House intel committee subpoenas Roger Stone’s WikiLeaks intermediary

Published

on

Roger Stone has identified the intermediary between himself and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during the 2016 presidential election as radio host Randy Credico, CNN reports.

Stone referenced Credico in his September statement to reporters after meeting with the House Intelligence Committee. Throughout the campaign, Stone appeared to have advance knowledge of some of WikiLeaks’ releases, specifically those which were damaging to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Stone denied any such connection to WikiLeaks.

“On June 12, 2016, WikiLeaks’ publisher Julian Assange, announced that he was in possession of Clinton DNC emails. I learned this by reading it on Twitter,” Stone wrote in an opening statement, as CNN reports.

“I asked a journalist who I knew had interviewed Assange to independently confirm this report, and he subsequently did,” Stone continued. “This journalist assured me that WikiLeaks would release this information in October and continued to assure me of this throughout the balance of August and all of September. This information proved to be correct.”

Stone had originally declined to name Credico, insisting he would not divulge his sources and that his conversations with the journalist were “off-the-record.”

“I’m not going to burn somebody I spoke to off-the-record,” Stone said when reporters asked for Credico’s name. “If he releases me, if he allows me to release it, I would be happy to give it to the committee. I’m actually going to try to do that.”

Credico received a subpoena to appear before the House Intelligence Committee on Dec. 15. Credico’s attorney, Martin Stolar, told CNN the radio host plans to comply with the subpoena.

A black PBS journalist just burst Trump’s bubble after he boasted of racial progress — and he rudely dismissed her

Published

on

At a press statement on Friday, President Donald Trump bragged that the United States would soon have “the strongest economy in the world” — only to be challenged by PBS’ Yamiche Alcindor when the journalist cited actual economic figures.

The press conference came at a time when the U.S. is being rocked by the coronavirus pandemic and high unemployment as well as large protests in response to the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25. Despite all that, Trump’s tone was strident rather than empathetic as he bragged, “What’s happened to our country, and what you now see…. is the greatest thing that can happen for race relations, for the African-American community, for the Asian-American, for the Hispanic-American community, for women, for everything. Because our economy is so strong…. We’re going to have the strongest economy in the world. We’re almost there now.”

Walking out of his house for the first time on Tuesday morning, Robert Batie found his house vandalized by racist slurs.

“I’m 74 years old, I shouldn’t have to deal with this, so how do you describe how you feel when you come out of the bedroom and you’ve kicked the virus and you’re thankful that way, and you’re trying to mow the lawn and you see this?” he said.

As construction of the perimeter fence continued on Friday, many Twitter users said it reminded them of a baby gate that new parents use to keep their infants from crawling into potentially dangerous areas.

"Aww isn’t this cute!" Twitter user @H0telr0meo wrote in one widely shared tweet. "Little #BunkerBoy now has his own #BabyGate."
