Credico 'merely confirmed what Assange had said publicly. He was correct. Wikileaks did have the goods on Hillary and they did release them,' he said, in reference to Democratic emails that got posted during the campaign.

'The Committee is wasting their time. He merely confirmed what Assange had said publicly,' Stone continued, alternating between the first and third person.?

'Credico never said he knew or had any information as to source or content of the material Mr. Credico never said he confirmed this information with Mr. Assange himself. Mr. Stone knew Credico had his own sources within WikiLeaks and is credible. Credico turned out to be 100 % accurate,' he wrote.

'And that's been my point of view. I still believe that. There's still no evidence, no hard evidence that the Russians hacked the election. It was a inside job,' he said.
