How I Helped the Mueller Investigation [OPINION]
According to CNN, my interview with Roger Stone is part of the investigation into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. Hear it for yourself.
Back in 2016, I was a regular guest host on Boston Herald Radio's morning show. Because it was a Boston-based program and part of a newspaper with a readership in New Hampshire, we attracted lots of national guests.
I was involved in interviews with then-Senator and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. We had a great time discussing national security issues with John Bolton, who is now the president's National Security Advisor. I even had the opportunity to learn from Ann Coulter that she would accept an appointment from a President Trump to the Federal Communications Commission.
We had great guests, and it was all very interesting.
On September 16, 2016, I was part of a three-person team interviewing Roger Stone. Mr. Stone is a long time political consultant, operating mostly with Republican candidates and causes. Stone worked for Presidents Nixon and Reagan and he was a long time advisor to Donald Trump. The other Boston Herald interviewers were John Sapochetti and Alex Reimer.
During the interview, Stone told us he was in contact with Julian Assange through an intermediary, and he believed Assange's Wikileaks organization would continue to dump the hacked emails of Hillary Clinton and her advisors until the election.
I asked him if he believed Assange was a Russian intelligence agent, and he said he did not believe he was one.

It's certainly a little strange to find out an interview I was part of is now part of a federal investigation into collusion with a foreign power.
Mr. Mueller, if you want to interview me, you know where to find me.
