Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort held secret talks with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, including around the time the lobbyist joined Trump's bid to win the presidency, The Guardian reported Tuesday.Manafort went to the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2013, 2015 and then "around March 2016" to meet Assange, whose organization is accused of leaking thousands of emails allegedly stolen by Russian hackers from Hillary Clinton's rival campaign, the newspaper said, citing unnamed sources.The Guardian said it was unclear why Manafort visited Assange, who has been living at the embassy since he sought refuge in 2012 over a Swedish sexual assault case that was later dropped.
