Wikileaks Continues To Claim That The Russians Are Not The Source Of Their DNC/Podesta Email Leaks
RT: Assange: WikiLeaks did not receive Clinton emails from Russian govt
In a John Pilger Special, to be exclusively broadcast by RT on Saturday courtesy of Dartmouth Films, whistleblower Julian Assange categorically denied that the troves of US Democratic Party and Clinton work and staff emails released this year have come from the Russian government.
“The Clinton camp has been able to project a neo-McCarthyist hysteria that Russia is responsible for everything. Hillary Clinton has stated multiple times, falsely, that 17 US intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications. That’s false – we can say that the Russian government is not the source,” Assange told the veteran Australian broadcaster as part of a 25-minute John Pilger Special, courtesy of Dartmouth Films.

WNU Editor: I learned a long time ago to be very sceptical on anything that comes from Russian media .... especially on issues like this one. And while I do not have any inside information and/or intelligence on who leaked all of this information to Wikileaks, my gut is telling me that Russian media may be actually right on this one .... that whoever leaked this information has a "major beef" against the Clintons, and that it is someone on the inside in Washington .... maybe within the DNC itself. Will we eventually know who the leaker is .... probably not. But the information that this leaker has provided has given us an insight on how the elites in Washington work, and it is not a pretty sight.
