Very Illuminating Messages Between WikiLeaks and Don Jr

Donald Trump Jr. worked on his father's 2016 campaign

Wikileaks asked Donald Trump Jr.to get his father, then-President-elect Donald Trump, to suggest that Australia nominate Julian Assange as its United States ambassador, The Atlantic reported Monday as a part of an expose on the Twitter direct messages sent between Wikileaks and Trump Jr.

At the time, Hillary Clinton seemed en route to a victory on election day.

"Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us", WikiLeaks allegedly said in a private Twitter message to Trump Jr.

During one exchange, WikiLeaks messaged Trump Jr.in late September 2016 warning him that a new anti-Trump site was "about to launch" and provided him with the site's password after guessing it was "putintrump".

"Already did that earlier today", Trump Jr. responded an hour-and-a-half later. "It's fantastic what she can get away with".

Minutes later, Trump Jr. asked WikiLeaks "what's behind this Wednesday leak I keep reading about?" "Any comments?" WikiLeaks wrote, the Atlantic reported.

A lawyer for Trump jnr, Alan Futerfas, told the Atlantic: "we can say with confidence that we have no concerns about these documents and any questions raised about them have been easily answered in the appropriate forum".

Wikileaks continued to send messages to Trump Jr.in the final few weeks of the presidential election.

WikiLeaks, an organization dedicated to publishing leaked information, reportedly thanked Trump Jr. on October 12, 2016, after Trump talked about its publications at a campaign rally, two days before. In fact, Trump Jr. reached out to ask WikiLeaks about rumors of a planned release, but there's no indication that he got a response. Writer Julia Ioffe discovered them after the messages were turned over to Congress as part of the investigations into Russian involvement in the election. Wikileaks wrote to Trump Jr. WikiLeaks was instrumental in distributing emails stolen from the Clinton campaign - now believed to have been stolen as part of a Russian influence campaign - but the Trump campaign repeatedly denied any direct coordination with WikiLeaks. The messages, obtained by The Atlantic, were given to Congress as part on ongoing investigations into Russia's alleged attempt to influence the US election, and show the organization telling Trump Jr. that his father - then president-elect - should push Australia to make Assange its USA ambassador. In addition, the outlet notes that WikiLeaks also asked Don Jr. if he'd send them his father's tax returns.
