FBI Quietly Admits Russian Hacking Was BS, Launches Manhunt After New Lead

The FBI has finally decided that it needs to do its job, but apparently, it’ll be done quietly. After months of scamming the American public, the intelligence agency has a new goal and a new investigation after discretely admitting that the Russians didn’t hack the election. Now, they claim to have a new lead and a manhunt has ensued.

Having exclaimed that WikiLeaks is “a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia,” the FBI has laid the blame for every embarrassing leak at Moscow’s footsteps, but now, they are looking for a non-Russian “insider” since they can’t keep blaming the wrong entities, Zero Hedge reports.

According to CBS News, a manhunt is underway for a “traitor” inside the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Sources familiar with the investigation say it is looking for either a CIA employee or contractor. They want to know who had physical access to the leaked material.

The agency has not said publicly when the material was taken or how it was stolen, but it is now known that Russia isn’t to blame. Much of the leaked material was classified and stored in a highly secure section of the intelligence agency, but hundreds of people would have had access to it. Investigators are going through those names.

The trove of information, published in March by WikiLeaks, was devastating to the CIA. In his first public comments as director of the CIA just last week, Mike Pompeo railed against WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange for releasing all the information. Pompeo’s problem was not with the content itself, which is proving authentic, but with who leaked the information to WikiLeaks.

When ranting about the whistleblowing website, he personally added a dash of blame to Russia. “It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia,” Pompeo said in his crazy verbal assault.

But, Wikileaks didn’t keep where the information came from a secret. They simply kept the leaker anonymous to protect him or her from the CIA’s wrath. WikiLeaks said it obtained the CIA information from former contractors who worked for U.S. intelligence.

The CIA has not commented on the authenticity of the WikiLeaks disclosures, meaning they are likely genuine. They also won’t comment on the status of this investigation, except to admit that they are looking for an insider, not a Russian, as they previously led us to believe.

It seems once again that WikiLeaks’ facts were facts and CIA/FBI facts were fake. The American public has all but lost faith in the once trustworthy intelligence agencies. It doesn’t seem like the FBI and CIA even do much of anything other that pander to the left and cover for their own crimes. Yet, they somehow expect the civilians, with access to the world’s information via the world wide web, to trust them.

The information leaked by Wikileaks was relevant and important. It was also information that civilians deserved to know. It validated conspiracy theorists and made everyone aware of the fact that the government has way too much power and control over our lives. So, of course, the CIA and FBI had to blame someone, and Russia seems like the scapegoat of the year.
