Roger Stone’s Attorney Recently Testified Before Mueller Grand Jury

An attorney for Trump confidant Roger Stone appeared before Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury on Friday, the lawyer told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Tyler Nixon’s encounter with the FBI and Mueller’s team happened in just a matter of weeks, an indication he said suggests that the probe may be wrapping up. 

Nixon said he was present during a conversation that Stone had in November 2017 with Randy Credico, the comedian who Stone claims was his backchannel to Julian Assange. Credico has denied being Stone’s link to the WikiLeaks founder.

An attorney for Roger Stone testified on Friday before the grand jury being used in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, the lawyer told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

FBI agents contacted the Trump confidant’s attorney, Tyler Nixon, for the first time less than two weeks earlier, seeking an interview about his comments in an Oct. 21 Washington Post article.

Nixon was cited in that story saying that he could provide information to Mueller’s grand jury that would back up Stone’s claim that he learned about WikiLeaks’ plans to release information on the Clinton campaign through Randy Credico, a left-wing comedian and radio host.

Stone, 66, told the House Intelligence Committee that Credico was his WikiLeaks contact. Credico has touted his links to Julian Assange and has interviewed the WikiLeaks founder on his radio show, but has denied being Stone’s conduit to WikiLeaks. He told CNN that he testified the same to Mueller’s grand jury on Sept. 7.

But in addition to Nixon, another Stone associate, filmmaker David Lugo, told The Post that he had evidence showing that Credico acknowledged being Stone’s backchannel.

Credico appears to have contradicted himself at other points. A video flagged by Nixon on his YouTube channel shows Credico at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner on April 28 calling himself “the guy that was the in-between guy between Assange and Roger Stone.”

Credico’s attorney, Martin Stolar, declined to comment except to say that “Mr. Credico’s publicly available statements tend to refute these guys.”

Nixon said that two FBI agents showed up at his apartment in Denver just after the Post article appeared. The lawyer, who recently advised Stone on a defamation case, was in Las Vegas at the time and offered to meet with the agents after returning home. But the agents insisted on a prompt interview, and hopped a plane to Las Vegas on Friday, Oct. 26.

A week later, Nixon was sitting in front of Mueller’s grand jury to testify about a conversation he witnessed at a dinner at the Harlem Tavern between Stone and Credico in mid-November 2017.

On Oct. 13, 2017, a month before the dinner, Stone had informed the House Intelligence Committee that Credico was his link to WikiLeaks.

Nixon said he mostly observed the conversation between Credico and Stone, who have known each other for more than 20 years and have had a tumultuous relationship.

“It was clear from the conversation,” Nixon said, that “Stone had not invented this or thrown Credico in this as a decoy.”

Nixon said he recalled to the grand jury that Credico was upset that he would be revealed as Stone’s source, partially out of fear of upsetting his liberal friends.

“I can’t admit this. I can’t say this,” Nixon recalled Credico saying.

Credico was revealed to be Stone’s alleged source in a CNN article published two weeks after the dinner, on Nov. 30.

Nixon said Credico suggested he would invoke his Fifth Amendment rights should he be contacted by investigators. When Credico invoked the privilege to avoid appearing before the House Intelligence Committee a month later, on Dec. 13, 2017, Nixon said he was unsurprised.

Nixon, who has appeared alongside Stone on the political operative’s InfoWars show, interpreted his wham-bam encounter with federal investigators as evidence that Mueller is rapidly nearing the end of his collusion investigation, or at least the portion that deals with Stone.

“Things are wrapping up and they wanted to get me in there and get things on the record,” Nixon said during a phone interview with TheDCNF.

Mueller’s team has been interested in Stone since the beginning of this year. Witnesses interviewed in the probe have said that prosecutors have focused on finding out what Stone and Credico knew about WikiLeaks’ plans to release emails hacked from Democrats, particularly those of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Another Stone associate, independent journalist Jerome Corsi, also reportedly testified before the Mueller grand jury on Friday. Corsi was in contact with Stone during the campaign. Stone has claimed that information Corsi provided him was what prompted a now-infamous tweet that Stone sent on Aug. 21, 2016.

“Trust me, it will soon [sic] the Podesta’s time in the barrel,” Stone wrote.

John Podesta and other Stone critics have suggested the tweet indicated that Stone had advance knowledge of the Oct. 7, 2016, release of Podesta’s emails through WikiLeaks. Stone said he was referring to something that Corsi had told him about John Podesta and the lobbying activities of his brother, Tony Podesta.

Corsi has declined to comment about his interactions with the Mueller team, but he said on his web show on Monday that he has been in contact with investigators on a “really constant basis” for the past two months. Corsi, who said he remains a “very, very strong supporter of Donald Trump,” said that he is continuing his interactions with the Mueller team.

“It’s going to be a while,” he added.

Mueller is also reportedly investigating whether Stone attempted to intimidate or harass Credico. CNN reported Friday that investigators are reviewing text messages and emails between Stone and Credico for evidence of possible witness tampering or obstruction of justice.

Nixon told TheDCNF that he was asked whether Stone attempted to intimidate Credico. But the Stone associate said he did not witness anything of the sort during the dinner in Harlem.

“You just have to tell the truth, Randy. Don’t lie about it,” Nixon recalls Stone saying at the dinner.

Asked whether Stone’s comments could be regarded as witness intimidation, Nixon replied: “What a joke.”

He also said Stone did not pressure him to speak to the media or testify before the grand jury.

“Never once did he ever prompt me on anything,” Nixon said of Stone. “I voluntarily said ‘You know Roger, I know that we had this dinner.’”

While Stone has said in interviews that he expects to be indicted by Mueller, Nixon said he sees no grounds to indict Stone.

“If they indict him, it will be a real travesty, because they don’t have enough to make out the elements of any crime I’ve seen yet,” Nixon told TheDCNF. “If they do, it’s going to be based on bullshit like Randy Credico’s claims.”

Trump About To Prosecute Clinton & Comey – Here’s Who SQUASHED It Last Second

Published

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Washington Times:

President Trump reportedly told his then White House counsel this spring that he wanted the Justice Department to prosecute 2016 presidential opponent Hillary Clinton and former FBI director James Comey.

Citing “two people familiar with the conversation,” the New York Times reported Tuesday that counsel Don McGahn flatly told the president that he didn’t have the power to do that and that even the one thing that could be done — request an investigation — would risk ending his presidency.

“To underscore his point, Mr. McGahn had White House lawyers write a memo for Mr. Trump warning that if he asked law enforcement to investigate his rivals, he could face a range of consequences, including possible impeachment,” the Times wrote.

Though the Times called the reported conversation “one of the most blatant examples yet” of Mr. Trump seeing the Justice Department as a political tool, there was no evidence that Mr. Trump’s musings to Mr. McGahn went beyond that.

It is also unknown whether the president ever read Mr. McGahn’s memo, though the Times reported that “according to two people who have spoken to Mr. Trump about the issue,” he has continued to discuss the possibility of a second special prosecutor to investigate Mrs. Clinton, whom he frequently said during the campaign should be imprisoned for her email practices, and Mr. Comey, whom he fired.

Mr. McGahn left the White House earlier this fall.

Both a White House spokesman and an FBI spokeswoman declined to comment to the Times.

Big Actress Considering Giving Her Baby Away To Another Country Save It From TRUMP

Holy CRAP.

This is some PEAK Trump Derangement Syndrome, folks.

I mean… what planet do these nutjobs even LIVE ON?!

Actress Amber Tamblyn of “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” recently revealed that on the night Hillary lost, she went into a panic attack imagining she would have to give her unborn child up for adoption to Canadians or some ridiculous crap.

I’m not even exaggerating here.

As the night wore on and it became clear that Clinton was facing a steep challenge to the presidency, “I swigged some more Zantac, and my baby shoved her foot into my ribs, as if to foreshadow the pain that was yet to come,” Tamblyn read. Her line “Katy Perry anxiously chewed on a celery stick” drew some laughs. When Clinton’s director of strategic communications informed Javits Center attendees that Clinton would not be speaking, Tamblyn came to a grim conclusion: “A dark realization swallowed me: I was going to bring a baby into this world. And not just any baby: a girl.” Tamblyn recalled imagining if she should give her baby away to Canadians or Swedes.

I’m sorry… but if things REALLY were so bad, wouldn’t you go away WITH your baby? You’d really just hand your baby over to someone?

This is so freaking INSAAANE.

I mean – WTF?! Did any of you ever consider giving up your children because of Obama? No? Yeah. Didn’t think so.

The Hollywood Reporter has more on this story:

Tamblyn, the final reader of the afternoon, shared an essay about the 2016 Election Night from her upcoming release Era of Ignition. The essay recalled 2016’s presidential election night, which Tamblyn spent with Ferrera and comedian Amy Schumer in New York’s Javits Center while several months pregnant. She and her friends wore matching white pantsuits to signal their support of Clinton, “looking like the cast of some new primetime medical drama,” Tamblyn joked.

As the night wore on and it became clear that Clinton was facing a steep challenge to the presidency, “I swigged some more Zantac, and my baby shoved her foot into my ribs, as if to foreshadow the paint that was yet to come,” Tamblyn read. Her line “Katy Perry anxiously chewed on a celery stick” drew some laughs. When Clinton’s director of strategic communications informed Javits Center attendees that Clinton would not be speaking, Tamblyn came to a grim conclusion: “A dark realization swallowed me: I was going to bring a baby into this world. And not just any baby: a girl.” Tamblyn recalled imagining if she should give her baby away to Canadians or Swedes.

At a subway station the following day, Tamblyn read, she began experiencing pain and shortness of breath, which caused her collapse on the stairs. She recalled a “homeless man” saying, “Oh shit, it’s going down!” and offering to cut her umbilical cord with beard scissors if she went into labor. Ultimately, Tamblyn learned she was just having a panic attack.

“’How can I keep her safe?’” Tamblyn recalled asking her doctor on a visit about the attack.

“You can’t, but you can keep her close,” her doctor responded, before suggesting that she listen to a one-minute recording every day to remind her of the tenacity of love. Tamblyn ended her set by playing the recording for the audience: a one-minute record of her baby’s heartbeat.

The 2018 Vulture Fest in Los Angeles, which this year features speakers including the Dirty John cast, Constance Wu, Nick Kroll, Fred Armisen and others, concluded Sunday.
