Wikileaks Suddenly Wants to Vet This 'Donald Trump’ Guy

By Eve Peyser on at

After Wikileaks spent most of the election focusing on revealing emails from Hillary Clinton and her constituents, the organisation has taken a sudden interest in the guy who now sits in the oval office. On Sunday, the Julian Assange-led organisation invited its followers to leak Trump’s tax returns to them—which Kellyanne Conway confirmed the administration would not release the documents on ABC’s “This Week.”

“Trump Counselor Kellyanne Conway stated today that Trump will not release his tax returns,” Wikileaks tweeted. “Send them to: wikileaks.org/#submit so we can.” They then pointed out that Trump breaking his promise to release his tax returns “is even more gratuitous than Clinton concealing her Goldman Sachs transcripts.”

No shit.

Assange has previously stated he totally didn’t mean to influence the election. Maybe that’s why the organisation waited to ask the public for information on this.

Did Assange really think Trump would ever release his tax returns? Or was he too busy backpedalling on his extradition promise and playing kitty-kat dress-up to muse about such weighty manners?

The real question is: Will Sarah Palin take back her apology to Assange?
