Putin Spokesperson To Obama: Put Up Or Shut Up

With President Obama joining the witchhunt this week, the nascent campaign against Russia seems to have reached its zenith. As anyone could have guessed though, Russia is not taking these accusations sitting down, with Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov describing the claims as “indecent” and demanding the US provide proof if there is any truth to them:
“They should either stop talking about that or produce some proof at last. Otherwise it all begins to look unseemly,” Peskov reportedly said about the latest accusations that Russia was responsible for hacker attacks.
President Barack Obama on Thursday vowed retaliatory action against Russia in the light of allegations that it meddled in the US presidential election campaign.
“I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action and we will at a time and place of our own choosing,” he told NPR.

What is known about the hacking

• Data and thousands of emails were stolen from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, among other targets.
• US intelligence agencies in October pinned blame on Russia for campaign-related hacking.
• WikiLeaks, which published much of the information obtained by hacking, has refused to reveal its sources.
• The United States has not alleged that Russia interfered with the voting process on Election Day.”
Also speaking up was WikiLeaks, the hacktivist group that published the DNC emails during the election. Brilliantly putting the lie to Obama and his allies’ claims, WikiLeaks said they should submit any documents corroborating their conclusions to the group so they can see if they are credible:

“The tweet comes only a day Obama told NPR, “there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action.”

The president has ordered a full review into the hacking and expects it will give “a comprehensive and best guess as to those motivations,” behind the leaks.

The Washington Post published an article last week featuring claims by anonymous CIA officials that Russia had “intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump.” It quickly came under public scrutiny, as people were wary of trusting anonymous claims without evidence, given the intelligence agencies’ historyoflying to the public.

@wikileaks There is no documents to submit!!


The Washington Post’s owner, Jeff Bezos’s, also has contracts with the CIA worth$600 million, more than double what he paid for the Post.

There have been calls for the intelligence agencies to produce evidence of Russian government hacking the DNC.”
