Donald Trump Jr. had just posted a batch of private messages he exchanged with WikiLeaks during last year’s campaign, confirming reports that he communicated with the website that published stolen Democratic emails obtained by Russian military intelligence.
“More nothing burgers from the media and others desperately trying to create a false narrative,” the president’s oldest son wrote on Instagram. “Keep coming at me guys!!!”
Over the course of the week, Trump Jr. went on to tweet or retweet criticism of his father’s 2016 rival, Hillary Clinton; actor George Takei; Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and former vice president Joe Biden, sharing unsubstantiated claims about him from an anonymously sourced blog post.
