It appears as though the the special counsel’s office has been concentrating heavily on Trump advisor Roger Stone, likely looking at whether or not Stone participated in a conspiracy to violate the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act when he may have helped propagate data that he was not authorized to access.
If Stone worked with Julian Assange and Wikileaks, along with Russian hacker Guccifer 2.0 to obtain or help propagate stolen emails from the DNC, Stone and members of the Trump campaign, as high up as the President himself, may have violated federal law.
Last week it was reported that the “Manhattan Madam” Kristin Davis, had volunteered to sit down with those representing the special counsel’s office. Davis was a close associate of Stone and investigators believe that she may have information regarding Stone’s behavior that may help them conclude whether or not he has violated the law.
Now investigators appear to be ready to issue a subpoena to Randy Credico, another associate of Stone, who according to Stone himself was the middleman between him and Assange.
MSNBC’s Ari Melber has reported that Robert Mueller intends to subpoena Credico shortly, after Credico refused a request to voluntarily sit down with investigators from the special counsel’s office.
“The last thing that I would like to be known as is a rat,” Credico said. “I didn’t talk to the House committee and I’m not going to talk to the Senate committee.”
Credico is likely an important link between Stone and Assange, and his testimony could help determine if Stone did in fact work with Wikileaks and Assange in order to help release stolen emails from the DNC.
Stone claims that he has urged Credico to be open and honest about everything. Stone has also suggested in the past that he expects to be indicted.
