DNC hack

Intel Vets Challenge ‘Russia Hack’ Evidence
here was no hack of DNC emails, and the documents that turned up in Wikileaks hands just before the Democratic National Convention last summer were “synthetically tainted” to look like they came from Russian sources. Those are the shock findings of several credentialed investigators you aren’t hearing about in most media. More surprising is that the two outlets now looking into this are Salon and The Nation, a liberal magazine. And making it harder to see why other media are ignoring this: The group undoing the Russian hack scenario—an alleged breach that’s brought U.S.-Russia relations to the brink while spilling a lot of figurative ink—is the same crack (and cranky) group of forensic investigators and former NSA officials who in 2003 debunked faulty intelligence leading up to the Iraq War. --Mindy Belz, Globe Trot
