Mueller witness reveals why Roger Stone allegedly sought WikiLeaks dump

Mueller witness reveals why Roger Stone allegedly sought WikiLeaks dump

While Napolitano agrees that Stone's in "a lot of trouble" with his charges of obstruction, false statements and witness tampering, he also said that the indictment against Stone was "thin", and it's unfair Stone can't review the classified House Intelligence Committee being held up as the basis of his alleged lies.

In one charge, he is accused of threatening a contact of his whose congressional testimony about WikiLeaks would contradict Stone's.

Stone arrived Tuesday in a black SUV wearing an all-blue suit and tie.

While Corsi can not definitively prove Stone coordinated these leaks, the conversation that the two of them allegedly shared on the matter is yet more evidence that Stone had intimate inside knowledge of the stolen emails - and was a source for the Trump campaign on the matter.

Stone said he would've voluntary turned himself in if the Federal Bureau of Investigation contacted his attorneys.

However, "not everyone thought Donald Trump folded like an origami swan", said Colbert.

Tucker Carlson (Alex Moffat), Jeannine Pirro (Cecily Strong), Ann Coulter (Heidi Gardner), Wilbur Ross (Kate McKinnon) talk about the government shutdown and Roger Stone (Steve Martin) stops by to talk about his arrest.

Stone was arrested Friday in South Florida, but the grand jury that indicted him operates in the nation's capital, so he could eventually face trial in Washington.

Stone, a Republican operative since the days of the Watergate scandal that forced President Richard Nixon to resign in 1974, has been a friend and ally of Trump for some 40 years.

Mueller's investigation, which was initially ordered to look into the 2016 election, has gone on for more than a year and half.

Political adviser and consultant Roger Stone said Monday he does not plan to cooperate with the special counsel's investigators. Two minutes later, Stone replied, "I'm not talking to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and if your smart you won't either".

The Stone indictment also claims the Trump campaign reached out to Stone for information on Russia's hack of Hillary Clinton's emails, suggesting Trump had no clue what Russian Federation was up to, and thus the entire Mueller investigation is a politically motivated fraud.

'I would also testify honestly about any other matter, including any communications with the President.

According to an indictment by Mueller's office last July, Russian conspirators used an online persona known as Guccifer 2.0 to communicate with WikiLeaks and ultimately transfer the stolen documents.

But as details of the indictment made clear, Stone was regularly in touch with Trump campaign officials through the election and into the transition.

"'There were 17 vehicles with their lights going, including two armored vehicles in the front yard", Stone said.
