Can We Finally Put The Russian Hacking Fairy Tale To Rest?

It only appropriate that the most duplicitous, least honest, most fraudulent, most bogus public official in the history of the United States would conclude his presidency with one of the least-credible lies to ever be promoted. If you like your foreign attacks on US soil...a riot caused by a video that no one watched or even heard infinitum.

At Zero Hedge:

In keeping with the theme of providing no proof to the general public, the officials declined to describe the intelligence obtained about the involvement of a third-party in passing on leaked material to WikiLeaks, saying they did not want to reveal how the U.S. government had obtained the information. So just trust them, please.
The shift in the narrative is curious because as a reminder, officials had concluded "months earlier" that Russian intelligence agencies had directed the hacking, but had been less certain that they could prove Russia also had controlled the release of information damaging to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. It now appears that along with lack of evidence, the attention has shifted to an "intermediary" as being the responsible party .
In an interview with Fox News, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said he did not receive emails stolen from the DNC and top Hillary Clinton aide John Podesta from "a state party." Assange did not rule out the possibility that he got the material from a third party.
