CNN Misreports Date of 'Incriminating' Email to Trump Campaign

Donald Trump and son 'offered early access' to hacked Wikileaks documents during 2016 campaign Email shows effort to give Trump campaign WikiLeaks documents: CNN
Eleanor Moreno | 09 December, 2017, 13:54

As The Washington Post noted in their report, the hacked emails offered to the Trump campaign were already public on September 14; they were published only a day earlier. But the Washington Post revealed that the message was actually sent on September 14, pointing out Wikileaks material that had been released a day earlier.

Congressional investigators are uncertain who the person is and CNN was unable to contact the individual.

In fact, the email was sent to Trump and his son on September 14, 2016, the day after WikiLeaks had released the documents publicly on its website and Twitter account. That report, which ABC News has said was not fully vetted through its editorial standards process, was later corrected to say that Flynn was prepared to testify the instruction came while Trump was president-elect. However, the email in question was actually sent on Sep.

"CNN's initial reporting of the date on an email sent to members of the Trump campaign about WikiLeaks documents, which was confirmed by two sources close to CNN, was incorrect", CNN said in a statement.


Futerfas said that he and Trump Jr. had been required to surrender their electronic devices during the interview for security reasons. The sender thought he had obtained then-candidate Trump's email. Most U.S. intelligence officials say that Wikileaks is a nefarious organization - Trump's own CIA Director, Mike Pompeo, described them as a "non-state hostile intelligence service".

The writer, who said his name was Michael J. Erickson and described himself as the president of an aviation management company, sent the message to the then-Republican nominee as well as his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., and other top advisers.

To wit, Trumps favorite fake news network has issued a correction to a Friday morning “exclusive” claiming that Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign staff received a directive from Wikileaks to download a trove of emails stolen from the DNC before those emails were made public. "As a result, the Committees received documents from us that were junk mail or otherwise meaningless". "PEBS00039-topic.html" class="local_link" >Donald Trump Jr. He pointed out that the information in the email had already been publicly disclosed and said that the committee knows this and knows that Trump Jr. did not respond to Erickson because it was "all discussed during the interview". "We never responded to the email". The timeline is crucial because it proves Trump Jr. was not trading unknown information, but that someone was alerting him to information already made public.
