As part of its investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Congress received a cache of Twitter direct messages between Donald Trump Jr. and WikiLeaks-at least some of those messages have now been leaked to The Atlantic.

On Oct. 12, WikiLeaks wrote Trump Jr. saying "Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us".

They ranged from questions to a request for the Trump campaign to "push" a story to requests for leaks, but he appears not to have answered majority. "It's awesome what she can get away with", The Atlantic reported Monday. The communications largely consisted of WikiLeaks offering information and advice to Trump Jr., and asking for things ranging from Donald Trump's tax returns to a recommendation for an ambassadorship for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. WikiLeaks suggested that doing so would rob his opponents of a valuable talking point, according to The Atlantic.

According to The Atlantic, Trump Jr. replied, "Off the record I don't know who that is, but I'll ask around".

A lawyer for Trump jnr, Alan Futerfas, told the Atlantic: "we can say with confidence that we have no concerns about these documents and any questions raised about them have been easily answered in the appropriate forum". Two days later, on October 14, 2016, Trump jnr tweeted out the link.

When Ars asked Twitter whether some users' DMs had been turned over to Congressional investigators or the Office of Special Counsel, which is also investigating possible Russian government efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, Emily Horne, a Twitter spokeswoman, declined comment. "There's many great stories the press are missing and we're sure some of your follows [sic] will find it", WikiLeaks went on. But the law seems pretty clear. Wikileaks wrote to Trump Jr. Trump jnr did not respond. Leaked emails published by The New York Times show Trump Jr. arranged the meeting at Trump Tower in New York. WikiLeaks also variously asked Jr.to leak his father's tax returns ("If we publish them it will dramatically improve the perception of our impartiality."); tell Australia to appoint WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as US Ambassador; and, on Election Day previous year, to challenge the results if Clinton won ("Hi Don if your father "loses" we think it is much more interesting if he DOES NOT conceed [sic] and spends time CHALLENGING the media and other types of rigging that occurred-as he has implied that he might do.").
