New emails show Jerome Corsi was talking about a potential Wikileaks document two weeks before the release of the hacked emails.
The special counsel is looking at an email sent by Corsi to former-Trump campaign aide Roger Stone, according to court documents revealed today.
In an email written by Corsi on August 2nd, 2016 he says, “word is friend in embassy plans 2 more dumps,” which appears to show premeditated knowledge of the eventual Wikileaks release.
Stone, on the other hand, has since responded to the claim saying the email fails to prove he, nor Corsi, has knowledge of the Wikileaks archive or the Podesta emails.
In an interview shortly thereafter, Corsi reiterated his defense to the allegations, saying:
“Now, why did I think they [the emails] were coming out in October? Well I said to myself, ‘if I had these emails, I’d use them as an October surprise,’ and why did I think they would come out serially, drip-by-drip? Because Assange is very strategic, he understands the news cycle.”
The exchange between Corsi and Stone, it’s worth noting, referenced Hillary Clinton’s health.
However, the information they were talking about was never released or detailed in a Wikileaks document dump.
