Trump Jr. was in contact with WikiLeaks during the 2016 election

WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy website that has drawn scrutiny over its apparently pro-Russia stance, was in touch with Donald Trump Jr. between September 2016 and July 2017, The Atlantic reported on Monday.
     At the time, Donald Trump was the Republican nominee for president in the 2016 election and was running against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Here's a timeline of WikiLeaks' correspondence with Trump Jr. leading up to and after the election."A PAC run anti-Trump site putintrump.org is about to launch," WikiLeaks wrote, according to documents obtained by The Atlantic. "The PAC is a recycled pro-Iraq war PAC. We have guessed the password. It is 'putintrump.' See 'About' for who is behind it. Any comments?"
     Trump Jr. reportedly replied, "Off the record I don't know who that is, but I'll ask around. Thanks."
     On the day he received the message from WikiLeaks, Trump Jr. emailed high-ranking campaign officials — including Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Brad Parscale, and Jared Kushner — and told them WikiLeaks had made contact. Kushner forwarded the email to Hope Hicks, who worked as a communications staffer on the campaign. She is currently the White House's director of communications.
