WikiLeaks tweets out reminder that Trump once professed his ‘love’ for them

WikiLeaks shared a clip of President Trump saying “I love WikiLeaks!” on the group’s official Twitter page on Friday.

The clip is from a Trump campaign rally in October 2016. The president’s comments came just after a WikiLeaks document dump that included thousands of emails stolen from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta.

The tweet read: “Donald Trump, October 10, 2016: “‘This just came out. WikiLeaks! I love WikiLeaks!'”

The tweet comes on the same day it was reported that the Trump administration is considering filing charges against members of WikiLeaks, including founder Julian Assange.

Federal investigators said a memo is in the draft stage and they will be looking back as far 2010, when WikiLeaks posted thousands of U.S. Army intel officer Bradley Manning’s stolen files.

The Justice Department also believes it has proof that WikiLeaks played a part in the infamous leak from National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.
