Roger Stone’s Go-Between With WikiLeaks Takes the Fifth
Randy Credico was scheduled to testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Friday.
http://www.motherjones.com/politics/201 ... he-fifth/#

Randy Credico, a comedian and radio host who Trump adviser Roger Stone claims was his intermediary to WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange, has asserted his Fifth Amendment right ahead of an interview with the House Intelligence Committee that was scheduled for Friday, according to his lawyer. As a result, the committee has released Credico from appearing before the panel as part of its investigation into the Trump-Russia scandal.

“Since your client will be pleading the 5th Amendment, the Committee does not require his presence for the scheduled interview,” Kashyap Patel, the committee’s senior counsel for counterterrorism, wrote in an email on Tuesday to Martin Stolar, Credico’s attorney. Stolar shared the correspondence with Mother Jones.

During the 2016 campaign, Stone claimed repeatedly that he was in communication with Assange. When Stone testified before the House Intelligence Committee on September 26, he said his contact with WikiLeaks’ founder had come through a “mutual acquaintance,” but he declined to name that person. At some point since, Stone reportedly told the panel that Credico was his go-between, prompting the committee’s subpoena of Credico late last month. Investigators want to know what information Stone received during the campaign that resulted in his hints that he had inside knowledge of WikiLeaks’ plans. Stone tweeted on August 21, 2016, for instance, that “it will soon [be] Podesta’s time in the barrel,” appearing to accurately predict that WikiLeaks was preparing to publish emails from the Gmail account of John Podesta, then the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Credico is another supposedly "leftist" cipher. He had a show on WBAI, mostly works as a comedian. Yet, he's buds with Roger Stone, and Julian Assange (who remains ridiculously pro-Trump), supposedly at one point started a "Sanders supporters for Trump" group, and headlined a GOP fundraiser during the 2016 cycle. He also said he would support Carl Palladino.

How long have we been saying Pacifica has a real problem?

And how long have wee been saying Julian Assange is not a trustworthy person?

Again, something about this guy doesn't rub me right.

WBAI apparently fired him, but note that they merely say "he's no longer on the schedule".

That means you fired him. Why not just say so?

In addition to hosting Stone on his show, Credico once appeared with Stone on an episode of Alex Jones’ InfoWars. (Credico and Stone have known each other for 15 years.)

[snip]

Stone and Credico were both involved in a bizarre scandal in New York State politics in 2007. As the Huffington Post wrote at the time, Stone had been accused of making a threatening phone call to Bernard Spitzer, the 83-year-old father of Eliot Spitzer, who was governor at the time. But Stone argued that the call actually came from Credico, mimicking his voice.

Anthony Papa, writing for Huffington Post, concluded that “In Credico, Stone found a perfect patsy to deny the allegations that it was he who made the threatening phone call. Credico, for sure, has the ability to mimic Rodger Stone’s voice. He was recently on the Fred Dicker radio show and did Rodger’s voice dead on. But I have spoken at length with Credico and he denies he made THAT phone call.”

[snip][end]

Uh, OK. So, whoever made that crank phone call, why on Earth would "leftist" Credico be working with Stone to harass Eliot Spitzer's father?

Ratfucking on multiple levels.

I think with these guys that it isn’t even a matter of who wins necessarily but rather that they are on the inside and can fuck with the system. They are middle-schoolers at heart who were probably loners or bullied. Now they can get back at some nebulous thing they consider “the man.” The same applies to the former leftists that turned hard neocon/free marketers. They never really had a center with a belief structure. Instead they grab something to give their lives meaning and drop it when something that might challenge them comes along.
