Evidence Points to Massive Conspiracy
New files first posted by Ivan Pentchoukov of The Epoch Times show that when the US government formally accused Russia of hacking the DNC, they were lacking crucial files from Crowdstrike.
As noted below, one week before the official attribution, FBI officials were scrambling to get basic documents regarding the hack.
This immediately raises the specter of a massive conspiracy. The US government did not use Crowdstrike reports or files to attribute the attacks.
Who did they turn to?
Working with Margot Cleveland over the past 6 months, we have obtained thousands of pages of documents that may provide an answer.
In June 2020, Manos Antonakakis wrote this to representatives at Georgia Tech:
If his work was retroactive, or a simple analysis re-confirming other data and evidence, why would he be so concerned about being tied to the attribution analysis? Remember, his initial involvement appeared to be related to the fake Alfa server allegation.
Additional FOIA’s caught an email from David Dagon’s lawyer:
This list touches on every piece of the DNC hack. They analyzed Fancy Bear, Cozy Bear, domains, crypto transactions (which may relate to certain purchases alleged to be done by the GRU to support their hacking operations) and a whitepaper on the DNC hack attribution.
Another FOIA showed that Manos alleged in July 2021 that he was tasked by DARPA to look at the DNC hack (and not as a proof-of-concept or retroactive analysis):
Here is the question.
Did our government attribute the hack based on their work?
Is that why Manos was asking for protection?
The fact that our government did not have evidence from Crowdstrike should send a shockwave through Washington DC. If they relied on operatives working at the behest of the Clinton campaign and Rodney Joffe, there will be no shortage of calls for a massive number of prosecutions.
Here is a link to one copy of the Rhamnousia chat logs previously obtained. Recall that Dagon (fully immunized) flagged it as relevant for John Durham, and yet, amid the redactions all that appears to be discussed is the DNC hack -
