The news that the FBI is opening a new case concerning Hillary Clinton’s emails has incited a national frenzy at the tail end of an electoral campaign that seems to have a new surprise every day. The fact that a news item of this magnitude is announced 10 days before the election has raised a thousand speculations about who might be the people really behind the scoop.
Taking a step back, in the past months there has been a barrage of revelations about the Democrats, all disclosed through email hacks against the party and its officials. Most of these revelations were disclosed by Clinton’s arch enemy, Julian Assange. One of the most authoritative voices who have spoken about all these revelations concerning the emails of the Democrats was Bill Binney.
Binney is an American analyst who, after spending 36 years working for the National Security Agency overseeing 6,000 employees, realized that he had helped to implement a mass control program at the expense of American citizens. He then decided to make it public by becoming a whistleblower. A few years before Edward Snowden, Binney had tried to object to George W. Bush’s mass surveillance programs and spoke publicly on occasions like the Hope hacker conference in New York, in a speech immortalized by Laura Poitras in the opening of her film Citizenfour.
