Could WikiLeaks emails be fake? In order to make the case that they are fake one would have to overcome the following eight facts and problems.
1 – WikiLeaks has NEVER had to retract a story, document, or publication because it was found to be false or faked. WikiLeaks has exposed millions of documents from various governments for over a decade. They have no track record of doctoring anything, when one reads the emails for oneself, they are compelling.
2 – It is not a crime to invent fake documents and call them classified. The fact that US Government wants Assange for spreading classified intel (mostly stuff that was classified because it was embarrassing) by default means the US Government has confirmed that WikiLeaks documents are genuine.
3 – WikiLeaks is a foreign group, they are not Republicans or Democrats, their agenda is transparency with all governments….and that is the agenda of their donors. To risk losing credibility is to risk losing all funding from their crowd sourcing etc. They have every motivation to keep things on the up & up. Also worthy of note is that Anonymous is a foreign hacker group and they say that Hillary is corrupt.
4 – Most importantly, Hillary and her top staff, according to the State Department IG and FBI, were beyond careless and even contemptuous of national security and communications security protocols – their words not ours. In short, they were begging to get hacked and they did.
5 – Exactly ZERO of the dozens of reporters who were caught unethically coordinating with the Clinton campaign have come out and said the emails are fake.
6 – That said, we are talking about dozens of emails every day from the Clinton Campaign’s staff and the DNC – OVER THE COURSE OF YEARS. No one could manufacture hundreds of thousands fake emails and make it all accurate to the minute with the lives of hundreds of people. If it was fake it would be easy to debunk because no one could know that many details about so many people’s lives on a day to day basis over such a lengthy stretch of time.
7 – Information technology is reasonably secure, the complete emails headers, IT routing information etc, is included with each email at a tab at the top, all of which can be tracked and really is not fakable on a mass scale to this degree. The number of servers and routers that would have to be hacked to insert reams of false data makes this nigh impossible.
8 – Many of the emails in question with the Hillary Campaign, including some of the emails with Donna Brazile, used DKIM authentication which even the NSA might not be able to spoof.
DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email authentication method designed to detect email spoofing. It allows the receiver to check that an email claimed to come from a specific domain was indeed authorized by the owner of that domain. It is intended to prevent forged sender addresses in emails, a technique often used in phishing and email spam.
In technical terms, DKIM lets a domain associate its name with an email message by affixing a digital signature to it. Verification is carried out using the signer’s public key published in the DNS. A valid signature guarantees that some parts of the email (possibly including attachments) have not been modified since the signature was affixed.
