Left-Wing Magazine The Nation Report Puts ‘Russian Hack’ DNC Narrative in Freefall



By: Ian Mason
10 Aug 2017

A bombshell report published Wednesday by avowedly liberal news magazine The Nation may have put the last nail in the coffin of the “Russian hack” narrative that has dominated the mainstream media’s coverage for the last year.

Author Patrick Lawrence assembles the findings of months of investigation by forensic computer experts and former NSA officials to conclude, quite categorically, what Breitbart News and other independent media outlets have suggested for nearly a year: there was no hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) by the Russian government or anyone else last summer. An internal leaker is a much more likely source of the confidential internal DNC emails that upended the presidential campaign season when they became public last June.

Some supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders saw in the emails a DNC plot to support eventual nominee Hillary Clinton, dealing a blow to Democratic unity in the runup to the party’s convention.

The Nation, a leading publication of the American left for over a century, may seem an unlikely place for such a thorough refutation of one of the Democratic Party’s most salient talking points. Lawrence, however, is strikingly forthright. Calling the supposed hack and the continual allegations of collusion by President Donald Trump and his associates a “great edifice,” Lawrence points to the central role the “DNC Hack” plays in the “Russiagate” narrative.

Interesting article (though I can't profess to understand all the technical stuff). Not sure why you wouldn't just link directly to it.

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

A couple of things:

1) The Senate (the House hasn't done much) has been having extensive hearings related to Russian interference, including many hearings on Russian hacking. Some of these hearings have been classified. Is it possible evidence of the hacking has been presented in those classified hearings?

2) According to analysis from our IC, hacking attempts began much earlier than 2016.

Has there been any sort of response to the points made in this article?

The parts I have read mention that the meta-data shows a transfer rate that was considered impossible given available internet speed at the time.  The transfer rate, apparently, was similar to that of a standard thumb drive.

This seems to be big news and completely verifiable.  What is the response to this?

Hacking was so April. Now it's money laundering. If it doesn't indict Trump they're not interested.

Curious about that too.  The editor note said the DNC referred to it as nothing more than a conspiracy theory, but if that's the case it should be easily disproven.

Bump.

Is it true that it was physically impossible for the files to be transferred across the street (ignoring the theory that they were actually transferred to Romania) and that it could only have been done with direct access to the network?

Has there been a rebuttal yet?

Have the DNC servers and computers been examined?

Only by those that have been paid by the DNC, as far as I know.

But seriously, why is this not a bigger deal?

Is it because it is a Stu thread?  If I start my own will it get more attention?

Shouldn't it be a big deal if evidence comes out showing that the whole hacking story is total BS?  That a major political party made up a claim (or got it so horribly wrong) and accused another government of doing something like that?

Simple partisanship. It was never about national security or keeping our elections free. It was only about taking down Trump because he had the audacity to actually win.
