Roger Stone

Roger Stone, a former campaign adviser to then-candidate Donald Trump, was arrested by armed federal agents during a pre-dawn raid at his Florida home on Friday. Stone is charged with seven criminal counts of obstruction of justice and witness tampering.

Stone was also charged with making false statements to the House Intelligence Committee during a closed-door session in 2017, according to Robert Mueller's office.

Stone was an adviser to Trump for decades and had contact with Trump during the 2016 campaign.

The indictment does not accuse Stone of meddling in the 2016 election or colluding with the Russians. Stone, a self-professed provocateur, bragged about his connections to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange throughout the 2016 election.

The indictment details Stone's involvement in exposing stolen emails published by Wikileaks in the months leading up to the election. He often predicted when the emails would leak.

Thousands of emails were stolen from the Democratic National Committee's unsecured servers by "Guccifer 2.0" who reportedly hacked into the DNC, Hillary Clinton's foundation, and a computer belonging to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Stone promoted the email leaks on Twitter.com and informed his followers about explosive revelations contained in the emails before they were leaked online.

Stone promoted himself as someone who had direct contact with Assange, even claiming he once had dinner with Assange, which would not have been possible since Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for years.

According to a NY Times report, Stone presented himself as a Wikileaks insider to Steve Bannon, Trump's former campaign chairman and adviser at the time.

After Mueller was appointed as Special Prosector and began to focus his attention on Stone's connections to Wikileaks, Stone changed his story, saying he was not connected to Wikileaks or Assange.

Stone claimed he actually got the information about Podesta's leaked emails from radio host and activist Randy Credico. But Credico denied the allegations.

In February, Credico told the Daily Beast blog that Stone was "a lot of bravado," and "a showman."

The NY Times questioned "whether Mr. Stone was, in fact, a trusted intermediary to Wikileaks - or simply a master of puffery that made him appear so - remains a paramount question for Mr. Mueller's investigators."

    Sandy Sandy Sandy. Luv how your Everest nursing school training taught u how 2 write slick reports but u cant fool us. Loved how us tried 2 slide the phrase he wasnt convicted of the over used word " collusion" as if it is not collusion it is not that serious. Mueller is cold as a mofo. Getting folks locked up during a shut down. Now that is a gangster move.

    Lock all those bastards up and throw away the key! Trump and all his henchmen going down in flames and I'm loving it.

  • Baaba Sanders

    Just yesterday, people were commenting that the shutdown is to save don jnr. from being indicted. I guess this is Mueller's way of putting his message across without saying absolutely nothing.

    Russia, Russia, Russia! How is it that EVERY person around this person is a criminal yet, each and every time one of the closest people to this dude ends up indicted on criminal charges, the minions (who try to make liberals feel bad for those TERRIBLE liberal thought processes like, healthcare for Americans, food stamps for the poor and, public schools with lunch for the hungry) start attacking the person who gets indicted when they start telling on tangerine... but never Tangerine. How is it possible that every person around you is a liar, a leaker a criminal - except you?!

    If I surround myself with drug dealers - I'm probably in the drug game. You've had an attorney handling your corrupt a$$ for 20 years and then, when he flips on you, suddenly, he ain't $hit and he's a "proven liar". It took the smartest man in the world 20 years to figure this out? Really?

    Okay???!! Flasback chile ?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So we're supposed to believe all those people around Trump were colluding, conspiring, meeting with Russian operatives, passing information to Russians through back channels.. and NOBODY once mentioned this to the Big Boss? They did this all and nobody whispered a word to Donald? Come on.
    Any Trump supporters who believe this are either a bunch of dummies, or they think the rest of us are dummies.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Google the name Kenn Starr. He was the special prosecutor appointed to go after Bill Clinton's circle of friends. Starr arrested many of Bill Clinton's associates before the Monica Lewinsky case fell into his lap. This is politics. The side that lost the election appoints a special prosecutor to go after the President's friends. Nothing to see here.

  • Baaba Sanders

    I believe they know. They just don't care about it all to "own the libs."

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Exactly. This indictment is about the coverup. And people don't cover up if there is no underlying crime.

    It just amps me up to vote for President Trump again in 2020. Here's the thing. Black folks may not like Trump but they don't care enough to vote. Who are they going to vote for Kamala Harris whose non-experienced, barely black azz is married to a white man? That's going to motivate blacks to vote? No. People are employed and life is good. President Trump will easily get four more years.
