    Russian Hackers stole Dems' Trump files, firm says

    Washington (CNN): Hackers connected to the Russian government broke into the servers of the Democratic National Committee and stole opposition research on Donald Trump, the cybersecurity experts responding to the intrusion said Tuesday.

    Two separate Russian intelligence-linked cyberattack groups were both in the DNC's networks, Dmitri Alperovitch, co-founder and chief technology officer of CrowdStrike, which responded to the breach, told CNN. They likely didn't even know the other was in the systems, he added.

    Why do the Russians need these files? One speech from Trump tells you everything you need to know....

    They also stole other files, some of which have already been published. Some of them are spreadsheets with names and email addresses of large DNC donors.

    One is an internal document surrounding the 2016 GOP candidates that seems to prove the DNC colluded with Hillary from the beginning, almost as if it were a coronation. The document, from May 2015, references general election plans in order to make sure "HRC" wins.

    Looks like it was Hillary's turn all along.

    That was easy. The DNC must store their Trump data on Hillary's homebrew server.

    Maybe they store it on one of the White House's servers or at the Office of Personnel Management?

    Why Trump files is puzzling.

    Yet, another person is in possession of damning information and who'd been in the news before.

    "Wikileaks will publish ‘enough evidence’ to indict Hillary Clinton, warns Assange"

    "Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange warns more information will be published about Hillary Clinton, enough to indict her if the US government is courageous enough to do so, in what he predicts will be “a very big year” for the whistleblowing website.

    Expressing concerns in an ITV interview about the Democratic presidential candidate, who he claims is monitoring him, Assange described Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump as an “unpredictable phenomenon”, but predictably, given their divergent political views, didn’t say if he preferred the billionaire to be president.

    He was not asked if he supported Green Party candidate Jill Stein, even though she said she would immediately pardonWikileaks whistleblower Chelsea Manning if elected."

    In May 2015, HRC was the principal candidate, maybe even the sole candidate.
    She announced on 12 April 2015:

    Bernie didn't announce his candidacy until 26 May 2015:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernie_Sanders_presidential_campaign,_2016

    I don't recall exactly when other Dem candidates announced, but I think they were all after HRC's announcement. It should be easy to find out.


    In any case, regardless of party or candidate, if there's only one candidate at a point in time, it's pretty elementary logic for a planning committee's planning document to only discuss plans for that candidate.

    Hillary Clinton -- Announced: April 12, 2015
    Bernie Sanders -- Announced: April 30, 2015

    Those are the dates from the wikipedia links you provided.

    The planning document was dated May 26, 2015.

    What kind of mental gymnastics does it take to offer facts that don't support your premise... and then ignore them?
    Hope you stretched first.

    It's called hedging your bets. You have a group of people and you know their past history. You know your opposition. You look at your group and figure who has the best chance of beating the others in their group and then beating the opposition. Then you wrote contingency plans on how that is going to happen.

    People in general plan ahead. They look at all the possibilities, and then plan for the most likely.

    It's like the annual flu shot, they look at all the strains, and then choose the one they think will be most prevalent and attack that one.

    True, and the person who posted that should have checked before making those claims, but I'm pretty sure when Sanders announced it took him a few months to break out of single digits in the polls.

    Yes.

    There is clearly a conspiracy to isolate Sanders, but I don't think these document leaks are the proof of it. Sanders formally declared the same day this document was released. I have been a supporter of Bernard Sanders since about 2007, and I didn't think his run would have a serious impact on the Democratic nomination at that time.
