COMMENT: Some cyber-security experts view the “Russian intelligence” hacking of DNC computers as suspiciously transparent . Noting that the hacker seems to have left information available pointing to a Russian culprit, some have asked if a serious, professional intelligence service would do something like that.
It reminds us of the Lee Harvey Oswald doubles who were traveling all around and taking actions that would point to, and incriminate Oswald as the supposed assassin who killed President Kennedy. Recall that one of the nicknames we have assigned Snowden is “The Obverse Oswald.” 
We wonder if “Team Snowden” might have something to do with this? Julian Assange has been quite open about wanting to damage Hillary Clinton’s chances to win the Presidency.
Both Snowden  and Julian Assange  are ultra-right wingers and big fans of Ron Paul , who expresses sentiments similar to those voiced  by the Trumpenkampfverbande. The hack seems likely to propel Hillary more in the direction of the New Cold War than she is already inclined to navigate, if she wins.
WikiLeaks’ operations  for Russia and Scandinavia are overseen by Assange’s Holocaust denying close aide Joran Jermas (aka “Israel Shamir”) and his son Johannes Wahlstrom, a bird of the same political feather. It was Jermas/Shamir who arranged for WikiLeaks to be hosted on the Pirate Bay server, financed by Swedish fascist Carl Lundstrom .
Snowden, of course, is in Russia right now, working for a computer firm. Does he have anything to do with this? Recall it was Snowden’s journey to Russia , courtesy of Sarah Harrison and WikiLeaks, that put the final nail in the coffin of the “reboot with Russia” undertaken by Obama’s State Department under Hillary Clinton.
In a future program and/or post, we will look at “corporate Germany’s” dissatisfaction  with the sanctions on Russia. They are costing German firms  a great deal of money. Bear in mind that the Bormann capital network  controls corporate Germany. The situation of German firms and Russia must also be evaluated against traditional German “Ostpolitik,” which is covered at length in Germany Plots with the Kremlin  available for download for free on this website.
We mention this, because Trump’s comments about Putin, Russia and NATO have led most observers to assume he is a “Kremlin stooge.” We suspect he may actually be under the control of the Bormann capital network  and his expressed attitudes toward Russia reflect corporate Germany’s dissatisfaction with the US-led sanctions.
UPDATE: A former German hacktivist has weighed in , casting further doubt on Russian authorship of the hack.
. . . . But security expert Jeff Carr thought the smoke off this smoking-gun was a bit too thick. In his minority report , he asks: what kind of spy ring tags their stolen docs before releasing them under a cover?
“Raise your hand if you think that a GRU or FSB officer would add Iron Felix’s  name to the metadata of a stolen document before he released it to the world while pretending to be a Romanian hacker. Someone clearly had a wicked sense of humor,” he wrote.
“If you were to reduce the very high level of cybercrime, states wouldn’t be able to carry out these attacks. They would lose this plausible deniability and it would become a more straightforward attack. I think they want to make it difficult for leaders to have the kind of unambiguous statement that drives policy in a democracy,” Porter said. “They want to make it hard to respond. But they probably don’t mind getting caught, in the sense that they want to send a message.” . . . .
Crowdstrike president Shawn Henry is dubious. “I don’t know what kind of foreign intelligence service conducting a covert operation wants to be found,” he said on Thursday, but added that CrowdStrike picked up the DNC hack within 48 hours and that it “wasn’t difficult.” . . . .
