A Major Evidence Linking Donald Trump Jr. To Wikileaks Was Just Revealed

Published

As the investigation into Russian collusion continues to loom over the White House, a new Report published by The Atlantic reported Monday has revealed that Donald Trump Jr. had extensive communication with WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential campaign and appears to have acted on requests made by a Kremlin-connected organization.

A cache of Twitter messages obtained by the Atlantic on Monday revealed that Donald Trump Jr. communicated with WikiLeaks on a number of occasions, starting in September last year and spanning until at least July this year.

According to the report, WikiLeaks contacted Trump Jr. via his Twitter account two months before Election Day, informing the Trump son over a direct message that an anti- Trump PAC was about to launch a website called putintrump.org.

“The PAC is a recycled pro-Iraq war PAC,” the WikiLeaks handle wrote, “We have guessed the password. It is ‘putintrump.’ See ‘About’ for who is behind it. Any comment?”

“Off the record, I don’t know who that is, but I’ll ask around. Thanks,” Trump Jr. responded about 12 hours later.

According to the report, Trump Jr. made good on that promise.

A source familiar with the congressional investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election told the Atlantic that Trump Jr. contacted a number of senior Trump campaign officials hours after receiving those messages, telling them that WikiLeaks had made contact. The officials included Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Brad Pascale and President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who in turn forwarded the information to communications staffer Hope Hicks.

WikiLeaks also made more brazen requests, such as asking Trump Jr. to coax his father into telling Australia to appoint its founder, Julian Assange, ambassador to the United States.

Trump Jr. at no point rebuffed WikiLeaks’ attempts at contact, even though the U.S. intelligence community had already concluded that the organization had published stolen documents and operated on behalf of Russian interests, according to the report.

Trump Is Officially Under Investigation For Fraud By The NY District Attorney: NYT

Published

on

The Manhattan district attorney’s office is “investigating President Donald Trump and his company for bank and insurance fraud,” the New York Times reported Monday.

According to The Times, “the office of the district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., made the disclosure in a new federal court filing arguing Mr. Trump should have to comply with its subpoena seeking eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns.”

“The reports, including investigations into the president’s wealth and an article on the congressional testimony of his former lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, said that the president may have illegally inflated his net worth and the value of his properties to lenders and insurers. Lawyers for Mr. Trump have said he did nothing wrong.”

The newspaper also reported that Trump has asked a judge to declare the subpoena invalid.

The news comes less than a month after the Supreme Court, in a major ruling on the limits of presidential power, cleared the way for Mr. Vance’s prosecutors to seek Mr. Trump’s financial records.

The Times also noted that the investigation is a “significantly broader inquiry than the prosecutors have acknowledged in the past.”
