Special counsel Robert Mueller is currently probing WikiLeaks' contacts with prominent conservative activists and pundits, the Wall Street Journal reported.


According to the report, Mueller has in recent days questioned witnesses about Trump confidante Roger Stone's contacts with the website — and has acquired his phone records.

The special counsel's investigators also have evidence that GOP activist Peter W. Smith, who died in May 2017 under mysterious circumstances, "may have had advance knowledge of details about the release of emails from a top Hillary Clinton campaign official by WikiLeaks."

Jerome Corsi, a right-wing pundit, was also questioned by Mueller's team over his interactions with Stone and WikiLeaks, a source close to the matter told the Journal.

Former Trump campaign staffer Sam Nunberg and New York radio host Randy Credico previously said they'd been contacted by the special counsel's investigators about Stone and WikiLeaks.
