So, who could do something like this?
Individuals who are wealthy and genius but also sort of crazy.
Corporations who secretly are doing this to harm the U.S. and European Economies to help their bottom line. But, likely they would not be in Europe or the U.S. and instead be in Africa, Asia or South America most likely. Also, when a corporation was found out responsible for something like this it would be publicized worldwide and that corporation shamed.
Countries might do something like this to harm the relationship between Russia, the U.S. and Europe by destroying their economies.
For example, let's say Saudi Arabia would want to harm Russia by aligning with China to harm the U.S. ,Europe and Russia in this way by pretending to be Russian based hackers in some way.
However, then why would China or Saudi Arabia do this because China's main business partner in trade is the U.S. And Americans might buy more Saudi Oil than any other country and also the safest place to invest all the oil money is the U.S. and European STock markets. So, why would the destroy the Goose that lays the Golden eggs.
Now, you see why Russia would be blamed. The U.S. doesn't buy much from Russia for a variety of reasons. So, because Russia and the U.S. doesn't have much of a business trading relationship this is why Russia would be the most likely culprit with the technical knowhow to pull this off.
What does Russia Gain?
World Dominance as Mother Russia over China and the U.S. and Europe.
So, Russia might not care if China collapsed, or Europe Collapsed or the U.S. Collapsed (all economically) because it might further their goals of taking over Europe (all of it eventually) as new Russian states (vassal States).
Why would Russia want Trump?
Trump is a fool and because of his Narcissistic personality disorder and Putin with psychological KGB training could play Trump for a fool every time.
"A Person with an obvious personality disorder can always be manipulated by PHDs in psychology once they define the personality disorder."
And Trump's personality disorder is already classified:
www.mayoclinic.org/.../narcissistic-personality-disorder/.../con-20025568Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultraconfidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism.
www.mayoclinic.org/.../narcissistic-personality-disorder/.../con-20025568Narcissistic personality disorder is one of several types of personality disorders. Personality disorders are conditions in which people have traits that cause them
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissistic_personality_disorderNarcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a long-term pattern of abnormal behavior characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of understanding of others' feelings.

So, the way to manipulate Trump is already been found and designated by Russia in making Trump a Putin Puppet.
So, the Reason Russia is implicated in this so much is that they have the most to gain from this and the least to lose because their Internet is not as extensive as Europe's or the U.S. or China's.
So, destroying one or all of these Internets could help Russia expand while the other three go into a severe Great Depression when their Internets are destroyed by Russia at some point in the near or far future (like on Election Day) or in stages over the next 10 years or so. IF there is no real push back to Russia these hacks will just get worse and worse if you understand the basic KGB training Putin has mastered.
Who is another leader with Narcissistic Personality disorder?
So, if you look at the damage done by another demagogue with Narcissistic Personality disorder you can only imagine the damage Trump would do to our democracy and institutions since 1776 as well.
And who is behind (most likely) the big attack on the U.S. Internet: The Russian Government. Who else has the money time and people who would be successful at this every time?
It might take 1 to 10 to 20 million dollars to pull something like this off like last Friday but it caused at least 110 Million dollars in Economic damage to all these Internet sites and companies that were hacked here in the U.S.
Think about this a few million already caused 110 millions of dollars or more in losses of these Internet companies in One Day. What if attacks continued for a week, a month or longer?
What if malware infected Servers here in the U.S. and Europe and the Internet was shut down 6 months at a time while all the servers destroyed by the malware had to be replaced?
What if 6 months or a year later all these servers were destroyed by a new version of malware that killed all of them too.
One year later now, how many Internet companies had enough capital stored to still be in business one year later? Since the Internet has now been off completely for one year?
