There’s a major inconsistency in the origin story of Russiagate: the hacking of the DNC by Guccifer 2.0, and the transferring of those emails to Wikileaks, which are claimed to be the emails published July 22nd, 2016.
There are several issues with the timeline Mueller has given. Assange announced on June 12th, 2016 that Wikileaks would be publishing bombshell material that summer relating to Hillary Clinton.
Guccifer 2.0 in his first blog post June 14th, 2016 claimed to have already given the DNC emails to Wikileaks.
However, Mueller ignored both of these public statements, and claims that Wikileaks only initiated contact June 22nd, 2016.
And Mueller further claims that it was only after several unanswered requests by Wikileaks that Guccifer 2.0 finally sent the DNC emails July 14th, and WikiLeaks acknowledged receipt July 18th, 2016, a mere four days before their blockbuster July 22nd, 2016 publication of thousands of DNC emails.
We now know the initial documents Guccifer 2.0 released on his WordPress blog actually came from John Podesta’s email inbox, not from the DNC employees inboxes that make up the WikiLeaks release.
Additionally, Shawn Henry of Crowdstrike admitted to the House Committee investigating the hack that they had no evidence of Russian exfiltration of the emails.
