Cliff Notes Version:

The entire Russian Collusion narrative was contrived in order to hide the fact that Seth Rich provided the DNC emails via a thumb drive to Wikileaks. The “fake news” that Guccifer (The Russians) performed the “Hack” was immediately disproven, then immediately resurfaced as Guccifer 2.0. Unfortunately for the perpetrators, Bill Binney proved the emails were downloaded locally due to their transfer speeds.

**A Leak – Not a Hack**

And if you’ve read to this point, might you notice that Wikileaks in May of 2015 was aware of communications to John Podesta via email. This is almost a year prior to the DNC claims of being potentially hacked. Could it be that Assange has more information not yet released?
