Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Big Fat Compendium Of Russiagate Debunkery - Hacker Noon -
NSA Director Mike Rogers asserted that his agency "watched" Russia hack the French election infrastructure. For the last month establishment media outlets and establishment loyalists have been repeating this allegation as unquestionable fact, in the exact same way they repeat the Russian hacking narrative of the 2016 US elections as an unquestionable fact. And yet they were all dead wrong. Guillaume Poupard, the head of France's cyber security agency, told the Associated Press that there was "no trace" of Russian meddling and that the hack of the Macron campaign "was so generic and simple that it could have been practically anyone."

Links in the original. There are some dubious points before this for example Snowden's assertion that the NSA is absolutely certain to have evidence proving Russian involvement if there exists such evidence (How? suppose they track the hackers to an internet cafe in front of the Kremlin. Does that prove without a doubt that the Russian government is involved?), but this is spot on.
