The filmmakers behind a 2017 documentary about Roger Stone, an ally and ex-adviser to Donald Trump during his rise to the presidency, said he was actively trying to meet with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and wanted them to record their meeting if one were to ever take place.

“Roger has been remarkably inconsistent and consistent at the same time about Julian Assange. You know, he spoke to us many times about us filming him meeting with Assange in London and that never panned out as far as we know,” Morgan Pehme, co-director of "Get Me Roger Stone" told Greater Boston Thursday.

The Netflix documentary directed by Pehme, Dylan Bank and Daniel DiMauro, who also appeared on the Greater Boston, chronicles Stone’s life and rise in the political world, as well as his involvement with the campaign of President Donald Trump.

On Monday, The Wall Street Journal reported Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is tasked with investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, is looking into an e-mail Stone sent in 2016 where claimed he had dinner with Assange. Stone says the e-mail was sent as a joke.

With Stone, Pehme says, you never really know if he’s telling the truth, but affirmed to host Jim Braude that he believed some kind contact did take place.

“Stone communicated with Guccifer,” he told Braude, referencing the hacker who took credit for stealing Democratic National Committee emails. “He had some sort of communication with Assange, but whether it's to the degree that it's been made out to, that is something that we can't really confirm or deny.”

“I mean, we were following Roger very closely during that time period, and as far as we know, he never really did make it to London,” he said.
