Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.

Early in the day on October 7, the Obama administration officially accuses the Russian government of stealing and distributing emails from the Democratic National Committee and party leaders.

The Obama administration on Friday formally accused the Russian government of stealing and disclosing emails from the Democratic National Committee and a range of other institutions and prominent individuals, immediately raising the issue of whether President Obama would seek sanctions or other retaliation.

In a statement from the director of national intelligence, James R. Clapper Jr., and the Department of Homeland Security, the government said the leaked emails that have appeared on a variety of websites “are intended to interfere with the U.S. election process.”

Then something unbelievable happens. The Access Hollywood tape of Donald Trump and Billy Bush leaks. And an hour later, WikiLeaks drops a new batch of emails related to the Clinton campaign.

Four years later, everyone remembers the Access Hollywood tape. Very few people remember the Russia announcement.
