Wikileaks vows to go after Trump over ‘breach of promise . . . more gratuitous than Clinton’ concealment

No one can make the claim anymore that WikiLeaks singled out Hillary Clinton for an attack to the exclusion of now-President Donald Trump.

During her appearance on ABC News’ “This Week,” senior Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway told host George Stephanopoulos that the president will not be releasing any of his tax returns.

“The White House response is that he’s not going to release his tax returns,” Conway said.

WikiLeaks went on the attack following her statement and encouraged anyone who may have access to the billionaire’s tax records to send them to their organization so that they can publish the information.

WikiLeaks claimed that Trump’s refusal to release his returns is tantamount to a “breach of promise” by the president.

NBC News reporter Ali Vitali suggested that WikiLeaks’ call to action represented a change of focus for the organization.

But this is a total fallacy. Although WikiLeaks appeared to zero in on the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign, it had always sought out information on Trump — including his tax information — since at least August of last year.

Following a debate when Trump’s tax records were brought up by Clinton, WikiLeaks again asked that those in possession of that “secret” information come forward.

During her “This Week” appearance Sunday, Conway suggested that little would be accomplished by releasing Trump’s IRS returns.

“We litigated this all through the election. People didn’t care,” she said. “They voted for him, and let me make this very clear: Most Americans are very focused on what their tax returns will look like while President Trump is in office, not what his look like. And you know full well that President Trump and his family are complying with all the ethical rules, everything they need to do to step away from his businesses and be a full-time president.”
