Mueller investigating claim Trump associate Roger Stone tried to intimidate a grand jury witness

Published

on

Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly probing whether Trump confidante Roger Stone intimidated a witness who contradicted his story on his contact with WikiLeaks.

The Wall Street Journal reported the turn in the investigation based on sources in contact with Mueller’s team.

The probe reportedly revolves around Stone’s relationship with New York radio host Randy Credico, the man Stone claims was his “backchannel” to WikiLeaks. Credico denied Stone’s claim.

Filmmaker David Lugo, an acquaintance to both men, told the Wall Street Journal that he testified before the special counsel’s grand jury about a “harshly critical” blog post Stone helped him write about Credico.

Progressive activist and businessman Bill Samuels, a friend of Credico’s, told the newspaper that Mueller’s team questioned him about the radio host’s “reaction to allegedly threatening messages” sent by Stone.

Another person familiar with Mueller’s investigation said his team is looking into messages between the two men about Credico invoking the Fifth Amendment before Congress.

More than 1,100 former US Department of Justice officials called on Attorney General William P. Barr on Sunday to step down after he intervened last week to lower the Justice Department’s sentencing recommendation for President Trump’s longtime friend and political crony Roger J. Stone Jr.

“It is unheard of for the Department’s top leaders to overrule line prosecutors, who are following established policies, in order to give preferential treatment to a close associate of the President, as Attorney General Barr did in the Stone case,” wrote the former Justice Department attorneys in their Sunday letter. “It is even more outrageous for the Attorney General to intervene as he did here — after the President publicly condemned the sentencing recommendation that line prosecutors had already filed in court.”
