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. 

After the first leak of Russia-obtained DNC emails in July, Stone continues to update the campaign on upcoming email leaks.

Beginning in June 2016, former Campaign member Roger Stone forecast to senior Campaign officials that WikiLeaks would release information damaging to candidate Clinton…

Stone stayed in regular contact with the Campaign claiming to have information about future releases by WikiLeaks, while privately asking his own associates to contact WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and publicly boasting of his access to Assange.

Mueller Report

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).
