It's not ok
The criminal act was the theft of the DNC emails by the Russian intelligence that were provided to Wikileaks.
But looking at the broader picture, this was all a Russian intelligence operation and the president, then-candidate Trump, was a part of it, was receptive to it, that he was trying to enhance the Russian Intelligence operation to interfere in the election.
It's not clear you can make a criminal case about that but looking at the whole picture of what was happening in the 2016 election it's a pretty damning portrait of what the president was doing. --- Michael Isikoff
I think a new congress and president, assuming they are sane, will have to look at some way to ensure that traitors and criminals who gleefully accept help and money from a foreign adversary to sabotage their campaign rivals are held accountable. Counting on the fact that no person who could ever be elected would do such a thing --- or that the country would stand for it --- is not working.
