Me: A hacker in Russia does not mean that Russia hacked. That would be like saying of Julian Assange -- Sweden released documents about Clinton. Or Snowden -- well, technically, he was an agent of the US. But his release of that data was as an individual (possibly even treason), not by an act of government. If you want to play "spin the story", every time a US Postal Employee shoots up his office (goes postal, lol), the story could read - 7 people killed by US Government.
