Kaspersky blackmailed hacker?

So, we've got Kasperskys reputation trashed and the 'Russia hacked the DNC' meme resurrected. But if Stoyanov was working for the US, wouldn't that mean the FBI was doing the blackmailing. Besides, there isn't even any evidence that anyone hacked Clinton's private email server. Going on the time-stamps, the files would have to have been copied locally and the uploaded in bulk. This 'Russia hacked the election' meme, something concocted out of thin air by the US media to explain how Clinton lost to the Orange One in the US Presidential race.
