Can We Say the Trump Campaign Engaged in Treason Yet?
With each new bombshell the question begs. Roger Stone, Peter Smith, the Mercers, Cambridge Analytica-all reached out to Wikileaks.
Papadopoulos who was told by the Russians in April of 2016 that they had ‘thousands of emails’ on Hillary Clinton.
When Peter Smith wanted to commission Matt Tait to hack Hillary’s server in September of 2016 he stated that he’s discussed this with Michael Flynn and suggested he’d spoken to other senior people in the Trump campaign like Kushner, Bannon, and Kellyann Conway.
In this new stunning case where Assange personally reached out to Don Jr-and Jr answered and responded several times that we know of-as Natasha Bertrand pointed out on Twitter last night, you CAN erase DM messages on Twitter-Jr actually informed other high ranking members of the Trump campaign.
“Though Trump Jr. mostly ignored the frequent messages from WikiLeaks, he at times appears to have acted on its requests. When WikiLeaks first reached out to Trump Jr. about putintrump.org, for instance, Trump Jr. followed up on his promise to “ask around.” According to a source familiar with the congressional investigations into Russian interference with the 2016 campaign, who requested anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, on the same day that Trump Jr. received the first message from WikiLeaks, he emailed other senior officials with the Trump campaign, including Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Brad Parscale, and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, telling them WikiLeaks had made contact. Kushner then forwarded the email to campaign communications staffer Hope Hicks. At no point during the 10-month correspondence does Trump Jr. rebuff WikiLeaks, which had published stolen documents and was already observed to be releasing information that benefited Russian interests.”
The same folks who Peter Smith said knew of his own attempts to reach out to Wikileaks to hack Hillary’ server.
As for digital director Brad Parscale he had a poster at campaign headquarters with this caption above it:
I mean at this point the question begs was this another ‘joke’ or was this actual fact? Had Assange read her classified emails or told the Trump campaign he had?
Let’s take a step back and remember what the Russia investigation is actually investigating: that is, the question of whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russia’s interference in our election?
We KNOW Russia interfered the live question is wether the Trump campaign colluded with this interference.
It’s getting tougher not to answer affirmatively.
Meanwhile, Don Jr is making much of releasing the messages himself.
This seems to be his modus operandi. Of course, we never know if that’s all the messages or not. And the three he did respond to were explosive enough-especially his informing Bannon, Kushner, Conway, et. al.
It’s worth noting that it is very easy for the sender of a DM to delete it. Only way to be sure that Trump Jr (whose lawyer hasn’t responded to my q about this) published full exchange is for Wikileaks to release its copy. But Assange is now saying WL doesn’t keep those records.

Of course, the FBI can get the full records from Twitter.
P.S. I’m Mike Sax, I’m running for Congress in the NY 2nd District and I’m a Hillary Clinton Democrat.
Meeting her recently was one of the biggest honors in my life to stand next to such a fine public servant and trailblazer. She seemed to like our Impeachment Train campaign t shirts too!
Think of the shirt as a one time investment in restoring legitimacy to this country.
And please donate so we can compete with Peter King’s $4 million. I know no lobbyists or millionaires like Peter King. Small donations are the engine of the Mike Sax NY2 campaign. Together we can do it. Because we must.
