In this case it's not so much the hacking but the notion that the hacking seems to be aimed at influencing the election.
To clarify, if ur balls deep in institutionalised hacking yourself dont complain when someone hacks you.
Of course, the US could indeed be considered a pot in that regard as well. Still, it feels icky.
In any case, it is what it is. And so far, nothing very surprising or shocking seems to have surfaced.

Trump should dump him and put Bernie in for VP.

These two just can't seem to get on the same page. I guess Pence must have ideas of his own (as horrible and barbaric as some might be like taxpayer funded "conversion therapy") and so he's not suceptible to the whispers of pro-Putin advisors/propagandists, Steve Bannon, morons on Twitter and whoever else is around that he can sponge ideas from.
Trump charges U.S. election results being rigged 'at many polling places'
On Sunday, Pence for the second time in recent weeks broke from Trump on Russia, this time on that country's possible involvement in email hacks tied to the U.S. election, saying Moscow should face "severe consequences" if it has compromised U.S. email security.
"I think there's no question that the evidence continues to point in that direction," Pence said. "There should be severe consequences to Russia or any sovereign nation that is compromising the privacy or the security of the United States of America," Pence said on "Fox News Sunday."
Their statements regarding the election outcome don't line up either or I should say Pence is still citing Trump from when he was saying that the candidates would "absolutely accept" the outcome of the elections. Apparently hasn't had enough tim to catch up to the crazy yet.

I think he wanted Russia to leak the emails if they had them not to dig up dirt on anyone. According to recently released FBI docs, a file from the Blumenthal hack was found on a Romanian server, not a Russian server.
Trump’s de facto campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was a longtime consultant to Viktor Yanukovich, the Russian-backed president of Ukraine who was overthrown in 2014. Manafort also has done multimillion-dollar business deals with Russian oligarchs. Trump’s foreign policy advisor Carter Page has his own business ties to the state-controlled Russian oil giant Gazprom. … Another Trump foreign policy advisor, retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, flew to Moscow last year to attend a gala banquet celebrating Russia Today, the Kremlin’s propaganda channel, and was seated at the head table near Putin.
Podesta has suggested Stone was in on the email released, but he’s denied this. A NBC report from Wednesday reported Stone saying that the claim was “categorically false,” even though admitted that he has a link to the organization.
“I have a back-channel communications with WikiLeaks,” he said. “But they certainly don’t clear or tell me in advance what they’re going to do.”
Podesta pointed to a Tweet Stone posted on August 21, which stated: “Trust me, it will soon [be] Podesta’s time in the barrel.”
Seven weeks later Podesta’s private emails were made public.

Homeland Security is being too gracious. Multiple, independent security experts have come to the same conclusion based on the evidence collected by CrowdStrike. I went over this a bit here.
Pence and Trump are definitely not on the same page. Pence has all but entirely conceded that the Russians are reponsible and even talking consequences. Trump is still pretending like it's "all a mystery!"
