Wikileaks has over 11 years of factual integrity.
On Sunday, Trump announced on Twitter that among other pressing issues he and his Russian counterpart had “discussed” was creating “an impenetrable Cyber Security unit.1”
“The organization also linked to a press release from March, in which it detailed a number of leaks linked to the CIA.
Trump’s announcement that he discussed the formation of a cyber security unit with Putin was met with criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike, given Russia’s alleged involvement in the U.S. election.
The president tweeted on Sunday: “I strongly pressed President Putin twice about Russian meddling in our election. He vehemently denied it. I’ve already given my opinion.”
“Putin & I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded,” he added.
Wikileaks has been the subject of criticism from President Trump following the commuting of Chelsea Manning’s sentence by former President Barack Obama.
Trump has referred to Manning as a traitor, The Hill reported, with Wikileaks responding by stating Trump was “wrong” to criticize Manning.
And Assange has not escaped criticism from Trump’s administration, with CIA director Mike Pompeo hitting out at the Wikileaks founder and Attorney General Jeff Sessions stating in April that the arrest of Assange was a priority.2”
