8:14 PM, last night: The "Intelligence" briefing on so-called "Russian hacking" was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!

7:22 AM, today: Julian Assange said "a 14 year old could have hacked Podesta" - why was DNC so careless? Also said Russians did not give him the info!

8:10 AM, today: "@FoxNews: Julian Assange on U.S. media coverage: "It's very dishonest." #Hannity" More dishonest than anyone knows

8:27 AM and 8:31 AM, today: Somebody hacked the DNC but why did they not have "hacking defense" like the RNC has and why have they not responded to the terrible...... things they did and said (like giving the questions to the debate to H). A total double standard! Media, as usual, gave them a pass.

These aren't his first tweets on the subject...

December 30: Great move on delay (by V. Putin) - I always knew he was very smart!

December 23: Vladimir Putin said today about Hillary and Dems: "In my opinion, it is humiliating. One must be able to lose with dignity." So true!

December 16: Are we talking about the same cyberattack where it was revealed that head of the DNC illegally gave Hillary the questions to the debate?

December 15: If Russia, or some other entity, was hacking, why did the White House wait so long to act? Why did they only complain after Hillary lost?

December 12: Can you imagine if the election results were the opposite and WE tried to play the Russia/CIA card. It would be called conspiracy theory! Unless you catch "hackers" in the act, it is very hard to determine who was doing the hacking. Why wasn't this brought up before election?

Why it matters: Award shows have always addressed wider cultural issues, but this year — amid unprecedented stress and uncertainty — that trend has accelerated.
