Here Comes Wikigate 2: NYT Claims Russian Hackers Successfully “Breached” Burisma

2522

Color us skeptical, alt-right, conspiracy-wonk, Putin-puppets; but the transparency and timing of tonight’s “bombshell” report from The New York Times of an ‘alleged’ hacking by ‘allegedly’ Russian hackers of Burisma – the Ukrainian energy firm that VP Biden’s crack-smoking, energy-ignorant son was paid $50,000 per month as a board member – reeks so strongly of foundational narrative-building for something “embarrassing” that is coming, it is stunning just how dumb the deep state must think the American public really is. Actually, maybe not all that stunning.

According to Area 1, the Silicon Valley security firm that detected the hacking, Russian hackers from a military intelligence unit known formerly as the G.R.U., and to private researchers by the alias “Fancy Bear,” used so-called phishing emails that appear designed to steal usernames and passwords, to gain access to Burisma’s network.

Full Area 1 Report here:

Oren Falkowitz, a co-founder of Area 1, and previously a hacker at the National Security Agency, proclaimed in the report that “the attacks were successful,” even though it is unknown what the alleged hackers were attempting to discover.

The timing of the Russian campaign mirrors the G.R.U. hacks we saw in 2016 against the D.N.C. and John Podesta,” the Clinton campaign chairman, Mr. Falkowitz said.

“Once again, they are stealing email credentials, in what we can only assume is a repeat of Russian interference in the last election.”

As The Mercury News reported, over the summer, Area 1 persuaded the Federal Election Commission to allow it to provide low-cost services to political campaigns, which would typically be a violation of rules designed to prevent businesses from currying political favor.

Additionally, and coming as no surprise to many, Mr. Falkowitz is a significant donor to Democrats; and even more intriguing, the company’s CSO – Blacke Darche – also worked at the NSA and most notably, Crowdstrike.

While NYT admits it is not yet clear what the hackers found, or precisely what they were searching for, that did not stop them speculating, based on more anonymous sources.

The Times, citing an American security official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence, claiming – without any proof – that the Russian attacks on Burisma appear to be running parallel to an effort by Russian spies in Ukraine to dig up information in the analog world that could embarrass the Bidens. The spies, the official said, are trying to penetrate Burisma and working sources in the Ukrainian government in search of emails, financial records and legal documents.

So-called “experts” reportedly claim the timing and scale of the attacks suggest that the Russians could be searching for potentially embarrassing material on the Bidens – the same kind of information that Mr. Trump wanted from Ukraine when he pressed for an investigation of the Bidens and Burisma, setting off a chain of events that led to his farcical impeachment.

All sounds very sinister!

The New York Times, thoughtfully asks Andrew Bates, a spokesman for the Biden campaign, what his thoughts are on the entirely unfounded story. His response is unsurprising to say the least…

“Donald Trump tried to coerce Ukraine into lying about Joe Biden and a major bipartisan, international anti-corruption victory because he recognized that he can’t beat the vice president.”

“Now we know that Vladimir Putin also sees Joe Biden as a threat.”

“Any American president who had not repeatedly encouraged foreign interventions of this kind would immediately condemn this attack on the sovereignty of our elections.”

Oh we are sure Putin is terrified of Biden!?

And the icing on the cake from the New York Times reporters, to ensure the dumbfounded reader is completely clear on what just happened (without any shadow of a doubt)…

The Russian tactics are strikingly similar to what American intelligence agencies say was Russia’s hacking of emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman and the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 presidential campaign. In that case, once they had the emails, the Russians used trolls to spread and spin the material, and built an echo chamber to widen its effect.

Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes true?

So, what are the Democrats preparing for? Another round of embarrassing leaked emails – Wikigate 2.0? And this story is designed to plant the seed that anyone who releases any of the “hacked” emails – which may or may not expose crimes by the Bidens (or Pelosis) is a Russian agent and must be shunned, censored, and generally disavowed by any and all Western media.

Or, you could choose to believe that the Russians – who allegedly were so dumb last time as to make it obvious it was them doing the hacking – have done it again… following the same pattern, and getting caught in their “meddling”? Oh wait, they have answer for that ‘conspiracy theory’ – that Russian hackers are “lazy”…

“The Burisma hack is a cookie-cutter G.R.U. campaign,” Mr. Falkowitz said.

Russian hackers, as sophisticated as they are, also tend to be lazy. They use what works. And in this, they were successful.”

Which is odd. Given how terrified every establishment type was at the thought of Iranians hacking America’s most sensitive infrastructure in the last week, one might think that well-trained Russian hackers would be a little more adept. But then again, anyone who chooses to not believe the NYT story hook, line, and sinker – is clearly a puppet of Putin.

  1. lol, now I understand why Pelosi is babbling away about Putin all of a sudden again. I doubt Putin looks at Slow Joe as a threat. Even here in America all we see Slow Joe as a fool, who can’t even remember what State he’s in.

    Gee, the leaking fountain that was allowed in the Obama Administration, no wonder e-mails are starting to become public.

    Democrats should be embarrassed. And someone SHOULD look into this MAJOR national security problem.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

    • https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2020/01/13/schiff-calling-bidens-to-testify-would-turn-impeachment-into-a-sham/

      Schiff said, “Look, I’m not a fact witness, so other than nullifying the president, I’m not sure why the Senate would call me or Nancy Pelosi as a witness.”

      Hey “pencil neck” you are a fact witness because you were involved with the whistleblower. And regarding Nasty Nancy, she needs to take the stand and let everyone know why she is allowing this sham to go forward.

      And the one with relative information is Hunter Biden, who along with the “ketchup son” were involved with the criminal actions in Ukraine.

      Regarding the Senate making YOUR sham a complete sham, is if they do NOT dismiss this right away. It will then give the Democrats more leverage to continue impeaching President Trump through 2020 and when President Trump is re-elected continue the impeachment sham show.

      My hopes is that when Durham’s report comes out, Schiffy Schiff, Nasty Nancy, Nadler and the rest will be called in to testify. There at least it will not be political but criminal.

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

    • DemonRats are incapable of embarrassment. They are setting the stage for being targeted with their corruption evidence coming out. They are going to blame POTUS again. Russia gate II. What ever is reported via msm is cover for demonRat’s. Look at all reports with a jaundice I.

  2. You know what’s even more suspicious, timing-wise? Trump’s ordered strike on Iran’s top General!
    Nothing like distracting the public away from his imminent Senate Impeachment Trial…distraction- a tool CONSTANTLY used by the IMPOTUS!

    • You should have watched Laura Ingraham last night. She interviewed Lee Smith, author of “The Plot Against the President”. His theory and he has documentation is that the Iranian terrorist was the cornerstone of the Iran Nuclear Deal. I believe actual letters from Obama to this terrorist. That’s why the Democrats are so mad. That’s why Kerry is siding with the Iranian terrorists against the USA.

      I think Pelosi is using the Impeachment hoax sham to distract the American People what Obama did with the Iranian terrorist. Sending all that money to help a terrorist regime to get nuclear bomb.

      But go ahead, keep wearing those Obama colored glasses. I’m SO glad President Trump and our Military sent this “Iran’s top general” to hell.

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

    • https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2020/01/13/john-kerry-trumps-soleimani-story-a-cover-up/

      lol, someone is getting a little nervous. Shame on you Kerry for going with Obama’s and Valarie Jarrett’s plans to lay the foundation for Iran terrorists to get the nuclear bomb. Set it up so that you all would be out of office and the next president would have to take over your cover up.

      Well thankfully President Trump and NOT Hilary “the criminal” Clinton made it into the White House. President Trump and our Military made sure “your cornerstone” was taken out and sent to hell. And President Trump already committed to the American People and the World that under his watch Iran would NOT get a nuclear bomb.

      So Mr. Kerry, as a war vet, you turned your back on your oath. You turned your back on this Great Nation. You now uphold the Iran terrorist regime and put down Our President and this Great Nation.

      You definitely need to be brought in for questioning about your involvement, especially your secret meetings stating “don’t worry Trump will be out of there soon”. You are truly a traitor to this Great Nation. Also I would love to hear how much the “Ketchup son” made with Where’s Biden using your influence as Sec of State and OUR tax dollars.

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

  3. ★I’am made $84, 8254 so far this year working on the web and I’m a full time understudy. Im utilizing an online business opportunity I caught wind of and I’AM profited. It’s truly easy to understand and I’m simply so cheerful that I got some answers concerning it. Here what I do,.for more data essentially open this connection thank you……. Read more

  4. I think it is past time that Kerry becomes the first person to ever be arrested and dragged before a federal judge for violating the Logan act.

    • 100% Agree

      For those who don’t know what the Logan Act is:

      “The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized American citizens with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States.”

      Negotiations with Iran terrorists so they could get a nuclear bomb? Definitely need to drag him in, make him testify, then throw him in Gitmo. He’s a complete traitor to the USA.

      Bet he’ll squeal and bring Obama and Clinton and their Globalist backer George Soreass down with him. That would be a GOOD thing.

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

  5. The RUSSIAN hackers have changed the game by eliminating Hunter & Joe Biden from any mention with Ukraine or the Oil Company and switched Trumps name so, the Democrats are preparing Impeachment Documents referencing this new found evidence. lol

    • You mean the Chinese, Russian, Pakistani, and you know Iran was involved with the hackings of Clinton’s private server, the DNC, John Podesta’s, and the DCCC. Lots of globalists players had information that was supposed to be secure.

      Hmmm, what type of plane was shot down in Iran? A Ukraine plane.

      This new found evidence is BS. But then again, watching Schiffy “pencil neck” revise the transcript in the hearing, it’s just another Democrat play to Really stop the real information coming out. Know that not just Where’s Hunter and the “Ketchup son” was involved. But also Pelosi’s son as well. And how much you want to bet Schiffy was getting kickbacks too. He didn’t just go on Russia Today in 2005? to talk about FISA warrants for nothing.

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

  6. Yea NYT a notable FAUX news paper … they are lucky to get the day printed accurately on the front page let alone report accurate news. If its from the NYT it really isn’t a headline but nothing more than a line to sell papers. Credibility zero.

  7. https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2020/01/14/house-democrat-well-keep-investigating-trump-russia-conspiracy-after-impeachment/

    And this idiot is in Congress?

    “A trial has documents, a trial has witnesses. You don’t show up at a trial and the judge and jury say, “this is over.”

    Hey dolt, a impeachment trial starts in the House. They have documents. They have witnesses.

    THEN it goes to the Senate, that is the jury with a judge who will answer the jury’s questions about the documents and witnesses done in the House.

    But with the “house of cards” sent via Schiffy/Nadler, it could be dismissed because there is NO evidence. The one fact witness said their was no quid pro quo. And the transcript of the phone call shows no quid pro quo.

    IF there are witnesses still needed to be called, it should have been done in the House. I know the House Republicans sure would have LOVED to question the whistleblower. It’s NOT the Senate’s job to do the House’s job.

    But then again your a Democrat and have NO clue what the Constitution states about anything. You just have one agenda. And that’s getting the duly elected President out of the White House because he beat Hilary Clinton. And because Hilary Clinton lost ALL the CORRUPTION that is connected to Ukraine and Iran and China could NOT be swept under the rug, or servers bleached, or phones destroyed, or e-mails lost, or more documents hacked by the Globalists.

    So after this impeachment scam is done, hey why not another, and another, and another? Absolutely pathetic. Of the People, By the People, For the People? Nah. I think it should be required that all Democrat dolts need to have a REAL History lesson and lessons on the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Because they surely don’t know anything.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

  8. I honestly never thought the Russians hacked either Hillary’s computer or the DNC computer. It bothers me that our investigators never actually saw either of the computers-they rather just took the word for it offered by strong Democrat backers (Crowd Strike for Hillary’s and God only knows for the DNC computer). The fact is, the FBI never looked at either computer and both Hillary and the DNC claims that the FBI never asked to see them. Our Intel Community says there is no doubt the Russians did the hacking and none of them have ever seen either computer, either (all of the IC are people placed in their jobs by Obama and they are doing everything they can to protect his administration). So, the Democrats say let’s impeach Trump and get rid of him because the Russians hacked the computers to help Trump. Just a little more treason, but for Democrats, that isn’t a problem.
