Blumenthal Statement on Donald Trump Jr. WIkiLeaks Correspondence

[WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement after new reporting detailed communications between Donald Trump Jr., and WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“These messages seem to indicate that President Trump’s son was actively engaged and may have been coordinating strategy with a known agent of the Russian government, WikiLeaks,” said Blumenthal. “We cannot know the full extent of these communications unless and until they are subpoenaed by Chairman Grassley. Even without the full exchange, there seems to be no reasonable innocent explanation for these messages. Chairman Grassley must issue subpoenas immediately for Donald Trump, Jr.’s testimony in a public forum, for the full documentation of his communications with WikiLeaks and any other Russian agents, and for all other relevant documents.”
