The Oklahoman - - NEWS -

WASHINGTON — Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s old­est son re­leased a se­ries of pri­vate Twit­ter ex­changes be­tween him­self and Wik­iLeaks dur­ing and af­ter the 2016 elec­tion, in­clud­ing pleas from the web­site to pub­li­cize its leaks.

Don­ald Trump Jr.’s re­lease of the mes­sages on Twit­ter came hours af­ter The At­lantic first re­ported them Mon­day. In the ex­changes — some of them around the time that the web­site was re­leas­ing the stolen emails from Demo­crat Hil­lary Clin­ton’s cam­paign chair­man — Wik­iLeaks praises his fa­ther’s pos­i­tive comments about Wik­iLeaks and asks Trump Jr. to re­lease his fa­ther’s tax re­turns to the site.

In an in­tel­li­gence as­sess­ment re­leased last Jan­uary, the NSA, CIA and FBI con­cluded that Rus­sian mil­i­tary in­tel­li­gence pro­vided hacked in­for­ma­tion from the DNC and “se­nior Demo­cratic of­fi­cials” to Wik­iLeaks.
