You may be right about the effect of the Clinton's comment. But that, as well as the substance of the emails, is more a matter of being impolitic than corrupt. At any rate, you are quick to pull out "the other side is equally as hypocritical" card, which is substantively irrelevant and such an echo of Trump supporters' talking points that it's not surprising that you are frequently mistaken for a Trump supporter. Your apparent identification with Republicans here confuses me; I would have expected more independence of thought and rhetoric from a professed libertarian. Perhaps I am wrong about that. Or perhaps you are more motivated by your hatred of Clinton and/or have convenient rather than coherent political views. I actually think trolling/misinformation and fake news, which the Russians also engaged in, and Comey's last-minute announcement of what turned out to be a non-existent link between State Department servers and the Weiner investigation were more influential than the DNC emails, but once again, it's impossible to know for sure.
