New Docs Show Bannon Lied To Congress About Stone

The New York Post reports:

Former White House strategist Steve Bannon gave sharply contradictory accounts under oath of his discussions with convicted felon Roger Stone about WikiLeaks, a review of official records by The Post shows. On Jan 16, 2018 — roughly five months after he left the White House – Bannon told members of the House Intelligence Committee repeatedly that he and political operative Stone had never discussed WikiLeaks or its boss Julian Assange at any time during their relationship.

The testimony, part of Rep. Adam Schiff’s Russia Investigation, was declassified and made public on May 7. Under questioning from Department of Justice prosecutor Michael Marando, Bannon bluntly said that Stone had in fact discussed Assange and WikiLeaks with him before Bannon took over Trump’s campaign in August 2016, according to a transcript of Bannon’s trial testimony. Stone attorney Robert C. Buschel, who questioned Bannon on the stand, declined to comment.
