WSJ: Roger Stone Sought Emails from Assange, Lied to Congress

Not surprisingly, it would appear based on emails obtained by WSJ, that Roger Stone used an intermediary in an attempt to relay a request to Julian Assange for any emails that WikiLeaks might have pertaining to the possibility that Clinton disrupted a Libyan peace proposal in 2011 — and then lied about it in sworn testimony to Congress.

Roger Stone Sought Information on Clinton from Assange, Emails Show


Former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone privately sought information he considered damaging to Hillary Clinton from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to emails reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

The emails could raise new questions about Mr. Stone’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee in September, in which he said he “merely wanted confirmation” from an acquaintance that Mr. Assange had information about Mrs. Clinton, according to a portion of the transcript that was made public.

In a Sept. 18, 2016, message, Mr. Stone urged an acquaintance who knew Mr. Assange to ask the WikiLeaks founder for emails related to Mrs. Clinton’s alleged role in disrupting a purported Libyan peace deal in 2011 when she was secretary of state, referring to her by her initials.

“Please ask Assange for any State or HRC e-mail from August 10 to August 30--particularly on August 20, 2011,” Mr. Stone wrote to Randy Credico, a New York radio personality who had interviewed Mr. Assange several weeks earlier. Mr. Stone, a longtime confidant of Mr. Trump, had no formal role in his campaign at the time.


Credico tried to blow him off by directing him to the WikiLeaks site but apparently Stone felt that Assange might be holding back some emails or had emails yet to release.


Mr. Credico initially responded to Mr. Stone that what he was requesting would be on WikiLeaks’ website if it existed, according to an email reviewed by the Journal. Mr. Stone, the emails show, replied: “Why do we assume WikiLeaks has released everything they have ???”

In another email, Mr. Credico then asked Mr. Stone to give him a “little bit of time,” saying he thought Mr. Assange might appear on his radio show the next day. A few hours later, Mr. Credico wrote: “That batch probably coming out in the next drop...I can’t ask them favors every other day .I asked one of his lawyers...they have major legal headaches riggt now..relax.”


According to Credico, he never actually relayed the message and there's no evidence that any emails matching the request were passed back or even existed to be passed.

Somebody from the DEEP STATE probably encouraged him to ask after the emails as part of an unbelievably elaborate entrapment plan. Though I still can't figure out what they did to get him to perjure himself.



According to comments from Adam Schiff, the emails obtained by WSJ were not provided to the HPSCI.

This is far from the least interesting thing involving Stone from this election. Far more interesting is that he was in direct communication with "Guccifer 2.0" and that after "Guccifer 2.0" shared 2.5 gigabytes of voter data (which seems to have been taken during the DCCC hack) stolen from the Democrats with GOP operative Aaron Nevins, he also shared the same with Roger Stone who claimed not to have passed anything along to the Trump campaign. That stolen data included strategy documents, voter turn-out analyses and get-out-the vote plans for swing states.

WSJ also broke that story which I discussed in a thread here.

At the time, at least one GOP operative, Anthony Bustamante, stated that he'd used the stolen data for targeting ad buys during the campaign for Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL 18th District). Later, the campaign countered that Bustamante was no longer with the campaign by the time that the data was posted to Nevin's blog. That story seems to have petered out from there.

Of course he lied. And Mueller already knows it.

"Opposition research" is a term that has been floated around back when you know who got busted for funding a fake dossier.

Carry on.

Roger Stone seems to be part of the same group Halper is . A lower level Jesuit imo

This is old news. Stone said last week that he fully expects to be indicted by Mueller. He'll go into the waiting line behind the other 19 little fish that Mueller is keeping in a holding pattern.

Another bombshell rocking the Trump admin. Somebody that wasn't part of his campaign did something nobody cares about. This is YUUUUUUGE, believe me. Bad hombres.

Blue wave... repeal tax cuts... ban assault weapons... Dems are going to win bigly.

Another quality post by our esteemed member, pure class, intelligence and wit there adding to the conversation.
Bravo!



So reading the OP link, the person identified wasn't even working for the Trump Campaign.
He didn't receive anything from Assange, infact the request never even got to Assange
Once again its based on ''emails that we have seen'' that haven't been provided - thus its just more anonymous sources
WSJ has been proven already to write articles that arent true, misrepresent and misquote.

But continue Ante - just another anti-trump diatribe to add to your growing list

As for the poster above.... I totally agree

I dont give a damn how proof of corruption is exposed. Hitler, Stalin, Kim Jong, Saddam... i dont care if all of them wrap it in a nice envelope and hand it the news papers... If it exposes government officials lying, selling out their country, committing treason... im all for it!

Let the chips fall where they may!

Hillary's crew was doing the same thing with Trump, trying to get as much dirt on him as they could. That is not illegal, Assange is not a Russian anyway. The people in the Hillary campaign also lied about a lot of stuff and had people in the FBI working with them. By the way, I do not know if that is even really illegal. We need to fix the political system so we have good people in government instead of deceivers, I know people want to get those high pressure deceivers out of their communities so they send them to either the state or US capitol so they do not have to put up with them. At least they are out of the community and their egos and deceptive skills just might help the community that sent them there.

Is there any Republican who isn't a liar?

Well maybe Ron Paul, but that's about it.

Yes this is old news, I recall reading about this several months ago... Stone tried to get dirt on Hillary from Wikileaks but got nothing. Even if he did get something I'd view it as a good thing not a bad thing, anyone who can expose her crimes is a hero in my book. I would say the same thing had Wikileaks given dirt on Trump to someone trying to help the DNC, if there was a crime Trump committed then people deserve to know, which is a statement the left clearly agrees with. Yet when it comes to Hillary it seems she's above reproach, in fact any attempt to do opposition research or get dirt on her is seen as a conspiracy or some form of collusion because we all know Assange is a Russian mole. Lmao.

Stone was just conducting a test to see if they were spying on him.

Looks like they were.

He knew it was for his own protection as well as theirs.

😎🤷

Stone was probably a plant by deep state, and he knew deep state didn't know that he knew. He went along with their covert grooming and stepped through the doors they opened for him. He wouldn't have been one of them but a patsy they thought they could use to ensure Hillary won by pinning dirt on Trump.

He had motive to attract deep state.
He is a fanatical Nixon guy, see his back tattoo.
Hillary is a fanatical take Nixon down gal, so fanatical she got fired as it went down.
Therefore Stone wants in on anything having to do with taking down Hillary, a perfect mark for deep state.
So as they think he thinks he is taking down Hillary, he is really informing Trump they will try to feed him Hillary dirt to later pin on Trump.

Stone wins in the end because Trump wins and deep state gets exposed along with Hillary. Now Stone may have had allies in a deeper deep state that was really setting up a coup on the Obama deep state.

This rabbit hole stuff is fun, it can explain anything.

No, this isn't old news. These emails were literally just revealed. You're referring to Twitter exchanges Stone had.
