1. Thanks I read about this on Bloomberg the other day but didn't post it

https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2017-08-10/why-some-u-s-ex-spies-don-t-buy-the-russia-story

It includes details about download speed which I had not heard before but it also took VIPS claims at face value.

The really interesting part to me was that it mentions that The Nation and Consortium News are now Russian disinformation distributors:

Unlike the "current and former intelligence officials" anonymously quoted in stories about the Trump-Russia scandal, VIPS members actually have names. But their findings and doubts are only being aired by non-mainstream publications that are easy to accuse of being channels for Russian disinformation. The Nation, Consortium News, ZeroHedge and other outlets have pointed to their findings that at least some of the DNC files were taken by an insider rather than by hackers, Russian or otherwise.

There is now another thread dealing with the changes in The Nation
