I’m not a big Ben Swann fan. He’s a rabid libertarian, but he is pretty thorough, and he’s got Kiriakou and Thomas Drake to comment on why this new “whistleblower” is different.

 

Is the Trump Whistleblower Really a Whistleblower?

EXCLUSIVE: Ex-British ambassador who is now a WikiLeaks operative claims Russia did NOT provide Clinton emails – they were handed over to him at a D.C. park by an intermediary for ‘disgusted’ Democratic whistleblowers

UK Daily Mail:

  • Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and associate of Julian Assange, told the Dailymail.com  he flew to Washington, D.C. for emails

  • He claims he had a clandestine hand-off in a wooded area near American University with one of the email sources 

  • The leakers’ motivation was ‘disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the  ’tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders’

  • Murray says: ‘The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks’

  • ‘Regardless of whether the Russians hacked into the DNC, the documents Wikileaks published did not come from that,’ Murray insists

Even the FBI calls the CIA’s claims “fuzzy,” revealing more that this is theater, like Weapons of Mass Destruction before…

The FBI official’s remarks to the lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee were, in comparison, “fuzzy” and “ambiguous,” suggesting to those in the room that the bureau and the agency weren’t on the same page, the official said.

…“There is no clear evidence — even now,” said Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the panel’s chairman. “There’s a lot of innuendo, lots of circumstantial evidence, that’s it.”

…“It was shocking to hold these [CIA] statements made about Russian intentions and activities, and to hear this guy basically saying nothing with certainty and allowing that all was possible,” said an official who attended the briefing.
