Roger Stone Doesn't Plan to Cooperate with Robert Mueller

Steve Martin’s Roger Stone Has A Message For Donald Trump In ‘SNL’ Cold Open: ‘Pardon Me’

Stone was arrested early Friday at his Florida home.

President Trump's confidant appeared in federal court in Washington, DC, for arraignment on a seven-count indictment charging him with making false statements, obstruction and witness tampering.

After Stone's arrest, Trump sought to distance himself from his one-time aide, saying on Twitter, "Roger Stone didn't even work for me anywhere near the Election!"

The political operative and self-described dirty trickster faces charges that he lied to lawmakers, engaged in witness tampering and obstructed a congressional investigation into possible coordination between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. Moreover, he had an audience with the special counsel.

Stone, a Republican operative since the days of the Watergate scandal that forced his former boss, President Richard Nixon, to resign in 1974, smiled as he passed through a gauntlet of reporters upon arrival at the courthouse on Tuesday. WikiLeaks published thousands of the emails in various dumps.

"Stone thereafter told the Trump campaign about potential future releases of damaging material" by WikiLeaks, according to the indictment, which refers to the group as "Organization 1".

The anti-secrecy website published emails in the weeks before the 2016 presidential election that the US says were stolen from Democrats by Russian operatives.

He added that he didn't know which of Trump's senior campaign official were directed to talk to Stone to find out about further releases by WikiLeaks and said he only worked off of information Stone provided him. Stone has previously denied that he ever bullied other witnesses to change their testimony, which is another allegation he faces. It appears Stone's arrest took place during the pre-dawn hours, and involved such a large number of Federal Bureau of Investigation personnel, for the same reason.

Stone said he "categorically" had not destroyed or discarded communications devices, hard drives or other evidence."My lawyers have been insistent on this". "The charges against Mr. How cool is that", Martin's Stone screamed at the camera looking like Mister Magoo.

Pollack also pointed out the Mueller's team has never interviewed Assange.

Napolitano went on to say that Stone is loving the attention he's getting, which is why he's been so chatty ever since his arrest.

Trump has called the investigation a witch hunt and denied any collusion.

"But I'm targeted here because they want to silence me", he continued, listing several reasons why he believed the Friday pre-dawn raid was unnecessary, including his age, lack of passport and the fact that he doesn't own a weapon and is being "charged with non-violent process crimes".
