A Far Likelier Explanation for the DNC’s Hacked Emails

Becky Ackers writes:
William Binney “was an architect of the NSA’s surveillance program. He became a famed whistleblower when he resigned on October 31, 2001, after spending more than 30 years with the agency.” He quit to protest the NSA’s full-throttled surveillance of American citizens following 9/11–and the Feds abused him accordingly.
Mr. Binney doesn’t buy the story that Russia hacked the DNC’s emails and exposed its machinations to anoint Hitlary just before its absurd convention. Instead, he “raised the possibility that the hack of the Democratic National Committee’s server was done … by a disgruntled U.S. intelligence worker concerned about Clinton’s compromise of national security secrets via her personal email use.” And remember: after three decades as an insider in that den of espionage, he knows whereof he speaks. He added:
…Hillary, according to an article published by the Observer in March of this year, has a problem with NSA because she compromised Gamma material.  Now that is the most sensitive material at NSA. And so there were a number of NSA officials complaining to the press or to the people who wrote the article that she did that. She lifted the material that was in her emails directly out of Gamma reporting. That is a direct compromise of the most sensitive material at the NSA. So she’s got a real problem there. So there are many people who have problems with what she has done in the past. So I don’t necessarily look at the Russians as the only one(s) who got into those emails.
On the one hand, YAY! for whomever at the NSA decided to take down The Witch. She is so utterly evil, so entirely corrupt, selfish and anti-American, that patriots should applaud Joe Stalin himself could he ascend from hell to drag her back into the Abyss with him.
On the other hand, Mr. Binney’s supposition illustrates precisely why we must abolish the NSA and the rest of the “intelligence community.” No bureaucracy should ever own such power.
This dovetails with my view that it is likely some US government actor, the actual motive and actor remain unclear.
