The alleged hacking of DNC and Podesta emails is an elaborate hoax to increase military spending. It has been concocted to create an "enemy" to justify taking money from taxpayers and transferring this money to the military arms industry and its supporting contractors.
Where is the evidence of the alleged hacking? Even Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, an integral part of the lying campaign about Iraq WMD to get the American public to approve the bombing and invasion of Iraq and who perjured himself to Congress denying NSA was collecting data on American citizens, cannot present any fact-based evidence.
And then there is ignoring of the statement by Julian Assange that Russia did not provide Wikipedia with the DNC and Podesta emails. Also, Craig Murray, former Ambassador to Uzbekistan, said he was the one who provided the leaked (meaning removed, not hacked) emails to Wikileaks.
Cui bono? Answer - the Military-Industrial Complex. Who loses? Answer -- the American taxpayer. What's at stake? Answer -- the minutes left on the Doomsday Clock.
