Wikileaks founder Julian Assange tried to offer “news” about Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, to Fox News commentator Sean Hannity but actually messaged a woman posing as the cable news host.
The Daily Beast reported Monday Assange direct messaged @SeanHannity_ early Saturday morning after the real Hannity’s account was deleted due to a technical snafu by the social media company. However, the @SeanHannity_ account was run by a Texas woman — Hannity’s real account is @SeanHannity.
Assange told the fake Hannity, “You can send me messages on other channels. Have some news about Warner.”
Warner is the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
