Roger Stone arrives at court for his arraignment

Roger Stone arrives at court for his arraignment

In his 24-page indictment of Stone, which laid out charges of witness tampering, obstruction of justice and lying to Congress, Mueller painted the clearest picture yet of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

President Trump's ally and former adviser Roger Stone is set to be arraigned Tuesday, after he was arrested early Friday morning, with prosecutors from special counsel Robert Mueller's team charging the longtime Republican operative with obstruction, witness tampering and lying to Congress about his communications with WikiLeaks.

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 arrived Tuesday in a black SUV wearing an all-blue suit and tie. Lauderdale home that a team of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided early Friday morning before he was charged with a seven-count indictment including lying to Congress, obstruction of justice and witness tampering.

Stone said he would've voluntary turned himself in if the Federal Bureau of Investigation contacted his attorneys.

Some political analysts say the emails, which highlighted disputes among Democrats, contributed to Trump's stunning defeat of election rival Hillary Clinton.

Roger Stone speaks after his appearance at Federal Court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on January 25, 2019. After obtaining information about Wikileaks dumping the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's hacked emails from Credico, Stone allegedly reported the information to Bannon, who was then-chief executive of Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

Thirty-four people have been swept up in the Mueller investigation.

It all started when a fan responded to one of her tweets announcing that something "exciting" was coming soon. Excuse me?! The full caption translates from Spanish to "I miss my husband".

Late-night hosts interpreted the end of the government shutdown and the arrest of Roger Stone.

"I will plead not guilty to these charges, I will defeat them in court", Stone said at a news conference on Friday.

The indictment does not accuse Stone of co-ordinating with Russian Federation or with WikiLeaks on the release of hacked Democratic emails. "My attorneys are highly confident that they can win an acquittal if I can get a fair trial in the District of Columbia".

"What a fun couple days, I'm loving the ride", Martin's Stone riffed.

"I do agree that Roger wanted me to find out from Wikileaks", Corsi said.

According to court documents, the indictment against Stone was sealed to minimize the risk that he'd destroy evidence.

The construction of that sentence does not make clear who gave that order to a senior campaign official, but raises the possibility the order came from Trump himself.
