The story has nothing to do with the content of Clinton's hacked emails, which show she stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders. The main story was submerged in this outcry against Russia, former CIA officer Ray McGovern told RT.

During a news conference at the 2016 BRICS summit for five major emerging economies, Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed Washington's latest threat to launch a cyber-attack against Russia based on unsubstantiated claims that Russia had somehow interfered in the 2016 presidential election, which is already being called the most scandal-filled contest in American political history.

Putin added that US intelligence could be keeping tabs on all journalists. RT spoke with former CIA officer Ray McGovern for his views on the situation.

RT: Will there be any justification on a CIA cyber-attack on Russia given there's no concrete evidence against Moscow interfering with the US elections?

Ray McGovern:Vice President Biden, let me put it this way, 'on neseryozniy chelovek'; he's not a serious person. He's run by ventriloquists. The reality is that someone told him to say that, told him to say that on Friday. Why is the timing important? Because the foreign ministers of the United States, Russia and others were convening in Switzerland on Saturday. And so the CIA leaked these reports from unnamed officials about Russians hacking, trying to interfere with our election and Biden went on Meet the Press Retaliate for what? As you've already mentioned, there's no proof, there's no proof at all.

Could there be proof? Of course. There's a trace mechanism that can trace the emails back to the original source, and if they had that they would produce it. What is it? It's not hacking, it's leaking. My friends, who used to work for NSA, tell me that this is most likely a leak, a leak by someone like Ed Snowden, who saw what Hillary Clinton and what the Democratic National Committee was doing and wanted to expose it to the rest of the world. And they successfully did that.

What did Clinton and the Democrats do? A huge diversion; it no longer had to do with the content of these emails, which of course, showed that she stole, again, she stole, the nomination from Bernie Sanders. The content was submerged in this outcry against Russian: "Julian Assange -- he must be working for the Russians. Why the Russians? The Russians want Trump to win." I've never heard anything so outlandish to suggest that President Vladimir Putin would want Trump to win.
