Roger Stone Tells Tucker Carlson: This is About Silencing Me

Posted January 29, 2019

Stone was charged Friday with obstructing Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 US election and lying to congressional investigators.

The agents arrested him on Friday on charges of obstruction, giving false statements, and witness tampering in relation to the ongoing Russian Federation investigation.

It was the first move in months by the special prosecutor probing Russian collusion in the 2016 U.S. election and whether Trump and his people tried to obstruct justice.

Following his court appearance in Fort Lauderdale, Stone told reporters he would plead not guilty to all the charges against him and would not testify against Trump.

The indictment of Roger Stone, former adviser to Donald Trump, who was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has revealed more evidence that Trump's campaign had no "back channel" with WikiLeaks, the whistleblower organization said. "Open the door", CNN said.

Mr Stone could then be seen in the doorway in his sleepwear before he was led away.

"I look forward to being fully and completely vindicated", he said, while adding that he wouldn't lie about the president to investigators. The campaign said it fired him after he tried to grab too much of the spotlight while Stone insisted that he quit.

The filing lays out how Stone, who left Trump's campaign in 2015, continued communicating regularly with unnamed senior campaign officials about WikiLeaks and its plans.

Though no officials are identified by name, one Trump campaign aide cited in the case is Steve Bannon, who later became Trump's chief White House strategist.

He picked up support from the White House Saturday morning, when Trump asked rhetorically about why Federal Bureau of Investigation officials he alleges lied to Congress weren't indicted - and also brought up 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's email scandal. Instead, it accuses him of lying about his interactions related to WikiLeaks' release during probes by Congress and Mueller's team into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

That official, who is not named in court papers, asked Stone about additional releases and "what other damaging information" WikiLeaks had "regarding the Clinton campaign", the indictment says. The network has said it sent a camera crew to Stone's house following a hunch after grand jury activity the previous day.

"Have you ever had any conversations with the president during the campaign or since the campaign about Russian Federation or the Mueller investigation?"

But days later Mr Stone wrote a piece for Business Insider in support of the Republican candidate, titled "The man who just resigned from Donald Trump's campaign explains how Trump can still win".

Stone was an early Trump backer whose reputation as an aggressive political operative and self-proclaimed "dirty trickster" dates back to the Watergate scandal of the 1970s when he was working for Richard Nixon. "I don't own a firearm, I have no prior criminal record, my passport has expired", Stone told ABC's This Week news magazine programme.

"This is not some casual, low-level contributor to the Trump Campaign".

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".

Last year, Mueller's prosecutors offered a plea agreement to Corsi that would have required him to admit that he lied about discussing WikiLeaks with Stone.

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

Michael Caputo, a longtime Stone associate and former Trump campaign adviser, said he expected Stone to fight the charges.

"Members of this Committee had made certain "assertions against me which must be rebutted here today", he stated".
