Former Technical Director of the Analysis and Recording Area at the National Security Agency (NSA) Bill Binney gives an explanation. By analyzing the coding of the messages themselves, he proves those messages were not “hacked” by anyone but were downloaded onto an external device and physically sent to Wikileaks. The Russians had nothing to do with it but were a convenient scapegoat to divert attention away from the damning contents of the leaks themselves. They revealed how the 2016 Democratic Primary was manipulated in favor of Hillary Clinton. That the old Cold War relationship between the US and Russia could possibly be inflamed was a convenient side effect. Here is the approximately 50 min. interview with Bill Binney.
