One of the most under-reported stories of 2017 is the fact that one of the hackers who attacked the DNC has admitted that he was told to do so by some very powerful people within the Russian government. As the Conservative Daily Post carefully observed at the time, this lends loads of credence to President Donald Trump’s claim that he had nothing to do with anything that Russia nor Putin were doing.
The Tribune News service tells us today again that Konstantin Kozlovsky “says he hacked into the Democratic National Committee computers on the Kremlin’s orders to steal emails released during the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign” and that he left behind a digital footprint as proof of his claims.
This “data signature” may be one of the most important bits of truth to be verified in the whole case thus far! Anti-Trump liberals are certainly on edge as the details emerge.
Kozlovsky gave even more details about his hacking which was “led by the Russian intelligence agency known by its initials FSB.” This new insight shows that the Russian hacker was making computer viruses, many of which were tested “on large Russian companies” that did not know of it, according to MSN News.
It is reported that “oil giant Rosneft” was one such target. After that, the virus was unleashed upon “multinational corporations.” As has been the case all along, there is not even a hint that Trump was aware of any of this. Much of it happened long before he even ran for office!
The hackers used their skill to steal “more than $50 million from Russian bank accounts” with what has become known as the infamous Lark virus. Worried that “his minders” in Russia were going to “turn on him,” he used what is being called a “poison pill.” The wise man inserted “his Russian passport number and the number of his visa to visit the Caribbean island of St. Martin” and inserted it as a .dat file when he was hacking.
The only problem is that there are a limited number of people who have seen the actual data. In light of this revelation, we can expect that this will not be the case for much longer.
“Based on my experience and understanding of professional intelligence operations, the blending of criminal activity with sanctioned intelligence operations is an old page out of the Russian intelligence-services playbook,” opined Leo Taddeo, “chief information security officer for Cyxtera Technologies and a former head of cyber operations in the FBI’s New York office.”
He added, “What the defendant (in Russia) is describing would not be inconsistent with past Russian intelligence operations.”
Kozlovsky says that for the “past seven years he was under the control of Maj. Gen. Dmitry Dokuchayev,” a man who ordered him to hack the DNC. The goal was to interfere with the U.S. election process, something that certainly was achieved. The repercussions are felt to this day.
The Russian is known to have committed a hack on Yahoo in a similar fashion, as well.
Where is the proof which points to Donald Trump in all of this? The left keeps saying that Putin’s goal was to assist Trump but fact after fact and detail after detail show that he wanted to disrupt the order of our elections. He didn’t wish to assist anyone at all, merely to create chaos and unrest.
As these truths become more and more obvious, perhaps the Commander in Chief will be allowed to do his job. So far, the shadows of this hack and ensuing witch hunt have already done enough damage to an apparently innocent leader.
