I think this is much simpler than the Russians trying to influence US elections or policy. It's about revenge. Everyone knows Hillary was playing god in Libya and a lot of people died, including friend of Putin...Muammar Gaddafi. Who was killed with US assistance and his corpse mutilated and broadcast on TV.
Russia took the gloves off after that, going after Clinton's support on all fronts. First internationally and now at home. All the leaks from the DNC to Soro's and his constellation of NGOs are all long time Clinton supporters. Taking out Gaddafi changed the rules and everything that follows Ukraine, Syria, etc. is because of it.
Clinton's desperation is just sad...she knows what coming and she'll be done.
