Roger Stone's lawyer on Friday clashed with a key witness in the longtime Trump adviser's trial over charges of lying to Congress.
During a heated cross-examination, Stone's lawyer questioned the credibility of radio host and political activist Randy Credico, with the judge at numerous times intervening.
Stone is accused of lying to lawmakers about his claims of having an intermediary with WikiLeaks as the organization was preparing to release stolen emails from Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2016.
He told the House Intelligence Committee in 2017 that Credico was his back channel to WikiLeaks. Credico has denied having any inside knowledge about WikiLeaks or feeding any information about the group to Stone.
But in the courtroom on Friday, Robert Buschel, an attorney on Stone's legal team, repeatedly pressed Credico about his ties to Margaret Ratner Kunstler, a lawyer who helped him arrange a radio interview with WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange.
Stone's lawyers argued that Credico had portrayed himself as an intermediary to WikiLeaks in the past.
Credico admitted that he once claimed with what he said was "a wink and a nod" to being Stone's back channel to Assange. But he insisted those remarks made at a party in 2018 were not intended to be taken seriously.

NONE of this Mueller stuff is to be taken seriesly.
Especially with Obama Judge Amy in charge...
“He told the House Intelligence Committee in 2017 that Credico was his back channel to WikiLeaks.”
The prosecutors are pulling out all the stops to convict Stone.
Randy Credico is not credible, period.
Do they have an army battalion guarding the court house? Stone is a huge escape threat, ya know. . . . /sarc
The bolded part certainly damages the case. I’d say it torpedoes it.
So this guy admits that Stone didn’t lie about it?
Did he testify in his Crazy Bernie voice? Or his Bill Clinton voice?
Judging by the comments, The Hill caters to TDS sufferers. I don’t know why we should pay any attention to anything The Hill has to say.
Why in the HELL is this nonsense taking up space in a supposed court of law????
Then he said “I shot the clerk”. And then he repeated it, “I shot the clerk”.
The “a wink and a nod” defense. Mob bosses could use that one. Yeah I said I wanted this guy out of my face, but hey it was a wink and nod. I never thought my cousin Luigi who has known me all these years would take me literally.
“Randy Credico is not credible, period.”
The Feds built an entire case against Roger Stone based on the imaginary links Credico bragged he had but didn’t actually exist.
Once again, the Stasi have taken over America and are targeting political opponents.
Margaret Ratner Kunstler? Those last two names should raise a shitload of eyebrows and FBI investigations. If she is a member of either Red/communist families, then the Soviet/Russian connection is a real possibility. Roger, get your investigators out into the field, ASAP.
Margaret Ratner Kunstler is indeed the widow of William Kunstler.
And she’s National Lawyer’s Guild as you guessed.
I could see her being a lawyer for Obama’s commie CIA director John Brennan but it is odd seeing Roger Stone pick her.
The question is how/why Kunstler is involved with Credico. More to this story than is being mentioned. Trust me. Something stinks re Credico.
Her husband also represented the mob and the 1993 World Trade Center bombers, and after his death, the Center for Constitutional Rights he cofounded represented terrorists.
She is Credico’s lawyer not Stone’s.
