Q: Did people in DU know about Russia hacking DEMS emails in May of last year?
This post is from May last year!!!
Rumor has it the Russians have many of them
Can you imagine them doing a public dump of her email, say... October 21st or thereabouts?
Anybody who has copies of those has an incredible amount of blackmail power of her. Disqualifying in and of itself.
Fascinating that a lot of those posts originate in a certain subforum here.
But hardly surprising.
But this was proven false, as no evidence has ever been found that any of her emails from her personal server were ever hacked. Point of false rumor was to insinuate her use of private server had compromised national security. Russia and right-wingers and anti-Clinton left wingers all spread this fake rumor, and continued spreading fake rumors through the primary season and into general campaign.
There is much confusion about this false rumor about Hillary's email which was never hacked, with the real hacking of DNC and Podesta's email that had occurred in spring 2016 but not released until summer/fall 2016 by Wikileaks.
could have come from Trump headquarters or one of his Russians.
who were gleefully pronouncing her guilty of felonies, because she had a handful of what were thought to have been classified emails on her private emails. (Containing those articles from European media that Blumenthal sent her.)
They were believing a certain DUer who was oh-so-confidently insisting that her "intent" didn't matter at all -- even though the law clearly makes intent the key factor, and the FBI, of course, decided a month later NOT to charge her with anything because there was no intent. When a new DUer posted the actual law, with the language about intent, she was informed that she only had 45 posts and that her opinion wasn't nearly as important as the Hlllary-hater who had ignored the law, but posted pages and pages of obfuscation that looked very important.
It's discouraging to see that DUers were still posting this Trump-assisting crap after Bernie had no mathematical chance to win the election. I wonder how many of the people in that thread have deserted for JPR or for parts unknown.
But as to your question -- yes, that is very curious. How would a DUer have heard that a Russian could have her emails way back in May 2016?
All but sixteen have been PPR'd, refused to agree to terms of service, or stopped posting sometime last year.
16 out of 77.

As I said to pnwmom, I was filling time, trying to stay out of trouble until my wife got home.
to lure Trump and associated assholes into their oil oligarchy and haven for the last days on earth trap, but they didn't have Hillary's emails, they only had the DNC's emails. So ha! the joke's on you, you stupid trumpsky and associated assholes!
Am I right? Am I wrong? Am I lost in my own little world? Have I had too much wine? Perhaps!
Still, I could be right. But probably not.
This was a two-fold operation- spread false rumor of Russian hacking into Hillary's private server to make it seem that she had compromised national security- hurting her popularity, while at same time being able to lure the Trump gang into thinking Russians really had her emails in order to get Trumpsters to promise concessions to Russia in return for her emails and Russian help in campaign
