Longtime Donald Trump political advisor Roger Stone visited the Ecuadorian Embassy in London on Wednesday, where Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has received diplomatic immunity for the last five years, The Daily Beast reports.

Stone testified before the House Intelligence Committee in September, and in October named his backchannels conduit to Wikileaks.

Stone added, “I don’t even think he’s there anymore.”
