Trump Jr. posts exchange with WikiLeaks
President Donald Trump’s oldest son released Monday a series of private Twitter exchanges between himself and WikiLeaks during and after the 2016 election.
The messages started in October 2016 when a user on the WikiLeaks Twitter account messaged Donald Trump Jr. and asked him to promote an article that included critical comments Hillary Clinton made about WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange.
After the emails were released, WikiLeaks sent Trump Jr. a searchable link of their contents.
Trump Jr. tweeted that link two days later on Oct. 14, 2016, The Atlantic reported.
Trump Jr. released the messages publicly Monday and blamed one of the congressional committees for leaking the messages to The Atlantic.
