Their tactics seem Hager-esque

Hager had the media doing his bidding.

What the Stone case in America has revealed looks suspiciously like what Hager did. Was Hager’s effort in 2014 a precursor? a trial run? The technique is exactly the same. Hager laundered stolen data, and the media revelled in it and got away with it. Dotcom/Hager are connected to Assange and Assange appeared in the “Moment of Truth.” quote.

[…] The charges stem from what prosecutors say were Stone’s efforts to conceal the nature of his discussions during the 2016 election about WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy group that released thousands of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

[…] The indictment says that by June and July 2016, Stone told senior Trump campaign officials that WikiLeaks had obtained documents that could be damaging to Clinton’s campaign.

Then later, after WikiLeaks released hacked material from the Democratic National Committee on July 22, 2016, the indictment says a senior Trump campaign official “was directed” to contact Stone about additional releases and “what other damaging information” WikiLeaks had “regarding the Clinton campaign”.

Stuff end quote.
