According to the Atlantic, the "largely one-sided" correspondence continued until July 2017 and mostly involved WikiLeaks sending messages to Trump jnr that he didn't respond to. He claimed WikiLeaks does not keep record of those messages and that the The Atlantic's report "does not have the full context". "We have guessed the password".

The messages were turned over by Trump congressional investigators, and were apparently leaked to The Atlantic.

Trump Jr. might not have responded often (although he did a few times in the beginning), but he tweeted and shared some of what WikiLeaks was feeding him, including a link to the trove of emails that he was sent in a DM from WikiLeaks. "Former Trump adviser Roger Stone had just tweeted "[email protected] is done. "It would be real easy and helpful for your dad to suggest that Australia appoint Assange ambassador to DC". "Hey Donald, great to see you and your dad talking about our publications", WikiLeaks wrote. "For those who have the time to read about all the corruption and hypocrisy all the @wikileaks emails are right here:", he wrote.

Wojnarowski also reports Russell will undergo further evaluation on the knee. However, he had looked much better during his last handful of outings.

Trump no point rebuffed WikiLeaks' attempts at contact, even though the USA intelligence community had already concluded that the organization had published stolen documents and operated on behalf of Russian interests. Trump jnr responded that he "already did that earlier today". "Obama/Clinton placed pressure on Sweden, UK and Australia (his home country) to illicitly go after Mr. Assange", the account wrote to Trump Jr.

The chats, which were also handed over to congressional investigators, started last summer after WikiLeaks began releasing a trove of emails poached by hackers from prominent Democratic Party members-the product of Kremlin-directed cyberattacks, according to the USA intelligence community, as well as multiple private security firms that examined the DNC's corpse of a server.

WikiLeaks added that Australia would not appoint Assange ambassador to the USA, but that the request from Trump alone would force Australia, the United Kingdom, and Sweden to "stop bending" the law "to ingratiate themselves with the Clintons". "So dishonest! Rigged system!"

New high blood pressure guidelines
But the report's authors predicted that relatively few of those who fall into the new hypertensive category will need medication. The change means that 46 percent of USA adults, many of them under the age of 45, now will be considered hypertensive.

Between this news and the remaining questions about Trump Jr's meeting a year ago with a Kremlin lawyer, there are a lot of Twitter users who aren't very impressed with the president's son right now.

"Putting aside the question as to why or by whom such documents, provided to Congress under promises of confidentiality, have been selectively leaked, 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", said the lawyer, Alan Futerfas.

Trump repeatedly refused to release his tax returns during the campaign, but WikiLeaks wanted to leak them, and asked Trump Jr. whether the campaign would allow WikiLeaks to leak "one or more" of Trump's tax returns. WikiLeaks attempted to convince Trump turn his emails with publicist Rob Goldstone about the meeting over to WikiLeaks.
