Stone, a longtime Republican strategist and ally of the president, was indicted on seven charges Friday as part of special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE's investigation.

The post, showing Mueller as a waiter, came a day after he posted a mock-up image labeled "Who framed Roger Stone" in the style of the 1989 classic "Who framed Roger Rabbit" and held a press conference outside a Florida courtroom in which he declared the FBI Special Counsel probe "politically-motivated".

Trump has repeatedly slammed the Mueller investigation as a "witch hunt" and insisted there was "NO COLLUSION" with Russian Federation.

"For those who say he's not a conservative, he's not a Republican, he was there in the Reagan revolution", Stone said.

DOJ spokesman Peter Carr said in an email that Stone will appear before a federal judge in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at 11 a.m. ET.

Stone has remained in Trump's orbit ever since, by turns serving as a lobbyist, business consultant, and political confidante.

Stone said any evidence against him is being taken out of context, and that he expects to be acquitted and vindicated.

Following the arrest, Trump questioned why CNN was on hand to film the arrest. Trump liked the "publicity" and the "notoriety" but was not "serious about running", Stone recalled in the interview.

Earlier this week, long-time friend and Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone was indicted on seven felony counts.

"In Mueller's mind this is a campaign cavorting with the enemy", Zeldin said.

He's not the only one who was horrified by what just transpired in the NY legislature. The legislation was then signed into law by New York Gov.

Whatever the case, the parting of ways did not stop Stone from serving as loud cheerleader of Trump's presidential bid.

"If life is a stage, then you should always be in costume", he told the New York Times in 2015. Schiff says the most significant allegation is that a senior campaign official "was directed" in July 2016 to contact Stone about additional WikiLeaks releases.

The charges stem from what prosecutors say were Stone's efforts to hide the nature of his discussions during the 2016 election about WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy group that released thousands of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

In the indictment, the special counsel alleges that Stone communicated with the Trump campaign and told campaign officials that WikiLeaks "had documents whose release would be damaging to the Clinton Campaign". "#CrookedHillary." In October, WikiLeaks released thousands of emails hacked from Podesta's Gmail account. Joy Reid asked before noting, "I know at one point, there were emails The New York Times found where Steven Bannon is emailing [regarding Stone]".

Flaherty said Stone's role in Trump's election has been exaggerated.

How does he know Donald Trump? "The other, I think very real possibility, is he just finds a cover-up". "By in or around mid-August 2016, Organization 1 made a public statement denying direct communication with STONE".

Roger Stone may have a tattoo of Richard Nixon on his back, but the Nixon Foundation is turning its back on Roger Stone.

The indictment does not say Mr Stone committed any criminal activity during the election.
