The Nation reports Russia innocent of DNC hack

Aug. 10, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement calling for the office of the special counsel to be disbanded upon a report by the Nation’s Patrick Lawrence that former NSA officials have proven that the DNC emails disclosure of July 2016 was the work of a DNC insider, not Russian hackers:

“If the whole premise of the Mueller investigation, that Russia hacked the DNC emails interfering with the elections, is in fact false and it was a DNC insider as the Nation reports former NSA officials contending, there is simply no rationale for the special counsel to continue investigating the Russia angle. It is incumbent upon the Justice Department to determine and settle once and for all the true source of the DNC emails. The only prosecutions that can flow from that investigation must be of Obama administration officials who covered up the real facts surrounding the DNC emails, setting the nation off on this new red scare. If Mueller is unwilling to go where the evidence leads, in this case to the DNC itself and the Obama administration cover-up, then he is not fit to serve. In Mueller’s case, this is either obstruction or willful blindness.”
