Now that our collective national hysteria over Trump’s awkward choice of words in Helsinki has subsided (replaced by hysteria over something else no doubt), it’s fair to wonder whether the President’s original words were actually accurate.
Lost and forgotten is an article left-leaning magazine The Nation ran that explored the possibility that the DNC hack was an inside job.
Why would DNC insiders steal and leak information held on DNC servers? That’s a $64,000 question isn’t it. One possibility that comes to mind is the Bernie Sanders campaign. The campaign was caught red-handed accessing Clinton campaign records early-on during the primaries. Is it possible the Sanders campaign – or a disaffected DNC IT worker – thought revenge was in order after the DNC barred the Sanders campaign from access to DNC databases?
What about Imran Awan and his crew? They were a group of wholly unqualified Pakistanis Debbie Wasserman-Schultz hired to provide IT services. To date we know very little about the government’s case against Awan.
Trump isn’t always the most eloquent speaker but maybe he had a solid and valid point in Helsinki.
