Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly looking into whether former informal Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone attempted to intimidate a man whom Stone has claimed served as a back channel to WikiLeaks.
The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that prosecutors on Mueller’s team have been questioning witnesses about Stone’s interactions with and comments about former New York radio host Randy Credico.
Stone has claimed that Credico, a former friend of his, was a conduit between him and WikiLeaks. Credico has repeatedly and publicly denied the allegations.
According to the Journal, Stone told Credico in emails that he would “sue the f---" out of him and he should “prepare to die c---sucker.”
Stone shared his responses to the Journal with The Hill, in which he stated that he sent the emails to Credico "to get him to tell the truth."
Stone’s attorney Grant Smith told The Hill in an email that Stone didn’t “do anything other than implore Mr. Credico to tell the truth.”
Stone's story is that Credico was his back-channel to wiki-leaks. Credico tells investigators that's not true, and that he's been threatened by Stone.
I'm glad the mid-terms are over and we can see progress on the Mueller investigation once again. The full article goes into a bit more detail, basically Credico and others are on the opposite side of Stone on this, which looks an awful lot like he's trying to get them to get a story-straight and lie to investigators, rather than just come clean.
In this case, what do you think about Trump's campaign advisor Roger Stone's credibility? Based on his history, I think he has none whatsoever. His buddy/co-founder on the left, he got 8 years and plead on the rest...what's gonna happen to Stone?
