But we have learned that NSA had the capabilities to leave Russian footprints that placed the blame on Russia and away from our own government. So was Putin and the Russians trying to alter the outcome of our Presidential election or was Obama and our government trying to alter our Presidential election while blaming it on Russia?
When somebody like this, a 25-year-old anti-Trumper, anti-American, pro-Bernie Sanders can get hold of this kind of stuff, why worry about the Russians hacking anything? We’ve got our own domestic people hacking and leaking. And now leaking has become politicized. Leaking is a crime. And we’re eliminating the criminal aspect to it because the leaks the left likes happen to be leaks against Trump. So we’re gonna eliminate the fact that there’s criminal activity going on here and we are going to start celebrating leakers as whistleblowers.
And I will predict to you that that’s the route this babe and her lawyer take, because she is in direct violation of a federal statute written regarding trafficking in classified data and documents. She has been charged under the same statute that James Comey gave Hillary Clinton a pass on. In fact, if you want the numbers, it’s Title 18, United States Code Section 793(f) that Hillary Clinton was investigated under, having violated. Comey found that she did violate it.
However, Comey said he couldn’t find any intent, and therefore no reasonable prosecutor would ever bring such charges. This woman, Reality Winner, was arrested under Title 18 United States Code, same title, section 793(e). Hillary’s was 793(f). This is 793(e). Here’s how it reads.
“Whoever having unauthorized possession of, access to, or control over any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, or note relating to the national defense or information relating to the national defense which information the possessor has reason to believe could be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation willfully communicates, delivers, transmits, delivers,” blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
It goes on to list the crimes involved here. It’s exactly what she’s been arrested, the same provision Hillary Clinton was arrested under. Ah, ah, ah, sorry. Not arrested. The same statute that Hillary was exonerated against this woman has been arrested and will be charged.
Now, the U.K. Guardian reports that she’s a former Air Force linguist. She speaks three different languages spoken in Afghanistan: Pashto, Farsi, and Dari. So it appears that she got her security clearance through the Air Force as a linguist and then after leaving the Air Force took a job that required clearance in mid-February of this year. She, having admitted what she did, would seem to have no defense. It’s an open-and-shut case. She stole and disseminated classified data.
Now, The Intercept story — this is the Glenn Greenwald website that she mailed this document to — The Intercept story is about how the Russians were spear phishing a company that builds election software. Now, you’ve seen all day today the left is in an orgasmic fit because they think this is the smoking gun, that this woman has found the document and made it public that shows the Russians were indeed try to tamper with votes, the actual voting process for which there is zero evidence. And this document provides zero evidence.
Once again, it’s a phishing campaign. It’s not a hack. That’s putting a fine point on it. What the document says is that the Russians, or if anybody, whoever was behind this, was trying to find their way into voter registration rolls, if anything, that is what was going on. They were not tampering with votes that had been cast. In fact, I think all of this is smoke and mirrors. With so much fake news out there, with so many things in the news that have been provably, demonstrably inaccurate and wrong, this is just too convenient.
But even if it is true, the only thing the document alleges is that the Russians were attempting to spear phish certain areas of voter registration roles, not the counting or tabulating or casting of votes in any way, shape, manner, or form. But I even get antsy even acknowledging that as a possibility, because I think it’s all just too pat. Where’s this stuff been?
Look, there are plenty of people that have access to this document that hate Trump that could have gotten this out way before today, way before yesterday, whenever this happened. And they could have gotten it out to a website far more mainstream than something called The Intercept.
But this keeps all the big guys’ fingerprints off of it so we can’t question their motives. All they do is end up reporting this, dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s to add so-called credibility to it. I’m suspicious and dubious of all of this.
