Exclusive: Email shows effort to give Trump campaign WikiLeaks documents
In a subsequent statement, Futerfas said that the only reason the House Intelligence Committee has this email is "because we took our responsibilities seriously and conducted searches for the broad categories of documents they requested". He also tweeted that CNN's "democratic sources" are trying to push a false narrative.
In a tweet Saturday, the president also criticized ABC News and reporter Brian Ross for a recent, incorrect story that Trump, as a candidate in the 2016 White House race, had illegally instructed campaign member Mike Flynn to make contact with Russian Federation, in an apparent attempt to help defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
In the final months before the 2016 United States election, Donald Trump and his son, Donald Trump, Jr, both received an email containing a link and "decryption key" for Wikileaks files, CNN reported.
A 2016 email sent to President Trump and top aides pointed the campaign to hacked documents from the Democratic National Committee that had already been made public by the group WikiLeaks a day earlier. It's not clear whether the email was a real effort to give the hacked documents to the Trump campaign. CNN said the email was sent on September 4, before the WikiLeaks release, but the copy of the email obtained by AP shows it was sent 10 days later.
The September 4 email was sent during the final stretch of the 2016 presidential race - on the same day that Trump Jr. first tweeted about WikiLeaks and Clinton.
"I won't hold my breath for an apology, or for you to call out your puppet masters on the left that fed you BS knowing you would gleefully run with it without ever checking the other side", Trump Jr.
CNN's Manu Raju went on air to offer a correction on the story over two hours after the Post cast doubt on the flawed report.
The president has frequently dismissed CNN as "fake news", particularly when the network runs unflattering stories about his administration. "Their slogan should be CNN, THE LEAST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS!" the President tweeted Saturday. They apologized. Oh, thank you, CNN.
"We're going to cut right through the fake news media". The correction undercut the main thrust of CNN's story, which had been seized on by critics of President Trump as evidence of coordination between WikiLeaks and the Trump campaign.
