Super thirsty WikiLeaks slid into Donald Trump Jr.'s DMs

Four days later, WikiLeaks began publishing emails stolen from Clinton's campaign director John Podesta. He later learns this gave hackers access to his account. Jeff Sessions attend the meeting. He also has come under scrutiny for agreeing to meet with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower who he was told wanted to provide "dirt" about Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on behalf of the Russian government. After The Atlantic reported on the correspondence, Trump Jr. tweeted the messages himself.

— Late April 2016: The Democratic National Committee becomes aware of the scope of the monthslong intrusion into its email systems by hackers whom USA intelligence agencies later linked to the Russian government.

The correspondence continued until at least July of this year. Trump Jr. arranged the meeting after he received an email promising incriminating information about the Clinton campaign.

Futerfas noted that Trump jnr ignored several of WikiLeaks' suggestions, including that he leak his father's tax returns to the group.

Donald Trump Jr's response came after they were leaked to The Atlantic website. Goldstone describes it as part of a Russian government effort to aid Trump's campaign. "Thanks", Trump Jr. responded about 12 hours later.

— June 9, 2016: Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Manafort attend a meeting at Trump Tower in NY with a Russian lawyer named Natalia Veselnitskaya, who promised to provide the Trump campaign damaging information about Clinton.

As The Atlantic points out, USA intelligence agencies believe that the Russian government was using WikiLeaks as a way to disperse hacked information, and in this message WikiLeaks seems to be looking for ways to push back against that perception and to seem less anti-Clinton while. publishing a "vast amount of stuff" on Clinton.

And it seems the WikiLeaks info made its way up to Donald Trump occasionally. Assange turns him down. The messages began in September 2016 and ran through July.

At the time, rumors were widespread that WikiLeaks would soon release damaging Clinton-related emails. Those messages have since been shared with congressional investigators who are exploring potential links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, according to The Atlantic.

The messages in Ioffe's story suggest overall that WikiLeaks and Trump Jr. viewed each other as allies. Donald Jr. then asked: "What's behind this Wednesday leak I keep reading about?" Trump Jr. did not answer.

"'Hey Donald, great to see you and your dad talking about our publications, ' WikiLeaks wrote".

Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us. Trump Jr. does not appear to respond, but 15 minutes later, his father tweeted: "Very little pick-up by the dishonest media of incredible information provided by WikiLeaks. So dishonest! Rigged system!"

"WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service". WikiLeaks has denied that Russian Federation was the source of emails it released, including those from Podesta's private email account. To say that there is no evidence of collusion, then, would be one more big lie in a series of big lies the administration has deployed to defend itself in the Russian Federation investigation that threatens to sink this presidency. Papadopoulos is interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russians.

Donald Trump's son Donald Jr was in contact with whistleblowing site Wikileaks in the crucial weeks leading up to the 2016 presidential election, it has emerged. Trump Jr. then releases copies of the communications on Twitter.
