One year ago, the news broke that the Democratic National Committee had been hacked. Tongues began wagging and fingers began pointing that Russia was behind it. However, Democrats might want to get the Kremlin on the phone and offer an apology because a new report suggests the DNC hack may not have been a "hack" at all.

Or could it have been the DNC itself, leaking emails disguised as a hack to illicit sympathy and to create confusion in the election?
