NSA Whistleblower: US Intelligence Worker Likely Behind DNC Leaks, Not Russia

During the third and last presidential debate between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, debate moderator Chris Wallace pulled a quote from a speech Clinton had given to Brazilian bankers, noting the information had been made available to the public via WikiLeaks.

Instead of answering the question, Clinton blamed the Russian government for the leaks, alleging “[t]he Russian government has engaged in espionage against Americans,” hacking “American websites, American accounts of private people, of institutions … in an effort, as 17 of our intelligence agencies have confirmed, to influence our election.”

Following the claim, Clinton criticized Trump for saying[Clinton] has no idea whether it’s Russia, China, or anybody else,” repeating her assertion that 17 U.S. intelligence agencies had determined the Russian government had been behind the Democratic National Committee (DNC) hack.

Despite her claim, reality couldn’t be more different.

Instead of 17 agencies, only the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have offered the public any input on this matter, claiming the DNC attacks “are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts.”

Without offering any evidence, these two — not 17 — agencies hinted that the Kremlin could be behind the cyber attack. But saying they believe the hacks come from the Russians is far short of saying they know the Russians were behind them.

During an interview on Aaron Klein’s Sunday radio program, former high-ranking NSA intelligence official-turned-whistleblower, William Binney, discussed the alleged Russian involvement in our elections, suggesting the cyber attack against the DNC may not have originated from the Russian government. Instead, Binney says, adisgruntled U.S. intelligence worker” is likely behind the breach.

Speaking as an analyst, Binney added that a testimony by the former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Robert S. Mueller from March 2011 shows the FBI has access to a series of databases that helps them “to track down known and suspected terrorists.”

According to Binney, what Mueller meant is that the FBI has access to the NSA database and that it’s accessed without any oversight, meaning the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), as well as the FBI, have open access to anything the NSA has access to. “So if the FBI really wanted [Clinton’s and the DNC emails] they can go into that database and get them right now,” Binney told Klein.

Asked if he believed the NSA had copies of all Clinton’s emails, including the deleted correspondence,” Binney said:

Yes. That would be my point. They have them all and the FBI can get them right there.”

While Binney seems to be the only intelligence insider who has come forward with this type of analysis, a young man from Russia whose servers were implicated in the recent hacking of the DNC sites says he has information that will lead to the hacker — yet the FBI won’t knock on his door.

In a conversation with the New York Times, Vladimir M. Fomenko said his server rental company, King Servers, is oftentimes used by hackers. Fomenko added that the hackers behind the attack against computerized election systems in Arizona and Illinois — which, like the DNC hack, were also linked to the Russian government by the FBI — had used his servers.

According to the 26-year-old entrepreneur, “[w]e have the information. … If the F.B.I. asks, we are ready to supply the I.P. addresses, the logs, … but nobody contacted us.”

It’s like nobody wants to sort this out, he added.

After learning that two renters using the nicknames Robin Good and Dick Robin had used his servers to hack the Arizona and Illinois voting systems, Fomenko released a statement saying he learned about the problem through the news and shut down the two users down shortly after.

While he told the New York Times he doesn’t know who the hackers are, he used his statement to report that the hackers are not Russian security agents.

The analysis of the internal data allows King Servers to confidently refute any conclusions about the involvement of the Russian special services in this attack,” he said on September 15, the New York Times reported.

According to Fomenko, he found a trail left by the hackers through their contact with King Servers’ billing page, which leads to the next step in the chain to bring investigators in the United States closer to the hackers.”

The clients used about 60 I.P. addresses to contact Fomenko, including addresses belonging to server companies in Finland, France, Italy, Norway, Britain, and Sweden. With these addresses in hand, authorities could track the hackers down.

But while this information is somewhat recent, few news organizations found it necessary to report on the King Servers link. In the past, however, at least one major news network mentioned Binney.

In August 2016, Judge Andrew Napolitano commented on the DNC hack.

On “Judge Napolitano Chambers,” the Judge said that while the DNC, government officials, and the Clinton campaign all accuse the Russians of hacking into the DNC servers, the Russians had nothing to do with it.

Napolitano then mentioned Binney, arguing the NSA veteran and whistleblower who “developed the software that the NSA now uses, which allows it to capture not just metadata but content of every telephone call, text message, email in the United States of every person in [the country]” knew the NSA had hacked the DNC — not the Russians.

If Judge Napolitano and Binney are right and the NSA did hack the DNC, what was the motive?

According to the Judge, members of the intelligence community simply do not want [Clinton] to be president of the United States.”

She doesn’t know how to handle state secrets,” Napolitano continued. And since “some of the state secrets that she revealed used the proper true names of American intelligence agents operating undercover in the Middle East,” some of these agents were allegedly captured and killed, prompting NSA agents to feel compelled to act.

Whether NSA agents hacked the DNC or not, one thing is clear: there’s no real evidence linking the DNC and Arizona and Illinois voting system hacks to the Russian government.

What,,, $hillary LIE about Russia and the intelligence agencies...?


hedgeless_horseman's picture


Most voters cannot spell NSA.

People remember less than 10% of what you tell them, but more than 90% of how you make them feel.

The governments and propagandists understand this.

Sortition is the better way to affect a democratic republic, especially if bribery of a public official is punishable by death.

Nice job, Hill-  jump to conclusions because you can't think your way out of a paper bag....

Everything else aside, this chick is just too stupid and hot-headed to be President.

The question / answer was a setup to allow Clinton to reinforce the 'Russians hacked the election' just in case Clinton loses.

We have Obomber saying US elections can't be hacked, provided Clinton wins, and 'The Russians Hacked the Elections' if Clinton loses. Either way, it is war with Russia.

NSA has every email ever sent since at least 2000.

FBI has 15,000 of Hillary's emails. If she's innocent why not release them now and doom Trump.

Or she's guilty and will pardon herself when elected.

Or she's guilty and Trump will jail her.

I think the leaks are coming from the FBI, perhaps even from Comey. Whatever the DOJ said, did, or threatened to do to squelch the FBI's recommendation for indictment really pissed off the FBI. Now it's payback time, only routed through Wikileaks for plausible deniability..."It's the Russians trying to influence our elections!"... It's quite a brilliant plan actually.

Hey toro, previously mofio then santafe then Aristotle of Greece then Gargoyle then bleu then oops then lance-a-lot then most recently Loftie. Looks like Loftie got banned or perhaps just completely outed. I shalln’t miss him! Let’s see how long toro survives, shall we? You need to create those new Account names more quickly toro. Would regular ZH contributors please take a moment to help me in my campaign against this idiot and report toro to abuse@zerohedge.com.

You are a serial spammer and a serial pain in the ass. Might I politely suggest that you go fuck yourself? And get a life.

PS. You might have noticed that my attempt to expose you for what you are is always the same. That’s because your Spam is always the same (Using fake links to your BS site which has no connection to your comments; which are deliberately dramatic to mislead people into responding or clicking on the fake link) so it seems only fair that my exposure of your crap should also always be the same. An eye for an eye.

Naw, she's not skilled at it- she's pretty poor at it..... It's just that it's the only thing she can do- even when it would be to her benefit, she simply cannot tell the truth-

The mark of a true psychopathic personality.

Judge Napolitano said the NSA and others know Hillary cannot handle state secrets.   No she and Bill  any state secrets for cash.  Just like JG Wentworth or some other scam - see you structured settlement for cash.  Clintons sell secrets, bribes, deals and scams for quick cash.

Here's an interesting take on who hacked the emails. UFO researchers are enthusiastic about finding out about who knows what concerning a government cover-up about UFOs. Podesta was very interested in the subject and he was a good target for the UFO hackers. I don't know what to make of this but these are the days of conspiracy theory turning into conspiracy fact.

What's another false flag amongst US presidents. 

nibiru's picture

This is why the emotional argument (or one that causes emotional backlash, and not only concern after a logical analysis) should be the aim of next leak.


Make people disgusted by Hillary - this is how she loses. 

During Al Smith's dinner Trump finally mentioned 'inappropriate laugh' of Hillary (child rapist case) and everyone, everyone understood it. Next step is to make this comment during one of his rallies and start another sh*tstorm on social media about it.


This is the rules of the 2016 election. Not head-to-head comparison with facts but rather emotional outbursts and smearing.

Better think twice, Trump knocked it out of the park in Gettysburg.

There are now no undecided voters.

It's now a clear numbers thing between FSA and the rest of us.

Sortition doesn't solve a damn thing. Short term limits obfuscates who is responsible for what, since the chair constantly seats different actors. No election process and term limits remove accountability in that there is no long term incentive to the office holder. Sortition as a mechanism for selection can be easily gamed by those in power, and potentially requires invasive documentation, like a national ID.

The State is the disease. Attempting to ease the symptoms of this illness will not achieve anything. It's a secular relgion that we need to move past.

I told you the call is coming from inside the house.

If they knew it was Russia they would go to the UN Security Counsel because it would be an act of war.

They haven't.

WillyGroper's picture

not if they're working with them.


HowdyDoody's picture

They will if Trump wins. Obomber/Clinton statements - The elections can't be hacked if Clinton wins and Russia hacked them if Clinton loses.

MANvsMACHINE's picture

At that point, if Trump wins, anyone from the NSA can go public and deny it was the Russians. Nothing Obama could do at that point because Trump would then be taking over in a couple of months.

For a person to feel good ... means money to buy things and create that warm fuzzy feeling.

Problem ... me, you, system is economically skint to keep the feel good keep kicking the can.

Plan B then, oppress the population.

Saying that Hillary lied is antithetical to the state narrative. There is only one true light the state.

I'll just note, FWIW, that I suspect that there are some within the intelligence community (one of the hearts of the Deep State) who really do care for America.  I used to work with some.

It would not surprise me if someone there leaked to Wiki...

Not everyone withing the Deep State is for Hillary.  Defining "Deep State" is tricky...

How many points will Hillary have to give back from her perfect debate score?

Trump should officially challenge the results of the last debate just to piss off her and the MSM.

The Obama regime can only lie and they love to try to pin everything that goes wrong on Russia's Vladimir Putin (Syria is a good example of that). Nice try Obozo, but it's not working! https://waitforthedownfall.wordpress.com/get-bashar-al-assad/

Yep, I've said it all along. Some NSA folks are GOOD people. Not all of them are creepy peeper freaks. (Just consider Snowden...)

Now, the question becomes, Why won't the FBI follow up with the NSA! I mean, they have IP addresses, logs, etc (though the whistleblower likely obfuscated his or her identity). The chance that Russia is behind these leaks is about 0%.

Clinton is a cunt. We all know it. She'll do anything, including start a war with Russia, to steal this election.

VWAndy's picture

 Ask any of um about the dirty tricks they play on all the little people.

gonetogalt's picture

Trump pointed that out today. "If they can do this to me, what can they do to you?"

VWAndy's picture

What have they already done is a better question to be asking. IP theft? Cockblocking? Fucking with phones?

  The idea that these guys are only passively collecting data is a smoke screan for the other stuff. Double dealin spooks should not be a suprize to anyone.

johansen's picture

from someone who alelgedly has been privy to meetings that turn into shouting matches between generals, the FBI and the CIA and the NSA, are all sort of at war. they spend as much time hacking each other as they do investigating anything.


as for emails. of course they have copies of all of them.
