JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

New York comic Randy Credico has a meeting scheduled with special counsel investigators after Thanksgiving, his attorney confirmed to TPM Monday.

The Daily Beast first reported the meeting.

“This thing is never gonna end,” Credico told TPM in a phone interview.

Credico, a Stone acquaintance whom the longtime GOP operative has blamed for being a Wikileaks backchannel, has met with the Mueller investigation multiple times, including a reported September grand jury appearance.

Credico attorney Marty Stolar confirmed that a meeting had been scheduled, calling it “witness preparation.”

Stone has claimed that Credico – and not himself – served as a backchannel to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange over advance knowledge of the release of hacked emails from the Clinton campaign.

Credico denies any substantive link between either of them and Wikileaks, saying that Stone was “desperately trying to get back into the Trump camp” and needed to claim that he had something of value.

Other people who were in contact with Stone during the 2016 presidential campaign have been called in for interviews with the Mueller investigation. That cast of characters has come to include conspiracy theorist and former Infowars DC Bureau Chief Jerome Corsi, Richard Nixon great nephew Tyler Nixon, and filmmaker David Lugo.
