U.S. Says it Has ‘Conclusive’ Proof That Russia Gave Hacked DNC Material to WikiLeaks


U.S. intelligence agencies have found conclusive evidence that Russia provided hacked documents from the Democratic National Committee to WikiLeaks via a third party, Reuters reports.

The news agency reportedly interviewed three U.S. officials with knowledge of the situation, who contend that intelligence agencies obtained the evidence of the Kremlin’s role in the wake of the November election–not before. Months earlier, authorities had concluded that Russia had directed the hacking, but it had not been clear if it had played a bigger role in the release of the leaked information. The report comes as top U.S. intelligence officials head to Capitol Hill on Thursday to testify before a special Senate hearing about the alleged hacking. Despite public statements released by both the CIA and the FBI, President-elect Donald Trump has voiced continued skepticism about the Kremlin’s role in the breach. Party leaders on both sides of the aisle have since called for a probe on the Russian role in the hack, and President Obama has taken heat from within the Democratic Party over failing to respond to the breach before the election. An intelligence report on the issue will be presented to Obama on Thursday and to Trump on Friday. Read more.


  1. Hacking The DNC is quite a different story than hacking the “election”. The American people have a right to know what their elected officials are up to. The people that should be most grateful that the truth about Hillary , the Clinton foundation, and the DNC was finally exposed, are the Bernie Sanders supporters. Their candidate was thrown under the bus by Hillary, Podesta, and the DNC so that Queen Hillary could be annointed. Pesonally I’m grateful to whomever hacked the DNC and released the info . the Clintons, the DNC and the rest of those miscreants were finally exoposed for the scoundrels they are

  2. Does anyone remember the news reports about distorting intelligence reports by Intelligence political appointees.

    Also Clapper destroyed his own testimony. He said if the US were to do the hacking they would use external infrastructure to conceal their involvement which would have problems with international law. So a person here in the US “could” use infrastructure in Russian control to accomplish the hack. We DO know that DHS was the culprit in attempted hacks in the actual election systems.
