Liberal PAC Wants Unreleased Footage From Netflix's Roger Stone Doc After Daily Beast Report

The liberal PAC American Bridge 21st Century is seeking unused footage from the Netflix documentary on long-time Trump adviser Roger Stone, following revelations that the DNC hacker with whom Stone communicated was, in fact, a Russian intelligence officer. The report from The Daily Beast on Thursday, revealing new details of Guccifer 2.0's identity, places Russia more squarely behind the high-profile hack. It also raises questions as to whether Stone willingly or unwittingly communicated with Russian officials. American Bridge suspects that answers may be found in the unaired footage of the Netflix film "Get Me Roger Stone." "We know that the documentary in question ran 92 minutes in total. But we also know that as with all major productions, there are potentially hours—if not days—worth of additional footage of Mr. Stone that was left on the cutting room floor," Bradley Beychok, the group's president, wrote in a letter to the company, obtained by The Daily Beast. "This unreleased footage has taken on new importance in light of last night’s bombshell media report that for the first time connects Russian intelligence operations to 'Guccifer 2.0,' the hacker who takes responsibility for the theft of private Democratic National Committee communications and their subsequent release, and to Roger Stone, who by his own admission was in contact with the hackers in 2016." Stone, for his part, maintained today that the person with whom he interacted was not in fact a Russian agent.
