“Roger Stone, a longtime informal adviser to President Trump who has spent decades plying the dark arts of scandal-mongering and dirty tricks to help influence American political campaigns, was indicted Friday in the special counsel investigation,” the New York Times reports.
“Mr. Stone was charged with seven counts, including obstruction of an official proceeding, making false statements and witness tampering.”
The indictment also says Stone “was contacted by senior Trump campaign officials to inquire about future releases” of stolen information by Wikileaks.
After one WikiLeaks release, the indictment says an associate of a high-ranking Trump campaign official texted Stone “well done.”
CNN: “The indictment’s wording does not say who on the campaign knew about Stone’s quest, but makes clear it was multiple people.”Save to Favorites
