BOMBSHELL: NSA Experts Say DNC

Quote:
The Nation‘s Patrick Lawrence wrote a lengthy review of the findings made by various computer experts formerly with the NSA. Published this week, the left-wing magazine’s report notes two bases for their conclusion: (1) hard science shows that a remote hack of the DNC servers resulting in the breach that actually occurred would have been technologically impossible; (2) forensic review of the initial Guccifer 2.0 documents proves that they are poorly-disguised cut-and-paste jobs–forgeries–intended to finger Russia.
The data transfer rate from the alleged hack of the DNC server was 22.7 megabytes per second. No ISP has that kind of speed, the top speed is around 16 megabytes per second.
However, that speed can be achieved when using a thumb drive.

Even if that report is true, Russia is not off the hook. They hacked the state election offices and one company that makes voting machines. No one disputes that.

Yawn. Its also not uncommon for someone hacking things like this to copy it to some other location before beginning the download in order to avoid anyone asking why something got so slow.

There would have to be a lot more evidence to make this conclusive I think. The devil is in the details. And the details arent there as they dont have the servers in question. Making this claim especially suspicious.

You're agreeing that it was an inside job then, right?

I was just reading about this. IF this is all found to be true...

A New Report Raises Big Questions About Last Year’s DNC Hack

Quote:
On the evening of July 5, 2016, 1,976 megabytes of data were downloaded from the DNC’s server. The operation took 87 seconds. This yields a transfer rate of 22.7 megabytes per second.
Quote:
Time stamps in the metadata provide further evidence of what happened on July 5. The stamps recording the download indicate that it occurred in the Eastern Daylight Time Zone at approximately 6:45 pm. This confirms that the person entering the DNC system was working somewhere on the East Coast of the United States. In theory the operation could have been conducted from Bangor or Miami or anywhere in between—but not Russia, Romania, or anywhere else outside the EDT zone.
If one chooses to read the article I posted I hope you click on all the links contained therein.
Here's just one quote from one link. It's a letter to the President.
Intel Vets Challenge 'Russia Hack' Evidence

Quote:
Mr. President, ... They found that the purported “hack” of the DNC by Guccifer 2.0 was not a hack, by Russia or anyone else. Rather it originated with a copy (onto an external storage device – a thumb drive, for example) by an insider. The data was leaked to implicate Russia. We do not know who or what the murky Guccifer 2.0 is. You may wish to ask the FBI.

They were looking for someone with an industrial metal shredder, and the FBI didn't have one. So why turn it over?

Intel Vets Challenge 'Russia Hack' Evidence
Interesting..but I'll wait for a more reputable source..Right-wing sites have an ax to grind..and can no more be trusted to tell the truth than Trump.


I got to admit though..that the whole Russian thing has passed me by--so what if they did..and so what if they did not.


I appreciate the issue in that it was a wedge into Trump's possible financial corruption--and it cannot be denied..the Russians are in the picture. Just how it all fits..is why we have an investigator. After all, Ken Starr did not start out looking for sexual misconduct by Clinton, now did he?

No one forced Trump Jr. to meet with the Russian lawyer--he was looking for dirt. Not a crime..afaik--but indicative of the mindset of Trump's inner circle.

We shall see...gotta admit..it's entertaining as all get out.

So this has to mean that Trump did it himself. He must have hacked the DNC himself. I wonder if Rachel Maddow will do a special to expose how Trump did this. It will be 10x more explosive than the bombshell tax returns she destroyed Trump with.

IMPEACH TRUMP!!!!
