Trump and Junior Got Email Flagging ‘WikiLeaks Documents’

Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., and others in their organization received an email two months prior to the 2016 election offering them access to hacked “WikiLeaks documents,” CNN reported Friday morning. The email, which was provided to congressional investigators, was reportedly sent Sept. 4 from someone listed as “Mike Erickson.” Hours later, however, The Washington Post reported that the email was actually from Sept. 14, thereby indicating the sender may have been flagging leaks that were already publicly available at that point. In terms of the pre-election timeline, the email came several months after the Democratic National Committee leaks but before the dump of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails. Trump Jr. claimed this week that he had “no recollection” and his attorney said the email was among thousands of unsolicited notes the organization never responded to.
