For almost a year, WikiLeaks was DMing with Donald Trump Jr

According to the report, these messages are part of a long correspondence between WikiLeaks and Trump Jr., though Trump Jr. reportedly ignored many ofthe messages.

Donald Trump Jr. occasionally direct-messaged on Twitter with WikiLeaks, beginning in September 2016 and continuing through the presidential election and beyond, CBS News has confirmed. More than once, WikiLeaks requested that members of the Trump campaign push stories published on the site, most of which focused on alleged Clinton wrongdoing. Speaking to supporters at the rally on October 10, Trump held up some documents and said, "This just came out". Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us (a link was included). "There's many great stories the press are missing and we're sure some of your follows [sic] will find it", WikiLeaks continued, according to The Atlantic. Trump Jr. did not respond to every message, The Atlantic reported.

In July 2017, Donald Trump Jr. took it upon himself to present the public with possibly the first evidence of Trump campaign collusion with Russia - although Robert Mueller and the Senate will make the final determinations on that matter - when he released his own emails that led up to his July 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians.

Wikileaks even crafted a Trump-esque message for the soon-to-be president to read. He also told several top Trump campaign staffers by email that WikiLeaks had reached out to him, back in September 2016.

New evidence revealed this week brought new charges in the hazing death of Penn State University student Timothy Piazza. Reports from after Piazza's death showed other instances of fraternity members attempting to cover up the situation.

"Off the record I don't know who that is, but I'll ask around", Trump Jr. responded the next day.

She writes: "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".

And of course, The Atlantic obtained the messages between Don Jr. and WikiLeaks as part of a leak after Don Jr.'s lawyers handed them over to Congress.

About a month before the election-and 15 minutes after WikiLeaks notified Trump Jr. that it had released the fourth set of emails stolen from Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta-then-candidate Trump tweeted, "Very little pick-up by the dishonest media of incredible information provided by WikiLeaks". "Obama/Clinton placed pressure on Sweden, UK and Australia (his home country) to illicitly go after Mr. Assange", the account wrote to Trump Jr. Like his son, he cited the leaked Clinton emails often. However, there's no indication that the group answered this question from Trump Jr. or gave him advance notice.
