NATASHA BERTRAND at The Atlantic has a story up where they have released a DM tweet exchange from Stone and Assange. The Atlantic has a very nice timeline of Stone’s actions during the campaign.
On March 17, 2017, WikiLeaks tweeted that it had never communicated with Roger Stone, a longtime confidante and informal adviser to President Donald Trump. In his interview with the House Intelligence Committee last September, Stone, who testified under oath, told lawmakers that he had communicated with WikiLeaks via an “intermediary,” whom he identified only as a “journalist.”
private Twitter messages obtained by The Atlantic show that Stone and WikiLeaks, a radical-transparency group, communicated directly on October 13, 2016—and that WikiLeaks sought to keep its channel to Stone open after Trump won the election. The existence of the secret correspondence marks yet another strange twist in the White House’s rapidly swelling Russia scandal.
“I have never said or written that I had any direct communication with Julian Assange and have always clarified in numerous interviews and speeches that my communication with WikiLeaks was through the aforementioned journalist,” Stone told the committee in his prepared statement in September.
At least one lawmaker had already obtained a screenshot of the exchange before Stone testified, according to two sources familiar with the matter who requested anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation.
Democrats have asked GOP members to subpoena Twitter for the private messages of Trump associates currently under investigation in the Russia probe, according to one of the sources familiar with the internal proceedings. But the majority has so far refused.
So Stone lied to a congressional committee, presumably under oath, which is a crime, and the Republicans on the committee do nothing about it. The purpose of this committee is not to investigate those who attacked our elections, but rather to protect them.
I have a feeling this BS cover-up by the Republicans is going to come back to haunt them. If we help Democrats win back one or both houses of congress, we’re going to see some real investigations. Most of you probably were not around during the Watergate investigation when the Democrats in the Senate and house held PUBLIC hearings! It made for absolutely amazing TV and for a public that is hooked on reality TV, next year is going to be amazing and every one of these bastards who got away with lying to the fascists running these fake investigations will be back and will get drilled in front of an audience of millions.
