    Two interesting implications from Ray McGovern’s comments.

    1) Assuming the Marble framework was only used in the Guccifer 2.0 “hacks” shouldn’t it be possible to prove that by comparing the original data from the thumb drive given to Wikileaks with the Guccifer 2.0 data?

    2) Especially if Wikileaks has the technical fingerprints of the Marble Framework as part of the Vault 7 data they got to trace its use in the Guccifer 2.0 data. A smoking gun proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that Russiagate was a hoax created by the U.S. government. I would hope VIPS would be able to do this.

    I suspect that if Assange is freed we will be able to obtain that evidence (because if anyone outside of the NSA or CIA knows how Marble works it’s probably him) and finally put Russiagate to bed forever. And it would discredit the U.S. national security state for decades, so that no one, including Americans would trust it, a great benefit to peace and freedom.

    Great discussions, found almost nowhere else. As to that, I stumbled across an article (https (colon)//www (dot) techdirt (dot) com/articles/20170814/11490537992/stories-claiming-dnc-hack-was-inside-job-rely-heavily-stupid-conversion-error-no-forensic-expert-would-make.shtml) that seems to accuse those pushing back on the Russian hacking of stupid technical errors (i.e., confusing bits with bytes in transmission speed), with comments that they failed to take into account possible transmission to a nearby server for later re-transmission to Russia. If this type of criticism has been heard and authoritatively addressed by McGovern, Binney or others, would appreciate a link for my piece of mind.

    After reading the International Jurists letter I am left in no doubt that the rule of law in the UK has been deliberatly undermined both by the judiciary and politicians to politicise and ensure the prosecution of a journalist and publisher Julian Assange who has been declared “an enemy of the state” by the de facto power broker in the decrepit hollowed out democracies of the UK and US the Orwellian construct of the omnipotent US National Security State and its UK junior counterpart. If they succeed history warns us that many other victims will follow.
