In an interview on CNN Tuesday night, filmmaker Oliver Stone told interviewer Christiane Amanpour that the high-profile hacking attack against the Democratic National Committee earlier this summer was “probably an inside job” and not the work of Russia, as some intelligence services have claimed.
“What do you make of the use of Russia in this election, including Russia being accused and suspected of hacking in to the American political system and potentially subverting the election process in the United States?” Amanpour asked Stone.
“I think it’s a great fiction. It serves a purpose to disguise what’s really going on,” the three-time Oscar-winning director replied. “The intelligence experts that I’ve talked to have indicated to me that it’s probably an inside job.”
