Paul Manafort held secret talks with Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in 2013, 2015, & MAR 2016 – during the time he joined Trump’s campaign, months before emails hacked by Russia were published by WikiLeaks.

•➤ MAR 2016: Manafort secretly meets with Assange; Russian GRU officers begin the email hack.
•➤ JUN 2016: WikiLeaks emails the GRU via an intermediary seeking the DNC material.
•➤ JUL 2016: Putin’s spies sent the documents to WikiLeaks as an encrypted attachment.
Recall, last week a court filing released in error suggested that the US Justice Department had secretly charged Julian Assange with a criminal offense.

FYI: Adam Waldman, US lobbyist for Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska [who was offered private campaign briefings by his ex-business partner PAUL MANAFORT], visited Assange 9 times in 2017, including twice before Trump's inaugural & once right after.
Manafort’s acquaintance with Assange goes back to at least 2013, when Manafort was advising Ukraine's Putin-friendly president, Yanukovych, and running secret media "black ops" against Yanukovych’s political rival, Tymoshenko, whom they had jailed.
