FLASHBACK: Guccifer (Marcel Lehel Lazar) Says Guccifer 2.0 Is Creation of NSA and US State Dept. – It was an “Inside Job”

Guest post by Joe Hoft

On Friday Crooked Cop Rod Rosenstein announced that Guccifer 2.0 broke into the Democratic servers.
12 Russian intelligence officers were indicted.
This comes 4 months after the Mueller Special Counsel took over the investigation of Guccifer 2.0.

Crooked and corrupt Assistant US AG Rod Rosenstein held a cyber law enforcement announcement in March to announce that the corrupt Mueller investigation was taking over the Guccifer 2.0 investigation.

But Guccifer (1) —  Marcel Lehel Lazar —  says that Guccifer 2 is a creation of the NSA and US State Department!?!

In August of 2017, the Eastern European hacker known as “Guccifer” reached out to US reporters from prison in Romania to claim that Guccifer 2.0 is a scheme orchestrated by the National Security Agency and US State Department.

Guccifer, whose real name is Marcel Lehel Lazar, was arrested in 2014 for hacking Hillary Clinton’s former political aide Sidney Blumenthal. Lazar first revealed to the world that Clinton was using a non-secure private email address while serving as the US Secretary of State.

Lazar admitted to accessing personal email and social media accounts of approximately 100 American citizens by using Russian proxy servers because they were “the fastest.” In 2016 he was sentenced to 52 months in US prison after he finishes a seven-year sentence in Romania for hacking crimes committed there.

Lazar told Fox News senior executive producer Pamela Browne that –

…he believed Guccifer 2.0, the hacker behind multiple US Democratic National Committee (DNC) leaks, to be a fabrication by the US government — an “inside job.” He said the idea came from one of his State Department handlers during his extradition plane ride to the US in spring 2016. The government employee, assigned to make sure Lazar arrived safely to an American jail, mentioned: “What would your opinion be if another Guccifer showed up?”

“I think Guccifer two-zero is something made from some guys at the State Department. Some guys from the cyber command of the NSA, and some guys from the Vault, Vault 7 of the CIA…I’m in this business for sort of 15 years now, this is my take,” Lazar said.

Guccifer argued that –

“The Russians are more skillful than this to let tracks in the documents [point] to them…so this is made by the other guys who wanted [to point] to the Russians.”

In an exclusive interview with FOX’s Catherine Herridge in May of 2016, Romanian hacker “Guccifer” said that he hacked Hillary Clinton’s server and that it was easy.  The 44-year-old Lazar said he first compromised Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal’s AOL account, in March 2013, and used that as a stepping stone to the Clinton server.

Guccifer told Herridge that from evidence he came across there were at least 10 other groups or individuals who also breached Hillary’s private server.

Will Crooked Rosenstein and Mueller mention today that Guccifer 2 is make believe just like Trump-Russia collusion?  Will they note that at least 10 entities or individuals obtained access to Hillary Clinton’s private server?  Or will they say that Guccifer 2 is actually Russia and they worked with Trump to steal the election?  Crooks Rosenstein and Mueller are insane!
