Special counsel Robert Mueller won’t give up.

He is facing mounting pressure to wrap up his investigation.

But that only forced him to prepare a surprise attack on Donald Trump that could lead to his downfall.

Robert Mueller Focuses On Roger Stone

Robert Mueller is desperate.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is reportedly pressuring him to finish his investigation by the end of the year.

These same reports cite other sources claiming that Mueller is getting ready to turn in a report after the midterm elections.

So the dying days of his probe now see Mueller zeroing-in on Trump associate Roger Stone.

Stone is Mueller’s last chance to prove a collusion case.

In 2016, Stone claimed to have spoken with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Both WikiLeaks and Assange deny they were in contact with Stone.

In fact, private twitter messages between Stone and WikiLeaks’s official account showed WikiLeaks telling Stone to stop falsely claiming a connection to the group.

When Stone testified before the House Intelligence Committee, he claimed that New York City radio host Randy Credico was his backchannel source to WikiLeaks.

Credico had interviewed Assange on his radio program in 2016.

But Credico told Mueller’s grand jury that he was not Stone’s source.

Stone claims Credico lied to the grand jury.

According to The Washington Post, Stone told them that, “[Credico]was my principal source regarding the allegedly hacked emails published by WikiLeaks.”

Credico has denied this claim.

But two Stone associates provided text messages to the Post where Credico says he was Stone’s source.

 

Stone also added that his tweet predicting WikiLeaks would soon release information related to Hillary Clinton had come from an associate that had forwarded it to him from another journalist.

Robert Mueller Finds A Second Target

Mueller also dragged conservative journalist Jerome Corsi in front of his grand jury.

FBI agents interviewed his associates as well.

Stone hinted that Corsi could have been a second source of information about WikiLeaks.

The Post reported:

Later, Stone acknowledged to The Post that he “obliquely” told Credico in an email that he had “a second source” of WikiLeaks information besides the New York comedian.

He told The Post that person was not a direct conduit to WikiLeaks. He said he was referring to information another associate passed to him from a journalist who wrote in a July 2016 email that he had heard WikiLeaks would be releasing information related to the Clinton Foundation.

In August 2016, Stone tweeted that it would soon be the “Podesta’s time in the barrel.”

Journalists claimed that meant he knew in advance about WikiLeaks publishing hacked emails obtained from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

But Stone said he was referring to opposition research Corsi had gathered about Podesta and his brother Tony’s business dealings.

Stone told the Post that Corsi met with Trump in 2016 and that Mueller may be more interested in that meeting.

Critics contend Mueller may use that meeting to frame Donald Trump for collusion with Russia.
