The veracity of alleged “Russian hacking fingerprints” reported by cyber firm Crowdstrike on the DNC’s servers have been facing renewed scrutiny in recent weeks. If it can be proven that evidence of “Russian Hacking” had been simulated by the creators of Guccifer 2.0, then the essential fabric of the ‘Russian Hacking’ narrative would unravel. The creation of Guccifer 2.0, and the intent behind its creation, may have a profound effect on establishing the real source of the DNC leaks.
The website G2-Space by Adam Carter has become a repository for documents relating to Guccifer 2.0, who asserts that the alleged hacker was an artificial creation intended to associate Russian involvement with the DNC leaks. This week Carter reported to Disobedient Media that he was contacted by an individual he believes worked as a military intelligence agent during the Obama administration, which added weight to the questions raised by the content of his site.
