British Empire in Rug-Chewing Fit that Putin and Trump Might Make Peace

July 15, 2018 (EIRNS)—Desperate to head off a possible accommodation between President Trump and President Putin, the British, Robert Mueller, and the “resist” holdover forces in the U.S. have staged fresh information warfare operations to sabotage the Trump-Putin summit.

In the United States, two interrelated events occurred. First, embattled FBI agent Peter Strzok appeared before a joint House hearing on July 12 to claim that the Republicans on the House Judiciary and Government Oversight Committees were doing “Putin’s work” by continuing to examine the British and Obama Administration/Democratic Party origins of Russiagate.

Less than 24 hours later, Robert Mueller today indicted 12 members of Russia’s GRU military intelligence branch for allegedly hacking the DNC, John Podesta, and various other Democratic Party entities, in order to interfere in the 2016 U.S. elections against Hillary Clinton. Russia’s alleged cyber-activities are the central premise of Robert Mueller’s entire witch hunt against President Donald Trump. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer immediately demanded that Trump cancel his meeting with Putin, based on the indictment.

Former U.S. National Security Administration Technical Director William Binney on July 13 declared the document to be “a fabrication,” after having conducted a quick review of Mueller’s indictment, stating:

“The only actual forensic investigations performed on available data regarding ‘hacks’ of the DNC are independent investigations assessed and approved by a group of us at the Veterans Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS),” Binney stated.

“The FBI never even bothered to examine the DNC computers, relying instead on the DNC and Atlantic Council cyber contractor CrowdStrike for its evidence. Our analysis demonstrated that the ‘Guccifer 2.0’ and ‘DCLeaks’ personas were created inside the United States. Our analysis also fully demonstrated that the transfer of the information was consistent with a download to a thumb drive, not transmission over the internet.

“Separate and apart from the VIPS analysis, former CIA intelligence officer Ray McGovern and I have consistently said that available data surrounding charges regarding ‘Russian hacking’ suggest that the CIA’s Vault 7 Cyber weapons arsenal enabling false attribution and ‘tell-tale’ signs in Cyrillic and other ‘obfuscation’ may be at work....”

Binney said.
