Donald Trump Jr.'s Communications With WikiLeaks May Not Exonerate Him

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted on Monday night what he claimed was the entirety of his communications to WikiLeaks. Founded by Julian Assange, WikiLeaks is an anti-secrecy website that published wave after wave of incriminating information on Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign. The agency repeatedly goaded him to push their hacked and leaked information, and to challenge the results of the election if they lose. According to Reuters, Trump Jr. alleges that he only responded to WikiLeaks three times. Trump Jr.'s release of the "entire chain of messages" comes after The Atlantic obtained and published the messages. But Business Insider reports the correspondence is incomplete, and doesn't match the full depth of the messages as reported by the Atlantic. That suggests it's possible Trump Jr. could have responded other times on another platform.Throughout the 2016 election, WikiLeaks consistently published leaked and hacked emails from the Clinton campaign, but spared the Trump campaign. Special counsel Robert Mueller, the investigator tasked with looking into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia — which is suspected to coordinate with WikiLeaks — has scrutinized Trump Jr.'s contact with Russian agents in the past. Trump Jr. also failed to disclose all his meetings with Russian-linked figures, and has since defended his actions as opposition research.
