Steve Bannon, Former Trump Campaign Executive, Implicated In Mueller Indictment of Roger Stone

Published

on

In October 2016, Roger Stone exchanged emails with Stephen K. Bannon, then the chief executive of Mr. Trump’s campaign. In one email exchange, Mr. Stone wrote that more WikiLeaks disclosures were forthcoming, “a load every week going forward,” according to the indictment.

Mr. Bannon appears to be the official described in the court document as “the high-ranking Trump Campaign official,” based on previous disclosures about the email exchange.

FROM: Steve Bannon
TO: Roger Stone
EMAIL:
He didn’t cut deal w/ clintons???

In social media posts and numerous interviews before the 2016 election, Mr. Stone indicated that he had advance knowledge that a trove of information damaging to Mrs. Clinton’s campaign might be about to spill into public view, and even suggested that he had personally spoken to the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange.

An unnamed “high-ranking Trump Campaign official” emailed Stone in early October 2016, days before Wikileaks began to publish the emails, “asking about the status of future releases,” the indictment alleges.

Stone replied that Assange had a “[s]erious security concern” but that Wikileaks would release “a load every week going forward.”

A person familiar with the matter confirmed to News This Second that the indictment is referring to Bannon.

Wikileaks began publishing the emails, stolen from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s account, on Oct. 7, 2016.

“Shortly after Organization 1’s release, an associate of the high-ranking Trump Campaign official sent a text message to STONE that read ‘well done,’” prosecutors allege. “In subsequent conversations with senior Trump Campaign officials, STONE claimed credit for having correctly predicted the October 7, 2016 release.”
