Trump Ally Roger Stone Shows Up at Ecuadorian Embassy Housing Julian Assange

Longtime Donald Trump political advisor Roger Stone visited the Ecuadorian Embassy in London on Wednesday, where Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has received diplomatic immunity for the last five years, The Daily Beast reports.


Stone has a long history of communication with Wikileaks. Stone’s coordination with Wikileaks has been investigated by Congress; Assange’s coordination with Stone has been scrutinized by journalist Amy Goodman.

Stone testified before the House Intelligence Committee in September, and in October named his backchannels conduit to Wikileaks.

“I didn’t go and see him, I dropped off a card to be a smart ass,” Stone told The Daily Beast.

Stone added, “I don’t even think he’s there anymore.”
