Credico in Chelsea, out of Stone’s crosshairs
BY LINCOLN ANDERSON
Venturing into Manhattan, Randy
Credico, a.k.a. “Person 2” in
the Roger Stone indictment in
the Russian collusion investigation, was
out on the town in Chelsea Monday. Of
course, right along with him was his
ever-loyal canine sidekick, Bianca.
Tagging along was a two-man Danish
crew doing a documentary on Credico.
But the standup comic-turned-activist/
radio journalist signed an agreement
that the fl ick won’t air until 2020.
They also met up with Martin Stolar,
Credico’s attorney, and a lawyer friend
of Credico’s for a bite at Hollywood
Diner, at Sixth Ave. at 16th St.
To hear Credico tell it, all the TV
news shows are calling him right now,
all wanting to land the fi rst big interview
with him since Stone’s indictment.
He said he’ll likely go on one or two of
the prime-time shows “very soon.” For
right now, though, he’s not really talking
to anyone. And he said he won’t
be able to talk about the case on TV,
though can talk about other things.
Stone has fi ngered Credico as being
his alleged “back channel” to
WikiLeaks, purportedly tipping the
G.O.P. “dirty trickster” off before
WikiLeaks dumped e-mails damaging
to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Credico, though, denies he was

Stone’s indictment. Five of the seven
counts the grand jury charged Stone
with involve Credico, including, notably,
one for witness tampering.
Credico continues to keep a low profi
le. Asked via Facebook messages if
anyone spotted him while he was out in
Chelsea, he said no, that he wore sunglasses
and a baseball cap.
While with the documentary crew,
Credico was mum about the upcoming
court case, in which it’s expected he’ll
testify as a witness. For his part, Stone
has pled not guilty to witness tampering,
as well as obstruction and making
false statements to Congress.
Though Credico told this newspaper
he’s not talking about anything related
to the case now, he gave a tip that he’d
be back in his old Manhattan stomping
grounds Monday with the fi lm crew.
Meanwhile, Stone on Monday posted
an image on Instagram showing a
crosshairs next to U.S. District Judge
Amy Berman, who is presiding on the
case. Last Friday, Berman slapped a
gag order on the proceedings, prohibiting
Stone, the attorneys and witnesses
from talking about it publicly.
Stone reportedly took the threatening
image down after an hour. He later
claimed it was a “random photo” and
meant no disrespect by it.
In their written indictment, Special
Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors
said Stone, in an e-mail last April
9 threatened to take teeny Bianca —
Credico’s therapy dog — from him. The
same day, the indictment states, Stone
e-mailed Credico: “I am so ready. Let’s
get it on. Prepare to die expletive.”
