When facts and irrefutable data pertaining to the parties responsible for the hack are determined, I'll comment on it then.

Isn't that what most intelligent people do? Wait for facts and data before committing to an opinion?
I look at exactly who would benefit most in this. That's where I based my speculation on. And it is just that, speculation.

It comes as no surprise to me, as there is no question the USA has gone down this path for a very long time. A long list going back to Eisenhower and Iran.

I will always wonder how much intentional misinformation is being dispatched via these 'hacked' emails.

Are any of you bothered at all by the fact that this is even possible? I'm not saying that the DNC emails are somehow excused, but aren't we ignoring the real "Elephant in the room" here in ignoring the implications of a foreign government, a HOSTILE foreign government could be meddling in our elections?
The Obama admin meddled in Israel's so.....

The DNC desperately wants you to ignore the actual content in the Wikileaks email dump, and concentrate on this problem being something entirely different.

You appear to be a good little Democrat who is responding exactly in the manner they wish. So yay for that.

Again, you didn't comprehend what I wrote. Try again.

I comprehended it just fine. I simply prefer to avoid speculating whenever possible, and instead be thoughtful and patient and wait for facts before tossing darts. Apologies for assuming your political party. Carry on.

In case people are unaware - the Obama administration is trying to start a war with Russia. We are getting dangerously close. Dems need to wake up because it is their fearless leader who is the instigator.

I believe the opposite is true. Hillary, as SoS and Senator, has taken positions that are strong on defense and strong on military intervention overseas. Putin also has a grudge against Hillary because, right or wrong, he believes she played a role in propping up the anti-Russia regime that used to be in Ukraine. Hillary would maintain a strong US presence in NATO, maintaining the status quo. Putin does not want that.
