"The DNC lawsuit opens the door of discovery. My lawyers and I want to examine the DNC servers to settle this bogus claim of Russian hacking once and for all," Stone told The Daily Caller Monday.
Stone's lawyers sent a letter to the DNC informing them that they "intend to test the basic underlying claims that ‘Russians' hacked, stole and disseminated DNC data, rather than the various other plausible scenarios, including internal theft," he told the outlet.past of rushed allegations against Russia that were later proven false.
Stone has been accused of conspiring with the hacker Guccifer 2.0 and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, among others, to get the DNC's internal communications to the public. Stone has at times fueled those claims, by saying he contacted Guccifer 2.0 on Twitter, for example, but has a history of telling tall tales that overestimate his involvement in major political showdowns. He told The Daily Caller on Monday that the DNC's allegations against him over the alleged conspiracy are a "fairy tale, a hoax and a canard."
