Sometime in early August, Roger Stone finds out that WikiLeaks next email drop will be from the account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. He tells Donald Trump and campaign officials to expect a leak related to Podesta.
A Senate investigative committee confirms that the information is shared with Donald Trump, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, and likely others. Stone’s intel is believed to come from Council for National Policy member Jerome Corsi.
On October 7, Stone orders WikiLeaks to release the emails to distract from the Access Hollywood tape.
