When the DNCLeaks “hack” happened in July of 2016, I took one look at the story and then my I/T gears started working internally. I immediately saw it for what I still believe it is today: An angry Bernie fan working for the DNC who saw what was happening and downloaded every PST (email collection) file on the servers to a USB drive and handed it over to WikiLeaks.
When you are talking about tens of thousands of emails, that is a massive quantity that takes a long time to stream across a network, and the DNC would have had to have some pretty stupid I/T folks not to notice it. Simply copying the files to a USB Drive would be simpler and much quicker, and almost impossible to catch in the act.
