John Schindler on the DNC email leak:
The important part of this story is that Russian intelligence, using its Wikileaks cut-out, has intervened directly in an American presidential election….The most damaging aspect to the DNC leak is the certainty that Moscow has placed disinformation—that is, false information hidden among facts—to harm the Democrats and the Clinton campaign.
….It’s obvious that Moscow prefers Trump over Clinton in this election, which ought not surprise given the important role of Putin-friendly advisors in the Trump campaign, and what better way to help is there than to discredit Team Clinton?
This is mostly interesting for where it appeared: the New York Observer, which is owned by Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump’s husband. Sometimes you can’t even count on family to protect you.
