A Year Old, but Pertinent: Cyberanalyst George Eliason Claims that the “Fancy Bear” Who Hacked the DNC Server is Ukrainian Intelligence – In League with the Atlantic Council and Crowdstrike

This essay was posted at the Way of the Bern subreddit about a year ago. In light of Trump's recent comments to Zelensky referring to Crowdstrike and "the server", it takes on new pertinence:

Cyberanalyst George Eliason has written some intriguing blogs recently claiming that the "Fancy Bear" which hacked the DNC server in mid-2016 was in fact a branch of Ukrainian intelligence linked to the Atlantic Council and Crowdstrike. I invite you to have a go at one of his recent essays:

Since I am not very computer savvy and don’t know much about the world of hackers - added to the fact that Eliason's writing is too cute and convoluted - I have difficulty navigating Eliason’s thought. Nonetheless, here is what I can make of Eliasons’ claims, as supported by independent literature:

Russian hacker Konstantin Kozlovsky, in Moscow court filings, has claimed that he did the DNC hack – and can prove it, because he left some specific code on the DNC server.

Kozlovsky states that he did so by order of Dimitry Dokuchaev (formerly of the FSB, and currently in prison in Russia on treason charges) who works with the Russian traitor hacker group Shaltai Boltai.

https://www.newsweek.com/russian-hacker-stealing-clintons-emailshacking-... (Note that Newsweek's title is an overt lie.)

According to Eliason, Shaltai Boltai works in collaboration with the Ukrainian hacker group RUH8, a group of neo-Nazis (Privat Sektor) who are affiliated with Ukrainian intelligence. And RUH8 is allied with the Atlantic Council and Crowdstrike.

https://off-guardian.org/2018/06/25/who-is-fancy-bear-and-who-are-they-w...

Cyberexpert Jeffrey Carr has stated that RUH8 has the X-Agent malware which our intelligence community has erroneously claimed is possessed only by Russian intelligence, and used by "Fancy Bear".

https://medium.com/@jeffreyscarr/the-gru-ukraine-artillery-hack-that-may...

Eliason has concluded that RUH8 is Fancy Bear.

This might help explain why Adam Carter has determined that some of the malware found on the DNC server was compiled AFTER Crowdstrike was working on the DNC server – Crowdstrike was in collusion with Fancy Bear (RUH8).

In other words, Crowdstrike likely arranged for a hack by Ukrainian intelligence that they could then attribute to Russia.

As far as I can tell, none of this is pertinent to how Wikileaks obtained their DNC emails, which most likely were leaked.

How curious that our Deep State and the recent Mueller indictment have had nothing to say about Kozlovsky's confession - whom I tend to take seriously because he offers a simple way to confirm his claim. Also interesting that the FBI has shown no interest in looking at the DNC server to check whether Kozlovsky's code is there.

Postscript 11/6/2019: I have reason to suspect, as I have outlined previously, that the DNC was tipped off by US intelligence that someone on their staff was planning to leak their emails to Wikileaks, and that, in response, the DNC brought in Crowdstrike to fake a Russian hack so that the subsequent release of the emails could be blamed on Russia. Working with Ukrainian hackers who possessed the "Fancy Bear" malware which Crowdstrike could attribute to Russian intelligence would be a straightforward way to pull off this scam.

corruption came out and after reading the deposition by Shokin (?) I could not help but think that of course Ukraine is corrupt and of course the US not only wants to keep it that way but obviously makes sure it will stay that way. Burisma is probably the tip of the iceberg. I have not yet read the links, and will do that, but I find the scenario you've outlined to be pretty convincing. I've only heard the rumblings of rumor, from the snippets I've seen dismissed as RWNJ conspiracy theories, about DNC servers or whatever in Ukraine, but I wouldn't doubt if they are at this point. What a great place to hide American filthy laundry, made by and for the USA.

How the Ukraine war started. After we overthrew Ukraine's Russian friendly president Obama and every country involved in it thought that they would take their share of the spoils.

Democrats had the chance to impeach Trump for the bogus obstruction of justice charges that Mueller laid out in his report and many people thought that they would do it...but they kept waiting and waiting and it wasn't until Trump sent Barr to look into the origins of Russia Gate that Brennan and everyone involved in that got nervous and they really got nervous after they heard Trump wanted to look into their crimes in Ukraine. The Clintons, Obama, the Bidens, et all knew that something might come from it so they pushed for impeachment. Dumb play IMO because lots more info is coming out.

The bigger picture shows the obamma administration did major international crimes with the assistance of the Clinton regime in Ukraine. Follow the money.

Media is doing it's damndest to reconfigure the picture. Shedding the sleaze onto trumpet when it is biden behind it. Probably the clintonistas as well.

Worked with the russian scam for awhile. Not sure their feint is working this time.

@snoopydawg Faultlines is a good example of the fact that a conservative and a progressive can work productively together when their agenda is to get at the real truth of things.

Like Moynihan said: "You are entitled to your own opinions - but you're not entitled to your own facts!"

quid pro quo got his information about it from the New York Times! The other star witness who said that there wasn't any qpq has now reversed his testimony after further thinking about it and now says that there was. Hmm..I wonder who helped him rethink that?

Try this at home, kids:

Google "Caucus99percent" - it doesn't show up until you type in "Caucu", and then at the bottom of the list...

...but that's much better than DuckDuckGo, which doesn't suggest it at all short of you typing in "Caucus9".

* = Credit (served with a side of fist-shaking, maybe) is due to Alex Jones for his prescient snagging of that concept, term, and domain name.
