In a move of extreme downplaying, the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, Robby Mook, said the DNC leak was orchestrated by Russia, and that Russia is backing Donald Trump. Here is his quote on CNN's State of the Union:

"What's disturbing to us is that we - experts are telling us that Russian state actors broke into the DNC, stole these e-mails. And other experts are now saying that the Russians are releasing these e-mails for the purpose of actually helping Donald Trump. I don't think it's coincidental that these e-mails were released on the eve of our convention here. And that's disturbing. And I think we need to be concerned about that. I think we need to be concerned that we also saw last week at the Republican Convention that Trump and his allies made changes to the Republican platform to make it more pro-Russian. And we saw him talking about how NATO shouldn't intervene to defend - necessarily should intervene to defend our Eastern European allies if they are attacked by Russia. So, I think, when you put all this together, it's a disturbing picture. And I think voters need to reflect on that."

Thoughts?

Regardless of any probability of Russian involvement in the DNC leak, I thought this was an inappropriate response. The question directly asked about the implication for actively hurting Sanders, and he downplayed the reality of the situation in regards to the election and pushed a Trump Presidency as a Russian conspiracy.
Why?

It's probably true. Because of Hillary's strong anti-Russia stance and Trump's strong pro-Russia stance, Putin is actively interfering in the election on a scale with no precedent in U.S. presidential election history.

It's Benghazhi video blaming all over again.
I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations.
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection,
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

Thought this thread was about Alex Jones's endorsement. The comments made a lot of sense in that context.

So e-mails are released, putting on full public display the unquestionable collusion and corruption between the Clinton campaign and the DNC / super delegate system. The DNC Chair was fired due to these e-mails...but was then immediately hired by Hillary Clinton to work in her campaign as a top official. This is not disturbing to you, but Russia apparently wanting Trump to win IS disturbing?

The Russians are the ones foing things that make sense. Obama was busy ousting dictators, causing complete chaos and removing all personel from Iraq, causing ISIS to manifest. I never thought I'd see the Russians be the ones doing the right thing and not us. I have now.
