20. It's more assumption that hard fact at this point

 

Basically, in June Russian hackers were discovered to have hacked the DNC stealing all their Trump information and gaining access to all emails and chat traffic for a year. It's assumed that this comes from that hack. The Trump connection comes from Trump's ties to Russian mob and Putin, plus the timing of the leak just ahead of Clinton's VP nomination and convention.

21. Could be the Trump campaign. Or countless others. Doesn't change the fact that ....

 

... the DNC is not disputing the accuracy of the emails.

30. DWS made poor decisions.

She didn't do her job as promised by actively favoring one Democratic candidate over another. That's a no-no - you know it, and she owns it.

I am a Democrat because I believe what we stand for is rooted in caring for each other - we are better than Republicans. It's extremely disappointing when the chairwoman of MY party is exposed for doing something that shows a complete lack of integrity - just like a Republican.

Bottom line - I'm mad pissed there were emails to leak in the first place. You should be too if you care about the Democrat Party.

22. Sure, let's do that. Get involved, go to party meetings, do the daily work...

...make sure progressives are well-represented within the party. How many hours a month do you spend on party work? If it's zero, upping that number would help more than you think.

But in November it will be Hilllary vs the howler monkey. No amount of "cleaning up" between now and then will change that.

12. Wait a sec. We were told here at DU that Clinton's emails were exactly like Watergate.

 

Now it's this. From whence comes this sick fascination to try and make the Democratic Party the equivalent of the GOP?

The lengths some will go to make everything seem so simple is truly amazing.

16. How did the trump hackers get the DNC emails.

 

Not sure how the trump folks infiltrated the DNC emails. This is worst than watergate the fbi needs to get involved immediately with stopping the trump campaign from anymore dirty tricks.
Trump must have ties to Putin.

Wrong to publish internal emails

17. This reminds me more of Reagan's Iranian hostage shenanigans.

Only because it involves a foreign entity (and probably members of their government.) But, yeah. There are definitely aspects of Watergate present here, as well.

28. Al Giordano can stuff it. He's a jerk on Twitter and badly misinformed about this story.

He claims he's going to run against Bernie for Senate next time too. I'd like to watch him get his ass handed to him.
