Wasserman Got Smart, Finally

Outgoing Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz won't open her party's convention, following a chaotic scene earlier in the day at a meeting of Florida Democratic delegates where critics and Bernie Sanders supporters loudly jeered at the congresswoman.

"I have decided that in the interest of making sure that we can start the Democratic convention on a high note that I am not going to gavel in the convention," Wasserman Schultz told the Sun Sentinel newspaper in an interview.
Good move, for the last thing the Dems want is to be compared unfavorably to the Trump Shitstorm of a convention.

I'm not opposed to the idea that it was the KGB FSB or the GRU that hacked into the DNC's servers and stole their emails in order to help Trump. But it is a hell of a claim and the proof for that needs to be made public. Maybe the Feebies will find something.

Or Guccifer 2... Probably the right answer.

Putin does have a massive grudge against Hillary from when he blamed her for the giant protests against him running for a third term.

I'm wondering if there's anything like 'bankruptcy' that Trump's Russian financiers would put up with.

More likely, Trump will willingly torpedo NATO to erase his Russian debt.

Motherboard has a good rundown of the evidence pointing toward Russia. I'm no expert, but it seems convincing to me. http://motherboard.vice.com/read/all-signs-point-to-russia-being-behind-the-dnc-hack

why would the Ruskies want to be seen as the responsible party? because they'd have to leave breadcrumbs back to themselves intentionally... trying to track a hack back to point of origin and proving it is hard even if it's scriptkiddies doing the hack... if the hacker is a state actor as sophisticated as Russia or China? if we could do provable backtracking would Obama have begged the Chinese to please stop crypto spying, pretty please? looks to me like a fear smear against Trump

Guccifer 2 seems to be a Russian sockpuppet.
