Macedonia, John Podesta, Intelligence Services discussed on Recode Decode, hosted by Kara Swisher - BONUS Hillary Clinton, former U.S. Secretary of State (Code Conference 2017)


In the last couple of decades and then increasingly you know are watching cyber attacks and they are stealing vast amounts of information and a lot of the information they've stolen they've used for internal purposes to affect markets to affect the intelligence services etcetera so this was different because they went public and they were conveying this weaponized information and the content of it and they were running there's all these stories about guys over in macedonia who are running these fake news sites and i you know i've seen them now and you you sit there and it looks like a sort of low level cnn operation work ethic newspeak orrick baked in regard like a fake newspaper and so the russians in my opinion and based on the intel encounter and tell people i've talked to could not have known how best to weaponized that information unless they had been guided and here's here's either by americans guided by americans and guided by people who ed polling data now let me just finish because this is the second and third step so we know that they they did that we understand it best example so within one hour one hour of the access hollywood tapes being leaked within one hour the russians a say wikileaks same thing dumped the john podesta's emails now if you've ever read the john podesta emails they are anodyne to boredom but there we had him yeah but they were they were at forgive him for what he said about you again.
