Jerome Corsi told Roger Stone about the Wikileaks plan to dump John Podesta‘s emails in October, and Stone called Trump the next day.
By August 2, 2016, Corsi was emailing Stone to predict that WikiLeaks had more document dumps in the works. Stone has said he spoke with Trump the following day, August 3.
“Word is friend in embassy plans 2 more dumps. One shortly after I’m back. 2nd in Oct. Impact planned to be very damaging,” Corsi wrote, according to the draft document. “Time to let more than [the Clinton Campaign chairman] to be exposed as in bed w enemy if they are not ready to drop HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton]. That appears to be the game hackers are now about. Would not hurt to start suggesting HRC old, memory bad, has stroke — neither he nor she well. I expect that much of next dump focus, setting stage for Foundation debacle.”
The Information Chain Is Becoming Clear
Corsi met with Assange then told Roger Stone, who took the information about the emails directly to Donald Trump. This means that Trump had knowledge of emails that were stolen by a hostile foreign power and used to benefit his presidential campaign. If Trump denied having direct knowledge of the emails in his written answers to Mueller, that would a lie that he told to the special prosecutor.
Lying to Mueller won’t get Trump a stint in jail with the rest of his friends, but it will be enough for House Democrats to launch an impeachment investigation.
Trump has spent the last few days freaking out about Mueller on Twitter, and now it is clear why.
Mueller may be able to connect Trump directly to the conspiracy with Wikileaks and Russia, and if that is the case, Trump has committed worse crimes than many had previously imagined.
