The web of Russiagate is becoming even more tangled. The journal The Atlantic managed to add several more elements that make it even more difficult to understand the true extent of the meddling by Putin’s Russia into American political life.
The magazine published a long article that reconstructs the exchange of messages between WikiLeaks and Donald Trump’s eldest son in the summer of 2016, at the height of the presidential campaign that saw the real estate magnate run for the White House against Hillary Clinton. And in recent days there have been calls for the appointment of a special prosecutor to shed light on the sale of a uranium mining enterprise that involved Clinton during her time as Secretary of State in 2010.
It is not clear whether this web will ever be unraveled completely. But it is certain that Russiagate is undermining the legitimacy of the White House. And furthermore, the news just published by The Atlantic might also destroy the credibility of Julian Assange and his organization.
