Who leaked the documents is less important in view of the extraordinary information that has just been delivered to American voters.

By attacking the Russians, she seeks to distract from the substance of what has become known. Hillary Clinton’s people had to cheat to beat Senator Bernie SandersBernard (Bernie) SandersSanders expected to announce exploratory committee next week Bernie Sanders records announcement video ahead of possible 2020 bid Bill Maher to Dems: ‘Let’s not eat our own’ in 2020 MORE, and managed to make disparaging comments about Blacks, Gays and Latinos while doing so.

While Donald Trump has never met Putin, Hillary and her husband have exchanged enormous contributions at The Clinton Foundation and The Clinton Global Initiative with the Russian Oligarchs friendly to Putin in exchange for governmental favors. That includes turning over 75% control of Uranium production in the United States. http://www.wsj.com/articles/the-clinton-foundation-state-and-kremlin-connections-1469997195 

Hillary Clinton and her campaign actually pretend that it is outrageous that a U.S. presidential contender would urge the Russians to attack the email of a U.S. official. This is ludicrous, in view of the fact that Hillary Clinton’s unsecured email server already allowed the Russians, and presumably the Chinese, to hack top secret classified information.

It is important to look immediately at Russian motives. If Putin prefers Trump as President, it is because he knows Hillary Clinton is a neocon, and that many of her major contributors would profit from war between Russia and the United States.

Putin understand that war serves neither nation, but he fundamentally does not trust Hillary because he knows she is a liar. Perhaps, in Trump, he sees a strong man whose word is good, opening the possibility of hard negotiated agreements, which would achieve peace and avoid war. Putin is making that bet.

It is the Obama-Clinton policies that have brought us to the brink of nuclear war with Russia. Trump favors a new era of detente' in which we lessen tensions with Russia and work together to eradicate ISIS. Trump is not only the Law and Order candidate, he is also the Peace candidate. 

In many ways, the hacked Clinton emails are like Richard Nixon’s Watergate tapes. The information they contain came back to bite Hillary in the ass. It is clear that whoever is leaking these revealing documents has an innate sense of timing; dropping proof of the theft from Bernie Sanders and the complicity of Clinton henchwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz just before the Democratic National Convention. A cache of documents about the Clinton Foundation are almost surely next. 

This will be a relentless drip-like water torture, with potentially devastating information about the Clintons being written in bold for the American voters.

Remember, when confronted with the pattern of wealthy interests making mega donations to the Clinton’s slush fund charity and major governmental decisions beneficial to those countries, their response was “we have no proof”.

Now, perhaps we do.
