As his first 100 days draws closer, President Trump is facing multiple investigations over allegations that his campaign may have been involved with Russian officials to steer the election in his favor. Now Julian Assange, the mastermind behind WikiLeaks, is coming forward in another attempt to set the record straight. The Russians were NOT involved whatsoever in their leaked information.
Just before the Democratic National Convention last July, WikiLeaks published 20,000 internal emails from the Democratic National Committee. Then, between October 7 and Election Day, WikiLeaks would go on to publish 20,000 of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s emails, generating a rash of negative stories about the Clinton campaign. Intelligence agencies have pinned the email hacking on Russians. WikiLeaks maintains Russia was not the source of the documents.
