Wiki Leaks offered up $1 Million dollars to The Guardian stating that their story was false.

The Guardian reported this earlier today

Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort held secret talks with Julian Assange inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and visited around the time he joined Trump’s campaign, the Guardian has been told.

Sources have said Manafort went to see Assange in 2013, 2015 and in spring 2016 – during the period when he was made a key figure in Trump’s push for the White House.

It is unclear why Manafort would have wanted to see Assange and what was discussed. But the last apparent meeting is likely to come under scrutiny and could interest Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor who is investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

A well-placed source has told the Guardian that Manafort went to see Assange around March 2016. Months later WikiLeaks released a stash of Democratic emails stolen by Russian intelligence officers.

Here is the full story from The Guardian

Although the leftist media will likely not cover this aspect of the story but WikiLeaks doesn’t seem to have a reason to cover this up. If Manafort met with Assange that would hurt Manafort but likely not Assange.

The obvious next argument is that this meeting doesn’t equal collusion. Is it bad optics? Maybe. However, this doesn’t prove that the Trump campaign helped with the hacking of the DNC’s emails.

Assange has long claimed that he didn’t get the emails from Russia.
