Just Found Text Messages Pose A Major Problem For Mueller Probe Witness

  • Roger Stone released bombshell text messages on Wednesday that appear to support his claims that Randy Credico was his source for statements he made during the 2016 campaign about WikiLeaks.
  • The messages severely undercut Credico’s denials that he was a source or back channel for Stone, a Trump confidant.
  • Credico has said in numerous interviews over the past year that he was not Stone’s link to WikiLeaks.

The New York radio host linked to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has repeatedly denied over the past year that he was a back channel to Roger Stone in direct contradiction to text messages revealed on Wednesday.

Randy Credico has said in numerous interviews that he was not a source for Stone, a longtime political operative, about WikiLeaks’ plans to release emails damaging to the Clinton campaign. Credico has also said that he made those denials during an appearance before Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury on Sept. 7.

“I have no idea some of the things I may have said to him, but certainly did not pass any information from [WikiLeaks founder] Julian Assange to Roger Stone,” Credico said in a March 21 interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber.

Credico’s denials have seemingly put Stone in legal jeopardy because of the longtime Trump confidant’s public claims and congressional testimony that Credico confirmed to him before the 2016 election that WikiLeaks would be releasing information damaging to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Stone has maintained for over a year that he had an intermediary — Credico — who told him to expect a WikiLeaks release that would “roil” the campaign.

Stone said that he never had contact with Assange and did not know the content or source of the information.

WikiLeaks began releasing emails stolen from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta on Oct. 7, 2016.

Text messages that Stone released on Wednesday severely undercut Credico’s denials and raise questions about whether he faces any legal jeopardy of his own.

“Julian Assange has kryptonite on Hillary Clinton,” Credico wrote to Stone on Aug. 27, 2016.

The messages, which Stone’s legal team obtained through forensic work on an old cell phone, also show that Credico asked Stone not to reveal him as his source for the information.

“Just remember do not name me as your connection to Assange you had one before that you referred to,” Credico said on Sept. 18, 2016.

And on Sept. 29, 2016, he wrote: “You are not going to drag my name into this are you.”

Credico, a radio host and comedian Stone has known for 16 years, also said that his grand jury testimony was consistent with his public denials.

“I definitely was not a back channel to Julian Assange, if there was even a back channel to Julian Assange,” he said on CNN after his testimony.

“And you said that under oath today?” CNN’s Kate Bolduan asked.

“Yes,” said Credico.

When asked why Stone would claim that Credico was his link to Wikileaks, Credico deflected.

“You know, you’re going to have to ask him that. I’m sure he will be out in full force with a lot of his friends … some of these alt-right guys will be coming out attacking me for throwing cold water all over this Stone narrative,” he said.

Credico also expressed confidence that he was not in legal jeopardy and that Mueller’s team did not believe that he was Stone’s back channel.

“I doubt that they thought that I was,” he said, adding, “I think I’ll be fine. I didn’t do anything wrong.”

“I gave honest answers,” Credico said. “I was not in a position to perjure myself today … I was not going to subject myself to perjury.”

Credico’s attorney, Martin Stolar, said his client is standing by his public statements about Stone.

“We stand on prior public statements and decline, as always, to discuss specific Grand Jury testimony,” he told TheDCNF.

Stolar declined to comment on the authenticity of the text messages.

When asked if Credico doubts the authenticity of the text messages, Stolar responded: “No comment.”

“We don’t trust the source or the misleading context but nothing changes Mr. Credico’s position,” he said.

While Credico appeared before the Mueller grand jury after being subpoenaed, he has pleaded the Fifth in order to avoid testifying to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

On Feb. 19, Credico denied Stone’s claim by saying that it was unthinkable that Assange would share information with him about WikiLeaks’ plans.

“It’s not even reasonable to assume that Assange somehow would give material to me to give to Roger Stone,” Credico told The Daily Beast. “What purpose? The guy operates in secrecy, that’s his whole deal.”

“He’s certainly not going to tip off someone like me, who is a noted big mouth,” he added. “I have loose lips and I sink ships, that’s my reputation. I can’t keep a secret.”

But Credico’s text messages suggest that he obtained some information about WikiLeaks’ efforts from Margaret Ratner Kunstler, a lawyer who works for WikiLeaks. Credico referred to Kunstler as one of his “best friends.

Stone has long insisted that Kunstler, rather than Assange, was Credico’s source of information about Wikileaks’ plans.

In a March 21 interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber, Credico said he “certainly did not” pass information from Assange to Stone.

“Do you ever carry messages from Julian Assange about what he might plan to do or the nature of his work to other people anywhere else in the world?” Melber asked.

“No. Absolutely not. I totally deny,” said Credico. “I have no idea some of the things I may have said to him, but certainly did not pass any information from Julian Assange to Roger Stone.”

Credico left open the possibility that he confirmed information for Stone, but said he would have done so only after WikiLeaks released information.

“Maybe I confirmed it after it came out. If he asked me, is that true, what already came out, is it true, I would say to him, check WikiLeaks’ Web site,” he said. “I never did confirm something like that. I never said hey, Roger, this is coming out in a few days.”

But the Credico-Stone exchanges show that Credico did give Stone a heads up days before WikiLeaks planned to release Clinton documents.

“[B]ig news Wednesday,” Credico wrote on Oct. 1, 2016, days before WikiLeaks began releasing emails stolen from Podesta. “Now pretend u don’t know me.”

“Hillary’s campaign will die this week,” he added.

Credico also appeared to know details of a press conference that Assange planned to give in early October 2016.

“There will be an announcement but not on the balcony,” wrote Credico, an apparent reference to the balcony at the Ecuadoran embassy in London where Assange lives under asylum.

Credico also denied claims Stone made on his personal website on March 9.

“From the end of July through August until the end of September, Credico insisted Assange was about to publish this material on the Democrats which Randy described as devastating to Hillary,” wrote Stone.

MSNBC’s Melber quoted Stone’s claims and asked: “Is that true or false?”

“False,” said Credico.

Credico also denied Stone’s claims during a June 25 interview with YouTube host Jimmy Dore.

“You did not relay any information between Julian Assange and Roger Stone, that part is not true, correct?” Dore asked.

“Absolutely. I did not,” said Credico.

It is unclear if Credico faces any legal jeopardy from his inconsistent statements. Mueller’s grand jury has  recently heard testimony from two witnesses who backed up Stone’s claims about Credico.

A Stone attorney, Tyler Nixon, testified on Nov. 2 that he was at a dinner in mid-November 2017 where Credico acknowledged being Stone’s back channel. Nixon told TheDCNF that Credico expressed concern that being identified as Stone’s source would upset his left-leaning friends.

A filmmaker who has worked with Stone and Credico, David Lugo, testified on Oct. 19 that Credico told him on May 12, 2017, that he was a source for Stone.

 

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

Do YOU think we have the best President and First Lady ever? Follow Amanda Shea on Twitter to get RIGHT daily insight!

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
