The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that prosecutors on Mueller’s team have been questioning witnesses about Stone’s interactions with and comments about former New York radio host Randy Credico.

Stone has claimed that Credico, a former friend of his, was a conduit between him and WikiLeaks. Credico has repeatedly and publicly denied the allegations.

 

David Lugo, a filmmaker who knows both Credico and Stone, told the Journal that he testified before Mueller’s grand jury about a blog post Stone helped him write that spoke harshly about Credico.

Businessman Bill Samuels said he was also a witness and was asked about Credico’s response to messages from Stone that were allegedly threatening, according to the Journal.

 

Stone denies the allegations.
