The former director of the CIA has said Donald Trump Jr’s direct message exchanges with Wikileaks ahead of the 2016 US presidential election ‘take your breath away’.
According to a report in The Atlantic the WikiLeaks Twitter account sent a series of direct messages to Donald Trump Jr – the eldest son of President Donald Trump.
The messages have since been sent to congressional investigators who are exploring potential links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
The US intelligence services have said they believe Wikileaks was chosen by the Russian government as the means by which to broadcast information it had hacked.
The organisation’s release of emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta had a major impact on the public discourse ahead of the election.
Asked by CNN whether he thought the President’s eldest son had been ‘moronic’ to think that direct messages on Twitter constituted an ‘off the record’ discussion – former CIA boss Michael Hayden said ‘it takes your breath away’ and added: ‘When I read the story I was just shaking my head’.
