Donald Trump Jr releases Twitter exchanges with Wikileaks

Donald Trump Jr has released private Twitter correspondence with anti-secrecy website Wikileaks after a US magazine revealed they had communicated shortly before his father's election. Mr Trump Jr's lawyers handed the Twitter direct messages to congressional investigators. Messages show Wikileaks appeared to have first contacted Mr Trump Jr on 20 September, asking if he knew the origin of an anti-Trump website. The correspondence between September 2016 and July this year shows Wikileaks urging his father to share their Clinton files; asking him to supply his tax returns to Wikileaks and advising him to challenge the result if he lost the election. The Atlantic piece points out that while Mr Trump Jr didn't reply to later messages, timestamps from tweets show instances where he appears to have "Acted on its requests" by mentioning or sharing Wikileaks stories.
