Regardless of whether Russia hacked DNC, Russia was not needed to hack DNC. Whatever technology Russia has, America has and more. RNC could have hired domestic hackers to hack DNC if they wanted to do so.
What does that point even mean?
You know, we have a country here and it is supposed to represent the people and not be influenced by cheating or fraud, especially not by a foreign nation.
I can't get over how so many people have so little respect for our own country
NIE: We judge that Iraq has continued its weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs in defiance of UN resolutions and restrictions. Baghdad has chemical and biological weapons as well as missiles with ranges in excess of UN restrictions; if left unchecked, it probably will have a nuclear weapon during this decade.

That's really funny.
Because even trump had to admit it was the Russians. Hey I expect you guys to fall in line with the story now that trump has. Whatever your emperor says you agree with. Even if it conflicts with his previous views or words.

Moon of Alabama has a couple pieces up on the subject that are well worth the read . His latest has this bit
Kevin Rothrock (Moscow Times): I cannot believe my eyes. Is this really part of the US government's intelligence case? I'll say it: the declassified USG report "Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections" is an embarrassment. Susan Hennessey (Lawfare, Brookings): The unclassified report is underwhelming at best. There is essentially no new information for those who have been paying attention. Bill Neely (NBCNews): Lots of key judgements but not many key facts & no open proof in US Intell. report into alleged Russian hacking. Stephen Hayes (Weekly Standard): The intel report on Russia is little more than a collection of assertions. Understand protecting sources/methods, but it's weak. Julia Ioffe (The Atlantic): It's hard to tell if the thinness of the #hacking report is because the proof is qualified, or because the proof doesn't exist. @JeffreyGoldberg Have to say, though, I'm hearing from a lot of Russia watchers who are very skeptical of the report. None like Putin/Trump. When you lost even Julia Ioffe on your anti-Russian issue ... Clapper as DNI and Brennan as CIA chief should have been fired years ago. They will both be gone by January 20. The Intelligence Community will remember them as the chief-authors of this devastating failure.
The other piece "New Intelligence Report Adds No Evidence Of "Russian Hacking" (Updated)" better addresses the technical side and explains that the FBI had to use the IT firm hired to make a report that the FBI used . Its easy to imagine that that hell hole Clinton kabal didnt want any more prying eyes then was necessary
Three cases of paper releases have to be differentiated: The emails from Clinton's private basement mail-server were released by the State Department after various FOIA requests. Emails from Clinton's campaign chief John Podesta were released after someone "spear phished" his Gmail password and got access to his mail box. Such spear phishing - sending an email which asks to change one's password on a faked login page - happens thousands of times each day. Naturally prominent people with publicly widely known addresses are the preferred targets of such stunts. This has nothing to do with real hacking which defeats a system's defense by manipulating computer code. The Democratic National Council was probably hacked. "Probably" because it is still quite possible that a (murdered?) insider leaked the DNC emails and the hacking "evidence" is made up to conceal that. But even that "evidence", presented by the DNC hired company Crowdstrike, is thin.
