The special counsel’s office interviewed former White House strategist Steve Bannon for the second time on Friday, this time about any interactions between the Trump campaign and Roger Stone, according to a report.
The interview with Bannon, first reported by The Washington Post, is the latest indication that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is speeding up an investigation into Stone.
Mueller and his team are interested in finding out whether Stone, a longtime friend of President Donald Trump’s, had advance knowledge of WikiLeaks’ plans to release emails stolen from the DNC and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
Stone has denied wrongdoing and claims he did not know about email hacks before they occurred. He has also denied having direct contact with Wikileaks or its founder, Julian Assange.
