In a letter to President Donald Trump, the group claims the “knowledge was leaked (not hacked) by an individual with bodily entry to DNC computer systems.”
After analyzing the info, VIPS concluded that the switch merely doesn’t help the declare the paperwork had been hacked by Russian brokers, as leaders of the US intelligence community claimed in a January report.
Binney additionally spoke with RT’s Neil Harvey on Wednesday.
In the course of the assembly, Binney shared take a look at findings gleaned on the switch price of information, which he stated “clearly confirmed that it was an area obtain and never a global hack.”
“It was very clear it was an area obtain, due to the speeds and all,” Binney stated, explaining how his colleagues arrange a take a look at between an information middle in New Jersey and one other within the UK, and couldn’t reproduce the obtain that passed off on July 5, 2016.
The roughly 16GB of information was downloaded in two bursts, totaling 87 seconds, with a 12-minute pause between them.
“It needed to be completed regionally,” Binney informed RT America.
The info logs and the velocity take a look at had been the one concrete proof accessible for examination, he identified. “Every part else is theory, and agenda- and emotionally-driven assertions.”
If the intelligence group had some factual proof proving Russian hacking, that may be one other matter, the NSA whistleblower stated, however “up to now they’ve produced nothing.”
When requested who may have been behind the leak, Binney stated it could have been an “inside job,” however he couldn’t attribute it to anyone specifically, as a result of “we by no means knew who did the obtain, or whether or not or not it went anyplace else.”
President John F. Kennedy offered aerial surveillance images of Soviet missiles in Cuba through the 1962 missile disaster, Binney identified.

“If anyone did something throughout the web, NSA has so many faucets on the fiber community contained in the US and around the globe and so many traceroute packages embedded by the lots of across the community, they’d know the place these packets went,” Binney informed RT America.
The NSA and FBI “know much more than they’re telling the president,” Binney added.
The evaluation from VIPS implies the intelligence group shouldn’t be telling the Trump administration what actually occurred, Binney stated. They don’t need the American folks to listen to the reality both, he added.
“They’re hiding this. They maintain the inhabitants ignorant, uninformed to allow them to manipulate them any method they need,” Binney stated. “This is similar factor the mainstream media is doing.”
Mainstream media retailers have branded the VIPS evaluation as “disputed,” “fringe,” or a “conspiracy principle” (Washington Post, NBC, and CNN respectively) whereas failing to use the identical stage of skepticism to the US intelligence group narrative.
On Wednesday, the NSA whistleblower was repeatedly known as Binney a “conspiracy theorist” in a CNN article in regards to the assembly.
“That’s mainly exhibiting the shallow weak point of their argument,” Binney stated. “They produce no info in anyway and easily throw labels at folks to do character assassination.”
