Roger Stone: Political trickster long in Trump's orbit

Trump adviser Roger Stone arrested on seven charges

Stone assured him that WikiLeaks would release "a load every week going forward".

Asked repeatedly if Trump had directed a senior campaign official to contact Stone about the stolen emails, Sanders did not directly answer, saying she had not read the indictment and referring specific questions to Trump's outside counsel. "STONE thereafter told the Trump Campaign about potential future releases of damaging material by Organization 1", prosecutors wrote.

Stone is scheduled to appear in court in Florida later Friday.

Stone was charged with seven counts and accused of lying to Congress and trying to obstruct the House Intelligence Committee's investigation into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

A spokesman for Mueller's office said Stone, 66, was arrested in Fort Lauderdale on Friday morning after being indicted by a federal grand jury a day earlier. He is also accused of making false statements to the House Intelligence Committee about his interactions related to the release by WikiLeaks of hacked emails during the 2016 presidential election.

Roger Stone, a confidant of US President Donald Trump, was arrested before dawn today in a criminal case that revealed that senior members of the Trump campaign sought to benefit from the release of hacked emails damaging to Hillary Clinton.

Trump calls the Russian Federation investigation a "witch hunt".

Johnson, who for a time famously changed his last name to "Ochocinco" while playing in the National Football League - so that it matched his jersey number, 85 - shared his insights around 8:30 a.m., a few hours after Stone's arrest was captured by CNN.

After the October 7 releases, Stone boasted to "senior Trump Campaign officials" that he had correctly predicted the data dump, prosecutors say. Stone, who asserted that he resigned from the campaign, continued supporting Trump throughout 2016.

Michael Cohen, U.S. President Donald Trump's former personal attorney, exits the United States Courthouse after sentencing at the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, U.S., December 12, 2018.

In the indictment, USA prosecutors said Mr Stone had "sent and received numerous emails and text messages during the 2016 campaign in which he discussed Organisation 1, its head, and its possession of hacked emails".

Stone's indictment, available online, contains concrete examples of contradictions between the political advisor's statements and what was later found to be the truth by prosecutors.

The men passed on much of the information after WikiLeaks began speaking publicly about stolen documents it had but before all had been released.

Should Democrats bring impeachment charges against Trump, there's one important detail they would have to take into consideration: the Senate they didn't manage to win back from the Republicans in November 2018.

The revelations cost him his job for then-Senator Bob Dole, but Mr Stone insists he did not break any law.

All seven of the charges against Stone strike to the core of Russian interference, since they involve his alleged attempts to hide his efforts to gather information regarding hacked emails potentially damaging to the Clinton campaign. "Who alerted CNN to be there?"

The dog - a Coton de Tulear named Bianca - belongs to New York City comedian, radio host and moonlighting civil rights activist Randy Credico. Credico has denied that he acted as an intermediary. Yet, the document outlines different occasions in which "Stone and Person 2 engaged in frequent written communication by email and text message". Plead the fifth. Anything to save the plan'.

He dropped out of college to volunteer on President Richard Nixon's re-election campaign and has always claimed to relish that involvement. Stone warned Credico he would get "indicted for perjury" because he could contradict Stone's testimony.

Roger Stone has been known to revel in his reputation for underhanded tactics.

Multiple times, Stone told him to do a "Frank Pentangeli", a reference to a "The Godfather: Part II" character who feigned innocence to Congress.
