Even worse than that.. they are now complaining that Trump DIDNT work with Wikileaks to leak his own tax returns, and even if he did, it STILL wouldnt have been illegal. individuals can leak their own tax returns if they want..

“Hey Don. We have an unusual idea,” WikiLeaks wrote on October 21, 2016. “Leak us one or more of your father’s tax returns.” WikiLeaks then laid out three reasons why this would benefit both the Trumps and WikiLeaks. One, The New York Times had already published a fragment of Trump’s tax returns on October 1; two, the rest could come out any time “through the most biased source (e.g. NYT/MSNBC).”

How does this create "conspiracy against the US"?
Funny you left off the third reason suggested by Wikileaks. According to Wikileaks, if bolsters the idea that they are impartial when they were actually Pro Trump.

It is the third reason, though, WikiLeaks wrote, that “is the real kicker.” “If we publish them it will dramatically improve the perception of our impartiality,” WikiLeaks explained. “That means that the vast amount of stuff that we are publishing on Clinton will have much higher impact, because it won’t be perceived as coming from a ‘pro-Trump’ ‘pro-Russia’ source.” It then provided an email address and link where the Trump campaign could send the tax returns, and adds, “The same for any other negative stuff (documents, recordings) that you think has a decent chance of coming out. Let us put it out.”

Didn't say he was, but if any of them hold clearances now, if they were one of the "little guys" they would be in deep ****. Which is basically the same problem I had with Hillary, in that she got away with something I know I would have at the very least been fired for.

They would not be in any trouble for simply forwarding on an email that was received.

Working with a company with stolen DNC emails that the Trump campaign knew were hacked by Russia?

Not that almost all other Americans would have contacted the FBI when they were first contacted by agents of Russia or an organization that was peddling stolen information. Stupidity just as ignorance of the law is no excuse.


But yeah, nothing to see here, right?

This has NOTHING to do with DNC, emails, nor Russia.

Because obviously the Trump campaign used the information provided by Wikileaks. Stolen information. You know what stolen means, right?

Yeah, it does since the Podesta emails are explicitly mentioned in the article, and Russia is the one who hacked them and gave them to Wikileaks.
