All the conspiracy theories demonizing Russia are absurd.

DNC sues Trump campaign, WikiLeaks & Russia over 2016 campaign
This is the most clear and coherent explanation of the lawsuit I've come across so far. Figures that it is from Russia Today!

Putin on Soros: If We Ask Why Soros Meddles, US Says It's His Private Affair
Putin draws attention to a rather obvious double-standard which has not been sufficiently highlighted by our biased news media.

Lavrov To Clueless Cathy Newman: I Love Lewis Carrol, But Not Logic - Sentence First, Verdict Later
All the claims about Russian hacking are just claims without real evidence and the so-called evidence that has been offered is weak and easily refuted.

12 Russian military officers accused of disrupting 2016 election
It's already been shown that the DNC hack was an inside job. These indictments are complete bullshit. The timing of these accusations is very suspicious. Obviously the intention is to derail the meeting between Trump and Putin. As for McCain, he's a complete moron!

How Much Power Do The Latest Russian Indictments Hold? | NBC News
I think these indictments are so obviously bogus that many Interpol countries will not honor them. These indictments seriously undermine the credibility of our "intelligence" agencies. There is no evidence to support these claims and all our officials say is that they are "highly likely" without any evidence presented. There is much more reason to believe the Seth Rich theory (or that some other insider leaked the files) than to believe that Russia (or some other country) had anything to do with the leaks. The problem is that not only do the leaks show the corruption of the DNC, but the possibility that they murdered Seth Rich is even more damning. These indictments are all about covering up for the DNC (who at the very least had ridiculously sloppy computer security) and keeping Trump from meeting with Putin. It's all political theater without any substance!

DOJ: Russian hackers used spear phishing, bitcoin
These tactics are within the skill set of any beginning hacker. If it was the Russians who hacked the DNC, then they were unbelievably casual about it. Must not have been a high priority kind of thing. Also the $100K price tag makes it seem like if the Russians did it, then they didn't assign much importance to the operation. So, either these indictments are totally bogus as already suggested, or they are ridiculously over blown. If such simple tactics can do so much, then the problem is weak security, not that there are adversaries from all around the world and from within our own country who might be motivated to compromise thousands of potential targets. The solution is not to make a big deal out of nothing (the DNC hack is incredibly inconsequential), but to improve our ability to defend against computer attacks. That's where we should be putting our efforts. It's a silly waste of time to play this pathetic game of finger pointing.

ALSO I AGREE THAT:
1) the Seth Rich theory has more evidence for it than the Russian Hacker theory
2) the indictments do weaken our credibility with the international community and might result in Interpol requests being rejected
3) the timing of these indictments were obviously intended to interfere with Trump building a relationship with Russia
