FBI Director James Comey told the House Intelligence Committee that “The Russian intelligence services hacked into a number of enterprises in United States, including the Democratic National Committee” and that Russian intelligence used “cutouts” like WikiLeaks “to cover up that they were the ones releasing” stolen information.

Donald Trump, October 10, 2016: “I love WikiLeaks.”

Donald Trump, July 27, 2016: “Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.” (Referring to Hillary Clinton’s personal email.)

Also on July 23, 2016 and January 4, 2017, Trump tweets used WikiLeaks and Julian Assange as sources of information he was spreading with enthusiasm.

Just a reminder.
