Former Trump's Advisor to cooperate in Mueller's investigation


A former Trump campaign adviser is coming to the defense of Roger Stone just days after he was indicted by the special counsel.

Stone appeared in federal court for the District of Columbia before Magistrate Judge Deborah Robinson.

Stone's attorney, Robert Buschel, entered the plea on his client's behalf. A status hearing was scheduled for February 1.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano does not approve of the excessive force he thinks the Federal Bureau of Investigation used when they arrested Roger Stone last week.

"You are directing Stone to take possession of what he knows to be stolen materials", said Rosenzweig, now a fellow at the R Street Institute think tank.

Stone also vowed not to turn on the President.

The anti-secrecy website published emails in the weeks before the 2016 presidential election that the USA says were stolen from Democrats by Russian operatives. Less than an hour after the tape leaked in October 2016, WikiLeaks began dumping emails Russian Federation stole from Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, which, while they contained no actual new scandals, muddied the waters of the overall reporting climate in Trump's favor. Instead, it accuses him of witness tampering, obstruction, and false statements about his interactions related to WikiLeaks.

Between Trump's capitulation on the government shutdown and the arrest of his close associate Roger Stone, Meyers said, "it's not often that a single event sums up an entire presidency but on Friday, we got one that came pretty close". He's due in court in Washington on Tuesday morning.

Then, led by CNN's Jake Tapper and seventeen cameramen and sound engineers, the FBI Agents shackled Stone and carried him out to a waiting armored auto, pausing only to strike a few heroic poses for the cameras before driving Stone to a military air transport where he was locked in a cage last used for Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs.

The absence of a definitive answer to the collusion question, more than 20 months into Mueller's work, has given the president and his allies a wedge to attack the investigation. The list also includes his former presidential campaign chair, Paul Manafort, and Manafort's colleague, Rick Gates, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos.

"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". Manafort, Gates and Flynn are awaiting sentencing. His lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, mocked the case as "nothing more than another false statement charge" and speculated without evidence that Mueller's inquiry was nearing an end.
