Wikileaks reveals leaked emails came from a Bernie Sander’s supporter frustrated with the DNC rigging the primaries for Hillary Clinton.
Wikileaks revealed the source of their leaked emails in an exclusive interview today with the U.K.’s Daily Mail revealing that U.S. intelligence reports that Russia hacked the emails to interfere with the U.S. elections to help Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton are absolutely wrong.
Murray’s claims have been corroborated with a second interview given to the U.K’s Express and another interview by the U.K.’s well-respected Guardian.
In the interview Wikileaks envoy Craig Murray and former British ambassador stated the he personally flew to the United States and was handed both the DNC emails and the Podesta emails.
Murray told the Daily Mail the emails came from DNC insider with legal access to the emails who had knowledge of the corruption within the Clinton Foundation leaked the emails because he was frustrated with the DNC rigging the Democratic primaries against Bernie Sanders.
Murray stated regardless of whether Russia hacked any emails or not the Wikileaks emails did not come from Russia.
‘Neither of the leaks came from the Russians,’ Murray said. ‘The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks.’
He said the motivation behind the leaks was ‘disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders.’
The new information may likely lead U.S. intelligence sources to the more information about the source of the leak given they will be able to cross-reference Murray’s flight records and cross-reference satellite and CCTV cameras during the time Murray was in Washington.
Murray told the Express that the person that who handed over the e-mails was from the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
Murray’s statements now officially corroborate prior claims initially made by Director Oliver Stone who suggested the leak was most likely an inside job in an interview with CNN three months ago.
Wikileaks is also retweeting confirming that Russia was not their source.

Although Wikileaks still is not officially naming their source Wikileaks is adding more fuel to the fire fueling the conspiracy that their source was suspiciously murdered DNC Staffer Seth Rich.
Murray told the Guardian:
Speaking to The Guardian, Mr Murray said: “I know who leaked them.
“I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.
“As Julian Assange has made crystal clear, the leaks did not come from the Russians. As I have explained countless times, they are not hacks, they are insider leaks – there is a major difference between the two.”
