On Thursday, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and 2020 presidential candidate slammed President Donald Trump after he lied about his knowledge of Wikileaks.


Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was arrested after being held in the Ecuadoran embassy in London for about seven years.

Trump falsely denied knowing anything about Wikileaks.

“I know nothing about Wikileaks. It’s not my thing," Trump told reports.

Swalwell said that he was acting like a lying "toddler."

"I have no sympathy for Mr. Assange with respect to what he did. But what is really frustrating is that the president of the United States, when approached about this arrest, his reaction is what you would expect from my toddler when I find that he colored on the walls," Swalwell told CNN's Brianna Keilar.

"He said 'I don't know nothing about nothing' essentially. He doesn't commend the Department of Justice for working so hard on this case. Doesn't commend the British for working with us to extradite Mr. Assange. Instead, he says something completely unbelievable that he doesn't know anything about Wikileaks when we know for a year and a half all he did was praise Wikileaks," he said.
