WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump's oldest son has released a series of direct messages he received from the Twitter account behind the WikiLeaks website, including his responses to the communications.
Donald Trump Jr.'s release of the messages on Twitter comes after The Atlantic first reported them.
In the exchanges, WikiLeaks asks Trump Jr. to push its leaks and to release his father's tax returns to the site.
The documents released by Trump Jr. show him responding three times, at one point agreeing to "ask around" about a political action committee that WikiLeaks had mentioned. He also asked the site about a rumor about an upcoming leak.
The messages released by Trump Jr. began in September 2016 and run through July.
WikiLeaks released stolen e-mail messages from top Democrats during the campaign.
