The CIA and FBI have backtracked on their Russian narrative.
They are now admitting that maybe there was a whistle blower on the inside who leaked documents to WikiLeaks.
Pompeo recently stated:
“It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.”
Julian Assange has repeatedly said that the Russians were not his source. The media has ignored this because it did not fit with their “Russian hacking” narrative.
WikiLeaks has said it obtained the CIA information from former contractors who worked for U.S. intelligence. The CIA has not commented on the authenticity of the WikiLeaks disclosures or on the status of the investigation.
The recent ‘Vault 7’ document dump was embarrassing to the CIA. It delivered some punishing rounds of leaks.
The CIA, finally admitting it wasn’t the Russians, has now launched a manhunt for an insider who leaked the documents.
CBS News has learned that a manhunt is underway for a traitor inside the Central Intelligence Agency.
The CIA and FBI are conducting a joint investigation into one of the worst security breaches in CIA history, which exposed thousands of top-secret documents that described CIA tools used to penetrate smartphones, smart televisions and computer systems.
Sources familiar with the investigation say it is looking for an insider — either a CIA employee or contractor — who had physical access to the material. The agency has not said publicly when the material was taken or how it was stolen.
Much of the material was classified and stored in a highly secure section of the intelligence agency, but sources say hundreds of people would have had access to the material. Investigators are going through those names.
