Donald Trump associate Roger Stone arrested on seven Mueller probe charges

Donald Trump associate Roger Stone arrested on seven Mueller probe charges”

Stone's role as someone catching the interest of Russian Federation probe investigators stems specifically from his publishing of cryptic tweets, including one August 21, 2016 that it would soon be Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta's "time in the barrel".

"This morning, at the crack of dawn, 29 Federal Bureau of Investigation agents arrived at my home with 17 vehicles with their lights flashing", he said.

Stone could then be seen in the doorway in his sleepwear before he was led away, CNN reported. Stone had been predicting his indictment for some time.

He is expected to appear in court later today. A judge released him on a $250,000 bond and ordered him to limit his travel to South Florida, New York City and Washington. Stone then communicated with his associates about getting more information on potential WikiLeaks releases.

Several people connected directly with Mr Trump have been indicted, including his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and Paul Manafort, the former chairman of his election campaign, who is in jail.

He is reported to be the investigator who arranged the meeting with former GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi in Ghana and overseas . They could also call the Police on telephone numbers: 0244623866, 0242814863 18555 and 191 respectively.

"That is correct", Stone said.

He added: "Once again, there is no evidence of Russian collusion, Wikileaks collaboration and I'm not charged with doing anything inappropriate or illegal to assist in his [Mr Trump's] election".

Stone on the steps of the courthouse called the investigation an "inquisition" that was "related in no way to Russian collusion or WikiLeaks collaboration". "Mueller seeks to criminalize normal political activities by Roger Stone while ignoring the blatantly illegal activities of the Clinton campaign and the Obama NSA, DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation".

The indictment does not allege that Stone had contact with "Individual 1" - a.k.a Donald Trump - about the hack, but it extensively details how Stone coordinated with "Organization 1" - a.k.a. Wikileaks - about the impending release of illegally stolen documents. Members of Trump's campaign team reportedly asked Stone to reach out to WikiLeaks, according to the indictment. It says the Trump campaign directed a senior campaign official to contact Stone after the July 22, 2016, WikiLeaks release of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and other groups. Shortly afterwards, STONE received an email from the high-ranking Trump Campaign official asking about the status of future releases by Organization 1. Stone warned Credico he would get "indicted for perjury" because he could contradict Stone's testimony.

Stone was charged in a seven-count indictment that includes witness tampering, obstruction and false-statements charges but has long maintained his innocence. Let's get it on. That is because Stone, a self-professed "dirty trickster", is also a self-professed dog fanatic. He also said Stone did not receive materials from WikiLeaks ahead of their public release.

PG&E Sinks After Announcing Plans to File for Bankruptcy
State fire officials pointed to damage to PG&E poles and power lines as the cause of more than a dozen fires that year. The company said it would look to hire a new chief executive with "extensive operational and safety expertise".

Born in CT in 1952, Mr Stone first got involved in politics at the age of 8, agitating for Democratic candidate John F Kennedy.

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones said on Friday his "spidey sense" indicated that special counsel Robert Mueller would try to shut down his InfoWars platform. Stone don't have anything to do with the president'.

In a tweet Friday, Podesta wrote it was now "Roger's time in the barrel". They also described a radio host who Stone had known for more than 10 years, which matches the profile of Randy Credico. But if an already "senior" official "was directed" to contact Stone, few would presumably have the authority to do such directing.

Credico hasn't been accused of any wrongdoing.
