BOMBSHELL: Wikileaks Reveals CIA Could Fake Digital Forensic Fingerprints to Make Hacking Look Like Russians Did It

 Public Domain

A lot of information on CIA tactics was dumped by Wikileaks and the total impact of the dump will take weeks to unpack.
  But, I have a theory that the reason why Wiki did it was because the CIA was looking to set up President Trump with planted information to make it look like Trump and Russia was working together.  
Wired reports never accuse Wikileaks of getting its timing wrong. Last fall, the group perfectly paced its steady drip of John Podesta’s emails to undermine Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. Now, as the capital thrums with chaos, it has unleashed a cloud of confusion that makes it hard for experts to discern the facts and easy for non-experts to see whatever they want.

Days after President Trump baselessly tweeted that the Obama administration had wiretapped Trump Tower, a theory that first emerged on conservative talk radio, Wikileaks released its latest treasure trove revealing just how extensive the Obama administration’s surveillance capacity was. One nugget of particular interest to Trump supporters: a section titled “Umbrage” that details the CIA’s ability to impersonate cyber-attack techniques used by Russia and other nation states. In theory, that means the agency could have faked digital forensic fingerprints to make the Russians look guilty of hacking the Democratic National Committee.

  1. Story did not originate in talk radio. It was first reported in, of all places, the NYT.
