Oh yes, hired by democrats to 'find' Russian meddling. Interesting how they choose the one company that has a sour outlook with Russia to begin with. Maybe you aren't familiar with what type of innate bias a Russia ex-pat would have when being paid by the DNC to 'find' Russian hacking.
Exactly!! They don't want people discussing the content of the leaks!
You are referring to something that has been around long enough for anyone to mimic. Russians hacking the DNC emails wouldn't leave traces that pointed to Russia, that would be stupid on their part.
The hacks prove democrats are not intelligent enough or responsible enough for positions of power.

Everyone has all the evidence they need to see she was cheating, lying and backstabbing the american people and honestly people are questioning the legitimacy of trumps win? Its f-ing pathetic!
You admit there is not enough evidence to prove Russian involvement.
You are also pointing out, that unsecure networks are vulnerable. Ok. Are you in favor of draconian cybersecurity measures that ultimately is the responsibility of the individual who should be securing their own files.
The NSA was caught in acts of widespread surveillance, including German leadership. Either you are wholly against this type of act, or you only oppose it when it's not coming from the US.
Stuxnet was allegedly from the US, should there be repercussions for Stuxnet even though there is not enough evidence to prove US involvement?
Why is it so imperative to convince the public, the Russians hacked the DNC? What is the purpose, why can't remedies be done without all the hooplah?
Eh just your post would go against your self reported "rationality." There are dolts on both sides, including a horde of idiots on the right.

If there were more of you I would have never defected to the right

Now, the case for Russian involvement in or leadership in these events hinges on only a couple of things:
- Certain unspecified "malware" was (apparently) written with a Cyrillic keyboard. This may or may not be true but is hardly an ironclad case for any "hacking" being carried out by Russians specifically, let alone state-sponsored Russians.
