Guccifer 2.0 Hacker Denies CIA Claims of Russian Connections
For the first time since November, the hacker, or hackers, known as Guccifer 2.0, came out of hiding by posting a tweet, which read:

“Here I am again, my friends! Check my new post about FBI/DHS/NSA reports and their fake evidence.”

Guccifer 2.0’s report, (1) published on their own WordPress site, is titled “Here I am Again, My Friends”. The article relates to alleged “fake news” of the U.S. intelligence agencies claiming Guccifer 2.0 has ties with Russia.

Referring to the accusations as being a “crude fake”, Guccifer 2.0 says they have no relation to the Russian government and the so-called technical evidence the reports claiming the hacker is associated with Russia, fails to stand up to scrutiny.




Hacks Motivated By Personal Politics

Guccifer 2.0 says he/she/they (we’re not quite sure!) was acting in accordance with their personal political views and beliefs. According to the hacker, any IT professional would be able to see that the malware mentioned in the report linking Guccifer 2.0 to the attack, was deliberately inserted into the report to make it sound more plausible.

The hackers continue that they had used a different method to hack into the DNC system, through a vulnerability they found in the NGP VAN software installed in the DNC network.

“It’s obvious that the intelligence agencies are deliberately falsifying evidence. In my opinion, they’re playing into the hands of the Democrats who are trying to blame foreign actors for their failure,” writes Guccifer 2.0.

It’s no secret that the U.S. intelligence agencies believe the hacks, which resulted in embarrassing leaks about the Democratic Party during the 2016 Presidential Election, were linked to a mysterious hacker or hacking entity that goes by the name of Guccifer 2.0.

Numerous news outlets published reports about a hacker that goes by the pseudonym of Guccifer 2.0 having ties with the leaked DNC documents. According to many of the reports, the hacker leaked documents, memos and passwords from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

Unverified Assertions of Anonymous Officials

In a (2) report published in August 2016, Top Secret Writers wrote about the DNC hacks and referred to Guccifer 2.0 as a “Russian hacker.”

An article (3) about Guccifer 2.0 leaking internal Democratic Party documents, the IB Times notes how some believe Guccifer 2.0 is a “propaganda persona maintained by the Russia intelligence.”

Though according to Guccifer, which had been in hiding for some time, they have no relationship with Russia.
While U.S. intelligence may be convinced that Russia is involved with the hacking of the DNC, others are less convinced.

Writing for (4) The Intercept, Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who was of course implicated with the Edward Snowden revelations, spoke of how the assertions leaked in the Washington Post that Russia had intervened in the 2016 election to help Trump secure presidency victory over Clinton, are based on “unverified assertions of anonymous officials and are no substitute for evidence.”

No One Has Proven the Claim

The Intercept wrote a (5) further article claiming there is not sufficient evidence that Russia hacked the DNC.

“It certainly remains plausible that Russians hacked the DNC, and remains plausible that Russia itself ordered it. But the refrain of Russian attribution has been repeated so regularly and so emphatically that it’s become easy to forget that no one has ever truly proven the claim,” writes The Intercept.

Supporting the notion that there is no evidence to prove Russia’s implication with the DNC hacks, is Guccifer 2.0’s recent words, that their ties with Russia are nothing but a “crude fake.”
