Watch: Reporter perfectly explains Roger Stone’s weird dealings with Julian Assange and a radio DJ

Published

on

Roger’s Stone’s dealings with Julian Assange and a failed stand-up comedian who interviewed the Wikileaks founder is a lot to process.

The notoriously shady Stone pretty much lies about everything, which makes untangling his dealings a mess.

But the Wall Street Journal‘s Shelby Holliday has spent some time looking into Stone and Randy Credico, the DJ for WBAI, and laid out their ties to Assange in a brilliant MSNBC segment that pretty much explains the whole thing.

“There are a lot of layers here,” she says, before getting into the complex dealings.

It starts with Stone contacting Credico—who tried to brush him off before ultimately telling him what was coming.

“Roger Stone is fishing for information that is negative to Hillary Clinton and he wants to get that out into the media somehow,” she said.

Credico tells Stone that if Assange had something on Clinton, it’d be up on the site—to RTFA, essentially.

“Dad, go to the web site,” as MSNBC host Chris Hayes put it.

Credico then told Stone that the stolen Clinton emails Stone was looking for would be in “the next batch.” Which suggests that Credico knew.

“The fact that [Randy] would be knowing a batch would be dropping is really interesting,” she said. “So that really raises some eyebrows, when you talk to legal experts.”

She then gets into how the house investigation led by Devin Nunes mishandled this situation—and then into Stone’s infamous tweets predicting the email release.

Despite the growing movement for impeachment, advisors to President Donald Trump believe the bombshell reports about soliciting foreign election interference from Ukraine can be "spun as a positive" for the president's 2020 re-election campaign.

Ashley Parker, a White House reporter for The Washington Post, was interviewed about the thinking of Trump's advisors by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki on Monday.

"This is a White House, a Trump White House, that is used to being under siege. There was of course the two-and-a-half-year saga with the Mueller investigation culminating in the Mueller report, Mueller’s testimony recently. There have been a million other controversies, flare-ups, moments when the White House was forced to defend a comment from the president, allegation against the president, these sorts of things," Kornacki noted.
