Trump ally Roger Stone: 'Mutual friend' of Assange tips me off about WikiLeaks

In an interview with The Guardian, Stone said he communicates with an intermediary he describes as a "mutual friend" of his and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. 
 
He didn't disclose the person's identity, but Stone said the source is a libertarian who works on the "opinion side" of media. He said the individual has met with Assange and is not connected to the Trump campaign.
 
Over the past few weeks, WikiLeaks has slowly released thousands of emails apparently stolen from the account of John Podesta, the Democrat's campaign chairman. Many detail the inner workings of Clinton's team.
 
Stone tweeted several days before the first batch of emails was released to the public that Clinton would soon be "done."
 
"Wednesday@HillaryClinton is done. #Wikileaks," he wrote on Oct. 2.
  
Stone said the FBI has not reached out to him in the course of its investigation into the leaks, which are widely believed to be the work of Russian hackers.
 
“There is nothing to investigate,” Stone told The Guardian.
 
Stone said he has not played a part in WikiLeaks's release of the emails.
