Russian hacker claims FBI offered him citizenship and a new life if he would confess to hacking Podesta emails on behalf of Putin and Trump

Article:


According to a report in Newsweek by Tom O’Connor, a Russian hacker who had been detained in Prague at the request of US authorities, was visited multiple times by FBI agents, who pressed him to confess to hacking the Podesta emails at the behest of Putin, and to help Trump. They allegedly (and unsuccessfully) offered generous inducements, to say the least.

Yevgeniy Nikulin, 29, has found himself in the middle of an international dispute between Washington and Moscow, at the very center of which lies U.S. allegations that Russia sponsored a series of hacks targeting Democratic Party candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in favor of Republican candidate and current President Donald Trump. On October 5, 2016, days before U.S. intelligence publicly accused Russia of endorsing an infiltration of Democratic Party officials' emails, Nikulin was arrested in Prague at the request of the U.S. on separate hacking charges. Now, Nikulin claims U.S. authorities tried to pin the email scandal on him.

Nikulin was detained in the Czech Republic for allegedly hacking the servers of major sites LinkedIn, Dropbox and Formspring between 2012 and 2013. While awaiting trial, he claims in an undated letter reportedly given to U.S. Russian-language news site Nastoyashchoe Vremya by Nikulin's lawyer, Martin Sadilek, that the FBI visited him at least a couple of times, offering to drop the charges and grant him U.S. citizenship as well as cash and an apartment in the U.S. if the Russian national confessed to participating in the 2016 hacks of Clinton campaign chief John Podesta's emails in July.

Jeez, what amateurs at the FBI.

An apartment. Really? An Apartment???

Make it at least a 2,000+ sq. ft ranch house on 5 acres or so, and I personally know AT LEAST a dozen Czech and Romanian hackers that will confess to whatever.

First of all, Podesta's email was not hacked. He fell for a phishing scheme and gave them his password. Why do they keep changing the story?

The big lie, told often enough becomes the "truth" to the masses.

Because the truth shows him up for the complete clueless idiot he is. The car just ran him down deliberately, not, the idiot was looking at his phone and stepped off the curb, against the crossing light, right in front of it. Derpity do dah!

Will you admit Podesta fell for a fishing scheme? That he was not hacked?

Yeahhhh I would never believe this story. You see I would instead believe that Trump is in cahoots for the Russians! Yeah that's the ticket. Remember Hitlery only came out with the theory of Trumps collusion AFTER she lost the election but hey remember it was obvious before then too.
