Randy Credico, a liberal talk show host described as an intermediary between Trump confidant Roger Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, told Senate Russia investigators that he’s planning to plead the Fifth Amendment in response to its subpoena for testimony and documents, Politico reports.
Special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed Randy Credico to testify before a grand jury next month, CNN reports.
“Credico previously declined a request from Mueller’s team for a voluntary interview. Roger Stone claimed Credico was his back-channel to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during the 2016 campaign.”
“Former Trump adviser and longtime political troublemaker Roger Stone has been asked repeatedly how he knew, seemingly in advance, that WikiLeaks was going to publish damaging information about Hillary Clinton’s campaign. And he has repeatedly refused to answer, saying he had a ‘go-between’ who did not wish to be named,” ABC News reports.
“On Tuesday, however, Randy Credico, a New York comedian and political activist who hosts his own radio show, tweeted a picture of a congressional subpoena compelling him to appear on Dec. 15 before the House Intelligence Committee… Credico has been identified as the intermediary between Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and will face questions from investigators about those relationships.”
