Trump ally Roger Stone pleads not guilty on charges in Russian Federation investigation

Trump ally Roger Stone pleads not guilty on charges in Russian Federation investigation

He added that he didn't know which of Trump's senior campaign official were directed to talk to Stone to find out about further releases by WikiLeaks and said he only worked off of information Stone provided him. Stone was charged with five counts of speaking to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the past continuous tense while using verbs in the present flawless and two counts of addressing congress under oath with sentences that included dangling participles.

Between Trump's capitulation on the government shutdown and the arrest of his close associate Roger Stone, Meyers said, "it's not often that a single event sums up an entire presidency but on Friday, we got one that came pretty close".

Mr Mueller past year charged 12 Russians accused in the hacking as part of his investigation of Russia's role in the 2016 election, whether Mr Trump's campaign conspired with Moscow and whether the President unlawfully sought to obstruct the investigation.

Stone must face a federal judge after extending his post-arrest media tour through the weekend and Monday, where he accused the FBI of an unnecessary display of force during his arrest, saying he was treated like drug kingpin El Chapo.

Mr Stone, a Republican political operative since the days of the Watergate scandal that forced his former boss, president Richard Nixon, to resign in 1974, was released on a $US250,000 bond after his arrest.

The indictment does not charge Stone with conspiring with WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy website that published the emails, or with Russian officers Mueller says hacked them.




"Here with his side of the story is a man you look at and instantly think, I trust this guy".

Stone said he would "testify honestly" if he knew about any Trump campaign wrongdoing and didn't rule out speaking about his talks with Trump. US intelligence says the Russian government was behind the hacking campaign. Mueller is the single-most powerful person in America, and yet nobody voted for him. He was in court again on Tuesday and will be again this Friday.

Mueller's team and lawyers with the USA attorney's office for the District of Columbia are jointly prosecuting the case against Stone.

He also stands accused of witness tampering in connection with humorist and radio show host Randy Credico's testimony to the House intelligence Committee. "You can't push a button, and I can't recall precisely, in detail, granularly, conversations, emails, events from 2016", he said.

"It is really to me just a police state tactic and it was horribly wrong", said King.

Other convictions include former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, who both pleaded guilty to making false statements in 2017.
