During the 2016 presidential campaign, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange raised doubts about former Trump adviser Roger Stone’s claims that he hadadvanced knowledge of upcoming WikiLeaks document releases, according to Twitter group messages reviewed by The Intercept.
In the piece, The Intercept’s Micah Lee and Cora Currier write that the group messages “don’t reveal anything new about WikiLeaks’ relationship with the Trump campaign, although they are consistent with the group’s public statements casting doubt on claims by former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone that he had advanced knowledge of the group’s anti-Clinton leaks.”
In August of 2016, after Stone claimed “I actually have communicated with Assange,” the WikiLeaks founder questioned Stone’s credibility. “Stone is a bullshitter,” Assange told the private group of WikiLeaks supporters. “Trying to a) imply that he knows anything b) that he contributed to our hard work.”
Stone has a history of taking credit for others’ work and making statements of dubious accuracy. Just two months ago, Stone falsely claimed credit for bringing Bill Clinton’s accusers to the second presidential debate, a task that was actually arranged by GotNews Editor-in-Chief Charles C. Johnson.
Stone’s claims became so ridiculous that Juanita Broaddrick eventually took to Facebook to call Stone out, writing “Stone had no part in my appearing at 2nd debate. I have never met or talked to Stone.”
