    Jailed Russian says he hacked DNC on Kremlinís orders and can prove it

    WASHINGTON A jailed Russian who says he hacked into the Democratic National Committee computers on the Kremlin’s orders to steal emails released during the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign now claims he left behind a data signature to prove his assertion.

    In an interview with Russia’s RAIN television channel made public Wednesday, Konstantin Kozlovsky provided further details about what he said was a hacking operation led by the Russian intelligence agency known by its initials FSB. Among them, Kozlovsky said he worked with the FSB to develop computer viruses that were first tested on large, unsuspecting Russian companies, such as the oil giant Rosneft, later turning them loose on multinational corporations.
    Koslovsky is jailed in Russia for treason, along with stealing 50 million from Russian bank accounts, and has also been indicted in the United States. The treason charge could very well be that, because he was afraid that his handlers would turn on him, he left a signature on the DNC server, in a .dat file, which identifies him and the Russian FSB as the hackers. If he did leave this signature, it would be the smoking gun. This signature could not have been faked by anybody, because it includes Koslovsky's Russian passport number, along with the number of his visa to the Carribbean.

    Still would like to understand how the hack remotely transmitted the data at such high speeds.

    I don't think a guy in a Russian prison is going to sing this tune unless he was told to. To do it on his own exposes him to accidental death by meteorite.

    It's well known that Russia interfered with the election of 2016. This should prove it once more.

    The smoking gun to what? That the DNC suffers such internal corruption that it coming to light in part cost them the election? This is just part of the Hillary scapegoat story. The woman sucks. She's corrupt. She was a bad candidate.

    Yes, Hillary was a bad and crooked candidate, but collusion with the enemy is treason.

    I would like to know how he can prove digital signatures on systems that the FBI never had and that have since been destroyed. I wonder if he plans to claim that the Russian metadata is his?

    Either way, the more likely explanation is that he wants to make an international case out of his imprisonment in hopes it saves him from execution.

    "Well known" meaning there exists popular claims to that end?

    Russians and others try to interfere with our elections all the time as we do theirs.

    Bill Clinton did this and more in Yugoslavia.

    Sources: CIA gets go-ahead to destabilize Yugoslavia

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Clinton has authorized the Central Intelligence Agency to look for ways to destabilize the government of Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, sources tell CNN.

    The authorization comes in the form of a "finding," a highly classified document authorizing covert operations.

    While it is not clear if any of the ideas being examined have actually be put into effect, or will be, Newsweek magazine says the tactic calls for:

    The use of computer hackers to attack Milosevic's international bank accounts.

    A sabotage campaign to erode his public support. It would include such tricks as cutting telephone lines, fouling gasoline reserves and pilfering food supplies.

    Yup, just like they did in every other election for the past 50+ years.
