One-Time Trump Aide Might Cooperate in Russia Probe

Steve Martin still a wild and crazy 'SNL' guy — as Roger Stone

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.

Roger Stone, a longtime adviser and confidant of President Donald Trump, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges in the Russian Federation investigation after a publicity-filled few days spent torching the probe as politically motivated.

It says a senior Trump campaign official "was directed" to contact Stone about additional releases and "what other damaging information" WikiLeaks had "regarding the Clinton campaign".

Stone made no public statements as he arrived for the hearing in a black SUV.

Carlson said he'd been indicted on seven counts, to which Stone replied, "It was four counts..."

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents were spotted taking away electronic devices including hard drives from Stone's NY apartment, and his recording studio in South Florida was also raided, various reports have noted.

Stone's arrest could carry serious implications for Trump, with the prosecutor describing how his campaign pursued information about hacked emails concerning Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

Stone was often by Trump's side as he talked up a possible 2000 bid for president as a candidate of the Reform Party.

"Had they contacted my attorneys I would have voluntarily turned myself in", Stone told reporters outside his Ft.

"Remember, Trump brags that he only hires the best people, calls the Russian investigation a hoax, calls CNN fake news, and his government shutdown left FBI agents without pay", Meyers explained. There is no allegation in the indictment that Stone actually communicated with Wikileaks. "I will defeat them in court", he vowed Friday outside the federal courthouse in Ft.

Schiff said his panel would give Mueller access to all transcripts of testimony before the committee, including Trump's son Donald Trump Jr., for prosecution purposes.

Stone also rejected the idea that he had any inside line to WikiLeaks, which released materials in 2016 stolen by Russia's military intelligence agency, or that he was part of a conspiracy to help swing the 2016 election for Donald Trump. Look, I honestly believe that they are going to try to charge the president and the vice president with some hoked up frame of Russian collusion. Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) agreed that it's a "pretty damning indictment" and said Stone's defense is pretty typical of "every white-collar defendant in this circumstance".
