The longtime Trump confidante allegedly exchanged Twitter DMs with the hackers.

Stone also has bragged about being a back channel to Julian Assange, but has since deleted those tweets.

Every day I think to myself, “There’s no way that Donald Trump’s administration can get scarier.” I mean, they’re already the answer to what would happen if Voldemort’s Death Eaters worked at LexCorp. But then, invariably, I turn on the news and shit gets even spookier. Today’s addition to the “Oh, there really is no bottom this pit we’re falling down, huh?” report is about longtime Trump confidante and former advisor Roger Stone. According to The Smoking Gun Stone reportedly exchanged direct messages on Twitter with “Guccifer 2.0”, who was at the epicenter of the election hacks.

The contact between Roger Stone, the Trump associate, and the Russian influence operation came via private messages exchanged on Twitter, according to a source. Stone’s contact was with “Guccifer 2.0,” an online persona that U.S. officials say was created by Russian government officials to distribute and publicize material stolen during hacks of the DNC, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and Gmail accounts used by Clinton staffers like John Podesta, the campaign’s chairman.

When asked for comment about this allegation, Stone told The Smoking Gun that he “didn’t recall” and that he believed his entire communication with the account was public. And of course Stone did communicate with Guccifer publicly and even praised the account in no uncertain terms for the world to see.

If there was DM communication between Stone and this Russian propaganda account, it may also help explain how Stone knew about Podesta’s emails being hacked DAYS before that was made public and they began leaking.

Look, we don’t know exactly what happened yet between the Trump camp and Russia, but there sure is a hell of a lot of smoke here for there to be no fire.
