What I find fascinating is that Glenn Greenwald (and hence the Intercept) has been repeatedly denying the connection between the Russians and the Wikileaks dumps. After all, he' s utterly dependent on Putin to make sure that Edward Snowden remains safe and well fed. I suspect that Ms. Winner's leak was actually motivated by a desire to get him to shut up.

The trouble with this comes from thinking it though.
We are now to believe that the CIA itself worked tirelessly to elect Donald Trump so they could immediately turn on him and work to undermine his Presidency by selectively leaking their own strategy. I wonder why I didn't think of that!

Here. Let me help!
Although we did not find clear evidence that President or his colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of information stolen by a hostile foreign power,, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, hacked information. In our system, the prosecutors make the decisions about whether charges are appropriate based on evidence the FBI has helped collect. Although we don’t normally make public our recommendations to the prosecutors, we frequently make recommendations and engage in productive conversations with prosecutors about what resolution may be appropriate, given the evidence. In this case, given the importance of the matter, I think unusual transparency is in order.
