Roger Stone: Trump Associate Indicted In Mueller Investigation (WATCH FBI RAID/ARREST!)

*No wonder Donald Trump doesn’t care for the FBI. Maybe it’s also because ANOTHER close associate of his, Roger Stone, has been arrested by the Justice Dept’s police entity.

Stone was arrested Friday on charges that include obstruction of an official proceeding, false statements and witness tampering.

Specifically, a federal grand jury impaneled by special counsel Robert Mueller charged Stone in a seven-count indictment. FBI agents arrested him in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. As of this posting, Stone is to appear in court later today (01-25-19).

Here’s more via HuffPost:

Stone ― who worked on presidential campaigns for Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole and others ― took credit for Donald Trump’s presidential run and served as an informal adviser after he left Trump’s campaign in August 2015.

He repeatedly has said it was “a possibility” that he would be indicted in Mueller’s investigation.

The July 2018 indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers in connection with the hack of a Democratic National Committee server during the 2016 election referred to Stone as “a person who was in regular contact with senior members of the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump.”

Stone has described his contact with the Russians ― who used the handle “Guccifer 2.0” ― as “benign.” He has also admitted to being in contact with Julian Assange of WikiLeaks during the Trump campaign.

Stone told The Washington Post that he met with a Russian national who wanted to sell Trump damaging information on Hillary Clinton for a sum of $2 million. The man had previously worked as an informant for the FBI, but told the Post that he was not working on the FBI’s behalf when he met with Stone in May 2016.

Stone’s indictment came after his associate Randy Credico, a radio show host, testified before the grand jury.

Also, The Hill is reporting that Stone, who expanded his legal team last month, has insisted that he did not have advance knowledge of Wikileaks plans, pointing in an email to The Hill in October to two polygraph tests that he said found him to be truthful.

Stone has separately acknowledged that he is likely to be an unnamed individual referred to in the special counsel’s indictment earlier this year of 12 Russian military officers for the DNC hack.

Looks like he was right.
