WikiLeaks info email sent to Trumps

Trump hit back at the report saying he'seldom if ever watches CNN

"It is profoundly disappointing that members of the House Intelligence Committee would deliberately leak a document, with the misleading suggestion that the information was not public, when they know that there is not a scintilla of evidence that Mr. Trump Jr. read or responded to the email".

Then, Trump went after ABC's Brian Ross, who reported fake news about Russian collusion last week.

The email - sent the afternoon of September 14, 2016 - noted that "Wikileaks has uploaded another (huge 678 mb) archive of files from the DNC" and included a link and a "decryption key", according to a copy obtained by The Washington Post. CNN initially claimed the Wikileaks email was dated September 4 – ten days before the watchdog publicly released its filings. "Did you see all the corrections the media's been making?".

CNN issued a correction and a statement on Friday afternoon.

"Candidate Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., and others in the Trump Organization received an email in September 2016 offering a decryption key and website address for hacked WikiLeaks documents, according to an email provided to congressional investigators", CNN reported.

The later email date reported by The Post means that Trump Jr.'s first tweet about WikiLeaks could not possibly have been prompted by the email, since the president's eldest son did not receive the message until 10 days after tweeting.

Though there's only a ten-day difference between CNN's original date and the corrected date stamped on their new piece, the timeline is crucial. The DNC files shared with Trump Jr. via a link and a "decryption key" on September 14, 2016, had been posted online and advertised on Twitter by WikiLeaks the day before.

CNN has corrected a story that suggested the Trump campaign had been tipped off early about Wikileaks documents damaging to Hillary Clinton when it later learned the alert was about documents already publicly available. "The email was not sent until 10 days later, after the Wikileaks documents were already public".

Congressional investigators are trying to determine whether the individual who sent the September email is legitimate.

CBS News published a photo of the email - which did not include any information on the date it was sent.

"I hope this information help (sic) you", the email said, with the writer noting that the "huge" archive of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee was 678 megabytes. Those sources obviously were Democrat committee members or staffers; Donald Jr. testified about the email before the Intelligence Committee on Wednesday.
