The latest person to be subpoenaed by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign is New York public-radio host Randy Credico. People in the New York cannabis movement have known Credico over the years. He was regular at the Cures Not Wars office at 9 Bleecker St. and has run for New York State office three times. A standup comedian as well, Credico got his start in activism with the William Kunstler Fund for Racial Justice.
GOP dirty trickster Roger Stone, 65, claims Credico, 63, was the go-between with Julian Assange and Russian government hackers in releasing emails stolen by Wikileaks from Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Credico scoffs at the idea he was the connection in a scandal that may have brought Donald Trump to power.
Both Stone and Assange have appeared on Credico’s radio show on WBAI-FM in New York. Credico went to London to interview Assange in 2017. It’s generally believed Credico met Assange through his long association with the civil rights activist group, the Center for Constitutional Rights.
