LEAK: Mueller Asking if Trump Knew About ‘Stolen’ Podesta Emails Before WikiLeaks Released to Public
Another day, another leak from team Mueller.
Mueller’s team of liberal hack lawyers are asking witnesses if Donald Trump knew Hillary’s campaign emails were stolen before they were released to the public and if Trump was involved in the release.
NBC News reports:
Mueller’s investigators have asked witnesses whether Trump was aware of plans for WikiLeaks to publish the emails. They have also asked about the relationship between GOP operative Roger Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and why Trump took policy positions favorable to Russia.
The line of questioning suggests the special counsel, who is tasked with examining whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election, is looking into possible coordination between WikiLeaks and Trump associates in disseminating the emails, which U.S. intelligence officials say were stolen by Russia.
In one line of questioning, investigators have focused on Trump’s public comments in July 2016 asking Russia to find emails that were deleted by his then-opponent Hillary Clinton from a private server she maintained while secretary of state. The comments came at a news conference on July 27, 2016, just days after WikiLeaks began publishing the Democratic National Committee emails. “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said.
Witnesses have been asked whether Trump himself knew then that Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta, whose emails were released several months later, had already been targeted. They were also asked if Trump was advised to make the statement about Clinton’s emails from someone outside his campaign, and if the witnesses had reason to believe Trump tried to coordinate the release of the DNC emails to do the most damage to Clinton, the people familiar with the matter said.
The President fiercely denies any collusion with Russia during the 2016 election and calls the investigation a witch hunt.
“Russians had no compromising information on Donald Trump” @FoxNews Of course not, because there is none, and never was. This whole Witch Hunt is an illegal disgrace…and Obama did nothing about Russia!

NBC reports investigators are also asking questions about Trump operative, Roger Stone and his relationship with WikiLeaks. They want to know if he ever met with Julian Assange.
Investigators were interested in statements Stone made in the final month of the 2016 campaign that strongly suggested he was aware of information the group had before it became public and when it might be released. In one instance, he wrote on Twitter that “it would soon be Podesta’s time in the barrel.” Weeks later Podesta’s stolen emails were released by WikiLeaks.
To this date, the FBI has not investigated the DNC servers nor have they questioned WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
Julian Assange has stated many time publicly that Russia did not give him the Podesta emails.
House Intel investigators are now looking into whether the joint Intelligence report relied on Hillary’s phony dossier. It appears every so-called Russia report is one big echo chamber of Hillary’s phony dossier, media hacks and crooked deep state operatives within the intelligence community.
Paul Sperry of The New York Post previously reported:
The much-hyped Obama intelligence report that determined “Vladimir Putin ordered” Hillary Clinton’s campaign emails hacked and leaked “to help Trump’s chances of victory” has been accepted as gospel among DC punditry and given the investigations besieging the Trump presidency their legs. To date, no evidence has publicly emerged to corroborate the report, and the reason may have a lot to do with that sketchy dossier bought and paid for by Clinton.
Suspiciously, Barack Obama’s Intelligence Community Assessment matches the main allegations leveled by the Clinton-paid dossier on Trump, which wormed its way into intelligence channels, in addition to the FBI, Justice Department and State Department, during the 2016 campaign.
In fact, the shady dossier makes exactly the same claim — that Putin personally “ordered” the cyberattacks on the Clinton campaign and leaked embarrassing emails to “bolster Trump,” as part of “an aggressive Trump support operation.” Like Obama’s ICA, Clinton’s dossier provides no concrete evidence to back up the claim.
If Mueller was serious about getting to the bottom of the Podesta email ‘hack’, he would have investigated the DNC’s servers and interviewed Julian Assange.
The Russia probe is a huge sham and should be shut down immediately.
