WASHINGTON | The Latest: Document says Corsi tipped off Stone about leaks
WASHINGTON — The Latest on President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort (all times local):
Prosecutors believe a conservative author tipped off Trump confidant Roger Stone months before WikiLeaks released thousands of emails stolen from Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
That’s according to a document drafted as part of a plea offer to Jerome Corsi. The document was published Tuesday by the Washington Post.
The document says Stone asked Corsi to get in touch with WikiLeaks so he could learn about information that could be relevant to Trump’s campaign.
