Sec. of State Contender John Bolton Says DNC’s Email Hack was ‘False Flag’ by Obama Administration

In video (bel0w) Ambassador John Bolton, and rumored Secretary of State in President Trump’s administration, presented a stunning chain of logic and facts on Sunday that DNC hacks during the 2016 election were “a false flag” operation intended to disparage Donald Trump and his Presidential nomination  — committed by the Obama administration itself.

In an interview on Fox News, Bolton pointed to the Obama pattern of “politicizing” intelligence throughout the election cycle and argued the CIA’s alleged findings, presented through it’s $600 million mouthpiece the Washington Post, were motivated by pressure placed on it by the Obama administration. He also pointed to the FBI’s counter conclusion which stated no evidence exists of Russian involvement or interference in the U.S. election.

BOLTON: It’s not at all clear to me just viewing this from the outside that this hacking into the DNC and the RNC computers was not a false flag operation. Let’s remember what FBI director James Comey said dealing with Hillary’s home brew server. He said we found no direct evidence of foreign intelligence service penetration, but given the nature of this, we didn’t expect to. Meaning, a really sophisticated foreign intelligence service would not leave any cyber fingerprints. And yet people say they did leave cyber fingerprints in the hacks regarding our election. So the question that has to be asked is why did the Russians run their smart intelligence service against Hillary’s server but their dumb intelligence services against the election?
