Ex-Trump adviser Roger Stone arrested on Mueller indictment

Trump confidant Roger Stone is arrested says he’s falsely accused

Stone has publicly denigrated the Mueller investigation and echoed the president's descriptions of it as a witch hunt. In reference to the raid, Trump questioned why CNN was already there and said of the circumstances of Stone's arrest, "Border Coyotes, Drug Dealers and Human Traffickers are treated better". "Who alerted CNN to be there?"

While speaking outside the White House Friday, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the special counsel's latest indictment has nothing to do with the president or the administration.

Stone also reportedly vowed to challenge the allegations in court. Stone had lied about discussions he had about WikiLeaks' DNC hack.

After appearing in court Friday morning, Stone said he would prevail against the investigation and would not "make up lies" to deflect pressure being brought to bear on him.

In the indictment of Stone, however, Mueller's team alleges that a top Trump campaign official directed Stone to contact WikiLeaks regarding the hack and release of thousands of Democratic emails.

"This was an investigation about Russian collusion and now they're charging Roger Stone with lying to Congress about something he honestly forgot about", Smith continued.

When asked if he thought President Donald Trump would pardon him if he was convicted, Stone answered: "The only person I've advocated a pardon for is Marcus Garvey".

Cohen, unlike in the Southern of District of NY case against him, did not say that Trump "directed" him to commit a crime. Michael Cohen , Trump's former personal attorney, has admitted to lying to Congress about a Trump Tower Moscow deal.

Mr Stone also spoke to senior Trump campaign officials about the organisation "and information it might have had that would be damaging to the Clinton campaign", the indictment said.

Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson will present an interview with Roger Stone on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" during the show's 8 p.m. Friday, the network said.

Stone also seemed to suggest to Credicothat he could not invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination because of his strong connection to Trump. That was a play on Stone's own words. That was a play on Stone's own word - he had tweeted cryptically before the Podesta emails were disclosed that it would soon be Podesta's "time in the barrel".

Trump had said he fired Stone from his presidential campaign. "STONE was contacted by senior Trump Campaign officials to inquire about future releases by Organization 1".

On or about May 21, 2018, Person 2 wrote in an email to STONE, "You should have just been honest with the house Intel committee. you've opened yourself up to perjury charges like an idiot". And some of those communications were very much requests for information that Stone wanted from Wikileaks: "I am e-mailing u a request to pass on to [Assange]", Stone texted Credico on September 18, 2016, according to the indictment. Mueller has indicted several Trump-campaign associates but has not charged anyone for colluding with Russian Federation.

Other convictions include: former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, who both pleaded guilty to making false statements in 2017. "Stone" that the head of Organization 1 had "emails related to Hillary Clinton which are pending publication".
