Roger Stone admits interactions with HACKER ‘Guccifer’ who gave DNC intel to Wikileaks

Trump’s scummy lackey Roger Stone admitted that he had some short interactions with the hacker “Guccifer 2.0,” which U.S. intelligence agencies says is linked to the Russian government.

Watch below:

But Stone says that the interactions were totally innocuous, so much so that he completely forgot about them.

Stone told Business Insider in an email late Thursday night that he had a private conversation on Twitter with the person, nicknamed “Guccifer 2.0,” and that the interaction was so “brief and banal, I had forgotten it.”

“Not exactly 007 stuff even if Gruccifer 2.0 [sic] was working for the Russkies,” Stone said. “Meaningless.”

The Business Insider explains why many believe Guccifer 2.0 was connected to the Russian government:

Guccifer 2.0 has said that they targeted Democrats in the heat of the election last summer. One such cyberattack hit the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, leading to the release of email addresses and phone numbers belonging to nearly 200 Democratic congressional members on August 12, The Wall Street Journal reported at the time.

Guccifer 2.0 has denied having any links to Russia. But digital fingerprints were left on the hacks that led the US intelligence community — as well as several private cybersecurity firms — to conclude that the cyberattacks were largely, if not entirely, carried out by two Russian intelligence groups.

Piecing together Guccifer’s comments and cyber trails, experts soon began to agree that the self-proclaimed hacker was either a poser or the product of a Russian disinformation campaign. ThreatConnect, a cyber-security firm based in Arlington, Virginia, concluded that Guccifer 2.0 had been using the Russian-based Virtual Private Network service, Elite VPN, to secure their communications.

Stone also points out that the interactions were AFTER the hacking happened, but those are only the ones he’s admitted to. AND, the reason Guccifer was reaching out to him was to call him a “great man” for – and I’m not joking about this – defending the Russians in an article on Breitbart that cited Guccifer’s hacking. So. Yeahhhh.

So people are freaking out:

This dude on MSNBC makes the most exaggerated case against Roger Stone, saying “EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE SUBPOENAED!!”

I mean, Stone is right, they are pretty innocuous. Even when Guccifer tells him that he’d be honored to do something to help Stone.

Now, this is true:

But, I’m pretty sure Podesta was hacked LONG before this. Did they hack him and then think about not releasing it and then Stone came along and the Russians were like, “oh ok, just for you, we release it, da?!” Yeah no. Duh.

So, as much as I despise Roger Stone, who is as scummy as they come, I’m not sure there’s anything here. But that doesn’t mean we can’t keep looking and asking questions….
