Special Counsel Robert Mueller wants to meet again with Randy Credico, the New York comedian who was revealed this week as having tipped off Trump confidant Roger Stone to WikiLeaks’ plans to release information that would harm the Clinton campaign.
Credico’s attorney, Martin Stolar, told The Daily Beast that his client will meet with Mueller’s team at some point after Thanksgiving.
Credico testified to Mueller’s grand jury on Sept. 7. He claimed in a CNN interview after his testimony that he told the grand jury that he was not Stone’s source for information about WikiLeaks’ plans to release information damaging to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
