A radio personality who reportedly talked with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during the 2016 campaign said Monday the “preponderance” of questions he faced before special counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury were about President Donald Trump ally Roger Stone.
In an interview on MSBC, Randy Credico deflected most questions about his 3-hour appearance last Friday before the grand jury in New York working with Mueller’s Russia probe — including whether Mueller was in the room.
“I didn’t look,” he said.
Pressed on whether he was grilled about Assange, Credico replied: “Peripherally. Most of it was about” Credico’s associate and Trump ally Stone.
He added neither Assange nor WikiLeaks — the anti-secrecy group that released hacked Democratic emails during the election — were of primary interest to the prosecutor, whose name he refused to divulge.
Answering whether “a good bulk of the questions” were about Stone, Credito declared: “Yes, they were. I would say the majority, the preponderance.”
But the exchange was occasionally testy.
“There you go again, as [Ronald] Reagan would say,” he replied when asked if Mueller’s interest in Stone was focused on what he did for Trump in 2016 or his business activities.
“I’m not supposed to talk about it,” he said. “You’ll find out real soon. Maybe the Mueller team will leak it, you know? Did you ask them?”
“They talked about Roger Stone most of the time,” he added. “Plus, I got a letter from the Senate [Intelligence] Committee as I was inside that room. So I’ve got that coming. I have to go before the Senate.”
Then in an odd final comment, Credico urged viewers to vote for progressive Democrat Cynthia Nixon, who’s running against New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo in New York’s primary Thursday.
