Russian “Hacking”: Indictment Admits it Had No Effect on US Election Outcome

The official US Department of Justice indictment which claims that “Russians” hacked the Democratic Party’s servers before the 2016 election specifically states that there is no evidence to show that it affected that election’s outcome in any way—contrary to the controlled media’s hysterical allegations.

The official indictment—as placed on the US Department of Justice’s website—says that there “is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the vote count or changed the outcome of the 2016 election.”

The indictment—which has yet to be proven as true—claims that twelve Russian nationals,, all supposedly members of the GRU, a Russian Federation intelligence agency within the Main Intelligence Directorate of  the Russian military, “engaged in a sustained effort to hack into the computer networks of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic National Committee, and the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, and released that information on the internet under the names ‘DCLeaks’ and ‘Guccifer 2.0. and through another entity.”

The indictment does not mention WikiLeaks by name, but refers to it as “Organization 1” that “had previously posted documents stolen from US persons, entities and the US government.”

WikiLeaks published the emails from the private account of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, starting in October 2016.

The indictment claims that one of the suspects “searched for open-source information about the DNC network, the Democratic Party, and Hillary Clinton” in March 2016.

The following month, the indictment says, the group hacked into the DCCC network and installed malware that later enabled them to access the DNC computers. They allegedly “compressed” the files and moved them using the software the indictment calls “X-Tunnel” and tried to hide their tracks by deleting access longs.

Left out from the indictment is how the federal investigators obtained any evidence of this, given that the FBI never got access to the DNC servers.

Instead, the bureau took the word of the DNC cyber security contractor, CrowdStrike, which is referred to in the indictment as ‘Company 1.’

The indictment goes on to list 11 criminal counts:

* “Count One alleges a criminal conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States through cyber operations by the GRU that involved the staged release of stolen documents for the purpose of interfering with the 2016 president election;

* Counts Two through Nine charge aggravated identity theft for using identification belonging to eight victims to further their computer fraud scheme;

* Count Ten alleges a conspiracy to launder money in which the defendants laundered the equivalent of more than $95,000 by transferring the money that they used to purchase servers and to fund other costs related to their hacking activities through cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin; and

* Count Eleven charges conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States by attempting to hack into the computers of state boards of elections, secretaries of state, and US companies that supplied software and other technology related to the administration of elections.”

Despite this, the indictment then immediately states that “There is no allegation in the indictment that any American was a knowing participant in the alleged unlawful activity or knew they were communicating with Russian intelligence officers. There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the vote count or changed the outcome of the 2016 election.”

Finally, the DOJ statement ends with its pro forma warning: “Everyone charged with a crime is presumed innocent unless proven guilty in court. At trial, prosecutors must introduce credible evidence that is sufficient to prove each defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, to the unanimous satisfaction of a jury of twelve citizens.”

  1. The Israeli lobby hates Russia because it stood against the isis war crimes in Syria. Israel-first jew$$$ captured the seat of US government quite a while ago and the average American who tunes into controlled media is devoid of the truth.
