Obama admin backs Hillary’s claim Russia did it

As far back as the 2016 party conventions in July, Hillary Clinton was blaming the Russians for hacking and releasing embarrassing emails.


Now the Obama administration, through an executive agency, has decided to back up her claim.


Russia Today noted recently that emails and documents of the DNC were first released by Guccifer 2.0 in June, “but the DNC did not react until WikiLeaks released more files – which Guccifer 2.0 said he supplied to them – on the eve of the Democratic convention in Philadelphia.”


“Within hours, the Clinton campaign was accusing Russia and President Vladimir Putin personally of being behind the leaks, without disputing any of the document’s authenticity or content.”


Now the Obama administration, through the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Director of National Intelligence, is backing her claim.


In a statement that appeared just days ago, the agency said, “The U.S. Intelligence Community is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of emails from U.S. persons and institutions, including from U.S. political organizations.”
