Corsi informed Stone about the planned WikiLeaks Dem email releases 2 months in advance.

And Mueller has the exchange. nbcnews.com/politics/justi…
"Stone responded, "Get to (Assange) [a]t Ecuadorian Embassy in London and get the pending (WikiLeaks) emails."

Corsi passed the request along to conservative author Ted Malloch in London"
