Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
My memory is a little fuzzy on this because I didn’t write about this topic that much. But my suspicions from the start had been consistent with what I did eventually write about Guccifer 2.0.
I was very skeptical about Guccifer 2.0 firstly because it seemed too convenient. It worked too well in the DNC’s favor, and it was out of the blue and from far left field. It genuinely felt like somebody was asking us to accept free candy…at a bar that already served free pretzels and candy. It felt that weird because at the time, the DNC was already losing badly. And the information that he leaked seemed too mundane, as if Guccifer 2.0s payload was non damaging to the DNC. It was essentially “throwaway” info. That’s why I wasn’t interested in it.
Second, Guccifer2.0 had the mannerisms of a Redditor. So I assumed that it was a Redditor who was thirsty for attention. He seemed like a person who was trying too hard to fit in with millennials. A gen X-er pretending to be a millennial. So as time passed and we found out more about this Guccifer 2.0 guy, it turned out that many things connectable to Guccifer (ie. Crowdstrike, Stonetear, bleachbit) were actually Reddit-centric!
Let’s revisit this subject from the beginning. These were my thoughts when I first heard about Guccifer 2.0.
(Editor’s note: Doesn’t it suck to have a government that is objectively, undeniably, and irrevocably corrupt?)
It appeared very odd that the DNC would time their press releases so closely. It almost appeared as if they had planned all of this in advance, as if they wanted to release their opposition research of Trump, but in such a way that it takes it off their hands, in such a way that it makes the DNC look like the hapless victim of a crime.
And while I was searching through my archives this morning, I found this blog post that I wrote, and I mistakenly clicked on the top image. I forgot that I had originally linked the image directly to Guccifer 2.0s blog page, and surprise surprise, Guccifer 2.0s WordPress blog is still active! And it has a live Twitter feed on the side bar too, with updates from this morning!!
If you’re worried about security, make sure not to click on the top image as it directly links to Guccifer 2.0s WordPress blog. I didn’t know that I had directly linked the first image to Guccifer 2.0’s WordPress blog until it was too late.
So if Guccifer 2.0 was a “Russian Hacker,” and that he was indeed indicted by Rosenstein this morning, then who in the world is still maintaining Guccifer 2.0’s blog???!
Guccifer 2.0s most recent post is from Jan 12, 2017.
As time dragged on, more and more details emerged. It was discovered that Guccifer 2.0s hacked documents contained metadata showing that they had been transferred from one device to the other at speeds only possible if it had been done physically. Meaning that Guccifer 2.0 was at the DNC terminal physically. Meaning that he was a DNC staffer, or at the very least, that he was an American.
And then this happened. Reddit did a lot of digging and discovered that Crowdstrike, Fusion GPS, Rob Goldstone, and Christopher Steele were all connected.
A Redditor who went by the name of Stonetear was caught asking Reddit how to strip email addresses from an archive. This is where the whole Bleachbit scandal came from.
It was later discovered that Paul Combetta, the guy who was under investigation, was in fact Stonetear.
So there ya go. The DNC are still playing the false attribution game.
