The comments also raise more questions about what Stone knew about WikiLeaks and about the correctness of his allegations, contacting Assange, whom he now denies.
On August 4, 2016, InfoWars Show, Stone described the upcoming WikiLeaks revelations. He also mentioned that on August 3, the day before the interview, he spoke to former Republican Donald Trump. InfoWars is an edge media outlet run by Alex Jones, who is known for propagating conspiracy theories.
Stein said that the e-mail about the dinner was joking and that he never met or talked to Assange.
Stone continued discussing dinner with Nunberg over the phone, said this source. In this conversation, Stone told Nunberg that impending leakages would pass through the Clinton Foundation.
In an interview with Jones on InfoWars, Stone said he believes Assange has evidence of misconduct at the Clinton Foundation.
"The Clinton campaign stories that the Russians prefer Donald Trump and the Russians leak that information is vaccination because, as you said, they know what's coming and it's devastating," Stone told the InfoWars -Interview. "Let's remember that their defense against all Clinton Foundation scandals is not what we did not do, but you have no evidence, yes, but you have no evidence."
"I think Julian Assange has this proof and I think he It will set it up for the American people, "said Stone.
In an email to CNN, Stone again denied the meeting with Assange.
"Airline and credit card records show that I flew with Jet Blue from NY to LA on August 1 and returned from LA to Miami on August 3. Credit card records show that on the 1st and 2nd. August at the London hotel in West Hollywood, my ID shows that I've never left the country in 2016 – no matter how traveling to London I have not perfected the ability to be two places at once, "he wrote.
Stone's statement agrees with what he said in the interview with InfoWars in August 2016. He told Jones that he had flown from Los Angeles to Miami that night.
