CNN corrects report about Trump campaign and Wikileaks tip

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

The new information, CNN noted, "indicates that the communication is less significant than CNN initially reported". The information was erroneously confirmed by a source, who subsequently sent the actual email to CBS News confirming the September 14 date. The network claims that the story they ran was based on two sources who saw the email - they write that the document was provided to "congressional investigators", so there's a pretty good chance that their sources were a pair of congressional staffers.

More important, the later date means that the email did not provide the Trump campaign with early access to WikiLeaks documents, after all. By rushing articles to print without fact-checking, these reporters are exacerbating a lack of trust in journalists, undermining special counsel Robert Mueller's very real investigation, and fueling unequivocal dismissals of Trump wrongdoing as "fake news".

Washington (CNN) Correction: This story has been corrected to say the date of the email was September 14, 2016, not September 4, 2016. Their names have been redacted in the above email.

The email indicated that the Trump campaign could also access records from former Secretary of State Colin Powell, whose hacked emails were publicized by a Russian group 10 days later.

Trump Jr. told investigators he had no recollection of the email, but it was described to CNN by multiple sources and its existence was verified by Trump Jr.'s attorney.

In a subsequent statement, Futerfas said that the only reason the House Intelligence Committee has this email is "because we took our responsibilities seriously and conducted searches for the broad categories of documents they requested". For example, WikiLeaks tipped off Trump Jr.to the launch of a political-action website opposing his father and provided a link, which Trump Jr. tweeted, that highlighted "many great stories the press are missing" in the hacked emails of Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. "As a result, the Committees received documents from us that were junk mail or otherwise meaningless".

This person addressed the email to Mr Trump Jr, his personal assistant, and Mr Trump - who has famously said he does not use email.

Futerfas went on to accuse committee members of planting stories about Trump Jr's interview while the interview was in progress.

"The email was never read or responded to - and the House Intelligence Committee knows this", he said. The timeline is crucial because it proves Trump Jr. was not trading unknown information, but that someone was alerting him to information already made public.
