Remember – the Special Counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is looking into whether ANYONE from Team Trump colluded with Russian actors to affect the election.
Roger Stone, longtime adviser to Donald Trump foreshadowed upcoming WikiLeaks disclosure on Alex Jones’ “InforWars” show the same day he emailed Trump adviser Sam Nunberg that he had had dinner with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
You see where this is going, right?
On the August 4, 2016, InfoWars show, Stone described the soon-to-appear WikiLeaks disclosures. He also mentioned that he spoke with then-Republican nominee Donald Trump on August 3 — the day before the interview. InfoWars is a fringe media outlet run by Alex Jones, who is known for spreading conspiracy theories.
Stone wrote to former Trump adviser Sam Nunberg on August 4, 2016, that he had dinner with Assange the night before, according to a source familiar with the email exchange. The email was first reported by the Wall Street Journal on Monday. The Journal also reported that special counsel Robert Mueller is examining the exchange.
Stone has said the email about the dinner was sent in jest and that he has never met or spoken with Assange.

That email Stone says he sent in “jest,” acting like a big man, is exactly what’s jacking him up right now.
Trump has said repeatedly that “there was no collusion.”
It’s very possible Trump didn’t know his advisers were in contact with foreign actors interfering in the election. But that doesn’t mean someone in his camp wasn’t “colluding.”
