Trump asked Assange to improve access to Hilary emails

The Trump campaign is now distancing itself from the data firm in light of the Assange news. "Not the subject", he wrote in a separate tweet.

He said the decision to partner with the RNC on data analytics was one of the most important decisions the campaign made after securing the 2016 nomination. He did not specifically mention the exchange between Nix and Assange.

"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing", Trump said at a campaign rally.

Michael Glassner, executive director of the Trump campaign, said in a statement: "We as a campaign made the choice to rely on the voter data of the Republican National Committee to help elect President Donald J Trump".

However WikiLeaks already had a searchable database of more than 50,000 Clinton emails when Nix emailed Assange so it is not clear what he was offering.

That sounds like it's meant to be a denial that anyone other than the Republican National Committee played a role in the campaign, but that's not exactly what it says.


Numerous emails published by WikiLeaks ahead of the election were stolen from Democratic officials by Russian spooks. Smith spoke to The Wall Street Journal in May, saying he and the colleagues he enlisted found five groups of hackers claiming to have 33,000 deleted emails from the private server Clinton used during her tenure as secretary of state. There is no evidence that WikiLeaks ever had possession of the emails. Trump also threatened to prosecute Clinton if elected president and publicly invited Russian Federation to search for the emails. Assange has denied that the source of the emails was the Russian government or any "state parties".

News of the email exchange comes amid federal investigations into whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

The editor of Wikileaks confirmed the group was approached by a data firm working for Donald Trump's presidential campaign during the 2016 election.

The Trump campaign paid Cambridge Analytica $5.9 million, according to FEC filings, though Trump allies are now claiming those forms were mislabeled.

The report was based on "two sources familiar with a congressional investigation into interactions between Trump associates and the Kremlin". The company noted that it was not under investigation and said "there is no suggestion of any wrongdoing".
