According to a new report from the Washington Post, President Donald Trump confidante Roger Stone held a secret meeting with a Russian national who offered “dirt” on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton prior to the 2016 presidential election.
The report states that the man, who identified himself as Henry Greenberg, first approached Trump aide Michael Caputo who then referred him to Stone.
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.
