- During a whirlwind media tour, Corsi claimed Stone asked him to contact WikiLeaks on Oct. 7, 2016, to begin releasing emails as part of an effort to distract from the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape.
- After weeks of bitter back-and-forth, Corsi is acknowledging Stone “can be right from what he perceived.”
