“It is not at all clear to me just viewing this from the outside, that this hacking into the DNC and the RNC computers was not a false flag operation,” Bolton said. “Let’s remember what FBI Director James Comey said dealing with Hillary’s home-brewed server. He said we found no direct evidence of foreign intelligence service penetration, but given the nature of this we didn’t expect to, meaning a really sophisticated foreign intelligence service would not leave any cyber fingerprints, and yet people say they did leave fingerprints in the hacks regarding our election.”
Later, when asked who would have perpetrated the false flag operation, Bolton said, “I believe that intelligence has been politicized in the Obama administration to a very significant degree.”
There is no evidence that the Obama administration had anything to do with the DNC hacking.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime has used its influence to promote far right candidates and causes in nations like Germany, France, and the United Kingdom, as The Atlantic reported in October.
Similarly, if Russia was indeed responsible for the hacking and went after both the DNC and RNC accounts, it casts a great deal of doubt on the intellectual honesty of self-described whistleblower Julian Assange, who may very well have had access to documents that could have embarrassed Trump as well as Clinton but chose only to release those related to the Democratic nominee.
