Guccifer 2.0, Hacker of DNC Found Operating from Russian Intelligence Agency


U.S investigators recently found hacker Guccifer 2.0 the person claiming responsibility of the hack into Democratic National Committee server at the time of 2016 election as disclosing that he operated on behalf of Russian intelligence. The hacker operated from Moscow as the investigators were able to find because he inadvertently didn't activate certain service of VPN (virtual private networking) which would have hidden his geographical position prior to logging on.


It appears he overlooked using VPN to one Moscow situated building which's GRU's headquarters the military intelligence organization of Russia. That could suggest a lot of things for the probe by Robert Mueller, Special Counsel, into Russia's interference as also probable involvement in Trump's campaign. Incidentally, Roger Stone campaign adviser for Trump recently acknowledged he was in touch with Guccifer 2.0 via the direct messaging facility on Twitter during the election year. Originally FBI was investigating the Guccifer 2.0 case, but now Mueller is conducting the investigation, reports Daily Beast. Marketwatch.com posted this, March 22, 2018.


According to Daily Beast, Guccifer 2.0 hacker's identity as one GRU officer was easily obtained the person who operated from the organization's HQ located at Grizodubovoy Street in Moscow.


While Mueller's office wouldn't remark about this story, knowledge about Guccifer 2.0 working out of the biggest foreign intelligence organization of Russia is likely to go beyond Kremlin while take the investigation further up to Trump. Erstwhile Federal Bureau of Investigation boss Robert Mueller is leading the probe of the Guccifer case after taking it over as well as bringing the agents of FBI that spent time and resources for tracking the sought after individual into his team.


Trump has disagreed to the argument that he conspired with Russia alternatively the reverse happened such as Russia giving help to up his position in the election campaign. However, Daily Beast linking Guccifer 2.0 with the government of Russia and the country's military intelligence seems as additional evidence of Russia supporting Trump in place of Clinton. In the opinion of Guccifer 2.0, the intercepted account related to him was a fake rather the DNC created it for backing one false-flag maneuver involving Russia.
