- Roger Stone released bombshell text messages on Wednesday that appear to support his claims that Randy Credico was his source for statements he made during the 2016 campaign about WikiLeaks.
- The messages severely undercut Credico’s denials that he was a source or back channel for Stone, a Trump confidant.
- Credico has said in numerous interviews over the past year that he was not Stone’s link to WikiLeaks.
The New York radio host linked to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has repeatedly denied over the past year that he was a back channel to Roger Stone in direct contradiction to text messages revealed on Wednesday.
Randy Credico has said in numerous interviews that he was not a source for Stone, a longtime political operative, about WikiLeaks’ plans to release emails damaging to the Clinton campaign. Credico has also said that he made those denials during an appearance before Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury on Sept. 7.
“I have no idea some of the things I may have said to him, but certainly did not pass any information from [WikiLeaks founder] Julian Assange to Roger Stone,” Credico said in a March 21 interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber.
Credico’s denials have seemingly put Stone in legal jeopardy because of the longtime Trump confidant’s public claims and congressional testimony that Credico confirmed to him before the 2016 election that WikiLeaks would be releasing information damaging to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Stone has maintained for over a year that he had an intermediary — Credico — who told him to expect a WikiLeaks release that would “roil” the campaign.
Stone said that he never had contact with Assange and did not know the content or source of the information.
WikiLeaks began releasing emails stolen from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta on Oct. 7, 2016.
Text messages that Stone released on Wednesday severely undercut Credico’s denials and raise questions about whether he faces any legal jeopardy of his own.
