Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Some thoughts: If this intended to influence the runoff then it is probably bullshit. If there is anything solid in there than releasing it earlier would have increased its impact​.
On the other hand if this is about the legislative then there might be something to it
Despite all the fear and loathing about fake news and Russian propaganda the impact up to now seems to have been negligible. It might have been the straw that broke the camel's back in the US campaign but there were a thousand factors of equal weight. And in the Brexit case it doesn't even register next to the standard right wing oligarch drivel you can read in the not-fake-news.
Also we shouldn't lose sight of the simple fact that in the US case the leaks were true. I haven't looked at the allegations, but I don't see how you swing 20 points without evidence and time for digestion.
