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. The actions, along with a great deal of PR and even boasting about the actions all came from Russia. One might ask why Russia was so invested in Donald Trump becoming POTUS. Despite his refusal to release his finacial information it is known that Mr. Trump is heavily leveraged with Russian banks like Alpha. It was found he has a server that was connecting directly to Alpha and when reported the server went offline and wsa replaced with a different one,

It might be a good idea for NSA and DIA to do a little digging to find out if Mr. Trump is expected to pay back the favors Russia performed for him or if Mr. Putin simply has a big heart and did it for fun.

Politically motivated, likely. But could it be an inside job?
There were a lot of Burnie supporters inside the DNC, only one of which needed access to leak. The computer systems as well may have had a cyber mole who surreptitiously leaked access or took the files.
It begs the question was this breach like Edward Snowden, politically motivated? In Snowden's case yes, he has stated so. But his motivation, according to him, was to protect individuals from government excess, not to favor one ideology or party.

What was the motivation for the DNC leak? Was it to punish HRC, or perhaps to favor DT?

The point is:

1. Was it maliciouls intent by a nefarious party to promote an agenda? Is it actually Russia as HRC claims?

2. Does it matter as the damage is done? You can't unring that bell. Truth is Edward Snowden is in exile regardless of his motivation and that is a precidence for whistleblowers; Hide!

Until the individual or collective responsible can be identified, the speculation is just a fun exercise. But the real question should focus on how to secure systems and data not the 'who done it and why?'

That question is for the justice department.
