Re: Politically motivated, likely. But could it be an inside job?
"Was it maliciouls intent by a nefarious party to promote an agenda?"

I think it may be, simply releasing information to mass public is part of the agenda I would say.

"Perhaps it wsa to get someone indebted to Russian banks elected"

I am not sure how much impact of leak had on the election results. There is no concrete evidence of it.

Re: Not a single event
"This was not a one off, it was part of a series of attacks and leaks designed to aid a specific candidate for President of the US."

"But the real question should focus on how to secure systems and data not the 'who done it and why?'"

I do not disagree. However, I do think that we need to know who and why to enforce accountability and responsibility.

Re: Politically motivated, likely. But could it be an inside job?
"The computer systems as well may have had a cyber mole who surreptitiously leaked access or took the files"

I agree. I may even be the case that information is shared from inside.

"What was the motivation for the DNC leak?"

How about just making the news? Anything unknow disclosed would get attention from the readers.

Email Leak Was Deliberate Act?
What am I missing here? I do not know how leaked emails could not be deliberate. This I not like an oil pipe leaking. Of course, it is deliberate.
