>> [Deniability] for what?

Suppose someone the NSA are not supposed to mess with was messed with using one of these tools/vulnerabilities during the period this compromise of their systems is supposed to have taken place. Further, suppose that this messing is about to be exposed -- or even has already been exposed, in less public circles. Do you still not see the deniability this #Shadowbrokers business creates?
