Perhaps it was Russia that released the emails?

So the question of the hour/day/week is how did the Times get the email. Because the only reason Don Con Jr. was 'transparent' was the fact that the Times was about to publish.

Speculation is focused on one of the Trump lackeys being the leaker, and that is most likely correct. But there is one possibility I have not yet heard, or read.

What if it was Russia?

After all, it seems they have Trump by the short hairs but have received nothing for it and it looks like they will not. These guys play hard ball...like people end up dead hardball. Not even they are willing to assassinate someone close to Trump, but what better way to make Trump take desperate actions like lifting sanctions than a shot across the bow that results in his name sake being forever shamed and potentially imprisoned? Because doing so make it clear that they are serious and Trump is next.

It will be interesting to see how Trump responds in the next few days vis-à-vis actions concerning Russia? Wanna bet they get their spy palaces in DC back?

Have a nice evening.
