Titled, “The Time I Got Recruited to Collude with the Russians“, Matt Tait, the CEO, and founder of Capital Alpha Security recounts how Mr. Smith contacted him about emails allegedly stolen from Sec. Hillary Clinton’s server (“Clinton’s private emails never materialized”). Mr. Smith alleged that someone from “the dark web” had contacted him about access to these emails.
“…Smith had not contacted me about the DNC hack, but rather about his conviction that Clinton’s private email server had been hacked—in his view almost certainly both by the Russian government and likely by multiple other hackers too—and his desire to ensure that the fruits of those hacks were exposed prior to the election. Over the course of a long phone call, he mentioned that he had been contacted by someone on the “Dark Web” who claimed to have a copy of emails from Secretary Clinton’s private server, and this was why he had contacted me; he wanted me to help validate whether or not the emails were genuine.
