Donald Trump Jr. has released a chain of private Twitter messages he had with WikiLeaks during the 2016 Presidential election which his father won.
Trump Jr. made the chain of messages public after a report in “The Atlantic” detailed his conversations with WikiLeaks during last year’s presidential campaign.
The correspondence was largely one-sided with WikiLeaks making suggestions about the Trump campaign or asking for comments.

Trump Jr. responded to several messages, including one in which he asks about rumors he’d heard of a leak that was about to drop.
Trump Jr. turned the messages over to congressional investigators.
