Beginning in early June, Roger Stone has multiple conversations with Trump campaign officials letting them know that WikiLeaks has plans to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
The information was revealed to federal investigators by Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, who had overheard the phone call between Trump and Stone. Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and former deputy campaign chairman, Rick Gates, also told investigators that Stone had mentioned “something big” coming from WikiLeaks.
A separate investigation by a U.S. Senate committee suggest Stone may have told the Trump campaign about WikiLeaks earlier than June (Senate report, page 172).
