"Don Jr was DM buddies with wikileaks"

Uh oh Donnie Jr.


https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/11/the-secret-correspondence-between-donald-trump-jr-and-wikileaks/545738/


Here's a good part:

According to a source familiar with the congressional investigations into Russian interference with the 2016 campaign, who requested anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, on the same day that Trump Jr. received the first message from Wikileaks, he emailed other senior officials with the Trump campaign, including Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Brad Parscale, and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, telling them Wikileaks had made contact. Kushner then forwarded the email to campaign communications staffer Hope Hicks. At no point during the 10-month correspondence does Trump, Jr. rebuff Wikileaks, which had published stolen documents and was already observed to be releasing information that benefited Russian interests.

but isn't it a bad idea to leak this information out before the investigation concludes?

Don't get me wrong, I personally like to hear that there's some meat to the investigative bones, but wouldn't it serve a better long term interest for this information to come out when the investigation concludes?

im not sure what the privacy protocol is for closed door testimony or the submission of relevant docs.

i dont know if they sign some sort of non disclosure agreement and promise to keep things under wraps.

i mean...the idea is to get the relevant info out to the public anyway when they issue their findings. releasing them before the conclusion isnt gonna interfere with their investigation like it would a criminal one.

either way...the congressional investigations have been leaking like a sieve and nobody seems to have an issue with it.

"The messages, obtained by The Atlantic, were also turned over by Trump Jr.’s lawyers to congressional investigators. They are part of a long—and largely one-sided—correspondence between WikiLeaks and the president’s son that continued until at least July 2017. 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. WikiLeaks made a series of increasingly bold requests, including asking for Trump's tax returns, urging the Trump campaign on Election Day to reject the results of the election as rigged, and requesting that the president-elect tell Australia to appoint Julian Assange ambassador to the United States."

But then there's this:

"Though Trump Jr. mostly ignored the frequent messages from WikiLeaks, he at times appears to have acted on its requests. When WikiLeaks first reached out to Trump Jr. about putintrump.org, for instance, Trump Jr. followed up on his promise to “ask around.” According to a source familiar with the congressional investigations into Russian interference with the 2016 campaign, who requested anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, on the same day that Trump Jr. received the first message from WikiLeaks, he emailed other senior officials with the Trump campaign, including Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Brad Parscale, and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, telling them WikiLeaks had made contact. Kushner then forwarded the email to campaign communications staffer Hope Hicks. At no point during the 10-month correspondence does Trump, Jr. rebuff WikiLeaks, which had published stolen documents and was already observed to be releasing information that benefited Russian interests."

In the end, Trump Jr. was a moron for even interacting with them off the rip.

they were just about exposing the truth and it didn't matter which side they exposed.

I always found it funny how OKP was on their nuts until they went after Hilldawg and then everyone turned on them.

To me all it showed was they aren't left leaning or right leaning.

shut up already, damn

Yes we should be very upset that journalistic organizations had correspondence with political campaigns. This has to be a first in politics.
