Much speculation has been made regarding the role former Donald Trump presidential campaign adviser Roger Stone played in the various hacking and leaking scandals that plagued the 2016 election.
And now, Stone finds himself speculating on the recent leaks to come from the Trump White House.
At an event at the Capitol Hill Club for Young Republicans, Stone was questioned by a tracker from American Bridge, the Democratic opposition research shop.
Stone was asked: “Do you think it was someone in the White House, in the Republican Party, who leaked Don Jr.’s emails to the New York Times today?”
“Yes,” Stone replied.
“Do you have any idea who it might have been,” the woman asked in response.
“Yes,” Stone replied again.
When pressed to tell his questioner who it was, he demurred, saying, “I can’t tell you.”
When pressed further, Stone gave a teaser of an answer: “Their initials are J.K.”
