The Wall Street Journal: U.S. debating whether to officially blame Russia for Democratic Party hacks

WASHINGTON — Two websites created in recent months and whose operators are believed to have ties to the Russian government now serve as portals for leaking sensitive and at times embarrassing information about the Democratic Party and its supporters.

Some computer experts and Democrats in Congress believe both websites — the Guccifer 2.0 WordPress page and DCLeaks.com — have ties to Russian intelligence services and that the sites are using hacked information to try to influence the November elections.

The precise motives of the entities controlling these webpages cannot be learned because their identities are unclear.

U.S. officials are now debating whether to publicly accuse the Russian government of conducting the attacks, two people familiar with the deliberations said, though no final decision about how to proceed has been made.
