    Should America be concerned about hacked emails if Russia is involved?

    I'm asking this because I have read the leaked emails but I am curious as  to why there aren't any leaked Republican emails if this is not biased information. Also since this has never happened in our country's history, should we be concerned if an outside antagonist is disrupting our presidential campaigns?

    Yes, we should be concerned about the Democrats not protecting this vital infrastructure, as well as the corruption and conspiracy revealed by the emails.
    And these hacks are on top of the Chinese hack of the Office of Personnel Management, where they got the records of 4 million military personnel, defense contractors and federal employees - perfect for blackmail and intelligence gathering.

      So you believe that Republican emails have more security and that's why they have not been hacked? Also Obama's personal email was hacked as well? Why haven't any other party emails been hacked?

    Russia is not involved, that is a nice lie they are throwing at you to deflect the truth... much like when they told America four years ago that the riots in the Middle East were caused by a YouTube video.

    If you want to remain ignorant and a dupe, continue to believe that nonsense.  The leaks are coming from those within the NSA and FBI who are trying to fight the corruption, the total destruction of a free society.

    That is what it to come, if Clinton gets elected, or should I say, when the Establishment inserts her as President (the popular vote doesn't matter) she will appoint at least two new Supreme Court Justices, the balance of the court will be broken, and it will shift far to the Left, or in other words, will not longer get in the way of the President, and Executive Orders that are not supported by the Constitution or Congress.

    This will negate Congress completely, making the President the ultimate authority and give America the closest thing to  Dictatorship in living memory.  She already has the DOJ and FBI doing her bidding and she is not even the President, I can't wait to see what happens a couple years down the road when she actually is.

    We are headed into a nightmare... and the sad thing is that the majority of people who are voting for her think they are avoiding just that by supporting her rather than Trump.  Those that will be worst hit by what is to come are the very ones most likely to support her, the minorities struggling to get by, who will lose jobs to H1-B, H2-B visa holders and illegal immigrants that have more rights these days in most states than American citizens.

      Ok Ken...let's get one thing straigt! I am not a supporter of HRC nor did I say the Russians are hacking her emails. And it still doesn't answer why there aren't any leaked Republican emails. So your rant about Hillary fell on deaf ears.

      Miss( Knowledge?)...UR Title asks "IF" Russia is involved. This suggests U've considered the lie. Yes, "let's do get something straight"..UR choice of the term "rant" in no way whatsoever applies to Ken's calm, well-stated & sensible opinion.

      Why aren't there any leaked Republican emails?  Its not about Dem/Rep its about a corrupt system being exposed, that includes GOP elites.  Sorry for the rest, just tired of the media covering for corrupt politicians and criminals with these BS lies.

      Paula my question does not insinuate that I've considered anything. And yes it was a rant since the question was about leaked emails and not your choice of candidates. Ken thanks for clarifying your response.

      What Burgess is saying is correct Miss Knowledge. Miss Knowledge? What was people like palin and huckabee saying about assange in 2010 and 2012? If you think its partisanship after that, you do so willingly despite the obvious.

    I believe Americans should definitely be concerned about hacked emails no matter what their political stances are. Marco Rubio made a good point by stating that it's affecting Democrats now but Republicans could be next. The American election process does not need anyone tampering with it. At the bare minimum, Donald Trump's publicly asking Russia to look into emails was not proper. Until or unless Republicans are hacked many people will continue to believe the hacks have been either initiated/supported/both by Republicans. I think Americians should be concerned whether Russians are involved or not.

      Tampering?  Tampering is altering the vote count... paying off people to vote a certain way... threatening people not to vote...
      What these email releases are doing is INFORMING AMERICA about what Clinton and her aids have done, and believe.

    America should be concerned about hacked emails no matter who hacks them and even more so if Russia is involved?  You have to wonder what the Russians have to gain and who is providing those gains and why?
    Can the Person(s) who are providing those gains have the finances to cover the hackers activities.

      WikiLeaks is a Russian plot...
      Middle East riots were caused by a YouTube video...
      30,000 emails deleted and dozens of devices destroyed had nothing on them
      Gullible, one has to be unbelievably gullible to buy into the BS they are shoveling.
