Before we go all in on the Russia theory, it's important to note that we don't actually know who the real sources are. It could be Russians, even, but not Russians who work for Putin.

Either way, it's not like what Assange did was unusual, even if it was sourced by the Russians. Journalists take and report on all sorts of sources. Should we be concerned about how easy it apparently is for Russians to infiltrate and hack top level government/political institutions, in order to force the outcome of an election to get the candidate they want? Yeah, I would say so. I would say it's about as important confirmed cases of American institutions rigging the outcome of American election in order to get the candidate that they want.
