The idea that a non-governmental actor pursuing a personal political agenda could hack the DNC and potentially sway an election is bad enough, an act of cyberwarfare by a foreign state is arguably much worse.

“Guccifer 2.0 has been part of a Russian denial and deception program,” said Toni Gidwani, director of research operations at ThreatConnect on a conference call today. Gidwani believes that the Russian hack may have initially been intended for low-level intel that could be used to support Russian narratives about the U.S., but morphed into an attempt to influence the U.S. presidential election.

The Russians are still giving Edward Snowden asylum too right?

At least until 2017.

What would stop that? President Trump?
