CIA, FBI Launch Manhunt for ‘Insider’ Who Leaked Docs to Wikileaks
The CIA and FBI have pivoted from their Russian narrative as they admit that perhaps a traitor on the inside leaked docs to Wikileaks rather than the ‘Russians hacked and leaked’.
Pompeo recently stated:
“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.”
It looks like Julian Assange was right again. He has repeatedly stated that the Russians were not being the DNC leaks nor the recent ‘Vault 7’ document drop which embarrassed the CIA by delivering punishing rounds of leaks. The CIA is finally admitting it wasn’t the Russians as they launch a manhunt for an insider who leaked the documents.
CBS News has learned that a manhunt is underway for a traitor inside the Central Intelligence Agency.
The CIA and FBI are conducting a joint investigation into one of the worst security breaches in CIA history, which exposed thousands of top-secret documents that described CIA tools used to penetrate smartphones, smart televisions and computer systems.
Sources familiar with the investigation say it is looking for an insider — either a CIA employee or contractor — who had physical access to the material. The agency has not said publicly when the material was taken or how it was stolen.
Much of the material was classified and stored in a highly secure section of the intelligence agency, but sources say hundreds of people would have had access to the material. Investigators are going through those names.
Wikileaks has actually admitted that they have received leaks from insiders and NOT Russian hackers yet the media has repeatedly ignored this because it doesn’t fit their ‘Russian hacking’ narrative.
WikiLeaks has 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 or on the status of the investigation.
