The media claims Russia leaked the info to Wikileaks. Well, Wikileaks claims leaker is not Russian. The media refuses to listen to Wikileaks.
That’s right, in early November Julian Assange made it clear that the Democratic Party and Clinton staff emails did not come from the Russian government.
Assange: The Clinton camp has been able to project a neo-McCarthyist hysteria that Russia is responsible for everything. Hillary Clinton has stated multiple times, falsely, that 17 US intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications. That’s false – we can say that the Russian government is not the source,” Assange told the veteran Australian broadcaster as part of a 25-minute John Pilger Special, courtesy of Dartmouth Films.
A reporter very close to Assange wrote a report that Russia was not behind the DNC leaks. Wikileaks then retweeted the report.

So which is it? Does the media not believe Assange or are they just pretending not to so their story has more viability?
