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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
