WikiLeaks 'probably knew' that it helps Russians
Whistleblower website WikiLeaks played a key role in the Russian attempt to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election in favor of the later winner, Republican Donald Trump. This conclusion is reached by a Senate committee, one of the two chambers of the American Parliament.

WikiLeaks 'probably knew' it was helping the Russian intelligence services, according to the Senate committee. The commission's report also assumes that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was working with Russians and Ukrainians before, during and after the 2016 elections.

The commission noted that the role of Manafort and its proximity to Trump created opportunities for Russian espionage. According to the report, Manafort's access to the highest level and his willingness to share information with persons closely associated with the Russian intelligence services posed a serious threat.

The committee spent three and a half years investigating allegations that Russia was trying to help Trump defeat the Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. Findings have come out before.
