The Palmer Report
Alfa Bank is offering no evidence to back up this claim. Nor has it offered to explain why any hacker would do such a thing. But Alfa has taken the rather odd step of hiring a New York cybersecurity firm to investigate the supposed hackers who supposedly tried to create the false appearance that Alfa and Trump Tower were communicating with each other. Alfa’s belated attempt at covering up its communications with Trump Tower, by essentially claiming it’s being framed by some ill-defined bogey man with no clear motivation, serves no purpose if Alfa is innocent. Instead it’s the kind of thing you tend to do when you’re guilty, and you think your guilt is about to be firmly demonstrated, and you want to muddy the waters first so as to make it more difficult for your guilt to be demonstrated.
