Guccifer 2.0 is back to dispel the Democratic Party/Clinton Campaign diversion tactic that effectively placed all the hacking blame on Russia and Vladimir Putin.
The dangerous and dishonest maneuver by the Democrats and Hillary Clinton to take away the focus on the fact that the primary elections against Bernie Sanders were rigged, and instead focus all the attention on “mystery” Russian hackers, has led to the actual DNC hacker, Guccifer 2.0, to go on record with the WSJ, and set the record straight.
A historic hack of this magnitude is a badge of honor that just about any hacker would love to claim credit for. It comes as no surprise that Guccifer 2.0 may feel short changed by the fact that made up Russian hackers, under the directive of Russian President Vladimir Putin, are taking credit for this game changing hack.
Wall Street Journal is reporting that it has interviewed a person claiming to be the hacker responsible for leaking confidential materials from the Democratic Party (aka Guccifer 2.0), and that he is not connected to Russia, and is angry that Moscow is getting all the credit for his actions.
WSJ wrote that it exchanged a series of direct messages with a person identifying himself as Guccifer 2.0.
The person involved in the message exchange was using the same social media account that was previously used to leak Democrat party documents. The WSJ admits it could not identify the person sending the messages by any other means other than via social media accounts.
Here is what was written in the message exchange by the person alleged to be Guccifer 2.0…
“I read several reports, some experts found out that my proxy IP is hosted at a service that’s somehow connected with Russia and has a version in Russian as well as in English.”
“This is their strong evidence,” (adding a smile emoticon).
“My goal is to bring the truth, I call it to bring the light.”
“The big capital has occupied the policy.”
“Big [IT] companies are leading us to the disaster.”
In the communication with WSJ, Guccifer 2.0 said that pointing fingers at Moscow or Beijing has become a convenient excuse for the Americans.
“I believe in case with the U.S. this is the most safe point to use Russian and Chinese services,” the hacker wrote.
Asked whether he wanted to undermine the Democratic Party’s bid for the oval office in favor of the Republicans, Guccifer 2.0 denied that this was his or her goal.
Guccifer 2.0 acknowledged that the release of hacked DNC materials was timed to coincide with the electoral cycle to draw more attention to his or her message.
“I think I won’t have a better opportunity to promote my ideas than this year,” he wrote.
The hacker said he or she has “more info” that may be leaked to the public.
