Daniel Lazare discusses the hacking of the DNC email server, which is in the news yet again because of the recent indictment against Julian Assange. Lazare points out why many of the allegations against Assange don’t make any sense, among which is the claim that he worked with supposed Russian agent Guccifer 2.0 to obtain and leak the stolen emails—but this claim is supported by an announcement from Wikileaks that happened before the alleged contact with Guccifer. The full report is full of many other similar contradictions.
