Since when are Russian hackers stupid enough to leak their own phishing emails?
Blaming the Russians for wikileaks is ridiculous.  Advanced cyber war teams for nation-states don't leave tracks.  Yes, Podesta was stupid enough to fall for a trivial phishing scam, but how stupid would it be to release the emails that included your own phishing breach?  Too stupid for Russians.

Wikileaks says it received the emails as a leak from someone authorized to see that information.  The emails were genuine. Why would Wikileaks jeopardize its own credibility by lying about its sources?

Wrong collusion
Russian Hackers have done alot but they did not hack the DNC on first crack - that data breach was a (now dead) DNC staffer who handed Julian Assange a ton of information.  Physical transfer of data.  Hand to hand.  Assange has said so over and over and so far NOBODY HAS FOUND HIM WRONG.   They do not like his methods but he tells truth.  Personally I think of him as Ernst Stavro Blofeld --- all he needs is a Nehru jacket and a white cat.  Now the DNC was hacked in other areas later on.  Podesta and Madame Oven Mitt's famous server.

Re: Wrong collusion
Agreed...

Want to look like a russian, hack a russian computer then attack your target...

51% of attacks are insiders, so I have always felt Seth Rich was the likely suspect.

Especially since he was killed while being robbed, yet his wallet was left on him with cash in it.
