    Trump Jr's "disclosure" is bullshit. You can delete DMs, including ones you sent, from your records.

    Twitter needs to provide the whole conversation. Congress should subpoena that right away.

    Just before the stroke of midnight on September 20, 2016, at the height of last year’s presidential election, the Wikileaks Twitter account sent a private direct message to Donald Trump Jr., the Republican nominee’s oldest son and campaign surrogate. “A PAC run anti-Trump site putintrump.org is about to launch,” Wikileaks wrote. “The PAC is a recycled pro-Iraq war PAC. We have guessed the password. It is ‘putintrump.’ See ‘About’ for who is behind it. Any comments?” (The site, which has since become a joint project with Mother Jones, was founded by Rob Glaser, a tech entrepreneur, and was funded by Progress for USA Political Action Committee.) The next morning, about 12 hours later, Trump Jr. responded to Wikileaks. “Off the record I don’t know who that is, but I’ll ask around,” he wrote on September 21, 2016. “Thanks.”

    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.

    “Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us,” Wikileaks went on, pointing Trump Jr. to the link wlsearch.tk, which it said would help Trump’s followers dig through the trove of stolen documents and find stories. “There’s many great stories the press are missing and we’re sure some of your follows [sic] will find it,” Wikileaks went on. “Btw we just released Podesta Emails Part 4.” Trump Jr. did not respond to this message, but two days later, on October 14, 2016, he tweeted out the link Wikileaks had provided him. “For those who have the time to read about all the corruption and hypocrisy all the @wikileaks emails are right here: http://wlsearch.tk/,” he wrote.

    Muller is going to have a field day with this one - unless he already knows about it.
    And 15 MINS after Jr.'s email exchange, Sr. responds PUBLICLY. Just a coincidence. Nothing to see here. Moving on.

    163 TIMES TRUMP MENTIONED WIKILEAKs. Does anyone else find that PECULIAR?

    Nixon looks like a piker compared to this group. Perhaps NIXON needed sons instead of 2 useless daughters who wouldn't do their father's dirty work or take a bullet for their old man!!

    From my link

    The messages, obtained by The Atlantic, were also turned over by Trump Jr.’s lawyers to congressional investigators. They are part of a long—and largely one-sided—correspondence between WikiLeaks and the president’s son that continued until at least July 2017. The messages show WikiLeaks, a radical transparency organization that the American intelligence community believes was chosen by the Russian government to disseminate the information it had hacked, actively soliciting Trump Jr.’s cooperation. WikiLeaks made a series of increasingly bold requests, including asking for Trump’s tax returns, urging the Trump campaign on Election Day to reject the results of the election as rigged, and requesting that the president-elect tell Australia to appoint Julian Assange ambassador to the United States.

    Right, Trump Jr. is a dumbass, he really believes he's covered because he pulled the whole conversation, deleted all of the incriminating messages he sent, and then turned it over. Absolutely no one should accept a Twitter DM conversation copy from a subject of investigation as evidence of what was said.

    If Wikileaks will not provide the the whole, unabridged conversation --- which should surprise no one --- then Twitter needs to get a subpoeana for it. I believe that may be necessary, Twitter can disclose private tweets but DMs are considered a form of email and they can't just turn them over without the users' permission except in compliance with a court order.

    I think Mueller will see it as criminal conspiracy to violate our election laws.
    The legal word here is "Conspiracy" as collusion has no legal meaning.

    There's enough evidence out in public right now to warrant indictments and possible conviction.
    Hurry up SC Mueller!

    News alert! Hillary isn't President. I'm sure Sessions will look into it. First things first. Sessions will be busy today trying to rehash his lies.
