Politifact has a better breakdown: http://www.politifact.com/
A few key points:
*There is evidence that previous leaks did modify some material
*Not all of the emails are signed, so some could be doctored.
*DKIM wouldn't prevent doctoring by omission (not leaking some emails)
All reporting seems to ignore an (admittedly unlikely) scenario: it's
possible that HillaryClinton.com was compromised and the DKIM signing keys
were stolen. The story so far is that a few campaign aides had their
accounts compromised by spear phishing, but that could be a cover story. If
we're to believe this is really a state-level attacker it's by no means
Of course, it's a bad look for the Clinton campaign to say the leaks may
not be accurate because the breach was actually worse than reported.
