Special counsel Robert Mueller said in a new court filing that search warrants have uncovered communications that connect longtime GOP operative Roger Stone to “Guccifer 2.0 and with Organization 1,” which is widely believed to be WikiLeaks.
Mueller made the disclosure in a filing Friday arguing that Stone’s case is properly related to the one involving Russian military hackers who are alleged to have breached the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and personal account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
New filing from Mueller’s office says, in the Russian hacker case, investigators executed search warrants on accounts used to “facilitate the transfer of stolen documents for release” and found interactions with Roger Stone and Guccifer 2.0 and WikiLeaks https://t.co/pVtNEgLYSo

NEW: Mueller says they have account data showing communications between Stone and Wikileaks. They’ve never said this before. Previous indictments left open the possibility Stone may not have actually reached Assange in 2016 https://t.co/YbGMzhJUXA

You know, during the 2016 election as I was writing about Russian electoral interference vis a vis Trump, no one attacked me more than Assange and his purported acolytes. Gee, wonder why, https://t.co/g3wrrSfafk

Just out: Mueller says that in Russian hacker investigation, several search warrants were executed “on accounts that contained Stone’s
communications with Guccifer 2.0 and with Organization 1” (WikiLeaks).
