But the indictment lays out in detail Stone's conversations about stolen Democratic emails posted by WikiLeaks in the weeks before Trump beat his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

According to the indictment, "a senior Trump Campaign official was directed to contact STONE about any additional releases and what other damaging information Organization 1 had regarding the Clinton Campaign". The indictment accuses Stone of carrying out a "prolonged effort" to keep NY radio host Randy Credico, referred to as Person 2, from contradicting his testimony before the House intelligence committee.

Prosecutors say Mr Stone was also contacted by unnamed "senior Trump campaign officials" to inquire about future Wikileaks releases. Stone assured him that WikiLeaks would release "a load every week going forward".

Stone insisted that he's innocent. "I will defeat them in court". He's the latest of Trump's associates to be involved in the investigation that some believe will lead to one place: Trump or members of his family. A grand jury for months had heard from witnesses connected to Stone.

"I will not testify against the president because I would have to bear false witness against him", Stone added.

But while the charges from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office are potentially serious, they were, once again, glaringly absent of a key accusation, one President Trump made sure to point out in his response online: "Greatest Witch Hunt in the History of our Country!"

In a tweet Friday, Podesta turned Stone's words against him by writing that it was now "Roger's time in the barrel". "NO COLLUSION! Border Coyotes, Drug Dealers and Human Traffickers are treated better". "Stone have nothing to do with the president, has nothing to do with the White House", spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told CNN.

Roger Stone, a political strategist and long-time ally of President Donald Trump, has been arrested in Florida.

A lawyer who once worked closely with Manafort and Gates, Van der Zwaan pleaded guilty in February to lying to Mueller's investigators about contacts with a Trump campaign official. It also included new details about Trump aides specifically asking Stone about forthcoming Wikileaks dumps. Instead it mirrors other Mueller cases in alleging cover-ups and deception, accusing Stone of lying to lawmakers about WikiLeaks, tampering with witnesses and obstructing a congressional probe into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian Federation to tip the election.

The 66-year-old Republican operative began working with Trump in 1980s.

He was Trump's national security adviser for less than a month in early 2017.

"This is not some casual, low-level contributor to the Trump Campaign. If they can do this to Roger. they are coming for us next!" "Time to let more than [the Clinton Campaign chairman] to be exposed as in bed w enemy if they are not ready to drop HRC".

His activities have always been scrutinised by both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Senate, and the charges are linked to an alleged Russian-led hack into the emails of Democratic Party officials during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The associate and the high-ranking campaign official are not named in the complaint, though the indictment describes how Stone told a reporter that what Assange had in the unreleased emails was good for the Trump campaign. And that's about whether or not he made false statements. He has denied taking part in any collusion with Russians.

Stone briefly served on Trump's campaign, but was pushed out amid infighting with then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. He did not immediately reply to a text message regarding the threats against Bianca. Stone has remained loyal, however.

On or about April 9, 2018, STONE wrote in an email to Person 2, "You are a rat".

In fact, Stone's political consulting work has always been as colorfully self-promoting as it has been combative, often finding him accused of disinformation and dirty tricks, some of which he eagerly does not deny. "Richard Nixon", prosecutors said.
