Speaking with the Post, Stone admitted that Greenberg claimed to possess scandalous information on Clinton and wanted Trump to pay him $2 million for the info.

Stone claims he told the man, while sitting in a Florida restaurant, “You don’t understand Donald Trump. He doesn’t pay for anything.”

Following the meeting, Caputo contacted Stone to see how it went, texting, ““How crazy is the Russian?” with Stone replying he wanted “big” money, and that he was a “waste of time.”

According to both Stone and Caputo, they had forgotten about the meeting until confronted by the Post.
