Secrets' publisher Wikileaks says it has the perfect fit for the head of a proposed U.S.-Russian unit on cybersecurity – its founder, Julian Assange.

The suggestion comes hours after President Donald Trump tweeted that he'd talked with Russia's leader Vladimir Putin last Friday about creating an "impenetrable cyber security unit."

The organization also linked to a press release from March, in which it detailed a number of leaks linked to the CIA.

The response was a rare thumbs-up to an idea that was roundly criticized by both Democrats and Republicans.

Trump has blown hot and cold about Wikileaks.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo blasted Assange last April, calling him a "fraud," CNN and CNN at the time reported the United States was preparing charges against Assange, who lives at the Ecuadorian embassy in London in order to avoid extradition to the United States.
