Obama, Comey, U.S. 'Intelligence Hawks' See No 'Conspiracy' Between WikiLeaks and Russia

Summary of Disinformation

If you listen to Barack Obama, the head of the U.S. intelligence agency and James Comey, the FBI director, they say quite the opposite: they say that there is no trace of a conspiracy between WikiLeaks and Russia. The same is said by the most hawkish people in the U.S. intelligence community.

Disproof

The interview with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was conducted in English and broadcast with a Russian translation voiced over of the original conversation. The disinformation was delivered in Russian language voice-over. Polygraph.info translated the quote back into English from the Russian interpretation of Assange’s words for the state TV audience. The U.S. top officials Assange claims have denied a Russia-WikiLeaks link either never spoke publicly on the topic or said U.S. intelligence agencies have established a connection.
