The Forensicator's analysis has opened eyes, got people asking questions and several people have been replicating/validating (and trying to challenge) the findings. This, in turn, has given people more confidence on this topic..
Some recent videos covering this have come from H. A. Goodman and Tim Black (who discuss the findings on "No Sell Outs") as well as Rick Amato's Politics & Profit.
The site that first broke the news was, of course, Disobedient Media, an independent media outlet I personally witnessed have several staff work extremely hard, some losing sleep on multiple nights, just to make sure their reporting was concise and valid. - I can't thank them enough for giving Forensicator's analysis the coverage it deserved and perservering with a technical analysis that was essential for them to understand in order to report on it properly.
Some sites ran with it as-is and gave attribution without adding spin or unrelated topics into the equation. ZeroHedge was a good example of doing that well.
Unfortunately, there were many versions of the story that added partisan spin or engaged in baseless speculation about Seth Rich despite us cautioning against it!. - We cautioned against it for a good reason and by not heeding our advice, those that engaged in it did the opposite of helping get justice for Seth.

Introducing: The Forensicator and the Digital Forensic Analysis of Guccifer 2's NGP-VAN Archive
As some of you may know, over the past few weeks I've been in contact with someone who has been working on a digital forensics analysis of the NGP-VAN archive that was released by Guccifer 2.0 in September of 2016.
It's now time to introduce you to the site where you can find that analysis.
For those that can, please validate (or challenge, where relevant) the findings.
The author is keen to get feedback on their efforts so far..

New Article Published
New article out: "The Washington Post Article on the DNC Hack - Fact or Fiction?"
Yesterday, I also made a statement asserting that Shawn Henry and Dmitri Alperovitch are very likely behind Guccifer 2.0 or are connected to those behind the persona. - I've been sat with their names for over 2 months and considering the Washington Post article analyzed in the article above, it's hard, from my perspective and with all the research I've done over the last 6 months to see how it could have really been carried out by anyone else.
I'm currently working on an article covering deception, propaganda, manipulation & perception management (titled "Information Warfare & The Perception Management Industry"), once this is published, I will move on to publishing another new article in relation to further evidence that has been discovered.

New Disobedient Media Article
In light of some very fair observations made in the article highlighted above, I have made some changes to the "Evidence of Intent" articles and references to them across the site so that the titles are now more specific to the scope of what the evidence there actually covers.
I've published 2 new articles, a sanity check on some of the chaos surrounding Guccifer 2.0 & an attempt to explain in plain English the processes Guccifer 2 used to create his first batch of files.
"New" NGP-VAN Files?!
The "new" NGP-VAN archive going around - seems to be bloated by 400Mb through duplication (there are folders and archives of the same content within the new archive).
I did wonder if there was anything I might have missed so I also used UltraCompare on the two different directories (with all archives extracted) and that only resulted in discovery of the 4 unique files (the 'lock' files I'd mentioned on Twitter recently) which account for 367 bytes of the 400Mb increase.
NOTE: I was unaware of the source of this new archive until after I'd already initially inspected and commented on it. I will continue to refrain from offering any public opinion on the source and will just focus on information.
Relevant PSA: If you find a USB stick (as was claimed regarding the source of the new archive), consider the risks of malware. If you find it conveniently where you're the most likely person to discover it (eg. discarded on your driveway, outside your house, etc), be weary that it could have malware on it with you as the intended victim, it's a common method of infiltration because of human nature, people are curious and lot of people end up plugging it in (often to their main computer) to have a sneak peek at what's on it.

Guccifer 2 and the Podesta Emails
Having checked through Guccifer 2's first forty documents allegedly hacked from the DNC, @jimmysllama has discovered that there may be a problem with the premise they're from the DNC. - For more details check out the post at: https://jimmysllama.com/2017/05/28/9867/
Guccifer 2.0, The DCCC Voter Turnout Model & Aaron Nevins - More DM Manipulations!?
Hannibal Moot of BullTruth magazine has been applying some well-placed skepticism to more DMs that have been published recently. - It turns out that the HelloFLA DMs exhibit the exact same anomaly that applied to Robbin Young's DMs.
The full series so far:
UPDATE: I've attempted to contact HelloFLA via DMs to inquire about the anomaly observed, about the 250Mb and 2.5Gb discrepancies in reporting (250Mb was what he'd reported in the past but the reports that came out asynchronously across the MSM recently state 2.5Gb) & also about the exclusivity of the data in the DCCC documents (as it looks like most of it was based on data already available to both parties, so the notion of the turnout model, etc. being worth millions is highly questionable). (It's also far more relevant to congressional races than to the general election).

If someone throws a name at you as being an identity behind Guccifer 2.0, ask whether they would have had access and the capabilities demonstrated - not many will fit all 3.
