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.

As impeachment testimony was underway in the House, Trump told reporters in a Cabinet meeting that Pelosi is "grossly incompetent."

The president also said that Republicans are "killing it" in the impeachment hearings.

But Trump took a shot at Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an expert on Ukraine who was testifying at the time.

"I don't know him. ... I never saw the man," he said. "I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in. No, I don't know Vindman at all. What I do know is that even he said that the transcript was correct."

"Let’s Stop Pretending Every Impeachment Witness Is A Selfless Hero," Trump Jr. tweeted, quoting the piece's headline.
