Trump earlier today said he knows "nothing" about WikiLeaks. And just moments ago, Trump said: "I don't know much about it" when asked about WikiLeaks.— Manu Raju (@mkraju) April 11, 2019

I have a few thoughts that I might work into a longer piece but the immediately remarkable thing to me post-Assange arrest is how Trump's public comments went from "I love WikiLeaks" to "I don't know much about it". Sure, it's about whatever his current use for Assange is (he had a use for him, then he didn't--nota bene, Trump allies, there's a pattern). But the way he does it is just stark.
He doesn't know much about it. Maybe he could ask his son what he knows about it. Maybe he knew at one time something about it, but hasn't thought about WikiLeaks for a minute.
Who knows? It is a mystery, huh?
