I’m going to dig out my tinfoil hat and indulge in a little conspiracy theorizing. Issue One: the motivation behind the leaked DNC emails. Factoid: Russia is widely seen as the email hacker. They presumably passed them on to WikiLeaks. Speculation: There are those on the far left who wouldn’t mind seeing a Trump victory, the idea being it takes a shit storm to create a progressive utopia. The Trump-Putin bromance has been widely reported. Not so widely known is the role Russian oligarchs have played in bankrolling many of Trump’s business ventures. Bottom Line: Beware of leakers bearing gifts.
