I guess I have to laugh at this, below.  Does Hillary Clinton or her corrupt cronies really think that Americans care who, exactly, who obtained and leaked the DNC emails?  And why should we believe that ONLY ONE individual (or group) had them?  There are probably plenty of DNC insiders who are disgusted with how bad a choice Clinton is, this year.  Might at least one of them leak a master-key (quite anonymously, we suppose) to people they figure would go ahead and use it?  No doubt Russia has the talent, and certainly the motivation, but so do many other people.  

I'm waiting, hoping, that they also release a few tens of thousands of "private" Hillary emails, the ones they've been rumoring on the media over the last few days.  
We'll learn a lot.  We first heard of her private server over a year ago, as I recall.  About that time, I first heard that the deleted emails had been chosen through a process of negative-elimination:  The emails that were saved were those that contained one or more of a number of keywords.  Lack those keywords, and the message wasn't saved.  It sounds like a system that her buddies designed to be able to eliminate everything they wanted to erase:  "Just remember not to enter any relevant keyword, and you know the message won't survive."  What were those keywords?  There should have been plenty of emails that were so short they didn't make the cut, even if they were indeed government business.  It is virtually certain, therefore, that this system was designed and known to Hillary Clinton virtually from the moment it was first used.
It's way to dangerous to elect a person, Hillary Clinton, who may have foolishly depended on having a system to delete messages, when it's possible those same messages were copied, and eventually found their way to unknown others.  The blackmail possibilities would be endless.
I would have thought that by now, somebody would have performed experiments on a mock-up of her server, perhaps the same hardware and software they used, to try to determine if somebody would have been able to break in.  Offer a $100,000 reward, or something like it.

Clinton campaign -- and some cyber experts -- say Russia is behind email release


        A top official with Hillary Clinton's campaign on Sunday
        accused the Russian government of orchestrating the release of
        damaging Democratic Party records in order to help the campaign of
        Republican Donald Trump -- and some cyber security experts in the U.S.
        and overseas agree.  The extraordinary charge came as some national
        security officials have been growing increasingly concerned about
        possible efforts by Russia to meddle in the election, according to
        several individuals familiar with the situation.
