Still NO EVIDENCE that Russian Directed Hacking of Election


Recommended Posts

The United States government has yet to produce evidence tying the Russian government to a purported hacking operation meant to undermine the 2016 presidential election. This is despite reports from journalists stating the contrary.

 

Bloomberg reported Thursday, “Prodded to produce evidence by Russia, which has denied a role in hacking — and by an openly skeptical President-elect Donald Trump — the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security did so Thursday.” Other outlets such as PC Magazine and the International Business Times also interpreted the Joint Analysis Report (JAR) issued by the DHS and FBI as evidence tying Russia to a hacking operation.

 

The report, however, is devoid of evidence linking Russia to hackings of Democratic Party institutions and individuals. The report broadly describes how “two separate Russian espionage groups” were involved in the “the intrusion into a U.S. political party.” But there’s no specific details explaining the attribution of Russia as being behind the hacking. Eight pages of the report consist of information meant to help network administrators try and identify possible intrusions, prevent them, and what to do if they identify code the U.S. government has identified as Russian.

 

After the release of the JAR, the Burlington Electric Department in Vermont identified malware from the report on a laptop not attached to the electrical grid. This has been reported by both The Burlington Free Press and The Washington Post as a Russian hacking operation. But cybersecurity expert Jeffrey Carr has said that “it’s almost impossible to confirm attribution in cyberspace.”

 

An article in the December issue of Harper’s points out: “A tool developed by the Chinese to attack Google in 2009 was later reused by the so-called Equation Group against officials of the Afghan government. So the Afghans, had they investigated, might have assumed they were being hacked by the Chinese. Thanks to a leak by Edward Snowden, however, it now appears that the Equation Group was in fact the NSA.”

 

Bill Binney, a 30-plus year veteran of the NSA, told Harper’s, “Saying it does not make it true. They have to provide proof. . . . So let’s see the evidence.”

 

President Barack Obama ordered in early December that a “full review” of Russia’s alleged involvement in hacking operations be released before the end of his term. The New York Times, however, reports that this report will likely be classified, so it is unknown if the federal government will ever release evidence to the public to back up their implications.

Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart

—you know, if you're a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if,

like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I'm one of the

smartest people anywhere in the world—it's true!—but when you're a

conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that's

why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went

there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my

like credentials all the time, because we're a little disadvantaged—but

you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would

have been so easy, and it's not as important as these lives are (nuclear

is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the

power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of

what's going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?),

but when you look at what's going on with the four prisoners—now it

used to be three, now it's four—but when it was three and even now, I

would have said it's all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because,

you know, they don't, they haven't figured that the women are smarter

right now than the men, so, you know, it's gonna take them about

another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.

 

Transcribed from this video, if anyone is interested in deciphering in real time. The video is from a year ago. Why are people just now figuring out he’s not all there?

Look benson, we KNOW that you are a MORON, but at the very least, you COULD attempt to discuss the premise of the post.

 

Otherwise, move along to someone else who might actually give a shit.

 

Your garbage is stinking up the place.

 

A lot.

he has posted this same thing about 5 times this morning already. He has nothing and relies on others to make a talking point for him!

I would have made last word, "allegations".
