Pompeo believes Russia is behind the Pentagon hack


Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that in the early stages of the investigation into the massive hacking of US government agencies, Russian involvement was revealed.

"We can say pretty clearly that it was the Russians that engaged in this activity," Pompeo said on the "Mark Levin Show" on Friday night.

Despite the fact that US President Donald Trump did not speak out on this incident, Mike Pompeo decided to personally stir up anti-Russian sentiment among Americans before the inauguration of Joe Biden next month.

“We’re still unpacking precisely what it is, and I’m sure some of it will remain classified,” Pompeo, who formerly headed the CIA, told Levin, according to a transcript of the interview released by the State Department. “But suffice it to say there was a significant effort to use a piece of third-party software to essentially embed code inside the US government systems and it now appears systems of private companies and companies and governments across the world as well.”

To date, no proof of anyone's guilt has been provided. As usual, American officials continue to play in public, hiding all evidence.

In his interview, Pompeo also pointed out that the Chinese Communist Party is still considered the main enemy of the United States.

“In many cases, you see American media is beholden to the Chinese Communist Party.  Big media empires have operations, right?  It’s 1.4 billion people in China and they want to serve that market, so they want to sell their movies or their streaming products there, and so they often bend a knee, kowtow to them.  It’s unfortunate.  So that means their news organizations oftentimes too are reluctant to cover these transgressions from China and worse, Mark, sometimes they actually mouth Chinese propaganda,” Pompeo said.
