IIRC foreigners aren't even allowed to donate to a poltical campaign. Committing crimes to aid and abet one side is hardly likely to be something that would be tolerated in a more temperate season. And if collusion could be proved, well then we're almost into rico territory.
So, no it ain't journalism. As if most of the US media have any clue what that even means
keep to the Fen Causeway
Which may not be an entirely stable situation

What I don't see is why I should be outraged about any of this. If a leaker carries out the politically embarrassing office mail, the information is of public interest and it gets published in major newspapers I would have no objection at all. Even if you replace the first step with Vladimir Putin in a hoodie, there is little material change in the outcome. And US political culture already was considering journalism, as in publishing what the powerful don't want published, to be close to treason. Jumping on the McCarthy express doesn't seem helpful.
Mueller's public brief is programmed to fail.
"Meddling and interference" in "democracy" or "election process" is no where codified by U.S. Code or states' statutes. But it sure is "click bait" --the transaction that produces revenue for the person supplying publishing services to an advertiser ("content creator"). Gah bless Free Trade.
"Collusion" and "conspiracy" are not crimes, because people collude and conspire every. fucking. day. They collude or conspire to realized some group, enterprise, corporate, company, organization purpose. Gah bless Trade Secrets.
Collusion or conspiracy to commit a crime [LISTED] is defined. But meddle and interfere in democracy and election process is undefined by USC. Since Mueller has been unable as yet to pin even one of the [LIST] to any foreign or domestic, would you have him invent criminal conduct?
Or would you prefer he discover evidence of criminal conduct?
