It now is being reported that British intelligence tipped off their U.S. counterparts back in 2015.
According to the Guardian “UK intelligence gave US key tipoff about Russian hacking, report says”:
British intelligence reportedly provided a vital tipoff to the US in 2015 about the extent of Russian hacking on the presidential election.While it will never be pointed out by the corrupt establishment media, the question must be asked that if it was allegedly known in 2015 then why did the DNC get caught with their pants down around their ankles once the emails were dumped and why weren’t early efforts made to contain the damage?
The report on the UK’s involvement came after US intelligence agencies published an unclassified version of their finding that Vladimir Putin ordered a multi-pronged operation to interfere in the election in favour of Donald Trump.
The New York Times, citing “two people familiar with the conclusions” of the report, said British intelligence was “among the first” to raise the alarm in autumn 2015 that Moscow had hacked the computer servers of the Democratic National Committee.
The UK’s role suggests that the compromise of email exchanges among senior Democrats was spotted when voice intercepts, computer traffic or agents picked up content of the emails flowing towards Moscow.
Over the course the campaign, British officials were as alarmed as their US counterparts over the extent of contacts between Trump advisers and Moscow and by Trump’s consistently pro-Russian stance on a range of foreign policy issues.
It is important to remember that according to documents leaked by former government contractor Edward Snowden that the Brits regularly worked with the NSA Stasi to circumvent constitutional restrictions and in this case, to provide cover for the official conspiracy theory on why Mrs. Clinton lost the election.
ODNI Director James Clapper and CIA Director John Brennan’s report was a big nothingburger and the claims by the U.K. spooks will provide another nice talking point just in time for the Sunday morning shows where a hard sell will be made for chaining Trump and Putin at the hip and laying the groundwork for impeachment proceedings.
