Trump Responds to Stone Arrest, Denies Collusion

Trump Responds to Stone Arrest, Denies Collusion

Stone has said he had no inside information about the contents of the emails in WikiLeaks' possession or the timing of when they would be released.

He added he had been "falsely accused" of making false statements to the House intelligence committee, and says any error he made in his testimony wasn't intentional.

From July 22, 2016, onward, WikiLeaks published troves of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

The 66-year-old faces seven charges in connection with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Roger Stone spoke to the media on Friday after he posted bail following his arrest in an early morning raid by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. His case will be transferred to Washington, D.C.

Stone responded that "Organisation 1" would release "a load every week going forward".

Straining to make himself heard above the sound of protesters shouting, "Lock him up!"

A spokesman for Mueller's office said Stone, 66, was arrested in Fort Lauderdale on Friday morning after being indicted by a federal grand jury a day earlier. And last April, Stone's tone turned harsh, denouncing Credico as a "stoolie" who should be "prepared to die". Sanders did not offer an explanation as to how it was possible an increasing number of people in Trump's orbit who have been charged with criminal wrongdoing were acting without their boss's knowledge. But, beyond collusion, THERE ARE A LOT OF CRIMES that Trump, his campaign, and his enablers seem to have committed. Here's what we've learned from the new indictment against Stone, and what we can expect next. "He forgot to tell something to Congress and what it was was immaterial".

"Greatest Witch Hunt in the History of our Country! Border Coyotes, Drug Dealers and Human Traffickers are treated better".

The indictment said that Stone "was contacted by senior Trump Campaign officials to inquire about future releases by" WikiLeaks.

The indictment concerns Stone's communications with with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, whose group leaked tens of thousands of stolen Democratic Party emails that embarrassed Trump's rival Hillary Clinton in an apparent bid to influence the election. The Times noted that the indictment "left open the possibility that it was Mr. Trump" who directed Bannon to contact Stone.

After the October 7 releases, Stone boasted to "senior Trump Campaign officials" that he had correctly predicted the data dump, prosecutors say. "You got nothing. Keep running your mouth and I'll file a bar complaint against your friend [the attorney who had the ability to contact the head of Organization 1]". White House officials could not be immediately reached.

Stone has also previously insisted that he would never testify against Trump.

Stone also attempted to persuade a witness to provide false testimony and withhold information from the committee, the prosecutors said.

Instead, it accuses him of witness tampering, obstruction and false statements about his interactions related to WikiLeaks' release.

Credico and Stone would go on to have discussions about ongoing investigations.

"'Stonewall it. Plead the fifth", Stone wrote in a text message to Credico. Then the indictment alleges that Stone repeatedly lied about his efforts, including to Congress.

"I am so ready".
