Donald Trump’s former adviser Steve Bannon confessed on Friday during a hearing that Roger Stone was used as an “access point” between the Trump campaign and Wikileaks, the document-dumping website that released hacked emails damaging to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

According to the Associated Press, Bannon was subpoenaed as a “reluctant witness” in Stone’s current criminal trial in federal court.

“The campaign had no official access to WikiLeaks or to Julian Assange. But Roger would be considered if we needed an access point,” Bannon said, adding that Stone repeatedly “implied that he had a connection with WikiLeaks” without stating it directly.
