One of the excuses bandied about is that Wikileaks actually has the information posted on their website before they tweet it.Riddle me this. Why is RUSSIA TODAY releasing WIKILEAKS dumps 20 minutes BEFORE WIKILEAKS if they are not in bed together?? >> pic.twitter.com/hetApWD9cl— JΞSTΞR ✪ ΔCTUAL³³º¹ (@th3j35t3r) October 23, 2016
However it has also been pointed out that RT sometimes has THEIR post written even earlier and their tweets can lead a Wikileaks tweet by as much as 30 minutes.
Kind of hard not to make certain assumptions.
