In March 2017, I wrote “Wikileaks Appears To Shape Up As Golden Shower” whereby I described that the nature of leaks compromises the reputation of WikiLeaks as a truth seeker. Now we learn that Donald Trump Jr was in contact with WikiLeaks.
The Atlantic reports that the exchanged messages were also turned over by Trump Jr.’s lawyers to congressional investigators. The messages show WikiLeaks, a radical transparency organization that the American intelligence community believes was chosen by the Russian government to disseminate the information it had hacked, actively soliciting Trump Jr.’s cooperation.
Trump Jr.’s June 2016 meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer with connections to Russia’s powerful prosecutor general, is already reportedly a subject of interest in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. The messages exchanged with WikiLeaks add a second instance in which Trump Jr. appears eager to obtain damaging information about Hillary Clinton.
Considering that Trump Jr., Jeret Kushner, Jeff Sessions, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Michael Flynn and Wilbur Ross actively have either lied or failed to disclose important information, it is impossible to assume that Donald Trump had no idea what is going on.
It is also necessary to highlight that since Donald Trump was the Republican Party’s nominee for 2016 presidential elections, the Republican Party shall also assume responsibility and face all related consequences.
