The WikiLeaks Twitter account repeatedly messaged Donald Trump Jr. with political advice, The Atlantic reported. Trump Jr. did not always respond, but The Atlantic reports he did email senior officials in the Trump campaign in September 2016 to announce that WikiLeaks had contacted him, and at one point tweeted a link WikiLeaks sent to him. Trump Jr. stopped replying to the messages in October 2016. However, weeks before the election, WikiLeaks suggested that the Trump campaign send them now-President Trump's tax returns to "improve the perception of our impartiality," and early on election day, told Trump Jr. if his father lost, he should refuse to concede the election and instead challenge the media and "other types of rigging that occurred."
