FBI arrests Roger Stone, former advisor of President Trump



A federal grand jury has indicted Donald Trump associate Roger Stone on charges of lying about the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced Friday.

Stone has been arrested and faces a court appearance later today, it added.

“The indictment, which was unsealed upon arrest, contains seven counts: one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements, and one count of witness tampering,” Mueller’s office said in a statement.

Stone, a veteran political consultant and long-time adviser to Trump, has repeatedly said he is innocent and that Mueller is conducting a vendetta against him and the president.

The allegations revolve around Stone’s alleged contacts with WikiLeaks, the organization that released thousands of emails about Democrats during the 2016 election in an effort to damage Trump opponent Hillary Clinton.

“During the summer of 2016, STONE spoke to senior Trump Campaign officials about Organization 1 and information it might have had that would be damaging to the Clinton Campaign,” the indictment said. “STONE was contacted by senior Trump Campaign officials to inquire about future releases by Organization 1.”

Organization 1 is a reference to WikiLeaks.
