A Russian man wanted by the Justice Department on charges connected to hacking U.S. companies now claims the FBI offered him immunity in exchange for accepting responsibility for cyberattacks targeting former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Yevgeny Nikulin, the alleged hacker, laid the claim to Russian media Thursday in a letter sent from a Czech Republic prison cell amid an international extradition battle currently underway between Washington and Moscow.
FBI agents promised Mr. Nikulin money, American citizenship and a free apartment for taking the fall over hacking Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, he alleged in a letter published Thursday by Nastoyashchoe Vremya, a Russian-language website.
“[They told me:] you will have to confess to breaking into Clinton’s inbox for [President Trump] on behalf of [Russian President Vladimir Putin],” Mr. Nikulin wrote, as translated by The Moscow Times.
“He was offered to falsely testify that he was cooperating in the attack on the Democratic Party,” defense attorney Martin Sadilek said Thursday, the Associated Press reported.
The FBI declined to comment.
A Russian man detained on hacking charges has told reporters that he was pressured to confess to a cyberattack on former U.S. Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton.
Yevgeny Nikulin was arrested in Oct. 5, 2016 in the Czech Republic at the request of U.S. authorities.
He stands accused of hacking the servers of several U.S. Companies, including LinkedIn and DropBox between 2012 and 2013.
Russia has also requested Nikulin’s extradition, accusing him of stealing money from online WebMoney accounts.

“The US-Israeli-UK alliance (the real axis of evil) alone threatens world stability, peace, and perhaps survival” ~ Stephen Lendman
The TRUE AXIS OF EVIL IS ISREAL/SAUDI ARABIA/USA! Isreal holds the USA hostage to fight all of it’s war. Anyone ever notice Isreal NEVER GET’S ATTACKED, EVER? We in the USA continue to live in poverty and slums while our sons and daughters are being maimed, disfigured, killed, set home with severe PTSD and NO access to Healthcare.
Meanwhile Isrealis continue to get richer from all the money we are giving to them! They never have to worry about their children being killed, or loosing limbs, or living in squalor! WE HATE THE ISREALI SANTANIC FAKE FUCKING JEWS who are working for Lucifer! We WANT THEM ALL TO BE KILLED! America is sick of killing and being killed for these batshit psychos! Jesus Christ can’t come back soon enough, or quick enough!
It has worked so many times before.
hmm if the fbi is doing this, then the fbi did the hack or some other nefarious US government or ISRAELI agency!
Sad to think that this is a totally believable story. We all know that Seth Rich was the DNC staffer that released the DNC Emails.
