Former British Ambassador: U.S. Gov’t Insiders Leaked John Podesta’s Emails To WikiLeaks
According to former British ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig Murray, the now infamous Podesta and Democratic National Committee emails were not leaked by Russian hackers, but by a Washington insider.
In an exclusive interview with Sputnik, Mr. Murray said: “The source of these emails and leaks has nothing to do with Russia at all. I discovered what the source was when I attended the Sam Adam’s whistleblower award in Washington. The source of these emails comes from within official circles in Washington DC. You should look to Washington not to Moscow.”
When asked about whether or not WikiLeaks have ever published information at the behest of Moscow, Mr. Murray said:
“WikiLeaks has never published any material received from the Russian government or from any proxy of the Russian government. It’s simply a completely untrue claim designed to divert attention from the content of the material.” The Podesta leaks are a trove of emails that have been dropped almost daily by WikiLeaks and consist of emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta. The leaks, along with the DNC troves, have provided insight into the inner workings of the Clinton campaign, leaving the presidential nominee red-faced. Clinton’s allies have accused the whistleblowing website and Russia of working in cahoots with the Trump campaign.
The role of WikiLeaks as a thorn in the side of the US government dates further back than the Podesta and DNC leaks.
