Listen: Roger Stone, Julian Assange, Donald Trump discussed on Hugh Hewitt
"Gave was wrong wrong. Okay. And it was wrong. Because I forgot the Email. They're referring to I not seen it two years. Okay. So that is what he's going to argue. And by the way, it's very tough to convict on that if he said nothing to indicate that he actually knew that the male against a very tough to convict on that cut number fourteen of Jerome Corsi with Ari Melber at the time. What were you guys trying to do where you trying to get information about the stolen Clinton Email back to the campaign? Yes. And obviously I wanted wouldn't have sent that. If I didn't want me to go everybody in the world who is a news or political operations after July twenty second when Assange two thousand sixteen Assange dumped, all these emails on Debbie Wasserman Schultz said he had more everybody wanted to know what they were. You wanted them out though to help the Trump campaign. Absolutely. Did you see anything wrong with that? No under first of all under New York Times, the US the Pentagon papers case, even at Julian Sanchez, stolen, any committee is classified as a journalist. I can see him. I can get that material I can publish it. I'm not committing a crime. So I was happy to do it. And I was happy that it would benefit Donald Trump. I appreciate you running that on the record. Now, then this is also from the documents that usually your Email us telling stone, you've got a friend in the embassy planning, these two more document dumps John. Yup. That's one shortly after I'm back you right? Second in October impact plan to be very damaging time to let more than the Clinton campaign chair be exposed as in bed with the enemy if they're not ready to drop HR see is that a reference to John Podesta. Yes. And let me explain that. Because this was on the main points of contention with the special counsel, I maintain and as my best recollection that I figured that out now special counsel couldn't believe that this. Of course, we've got emails you knew was Podesta. You knew drop them in October. How he was going to drop them. You do with almost what they included and what they contain. I said, yes, that's true. Well, how'd you know, I figured it out? So you tell Roger stone about Podesta. He goes on to publicly predicted and tweet about it. Correct. That was based on you. Well, I don't know Roger based on it. But I certainly did tell him, and it could have been based on me you'll have to ask Roger what he thinks. I didn't. Well, so there is a very explicit claim that he figured it out. Meaning he did analysis. He wasn't told by Assange. He did analysis again, it could be very difficult to convict on this unless they get Assange into the country cut number fifteen about whether or not Jerome Corsi ever actually dealt with Assange. I have not. I have not met with Mr. Sandra. I never said I had I said, we communicate through an intermediary. Somebody who is a mutual friend. He's that you I don't know you ought to ask Roger now Roger told me on August fifteenth or thirteen and I published an article saying that Roger had made contact with. I didn't think it was me. Because I didn't think Roger believe I contacted what about now that the main thing that links Roger to Assange with private intelligence with things that no one else seemed to know at the time is Podesta, and that came from you could you be Rogers intermediary. I sure, but it was not because I talked to Assange was because I figured it out on my own. I've never spoken with Julian Assange, I don't know him. And I had no contact that. I was an intermediary. There was no third party. Who said Roger stone's making an important point tonight in this interview, which is that Julian Assange as an intermediary the fact that there was information believed to be private proved to be accurate Podesta's time in the barrel. That could have come from you in Rogers. Stones mind that you would be that intermediary. You'll have to answer on your start. Ari missed it. He missed the big. I've never had contact with Assange. This is why you have to listen very closely to an interview you stop. And you say never he didn't do a single Email. He never had a conversation through a cutout. You never ever picked up the phone didn't know who was on the other end and somebody spoke to you that could have been assigned you dig deep into that. Because all we've got now, according to Corsi with Melber Jerome Corsi, sending gossip to Roger stone and Roger stone sending the gossip to the president cut number eighteen. What did they think he in stone? What did they think President Trump new, so whatever its origin? He must've told Trump about that. Well, you know, again, Roger didn't report everything he did to me. I don't know what Roger did wrong. You know, Roger stone is at the center of this. And he is an advisor to Donald Trump. And that was hot information that proved to be true, you would expect he would tell Trump rather than keeping. That was Podesta. I told stone about everybody I knew and I knew it would help Raj help Donald Trump. And it was happy to do that. I was speculating, but I was sure I was right. Is it accurate to say you expected Roger to tell Trump? I didn't look logically. Should I have expected is? Yes, of course. Yes. You know? You asked me, I didn't know see you're asking me questions about somebody else's state of mind. And I can't answer those questions. Well, the expectation sir would be your state of mind said you thought it would help Trump Roger is that Trump advisor Rogers come to you with a very special request. This is not just everyday business Rogers come to you with a request have someone as an intermediary in London Goto Assange, then you come back and give them this hot Intel Podesta, which proves to be true. And I'm asking in the context of that arrangement. Did you expect that information to."
