Stone has denied any wrongdoing and strongly proclaims his innocence. However, Stone is also not the most optimistic about his chances and had said that he expects to be indicted by the Mueller team.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s interest in Roger Stone is “pretty much fixed” on finding out whether the former Trump associate cooperated with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, says one witness in the investigation.
Jason Sullivan, a former social media adviser for Stone, told The Wall Street Journal that Mueller’s team has contacted his attorneys in recent days asking questions about Stone’s “cooperation with Julian Assange.”
“That’s the main thing,” said Sullivan. “They’re pretty much fixed on him.”
Sullivan, who testified to a federal grand jury on June 1, told The Journal that the special counsel contacted his lawyers within the past few days with additional questions about Stone’s possible links to Assange.
