DNC on Trump Jr.’s Wikileaks Correspondence

In response to reports that Donald Trump Jr. corresponded with Wikileaks during the 2016 election, DNC deputy communications director Adrienne Watson released the following statement:

“Donald Trump Jr. repeatedly communicated with Wikileaks at a time when it was already clear to the world that the site was acting as a co-conspirator in Russia’s unprecedented election meddling. Trump Jr.’s communications with Wikileaks reveal a blatant disregard for our national security and prove once again that ‘America First’ was nothing more than a slogan to the Trump family.

“Congress must commit to protecting the investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. The American people want answers.”
