When the infamous DNC Leaks hit the presses, one of the first accusations made by Hillary Clinton and her henchmen (and I mean, “henchmen”, given that 4 people are now dead linked to the DNC Leaks) shouted was that Russia was involved to help rig the election for Donald Trump (even though US intelligence as well as Israeli intelligence have debunked that theory).
However, this is not new news. What IS interesting is that Hillary is being investigated over the emails on her personal server, a Russian took credit for hacking it, and Crooked Hillary immediately denounced him as a lying criminal. Revealed in the DNC Leaks is this gem:
Hillary Clinton’s team quickly shot down a claim from a Romanian hacker that he had breached her private email server while she was secretary of State. “There is absolutely no basis to believe the claims made by this criminal from his prison cell. In addition to the fact he offers no proof to support his claims, his descriptions of Secretary Clinton’s server are inaccurate. It is unfathomable that he would have gained access to her emails and not leaked them the way he did to his other victims,” the Clinton camp wrote in a statement. Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, known as “Guccifer,” told several news outlets that he had easily hacked into her email server on more than one occasion. His hack into the email account of a close Clinton ally first brought her private email to light. Clinton has claimed throughout the investigations into her use of a private server that it was never infiltrated by foreign hackers as critics accuse her of putting confidential materials at risk. Lazar was recently extradited to the United States and is currently in prison in Alexandria, Va., facing other cybercrime charges. (Link)
So why was Team Hillary so adamant about rejecting the notion of Russian involvement over her private emails, and qualifying that “he offers no proof to support his claims”, when she immediately accused Russia without any “proof to support” such claims after the DNC Leak? Post DNC Leak, there was absolutely nothing offered by the DNC in the manner of “proof to support” their claims, it was mere speculation, yet over the personal email server, even after a confession by a hacker, the claim of Russian involvement was brushed off.
It seems Team Clinton is fond of using capricious tactics when it suits them. Given how the DNC stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders, nothing is much of a surprise when it comes to the dishonesty and underhanded scheming of Team Hillary.
