FBI Agents Arrest Longtime Trump Confidant Roger Stone

Trump adviser Roger Stone arrested on seven charges

Trump associate arrested, faces obstruction charge

It also doesn't say that Stone had any special knowledge of WikiLeaks' plans.

Shortly after another email dump, "an associate of the high-ranking Trump Campaign official sent a text message to STONE that read 'well done'". Stone responded that "Organization 1" would release "a load every week going forward". In the indictment, Organization 1 is WikiLeaks. During that effort, prosecutors note that Stone repeatedly told Credico to "do a 'Frank Pentangeli,"' a reference to a character in The Godfather: Part II who lies before a congressional committee.

But House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, said in a statement that his committee "will be eager to learn just who directed a senior campaign official to contact Stone about additional damaging information held by Wikileaks" just "days before Donald Trump called on Russian Federation to "find the 30,000 emails that are missing" from Hillary Clinton's email server".

A video of the pre-dawn Federal Bureau of Investigation raid at Roger Stone's house in Florida shows agents in combat gear using night-vision equipment and running up to Stone's home and banging repeatedly on the door.

Then the Japanese failed to serve out the set, and that was the moment that something broke in her performance. The 17th-seeded Keys has reached the semifinals or better at three of the last five Grand Slam tournaments.

CNN video footage of the Federal Bureau of Investigation arresting Stone shows a group of agents approaching his home. "FBI, warrant!" Stone could then be seen in the doorway in his sleepwear before he was led away, CNN reported.

Stone is the sixth Trump associate charged by Mueller, joining a cast of Trump's former national security adviser, his campaign chairman, his former personal lawyer and two other campaign aides.

"The indictment was not unexpected, but it is still significant because it alleges coordination between the Trump Campaign and WikiLeaks", Barbara McQuade, a former US Attorney for the Eastern District of MI, said. Thanks to some ill-advised 2016 tweets and interviews, Stone has always been seen as the closest link between the Trump campaign and Julian Assange, whose organization Wikileaks released Democratic National Committee emails that had been stolen by Russian hackers in 2016. When Trump ultimately threw his hat in the race in the 2016 election cycle, Stone was by his side as a campaign adviser.

The FBI also executed a search warrant at Stone's NY residence, according to Kristin Davis who shares the duplex with Stone. What I can tell you is that these specific charges that have been brought against Mr. And the intelligence committee previous year voted to release a transcript of Stone's testimony to Mueller as a precursor to an indictment. The incitement quotes from those emails, which had previously been made public by news outlets.

CNN reporters, however, maintain that their producer, David Shortell, noticed unusual grand jury activity Thursday evening and staked out Stone's location early in the morning Friday in case Stone was indicted. Here's what we've learned from the new indictment against Stone, and what we can expect next. Stone told the press he will plead not guilty, and says he will not testify against the president. Stone left the campaign just a few months later - he said he quit, Trump said he was sacked - but stayed close, frequently holding late-night phone calls with the candidate to discuss strategy and messaging.

In the months following the election, House and Senate intelligence committees opened investigations into whether Russian Federation interfered with the 2016 election.

"By in or around early August 2016, STONE was claiming both publicly and privately to have communicated with Organization 1".

Mueller was appointed in May 2017 to investigate allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. The campaign said it fired him after he tried to grab too much of the spotlight while Stone insisted that he quit.
