Former NSA Tech Chief Says Mueller Report Was Based on CIA-Fabricated ‘Evidence’

NSA whistleblower, former NSA technical chief, Bill Binney, says CIA created the ‘evidence’ for the Mueller Report’s allegation that Russia had hacked DNC.

Eric Zuesse

On December 12th, the retired NSA whistleblower and former Technical Director of the NSA, Bill Binney asserted, at 39:00-44:00 in this audio interview of him:

BILL BINNEY: I basically have always been saying that all of this Russian hack never happened, but we have some more evidence coming out recently. We haven’t published it yet, but what we have seen is that there are at least five items that we’ve found that were produced by Guccifer 2.0 back on June 15th, where they had the Russian fingerprints in them, suggesting the Russians made the hack. Well, we found the same five items published by Wikileaks in the Podesta emails. Those items do not have the Russian fingerprints, which directly implies that Guccifer 2.0 was inserting these into the files to make it look like the Russians did this hack. Taking that into account with all the other evidence we have; like the download speeds from Guccifer 2.0 were too fast, and they couldn’t be managed by the web. And that the files he was putting together and saying that he actually hacked, the two files he said he had were really one file, and he was playing with the data; moving it to two different files to claim two hacks. Taking that into account with the fabrication of the Russian fingerprints, it leads us back to inferring that in fact the marble framework out of the Vault 7 compromise of CIA hacking routines was a possible user in this case. In other words, it looked like the CIA did this, and that it was a matter of the CIA making it look like the Russians were doing the hack. So, when you look at that and also look at the DNC emails that were published by Wikileaks that have this phat file format in them, all 35,813 of these emails have rounded off times to the nearest even second. That’s a phat file format property; that argues that those files were, in fact, downloaded to a thumb drive or CD-rom and physically transported before Wikileaks posted them. Which again argues that it wasn’t a hack. So, all of the evidence we’re finding is clearly evidence that the Russians were not in fact hacking; it was probably our own people. It’s very hard for us to get this kind of information out. The mainstream media won’t cover it; none of them will. It’s very hard. We get some bloggers to do that and some radio shows.

Also, I put all of this into a sworn affidavit in the Roger Stone case. I did that because all of the attack on him was predicated on him being connected with this Russian hack which was false to being with. All the evidence we’re accumulating clearly says and implies, the US government — namely the FBI, CIA, the DOJ, and of course State Department — all these people involved in this hack, bought a dossier and all of the information going forward to the FISA court. All of them knew that this was a fake from the very beginning, because this Guccifer 2.0 character was fabricating it. They were using him plus the Internet Research Agency [IRA] as “supposed trolls of the Russian government”. Well, when they sent their lawyers over to challenge that in a court of law, the government failed to prove they had any connection with the Russian government. They basically were chastised by the judge for fabricating a charge against this company. So, if you take the IRA and the trolls away from that argument, and Guccifer 2.0, then the entire Mueller report is a provable fabrication; because it’s based on Guccifer 2.0 and the IRA. Then the entire Rosenstein indictment is also a fabrication and a fake and a fraud for the same reasons. The judges seem to be involved in trying to keep this information out of the public domain. So, we have a really extensive shadow government here at work, trying to keep the understanding and knowledge of what’s really happening away from the public of the United States. That’s the really bad part. And the mainstream media is a participant in this; they’re culpable.

The CIA-edited and written Wikipedia, in its article about Binney, accuses him by saying — while providing no footnote or linked-to source for their allegation against him — “His dissent from the consensus view that Russia interfered with the 2016 US election appears to be based on Russian disinformation.” Ever since Binney went public criticizing U.S. intelligence agencies, they have been trying to discredit him. Thus far, however, their efforts have been nothing more than insinuations against his person, without any specific allegation of counter-evidence that discredits any of his actual assertions.

CORRECTION: The “phat” here misspells what is actually an acronym, “FAT”, and this was called to my attention via a reader-comment to this article, here, at South Front, from one of the world’s leading experts on cyber technology, Luke Herbert-Hansen, who was responding to my article there and kindly explained the significance of Binney’s reference there to “FAT”.

I don’t doubt it for a second.

Years ago that kind of adding finger prints software to make file looking like being tampered with by any foreign entity was exposed to be a standard CIA tool by the Snowden .

I do despair with Bill Binney sometimes, not because he isn’t trying to get the truth out but he leaves himself open to attack, not on the 95% which is likely accurate but the 5% he throws in which is not. My understanding is that the judge ruled that the DOJ in their indictment of the Internet Research Agency do not allege that IRA were acting as an agent of the Russian government, so the government can not go around elsewhere stating any such thing, as it could prejudice the case in his court. So nothing has been ‘proved’. It… Read more »

It’s been so obvious that the IRA was a click bait operation earning ad revenue. Maybe it was in addition a disguised but meek and ineffectual influence operation, to undermine Clinton’s chances but so what? Who wouldn’t have done the same? She’s a psychopathic liar, was dead set on launching a full scale air war in Syria risking WWIII and an ultimate overall danger to America’s national security. Anyway, this frankly horrific double standard of condemning those for what you yourself do X 100 as routine business practice and THEN with the holier than thou speeches makes me as an… Read more »

morals and ethics are not the exclusive property of the religious, in fact they are VERY far from it.
The fact that the judge in the Stone case declared this evidence inadmissible tells us just how deep and wide the cover-up really is, and should indicate what the ultimate outcome of the Trump impeachment is going to be, and what is ultimately happening here.
Its writ large, in 50′ tall neon letters, if you cant read the message yet…

Trump and Clinton each spent $80million on Facebook ads. 10s if not 100s of millions of ads were run. The IRA purchasing something like 50K to 100K of ads or $ of adds is not statistically large, especially in a billion dollar presidential auction.

Pretty Hot and Tempting file format huh? Why is the correction merely appended to the article instead of actually correcting the article? And who spelled it that way? It’s an important distinction because if it was Bill Binney, that raises the question of his technical knowledge. Of course I already knew about all of this years ago before the term “Russiagate” even existed, but referring to “phat” file format is embarrassing for someone who’s supposed to be a computer expert.

That was a transcription of a portion of an audio interview with Bill Binney as stated clearly above. The interview is linked in the piece.

Then the transcript itself should be corrected directly instead of merely appended.
