WikiLeaks Set Off an Attack on Our Trump-Russia Project—Right After Messaging Donald Trump Jr. About It – Bill Buzenberg

“It is unclear who was behind the Twitter account that appeared to lead the targeting of PutinTrump.org on September 20… The account was created in February 2016 and went dark about three weeks after the attack began, just before the presidential election. The account offered to reward whoever can find dirt on the people working with PutinTrump.org; in another tweet it declared, We will uncover them ALL!” 

New details reveal Donald Trump Jr is even more of a Russian puppet than his father

Earlier this week it was revealed that Donald Trump Jr spent the general election coordinating with Russian puppet cyberterrorist outfit WikiLeaks. It may be the most damning revelation in the Trump-Russia scandal to date, as it reveals that Junior’s in-person meeting with Kremlin representatives was just the start of the collaboration, not the end. New evidence today reveals that WikiLeaks and Trump Jr did indeed coordinate their strategic efforts during the election.

Donald Trump Jr and WikiLeaks conspired to try to sabotage an anti-Trump website called PutinTrump.org. during the election. The coordination went as far as WikiLeaks asking Junior what he knew about the site, and giving him the password to the site, according to a new Mother Jones report (link). This took place in September of 2016, which was months after Trump Jr’s only known in-person meeting with Kremlin representatives.

Based on the timeframe that’s been established this week for the communications between WikiLeaks and Trump Jr, it’s highly unlikely that their coordinated attack on PutinTrump.org was the only incident of its kind. Now that investigators and journalists know what they’re looking for, it could be fairly easy to continue fleshing out the full timeline.

It’s worth keeping in mind that this is merely what the media has publicly uncovered to date. We still don’t know what other information or evidence Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team may have privately uncovered when it comes to Donald Trump Jr’s communications and coordination with Russia, aimed at altering the outcome of the election.

The post New details reveal Donald Trump Jr is even more of a Russian puppet than his father appeared first on Palmer Report.

WikiLeaks Set Off an Attack on Our Trump-Russia ProjectRight After Messaging Donald Trump Jr. About It

Additional reporting for this story was contributed by Denise Clifton and AJ Vicens.On Monday, The Atlantic published private messages from September 2016 in which WikiLeaks gave Donald Trump Jr. the password to a forthcoming site documenting his father’s ties to Russia. But there was more to the story of WikiLeaks’ apparent effort to conspire with the Trump campaign against PutinTrump.organd I had a front-row seat to it, as editorial director of the site. Within just minutes of reaching out to Trump Jr., WikiLeaks also publicized the password, setting off a wave of online harassment, email bombs, and personal threats against people behind the site.Here’s the deeper story.On the evening of September 20, 2016, WikiLeaks sent a direct message on Twitter to Trump Jr.: “A PAC run anti-Trump site putintrump.org is about to launch. The PAC is a recycled pro-Iraq war PAC. We have guessed the password. It is putintrump. See About for who is behind it. Any comments?Off the record I dont know who that is, but Ill ask around, Trump Jr. responded about 12 hours later. Thanks.

Trump Jr. soon emailed top officials in the Trump campaign about the exchange, according to The Atlantic, including Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, digital director Brad Parscale, and Trumps son-in-law, Jared Kushner; Kushner forwarded the email to campaign communications staffer Hope Hicks.

Almost immediately after WikiLeaks messaged Trump Jr., though, it made another move: It tweeted out the password. (The password did not allow anyone access to the back end of the site; it was intended simply to let the press preview the site as it would look the following day, when it went live.)

Let’s bomb Iraq Progress For America PAC to launch ‘http://PutinTrump.org ‘ at 9.30am, WikiLeaks tweeted. Oops pw is ‘putintrump’ http://putintrump.org/ 

Our site was soon hit with a surge of traffic and spam while it was still password-protected and meant to be out of public viewand that was just the beginning. Within hours, people involved with launching the site were doxxed and personally targeted on Twitter, an attack that quickly spread to Reddit and to alt-right and pro-Trump news sites. Mother Jones is withholding some details about the attack at the request of the people who were targeted due to their concerns about further harassment: Their cellphone numbers, home addresses, and other information about them and their family members were publicized, alongside calls to go after them. Their email accounts were hit with a spambot attack, signing them up for thousands of unwanted subscriptionsmany in a foreign languagewhich rendered the accounts unusable. In a panic, one of them sent me a message: “We are getting 100,000 spam messages to our inbox and all of our personal info is on twitter.” They also received menacing emails and crank phone calls.

“It was the scariest times in our lives,” recalls one of the people targeted.  “There were messages threatening our families.”

It is unclear who was behind the Twitter account that appeared to lead the targeting of PutinTrump.org on September 20. (We are also withholding the account’s handle because of sensitive information still posted there as of this storys publication.) The account was created in February 2016 and went dark about three weeks after the attack began, just before the presidential election. The account offered to reward whoever can find dirt on the people working with PutinTrump.org; in another tweet it declared, We will uncover them ALL!

The lead attacker’s eight-month-long timeline was filled primarily with anti-Hillary Clinton vitriol and conspiracy theories. It also purported to back Bernie Sandersand, on numerous occasions, it highlighted the John Podesta emails stolen by Russian hackers and retweeted pro-Trump content from WikiLeaks.

We found no evidence that our site was hacked. The password shared without authorization by WikiLeaks had been created for an embargoed press release sent on September 19 to journalists at roughly a dozen major news organizations who agreed to keep the information about the project private until after the following morning’s launch. It is unclear how WikiLeaks learned about the existence of our site prior to the launchwe had not yet publicized it to anyone other than the group of journalists.

The private exchange between WikiLeaks and Trump Jr. came just seven weeks before the presidential election, and two months after WikiLeaks began releasing Democratic National Committee emails stolen by Russian hackers. By then it was widely known that WikiLeaks had been a vehicle for Russian hackers, as publicly confirmed by US intelligence leaders.

Digital evidence examined by Mother Jones indicates with near certainty that WikiLeaks communicated with Trump Jr. about the launch of PutinTrump.org just eight minutes before posting the password for its millions of followers.

WikiLeaks and a representative for Donald Trump Jr. did not respond to questions from Mother Jones for this story.

WikiLeaks also was wrong about the PAC funding our project. Created by technology entrepreneur Rob Glaser, the PAC was initially titled Progress for America. There was no connection to a much older pro-Iraq War PAC of the same name, as WikiLeaks perhaps believed. That older group had not been registered with the Federal Election Commission; after realizing the overlap, Glaser immediately changed the PAC’s name to “Progress for USA,” on the day PutinTrump.org was launched.

After the election, we preserved PutinTrump.org as a content archive. In March, journalist Denise Clifton and I began working with Mother Jones on a new project contributing to Mother Jones broader reporting on the sprawling Trump-Russia investigation. (Disclosure: Mother Jones receives some funding from Glasers foundation.)

“We launched PutinTrump.org because I and others inferred that there were a set of unseemly and perhaps illegal links between then candidate Trump and Russias efforts to hack our democracy. Its clear that our inferences were well founded, Glaser says. Even so, we had no idea that our website would actually stimulate new links connecting the Trump campaign, Russian hackers, and their publisher, WikiLeaks.

Palmer Report: Finally home from his overseas trip, Donald Trump sounds like hes high on drugs and dying

Donald Trump just returned from a nearly two week overseas tour, with his Trump-Russia scandal consuming his existence, and his presidency in tatters. He then made the mistake of speaking publicly before the cameras today, in an event which was carried live on national television. It went so poorly, suffice it to say that he’d better hope it was because he was high on drugs because the alternative explanation would be even worse.We’re not accusing Donald Trump of having been high on cocaine during his speech today we have no way of definitively confirming that but his physical and mental condition was so awful, he at least sounded and acted as if he was high. He was uncontrollably sniffing, which we’ve seen before. At times he sounded out of breath, as if he were about to pass out. He took a swig of water in such desperate fashion that even Marco Rubio felt safe mocking him for it.But what we’re now witnessing may be too disconcerting to be mock-worthy. The person occupying the office of President of the United States is in such bad shape that he sounds as if he’s high on drugs, or dying of ill health, or both. We’ve seen numerous U.S. Presidents all go through periods where they sound and look better or worse off. We’ve seen Presidents take overseas trips and come home worse for wear. However, it’s difficult to recall any President in the television camera era sounding and acting like this.Something is clearly wrong here. Donald Trump appears to be in need of immediate professional medical help. It doesn’t take a doctor to see that he’s in rapid decline by the day. As the Trump-Russia scandal continues to get exponentially worse for him and his presidency and his family, is the pressure literally killing Trump?The post Finally home from his overseas trip, Donald Trump sounds like he’s high on drugs and dyingappeared first on Palmer Report. Palmer Report
