exact byte-for-byte copy of the hard drives. They do the same for the machine’s memory, capturing evidence that would otherwise be lost at the next reboot, and they monitor and store the traffic passing through the victim’s network. This has been standard procedure in computer intrusion investigations for decades. The images, not the computer’s hardware, provide the evidence.

Both the DNC and the security firm Crowdstrike, hired to respond to the breach, have said repeatedly over the years that they gave the FBI a copy of all the DNC images back in 2016. The DNC reiterated that Monday in a statement to the Daily Beast.

Greetings From the New Cold War: Russiagate, Nazis and the CIA

And Russian interference on behalf of Trump is continuing in this election:

His Friday statement acknowledged that “Russia is using a range of measures to primarily denigrate former Vice President Biden” and that “some Kremlin-linked actors are also seeking to boost President Trump’s candidacy on social media and Russian television.” For example, he noted that “pro-Russia Ukrainian parliamentarian Andriy Derkach is spreading claims about corruption — including through publicizing leaked phone calls — to undermine former Vice President Biden’s candidacy and the Democratic Party.” Left unstated is that Derkach has met repeatedly with Trump’s lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, as part of this effort, and that Sen. Ron Johnson (R.-Wis.) is now launching a politically motivated investigation based on the Russian propaganda against Biden.

The Spies Who Hijacked America

https://taibbi.substack.com/p/the-spies-who-hijacked-america

"As a doctoral candidate at Cambridge working under 'FBI Informant' Stefen Halper, I had a front-row seat for Russiagate. The Cambridge Four, and their media and political enablers, did a miraculous job in pushing fake Trump-Russia conspiracy stories that undermined America's democratically elected government and sparked investigations still ripping us apart today. Perhaps nothing better illustrates the Cambridge Four's role - or is more urgent given Flynn's legal hearing August 11 - than the takedown of Trump's national security advisor.

In my work after 911 I saw how national security powers combined with unaccountable government officials could do things George Orwell never dreamed over. Russia and foreign interference in elections should be taken seriously. Yet pushing the threat of Russia - now a country with a GDP the CIA publicly estimates is far closer to Indonesia's than our own - like we are in the middle of a 1950's Red Scare push by Senator Joseph McCarthy, should not be used as a political weapon to cover up or excuse our own government officials' abuses. If Biden, Trump or members of their teams  grossly abused national security powers to upend democracy, we deserve to know as soon as possible before the election. America can't afford another government and media strike out, after 4 years of too much denial, incompetence and cover up."
