Julian Assange has consistently said that Russia isn’t responsible for the DNC and Podesta emails that Wikileaks published, but the rhetoric of ‘Russian Hacking’ persists.
President Obama keeps pushing the narrative of ‘Russian hacking’ influencing the election.
Remember when Obama said that he told Putin to ‘cut it out‘ with the election hacking? He said that he spoke to Putin in September, but by then ‘the leaks through WikiLeaks had already occurred‘. Obama also said that he was successful and that ‘in fact we did not see further tampering of the election process.‘
Assange has firmly denounced the leaks were from the Russian government.
If he was successful and there was no further Russian involvement, what’s the purpose of the Cold War-style rhetoric and the limp-wristed saber-rattling?
In Assange’s first sit-down interview, the WikiLeaks founder reiterates to Sean Hannity that the Russian Government was not the source of the DNC and Podesta emails.
He told Hannity ‘with a thousand per cent’ confidence that the Russian government was not responsible for emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman.
Those emails were published online by WikiLeaks in the lead-up to the November 8 vote.
Democrats claimed the hacks were a deliberate attempt to undermine Mrs Clinton’s campaign and boost support for Donald Trump.
Last week as the row intensified, Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats from the country. They arrived back in Russia on Monday morning.
Moscow denies any involvement in election-related hacking…
…Speaking to Hannity about the WikiLeaks revelations, he said: ‘We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party.
‘Our publications had wide uptake by the American people, they’re all true. But that’s not the allegation that’s being presented by the Obama White House.
‘So, why such a dramatic response? Well, the reason is obvious. They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House.
‘They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President.’

Could it be because Obama sees his ‘legacy’ being wiped out by the Trump Administration and is acting like a little brat?
He’s ‘trashing the place’ after his two terms and deliberately leaving a political mess for Trump as he takes office.
In his last few days in office, Obama is:
– playing a game he doesn’t even understand the rules for with Russia
– alienating the one successful democracy, and close ally in the Middle-East — Israel
– dropping thousands of regulations into place and confiscating land to keep his ‘environmentalist’ street-cred
– being a douche
Is this all just to delegitimize Trump?
